Franklin D. Roosevelt Quotes

“In the future days,
which we seek to make secure,
we look forward to a world founded upon
four essential human freedoms.

The first is freedom of speech and expression–
everywhere in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God
in his own way–everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want
–which, translated into world terms,
means economic understandings which will secure
to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants
-everywhere in the world.

The fourth is freedom from fear
–which, translated into world terms,
means a world-wide reduction of armaments
to such a point and in such a thorough fashion
that no nation will be in a position to commit
an act of physical aggression against any neighbor
–anywhere in the world.”
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt


“Let us never forget
that government is ourselves
and not an alien power over us.
The ultimate rulers of our democracy
are not a President and Senators
and Congressmen and Government officials
but the voters of this country.”
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
