It's the birthday of the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, born in Hyde Park, New York (1882). He said: "Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."
He also said, "I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm."
And he said, "Remember you are just an extra in everyone else's play."
