Today's Quote
Eleanor Roosevelt

A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Ambition is pitiless. Any merit that it cannot use it finds despicable.

Eleanor Roosevelt

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.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.

Eleanor Roosevelt
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.
Eleanor Roosevelt

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.'
Eleanor Roosevelt
