[Book Quote Tuesday] Do The Thing You Think You Cannot Do

"You Learn By Living" by Eleanor Roosevelt.

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

Welcome to March! Since it is Women’s Month, we will be sharing book quotes by female novelists.

I just celebrated my 44th birthday yesterday. I thought it would be good to share a quote that celebrates survival from horror, from pain, from fear – as eloquently phrased by Eleanor Roosevelt in her You Learn By Living (Amazon | Book Depository). I like how the quote also is a testament to reinvention, strength, and courage. You learn indeed by living and by doing exactly “the thing you think you cannot do.”

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
