Eleanor Roosevelt’s Wisdom

Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt was a remarkable woman who played a significant role in shaping American politics and society during the mid-20th century. She was also a great thinker. I have, written down in my journal, some of her great quotes, that are forever relevant.

Here are eleven of my favorite Eleanor Roosevelt quotes I have often used in my writings.

  1. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
  2. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
  3. Do one thing every day that scares you.
  4. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
  5. Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.
  6. It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself.
  7. You must do the things you think you cannot do.
  8. Friendship with oneself is all-important because, without it, one cannot be friends with anybody else in the world.
  9. The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
  10. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
  11. You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.
