Inspirational quotes

Inspirational quote is a short read but can have a profound positive impact on the way we think. It can help to unstuck our mind as we borrow the thinking of famous thinkers.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” ― Henry Ford

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.- Steve Jobs

“Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.”- Andrew Jackson

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”- William Shakespeare

“Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better.”- Harvey Mackay

“Positive thinking will let you use the ability which you have, and that is awesome.”- Zig Ziglar

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation, but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking.” ― Eckhart Tolle

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” ― Michael Michalko

We should read content that can positively impact our mind on a daily basis so that it stick to our mind.

Eleanor Roosevelt- Her Quotes And Books

These are my favorite quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt.
– “You must do the things you think you cannot do.”
– “No one can make you inferior without your consent.”
– “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 lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.”
– “You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”
– “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’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.”

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962, was an American politician, diplomat, and activist. She was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, having held the post from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office, and served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952. President Harry S. Truman later called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements.

I found a few great books from Eleanor Roosevelt on Amazon.

The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt

280 pages

A candid and insightful look at an era and a life through the eyes of one of the most remarkable Americans of the twentieth century, First Lady and humanitarian Eleanor Roosevelt.

The daughter of one of New York’s most influential families, niece of Theodore Roosevelt, and wife of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt witnessed some of the most remarkable decades in modern history, as America transitioned from the Gilded Age, the Progressive Era, and the Depression to World War II and the Cold War.

A champion of the downtrodden, Eleanor drew on her experience and used her role as First Lady to help those in need. Intimately involved in her husband’s political life, from the governorship of New York to the White House, Eleanor would eventually become a powerful force of her own, heading women’s organizations and youth movements, and battling for consumer rights, civil rights, and improved housing. In the years after FDR’s death, this inspiring, controversial, and outspoken leader would become a U.N. Delegate, chairman of the Commission on Human Rights, a newspaper columnist, Democratic party activist, world-traveler, and diplomat devoted to the ideas of liberty and human rights.

This single volume biography brings her into focus through her own words, illuminating the vanished world she grew up, her life with her political husband, and the post-war years when she worked to broaden cooperation and understanding at home and abroad.

The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt includes 16 pages of black-and-white photos and an afterword by Eleanor Roosevelt’s granddaughter

An open, unrestrained look into her mind and heart as well as a clarion call to action, Tomorrow Is Now is the work Eleanor Roosevelt willed herself to stay alive to finish writing. For this edition, former U.S. President Bill Clinton contributes a new foreword and Roosevelt historian Allida Black provides an authoritative introduction focusing on Eleanor Roosevelt’s diplomatic career.

Inspirational Quote Of The Day 25/12/2015

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, non- apologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.”
Stephen Covey
