Eleanor Roosevelt Quotes

It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself.

"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."

"Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people”

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.

"In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”

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

"Understanding is a two-way street.”

"Only a man's character is the real criterion of worth.”

"We have to face the fact that either all of us are going to die together or we are going to learn to live together and if we are to live together we have to talk.”

"Women are like teabags. We don't know our true strength until we are in hot water!”

"Sometimes I wonder if we shall ever grow up in our politics and say definite things which mean something, or whether we shall always go on using generalities to which everyone can subscribe, and which mean very little.”

I could not at any age be content to take my place in a corner by the fireside and simply look on.

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