Theodore Roosevelt loved anything that challenged the body or the mind. He had a fondness for brain teasers. This one was his favorite:

I talk, but I do not speak my mind.
I hear words, but I do not listen to thoughts.
When I wake, all see me.
When I sleep, all hear me.
Many heads are on my shoulders.
Many hands are at my feet.
The strongest steel cannot break my visage,
But the softest whisper can destroy me.
The quietest whimper can be heard.

Who am I?
