I have a crazy friend who, in college, used to walk around campus complaining that the late Eleanor Roosevelt was beaming waves into his brain. We all need a friend like that.
Here's some quotes from her that have been beaming into my brain today. I think they're great blog quotes, too:
Women are like teabags. We don't know our true strength until we are in hot water!
As for accomplishments, I just did what I had to do as things came along.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
For it isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.
I have spent many years of my life in opposition, and I rather like the role.
I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.
Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.
When all is said and done, and statesmen discuss the future of the world, the fact remains that people fight these wars.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'
You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give.
You must do the things you think you cannot do.
