Theodore Roosevelt Quote: Far And Away The Best Prize…

theodore roosevelt far and away

In this post, we are going to look at the meaning of a quote by Theodore Roosevelt which says: “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.

Meaning of the quote.

Today’s quote urges us to be busy at work worth doing.

And you must not try to find excuses to avoid work; and not hide while others toil.

You must also pass duty off to someone else; but rather to seize the prize, and get busy doing what must be done.

No work seems to be better or worse, and there is no exception for the unpleasant chores. Just the simple recognition that all jobs have worth, as do all people.

Combining these two concepts will lead to the greatest prize in life, the awesome feeling that comes with doing a job, working hard, and giving our best.

Yes, it may be hot, it may be tiring, and it may be thankless; but you will know you did it.

And that is what is most important.

Have a nice day!
