Funny quote by Theodore Roosevelt

A funny quote by Theodore Roosevelt is the topic of this blog post.

“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.” Theodore Roosevelt

“As I look back on my life I sometimes wonder if Teddy Roosevelt did not make a huge understatement. As the old saying goes, it is not what happens to you that matters, it is what you do with what happens to you that matters. I have learned through long and hard experience that how you respond to events in your life largely determines the course of your life. Circumstances beyond your control can definitely affect you in the short run but in the long run your actions will determine how your life turns out. Anyone who takes responsibility for their own life has taken the first step towards changing their life for the better. I know that when I accepted that I was responsible for my own life just over 5 years ago my life began to change for the better.” Stan Burman
