Strong Women - Eleanor Roosevelt


Quote:
A woman is like a tea bag...
you don't know how strong she is
until you put her in hot water.

The August Break
More than one word, but simple for a strong lady.

She was a great lady. When I was young(er), we lived in the Eugene area and she spoke in Eugene. We didn't go but I remember that evening Dad took us somewhere and we drove by the hotel where she was speaking. Big signs outside announced the event and I still remember how sad I felt that I couldn't go inside and hear her.

A very strong woman.
I have spent many a summer in Newport Oregon with my Father, many years ago.
