Life Motto


 
-Teddy Roosevelt to Larry the Night Watchman; 'Night at the Museum'

While not an original Teddy Roosevelt quote (credit must be given to Shakespeare) this line accurately portrays the kind of leader Roosevelt was: determined, resourceful, self-reliant.

What is your life motto?  (Write your answer on your own sheet of paper.  Include an explanation of what that motto means to you.)

Was Roosevelt born great?  (Copy the question and then list 3 'obstacles' to TR's greatness and how he overcame them.)
