It is "Speak Softly and carry a big stick" at here the big stick means the US Military, for example the canal in Panama, the US did not want to go all around Latin America to get supplies to the other side of the US or other countries so they wanted to build a canal so it can decrease the time. First the Columbia people had control of Panama so they did not want the US to intervent them, so then TR used the Big Stick Diplomacy to let Panama independence and get rid of the Colombia's then the Panama's would let the US build the canal. This is a example from the Big Stick Diplomacy, hope this helps. And also this happened during 1901.
Securing the Panama Canal was a prime example of "Big Stick" diplomacy. Roosevelt recognized the importance of the canal to the United States, but so did the countries that were involved in the construction. They hiked up the prices to force the US to pay them more. In response, Roosevelt manipulated the situation in Panama to spark a revolution. He encouraged them to break away from Columbia, and funded them doing so. It brought down the construction prices, and it gained the United States permanent access to the canal.
"Speak softly, and carry a big stick." In other words, don't make empty threats; do what you say you'll do. And when dealing with other governments, sometimes you want other governments to worry about what you CAN do, even if you haven't said what you PLAN to do. Don't bluster and threaten; just act.
And sometimes, even when you talk, you don't need a lot of words. An Arab warlord named Raisuli kidnapped a Greek-American citizen named Pericardis and held him for ransom. Roosevelt's telegram to the local government was "Pericardis alive, or Raisuli dead."
Sometimes, good foreign policies last forever.

Well, one effect was my ginormous dick enlargement.
Roosevelt's Corollary was an addition to the Monroe Doctrine that declared the United States could intervene, or use military force to keep peace, in Latin American countries when necessary. Dollar Diplomacy focused on business. Taft believed the United States should invest in other countries to maintain and increase its power. Wall street bankers backed loans made by US business to foreign countries. Basically, Roosevelt's "big stick" was military and Taft's "big stick" was business.
