I have great affection for both Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt, and I have a hunch that without Eleanor, Franklin's presidency would not have been nearly as inspiring.
I also have great affection for The Sun magazine, and I found in the October 2020 issue a quote from Eleanor, lodged on the very last page of the magazine, in its "Sunbeams" section. One more good reason to love Eleanor Roosevelt:
One thing I believe profoundly: We make our own history. The course of history is directed by the choices we make, and our choices grow out of the ideas, the beliefs, the values, the dreams of the people. It is not so much the powerful leaders that determine our destiny as the much more powerful influence of the combined voice of the people themselves.
