Theodore Roosevelt: An Autobiography ...
Macmillan, 1913 - 615 páginas
Theodore Roosevelt was a prolific writer even from an early age. Throughout his career, he composed dozens of histories, biographies and essays, and in this latest work, he has turned his keen eye on himself. Never being short on confidence, this autobiography examines his sickly youth and how it shaped his ebullient personality and vigor for life. Spanning nearly 700 pages, few social or political issues go undiscussed as he narrates the tenure of his presidency on to what he calls "The Peace of Righteousness."

Página 237 - The most important factor in getting the right spirit in my Administration, next to the insistence upon courage, honesty, and a genuine democracy of desire to serve the plain people was my insistence upon the theory that the executive power was limited only by specific restrictions and prohibitions appearing in the Constitution or imposed by the Congress under its Constitutional powers.
