Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962) was an American political figure, diplomat, pacifist and activist.

She was the first lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945, during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office, making her the longest-serving first lady of the United States.

Roosevelt served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952, and in 1948 she was given a standing ovation by the assembly upon their adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

President Harry S. Truman later called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements.

Some of her most famous quotes about leadership and personal growth include the following:

“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyway.”

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

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

“You can often change your circumstances by changing your attitude.”

“It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.”

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

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”

“A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”
