Five Quotes

I finished reading the book, Pocket Positives - For Our Times. The last five quotes were so good I'm going to post all of them today.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the things you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884-1962, First Lady of the United States of America.
When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life or the life of another.  Helen Keller, 1880-1968, American Writer and Lecturer.
You know by the time you've reached my age you've made plenty of mistakes if you've lived your life properly. Ronald Reagan, b. 1911, President of the United States. 
I think these difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way and that so many things that one goes around worrying about are of not importance whatsoever. Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen), 1885-1962, Danish Writer. 
If there were nothing wrong in the world, there wouldn't be anything for us to do. George Bernard Shaw, 1856-1950, Irish Dramatist, Writer and Critic.
