"When I was a young man, Theodore Roosevelt was President. He attracted national attention when he said: "I wish to preach not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of of strenuous life." He said of himself, let me wear out, not rust out. He told young men to hit the line hard. He told women not to shirk their prime function to bear children. He said this at a time when any woman who had more than two children was considered sub-human, if not a little indecent."
