Eleanor Roosevelt.

Do you even know how f*cking inspiring, revolutionary, strong willed & good spirited Eleanor Roosevelt was?  I had a holy shit moment while reading Kelly Cutrone's second book 'Normal Gets You Nowhere'.  She was mentioning all the phenomenal achievements Eleanor attained throughout her life.  I don't understand why she doesn't have a dollar bill out there with her face on it.  They should replace the Statue of Liberty's face with Eleanor's.

Can you imagine your husband having an affair, but still having your shit together?  She was rarely in the White House with her husband, her focus was on civil rights and equal rights for all.  I suggest you read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I could go on and on about how much I appreciate this woman, but I believe there is something called 'google' and you need to see for yourself how fantastic this woman is.  So for now, enjoy some pictures and quotes.

"No matter how plain a woman may be if truth and loyalty are stamped upon her face all will be attracted to her."

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

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.”

“Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.” 

“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 have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“Remember always that you have not only the right to be an individual; you have an obligation to be one. You cannot make any useful contribution in life unless you do this.”
