Eleanor, my leading lady:

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by 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.’”

“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.”

“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.”

“It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness.”

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

And…finally:

“I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.”

She is my new favorite (dead) person.
