Now – drumroll – another amazing quote:
What Eleanor is saying in this quote is that only if you agree with what a person is saying to you it can have any value.
Absolutely no one, but you, has control over your brain! You can only be insulted/hurt/put down by a person if you decide that what they have to say to you is true. More often than not what a person (you included) say to other people has everything to do with them and not the person they are saying it to. So when you realise this basically no one can insult you ever again!
The next quote might be my favourite quote of all times!
People are obsessed with talking about other people. How much greater aren’t conversations about ideas? They make us feel better and opens our minds. Gossiping about others really is only a reflection of ourselves (same as the quote above this one).
Exactly! Doing things outside your comfort zone also allows you to grow.
Eleanor lived through both World Wars and understood that there are no winners of any wars!
I never thought of this before (D)anger…
Eggzactly! And not only that – listen to good advice as well! It’s for free!
Like not voting for instance!
So true you smart woman! When I grow up I want to be exactly like you!!
