When Teddy Roosevelt was shot before his 90-minute campaign speech in 1912, he addressed the crowd by saying: ‘Friends, I shall ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose. But fortunately I had my manuscript, so you see I was going to make a long speech, and there is a bullet- there is where the bullet went through- and it probably saved me from it going into my heart. The bullet is in me now, so that I cannot make a very long speech, but I will try my best.’ Source
