The Gift

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

Eleanor Roosevelt

I always liked this saying and recently someone on the children’s writing email list I’m on, provided some background to this saying:

According to The Columbia World of Quotations, an article in the Catholic Digest (St. Paul, Minnesota, Oct. 1960) quoted Eleanor as saying this as a warning to wives of future presidents. So, a bit of trivia in today’s gift.
