Day 356: Eleanor Roosevelt

When I was a teenager, I was obsessed with Eleanor Roosevelt quotes. I lived on her quotes, I reacted them in my head over and over again, each time I faced adversity. So today I just wanted to share some of my favourite Eleanor Roosevelt quotes.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water.

We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.”

“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”

If someone betrays you once, it’s their fault; if they betray you twice, it’s your fault.

Happiness is not a goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived.”

“It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.”

Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn’t have the power to say yes.

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.


Thank you for reading.
