Quote du jour/Theodore Roosevelt

I bought the DVDs of The Roosevelts by Ken Burns for Tom this Christmas, and as I was watching this evening I heard this.

After marrying Alice Hathaway Lee, Theodore Roosevelt wrote in his diary:
Our intense happiness is too sacred to be written about.
Isn't this just so amazingly different from many people now who proclaim their love everywhere? Sometimes I think too much is said to the world that should be between the couple.

  1. I loved each episode of The Roosevelts and you're right of course about too much written. I am a sucker for a good love story though, whether fiction or real.

  2. I couldn't agree with you, and Teddy, more.
