‘Look fear in the face’

by bethanybump

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” —Eleanor Roosevelt

I think if anybody studies Eleanor’s life, even just skimming the surface, they can see she was possibly one of the wisest human beings to grace our Earth. Does someone want to buy me her biography for Christmas?
