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 not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.

The giving of love is an education in itself.

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

A little simplification would be the first step toward rational living, I think.

People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
