OLD Quote Of The Week
"If a man continually blusters, if he lacks civility, a big stick will not save him from trouble. In private life, there are few beings more obnoxious than the man who is always loudly boasting, and if the boaster is not prepared to back up his words, his position becomes absolutely contemptible. So it is with the nation."
Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States - in observations from another time that may have application to the tenor of current times.
