Quote from Eleanor Roosevelt:
Somewhere along the line of development we discover what we really are and then make our real decision for which we are responsible. Make that decision primarily for yourself because you can never really live anyone else's lie, not even your child's. The influence you exert is through your own life and what you become yourself.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look at fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." You must do the think you think you cannot do.
I learned then that practically no one in the world is entirely bad or entirely good, and that motives are often more important than actions.
A stumbling block to the pessimist is a stepping-stone to the optimist.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You must do the think you think you cannot do.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
The hard part of loving is that one has to learn so often to let go of those we love, so they can do things, so they can grow, so they can return to us with an even richer, deeper love.
Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can choose a challenge instead of a competence.
