On this Day in T.R. History - "Man In The Area" - 23 April 1910
T.R. delivered his famous speech "Citizenship in a Republic" at the Sorbonne in Paris. Throughout today we will post OTHER famous quotes from that speech; here is the first:

"The gravest wrong upon his country is inflicted by that man, whatever his station, who seeks to make his countrymen divide primarily on the line that separates class from class, occupation from occupation, men of more wealth from men of less wealth, instead of remembering that the only safe standard is that which judges each man on his worth as a man, whether he be rich or poor, without regard to his profession or to his station in life."
