Quotation of the Day

Courtesy of A.Word.A.Day:

"A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity." -- Eleanor Roosevelt, diplomat and writer (1884-1962)


  1. So is it good or bad
    that Harry Potter Rocks
    made it to the
    zone today ???

  2. Oh if I could go through my life with such grace!

  3. Definitely words to live by. Yet if everyone managed to do so, there wouldn't be any interesting stories for us writers. :)

  4. Eleanor Roosevelt, what a remarkable woman! It is amazing all the good that she actually was able to accomplish.

    "Surely, in the light of history, it is more intelligent to hope rather than to fear, to try rather than not to try. For one thing we know beyond all doubt: Nothing has ever been achieved by the person who says, `It can't be done.'"
    -- Eleanor Roosevelt
