The teachings of the Bible

“Every thinking man, when he thinks, realizes that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure ourselves what that life would be if these standards were removed. We would lose almost all the standards by which we now judge both public and private morals, all the standards which we, with more or less resolution, strive to raise ourselves.”

Theodore Roosevelts published works were found to contain over 4,200 Biblical images, inferences, and quotations. His unpublished letters contained thousands more.
[James Lever, “The Roosevelt Mythos” 1923. p 191]
