Thought for the Day
“Life was meant to be lived,
and curiosity must be kept alive.
One must never, for whatever reason,
turn his back on life.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945. She supported the New Deal policies of her husband, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and became an advocate for civil rights. After her husband’s death in 1945, Roosevelt continued to be an internationally prominent author, speaker, politician, and activist for the New Deal coalition. She worked to enhance the status of working women, although she opposed the Equal Rights Amendment because she believed it would adversely affect women.
