“President Roosevelt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for his role in negotiating the end of the Russo-Japanese War. Roosevelt believed that if Japan had devastated Russia, it would lead to an imbalance of power in the Pacific, one that the United States would eventually have to realign , but at a disastrous cost(Bio.com editors).”
“Taking a keen interest in the Spanish-American War, Roosevelt left his government post to organize a volunteer cavalry known as the Rough Riders, which he led in a bold charge up San Juan Hill in the Battle of San Juan Heights, in 1898. A war hero, and nominated for the Medal of Honor, Roosevelt was elected governor of New York in 1898(Bio.com editors).”
“‘One word only, my lords, and suitors of the famous queen. One thing I have to say. There is no pain, no burden for the heart when blows come to a man, and he defending his own cattle - his own cows and lambs. Here it was otherwise. Antinous hit me for being driven on by hunger - how many bitter seas men cross for hunger! If beggars interest the gods, if there are Furies pent in the dark to avenge a poor man’s wrong, then may Antinous meet his death before his wedding day’”(Homer 1235-1246)!
“‘So much for that. Your clean-cut game is over. Now watch me hit a target that no man has hit before, if I can make this shot. Help me, Apollo.’ He drew to his fist the cruel head of an arrow for Antinous just as the young man leaned to lift his beautiful drinking cup, the wine was even at his lips: and did he dream of death? How could he? In that revelry amid his throng of friends who would imagine a single foe - though a strong foe indeed - could dare to bring death’s pain on him and darkness on his eyes”(Homer 1409-1418)?
