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.'
Eleanor Roosevelt

Other quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

I can not believe that war is the best solution. No one won the last war, and no one will win the next war.

What you don't do can be a destructive force.

It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.
