Women's History Month: Eleanor Roosevelt on strength

Eleanor Roosevelt was most definitely a woman ahead of her time. She believed in a generation of dreamers and doers, of people not being afraid to live life to the fullest. And nothing, she stressed, should ever stop you, especially something as silly and insignificant as whether you were a man or a woman.

"A woman is like a tea bag -- you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water."

This is so true, don't you think, friends? When are you surprised by your utter strength? How has it helped you in life? xoxo

P.S. More inspiring quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt.


  1. I named my daughter after Eleanor Roosevelt because of her strength & foresight. I believe women should be strong... not because we're women & we have something to prove, but because we are humans.

  2. I am surprised more and more by inner strength through the decades - with each passing chapter of life (20s, 30s, 40s). The old adage is so true "with age comes wisdom". You really become more grounded and solid in who you are.
