Honesty Is An Absolute Prerequisite To An Enduring Republic

Theodore Roosevelt

“We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty if we expect our republic permanently to endure. Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public. Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matters not how brilliant his capacity.” – Theodore Roosevelt
