The Quotidian, November 1, 2010 ~ Want for Others

“We must want for others, not for ourselves alone.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 to November 7, 1962)

Eleanor Roosevelt was an American activist for civil rights and human rights, diplomat, speaker, and author. She was First Lady from 1933 to 1945 while her husband Franklin Delano Roosevelt was President of the United States. She was widely admired and internationally respected.

“As delegate to the United Nations, she chaired the committee that drafted and approved the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” [Wikipedia]
