Quote from Theodore Roosevelt,

"We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty
if we expect our republic permanently to endure.
Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite
to efficient service to the public.
Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life;
it matters not how brilliant his capacity."


Theodore Roosevelt (more quotes by Theodore Roosevelt or books by/about Theodore Roosevelt)
