Wise Words from Eleanor, Nice to Post on Facebook or A Blog


Sometimes as I go about my day, I encounter very arrogant people who attempt to shame or discount me. Once upon a time, it would have worked, and stressed and saddened me. Now, I ignore such attempts, or use the stare/silence duo on them: A cool stare, held, while not saying anything. There is much power in silence, sometimes, yet much power in words, too. 

I very much like this quote of Eleanor Roosevelt's:


Thank'ee for stopping by. I think this could look nice on FB or a bloggie.

    I first encountered this concept in my twenties, when a friend told another friend with an abusive husband, "You can't be a doormat unless you lie down." I liked Eleanor's version much better, when I came across it.

  • Linda Wildenstein

    Totally inappropriate share coming from me but.....my granddaughter calls that expression you described as "the eat shit and die" look. She's right, wonder who she learned that from??????????????? hehehehe

  • Olde Dame Penniwig

    Joanne, yes, I think Eleanor's version is very kind and dignified.

    Linda, my my, that grand-daughter of yours is very impish in her expressions!

  • Paula Kaye

    This has always been one of my favorite quotes! I tell this to my granddaughter all the time!
