Quote for 10/15/13

It's your life - but only if you make it so. The standards by which you live must be your own standards, your own values, your own convictions in regard to what is right and wrong, what is true and false, what is important and what is trivial. When you adopt the standards and the values of someone else or a community or a pressure group, you surrender your own integrity. You become, to the extent of your surrender, less of a human being.

As always, an Eleanore Roosevelt quote gives great advise. She would have made a very good president.

RE: Quote for 10/15/13

Eleanor was so ahead of her time, she was another political figure
to get a lot of flak, it did not deter her from being herself

RE: Quote for 10/15/13

Agreed with you Lilo. Thanks Jim for a great quote.

RE: Quote for 10/15/13
