I Wish I New More about Eleanor

The rhyming just happened…I like it.

The other day I was searching for weight loss quotes and found this one.

No one can make you feel inferior without your permission

And this one

You must do the things you think you cannot do.

What do they have in common?
hey are written by the wonderful Eleanor Roosevelt.

I hate to admit that the most I know of her is her character in Annie and her quotes. Oh, she was a wise woman…I so just want to spend hours reading about her (I wish I had that kind of time).

I really hope that none of my readers come along and burst my bubble about her.

Do you know her quotes? Have you read them?

I feel sometimes like my blog does not provide any information for anyone other then me (and JAG), so today let me give you a lesson in the BEST Eleanor Roosevelt quotes.

These are my favorite:

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


Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.


I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.


In all our contacts it is probably the sense of being really needed and wanted which gives us the greatest satisfaction and creates the most lasting bond.


Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.


The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.


The giving of love is an education in itself.


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.

Don’t you just love it? Those are just a few…she was a woman after my own heart and the major gift of gab!


PS…yes I am on the weight loss kick…I have posted some awesome Video Blogs on a website, but I am not sure I want to share them with you yet…I know…rude huh?
