Eleanor Roosevelt's last book
- On my desk is the book Tomorrow Is Now written by Eleanor Roosevelt
in 1962, the year she died at the age of 78 because of her ill
health. It always touches me when I read her writing with all her
wisdom and love for the country. Get this book if you can. It's all
worth the few bucks.
"Once more we are in a period of uncertainty, of danger, in which
not only our own safety but that of all mankind is threatened. Once
more we need the qualities that inspired the development of the
democratic way of life. We need imagination and integrity, courage
and a high heart. We need to fan the spark of conviction, which may
again inspire the world as we did with our new idea of the dignity
and worth of free men. But first we must learn to cast out fear.
People who 'view with alarm' never build anything." - Eleanor
Roosevelt, Tomorrow Is Now
