Franklin Delano Roosevelt Quotes:

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."

"Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort."


First as NY State Senator, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy, then as Governor of New York followed by an unprecedented 4 terms as US President, FDR saw us out of the Great Depression, created the New Deal projects, led us through World War II, pushed the founding of the United Nations, and created the Social Security System. He is often considered by historians as one of the greatest U.S. Presidents, along with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.


Many college and university faculty, professional writers, actors/actresses researching roles, radio and television production companies, graduate and undergraduate students all have occasions to use the archives to be found in the FDR Library in Hyde Park, New York. For many the trip to Hyde Park is both time consuming and expensive. Using Ken Moody's services can enhance your research efforts and lower the cost of examining large numbers of archived documents and photographs.
