You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)
American political figure,
diplomat, pacifist and activist.
She was the First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945.
“I love this quote. It grabbed my attention long ago. You must do the thing you think you cannot do because sometimes something will present itself and, we think, ‘oh, there’s no way I can do that.’ And I say, indeed, you can or it would not have shown up on your radar screen. Nothing presents itself to be done by us except those things that, in fact, are meant to be done by us.”
