Eleanor Roosevelt

As a practice, I treat myself to reading 'one life' before I retire to bed, with my book, The Century's 100 Greatest Lives. If I'm not too sleepy, I get to read 2 lives. You would think all these people are bigger than life for having contributed immensely to shaping the lives we all live now - that they are overflowing with self-confidence and exude a commanding presence.

Reading the life of Eleanor Roosevelt, widow to the one of America's greatest presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was a revelation. She was mother to all of America, championing racial equality, women's rights and labor laws. But deep within this soul lies a constant struggle against insecurity and depression. This makes her achievement even more amazing - effecting all these social changes while struggling with hers. It's not bigger than life...just being all too human just like the rest of us.
