• “Our Army is a mighty arm of the tree of liberty. It is a living part of the American tradition, a tradition that goes back to Israel Putnam, who left his plow in a New England furrow to take up a gun and fight at Bunker Hill.” ~Franklin Roosevelt, March 20, 1942

  • “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself . . . On my part and on yours we face our common difficulties. They concern, thank God, only material things . . . Where there is no vision the people perish. (Pr. 29:18) . . . In this dedication of a nation we humbly ask the blessing of God. May He protect each and every one of us! May He guide me in the days to come.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President. Inaugural Address, March 4, 1933

  • “Hitler advanced: That the individual human being has no rights whatsoever in himself … no right to a soul of his own, or a mind of his own, or a tongue of his own, or a trade of his own; or even to live where he pleases or to marry the woman he loves; That his only duty is the duty of obedience, not to his God, not to his conscience, but to Adolf Hitler . . . His only value is his value, not as a man, but as a unit of the Nazi state.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt, December 15, 1941

  • “Government to him [Adolph Hitler] is not the servant . . . of the people but their absolute master and the dictator of their every act . . . The rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness which seemed to the Founders of the Republic inalienable, were, to Hitler and his fellows, empty words . . .” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt (December 15, 1941)

  • “We have seen the treacherous use of the ‘fifth column’ by which persons supposed to be peaceful visitors were actually a part of an enemy unit of occupation. Lightning attacks, capable of destroying airplane factories and munition works hundreds of miles behind the lines, are a part of the new technique of modern war . . . We must be strong in heart and mind; strong in our faith… I, too, pray for peace…but I am determined to face the fact realistically that this nation requires also a toughness of moral and physical fiber . . . These are the characteristics of a free people…a people willing to defend a way of life that is precious to them all, a people who put their faith in God.” ~Franklin Roosevelt, December 29, 1940

  • “Their secret emissaries are active in our own and in neighboring countries. They seek to stir up…dissension to cause internal strife. They try to turn capital against labor, and vice versa. They try to reawaken long slumbering racial and religious enmities which should have no place in this country . . . These trouble-breeders have but one purpose. It is to divide our people into hostile groups and to destroy our unity and shatter our will to defend ourselves. There are also American citizens, many of them in high places, who, unwittingly in most cases, are aiding and abetting the work of these agents. I do not charge these American citizens with being foreign agents. But I do charge them with doing exactly the kind of work that the dictators want done in the United States.” ~Franklin Roosevelt, December 29, 1940

  • “No nation can appease the Nazis. No man can tame a tiger into a kitten by stroking it. There can be no appeasement with ruthlessness. There can be no reasoning with an incendiary bomb. We know now that a nation can have peace with the Nazis only at the price of total surrender . . . The American appeasers ignore the warning to be found in the fate of Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, and France . . . They call it a ‘negotiated peace.’ Nonsense! Is it a negotiated peace if a gang of outlaws surrounds your community and on threat of extermination makes you pay tribute to save your own skins? Such a dictated peace would be no peace at all.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt, December 29, 1940
