Quote of the Day (Eleanor Roosevelt, on How ‘We Shape Ourselves’)

“One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In stopping to think through the meaning of what I have learned, there is much that I believe intensely, much I am unsure of. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”—Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life (1960)
