Happy Birthday Eleanor Roosevelt!

Today, October 11, would be Eleanor Roosevelt’s 128th birthday.

Yes, she was a First Lady, a philanthropist, reformer, and mother but what I love about her is she was crafty! If you google Eleanor Roosevelt Images, you will get the impression that  if she was not in formal wear, she was knitting.

Eleanor Roosevelt Quotes:

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor RooseveltThis is My Story

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.”

“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”

  1. That was interesting. She was a remarkable lady. When I worked at O’Hare I fueled the airplane she was flying to New York with Adlai Stevenson and I watched and waved as they boarded the DC-6.
