Famous Roosevelt Quote Found Above Garbage Can

Look what I found nailed above a trash can BEHIND a building in the Florida Keys! It’s a famous quote by the 26th President of the United States, Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt. Yes, vandals have distorted two of the words “who” & “suffer” so adjust your reading of it accordingly.

This astonishing man of history has so many accolades associated with his name that it would take many paragraphs to list them all… so I’ll be satisfied by sharing four: 1) He led a Calvary regiment of the US Army into Cuba in 1898 known as the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War, earning him the Medal of Honor. 2) The world-famous Teddy Bear gets its first name after him. 3) His image graces yet another world-famous icon, this is a mountain near Keystone, South Dakota known as Mount Rushmore. 4) Roosevelt has consistently been ranked by scholars as one of the greatest U.S. Presidents.

In finding this hidden gem of historical quotes I realize yet again how lucky I am to find and seek out such items and then pass them on to you. I LOVE MY JOB!

You can find this famous “Teddy” Roosevelt quote at Mile Marker 79.9 on the left hand side of US-1 South behind the Bud & Mary’s Marina building nailed above a garbage can.
