Eleanor Roosevelt
“We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt
“I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do ...”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Oscar Wilde
“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people's lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognises infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. It is not selfish to think for oneself. A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. It is grossly selfish to require of one's neighbour that he should think in the same way, and hold the same opinions. Why should he? If he can think, he will probably think differently. If he cannot think, it is monstrous to require thought of any kind from him. A red rose is not selfish because it wants to be a red rose. It would be horribly selfish if it wanted all the other flowers in the garden to be both red and roses.”
Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man and Prison Writings

Eleanor Roosevelt
“Don't call a woman a bitch. Call her an ass-hole. It still gets your point across and it's not sexist.”
Eleanor Roosevelt
