I have always loved quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt.

She was such an empowering, insightful and intelligent woman!

She was the longest serving first lady of the U.S., and picked up so many nuggets of wisdom along the way, she did what any good woman would do – shared it!

Everything from your dreams, your love life, ambitions, this lady had a way of putting everything you’re feeling in to words.

So here are 11 inspiring quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt.

1. “a Woman is like a Tea Bag; You Never Know How Strong It is until It’s in Hot Water.”

“a Woman is like a Tea Bag; You Never Know How Strong It is until It’s in Hot Water.”

One of the best quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt describes women perfectly.

This isn’t to be used as a platform for feminism, but a motivating quote to remind you that no matter what you go through in life, you will come out on top.

We all have days when we feel like we can’t do something, or moments in our lives where we feel like everything hinges on just one moment.

But guess what – like this first lady said, you’ll never know how strong you are until you’re not given a choice.

So own your surroundings!

2. “No One Can Make You Feel Inferior without Your Consent.”

“No One Can Make You Feel Inferior without Your Consent.”

I love this quote, and it has always stuck with me.

It reminds us all that within each one of us is the power to never, ever feel less than someone else.

No one in the world has the power to make you feel less than them, the only person who holds that ability is you.

Feeling inferior is a choice that comes through your actions and words.

So always remember that no one out there can bring you down if you don’t let them.2

3. “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.”

“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.”

Of all the quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt that I’ve discovered over the years, this one has stuck with me the longest.

The full quote says this: "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." The reason it’s stuck with me all these years is because after reading this quote, I understood what everyone meant by ‘face your fears.’ Once you’ve gone through what scares you, you know yourself, you understand what you can handle, and that is strength at its best.

“It Takes as Much Energy to Wish as It Does to Plan.”
