This was one smart lady. And from everything I've read, she did practice what she preached! 


"When you give joy to other people, you get more joy in return.  You should give a good thought to happiness that you can give out."

Eleanor Roosevelt

Hello Marte - Eleanor Roosevelt had many memorable quotes.   But it's this one attributed to her that tells me, she had a good sense of  humor:

"I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered.   But I was not pleased to read the description  in their catalogue:  not good in a bed but fine against a wall."

Thanks Michael Jacobs - that one made me laugh out loud. And yes, I'd say she had a fine sense of humor.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX I think I'd heard that one before, but it was a long time ago, so reading it today was as if it was new.

🤓 Eleanor Roosevelt was more than the First Lady, Marte. She was a class act 🤓

Hi Marte,
Your post reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:
"Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief." 

Like others, I got a chuckle out of Michael Jacob's comment.

I gave out some joy yesterday. I'll work on another round or two today.

Carol Williams That's a good quote - and oh so true. That sounds like a perfect plan to have a good day. I wish you success!
