Franklin Delano Roosevelt Once Said… The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born on January 30, 1882 and died on April 12, 1945. Franklin was an American politician who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 – 1945. While he was one of the infamous presidents, his wife Eleanor became First Lady of the World.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself… nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

FDR’s most famous quote from his first inaugural speech on March 4, 1933 during the great depression and it was part of his responsibility to try to uplift our nation and figure a way of helping the masses of unemployed and in need. He must have done something right to be re-elected for four terms in office. Roosevelt was considered a hero to African Americans, Jews and Catholics and one of the greatest Presidents we’ve had for our nation.

Art is not a treasure in the past or an importation from another land, but part of the present life of all living and creating peoples. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Art is very important in life because while it is dated it is also timeless and the more we appreciate and learn about art we help expand our creativity out to new generations. I’ve always appreciated art and been art minded from my photographs, to my writing and drawings and paintings, not to mention interior design and always striving to learn something new.

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

We have all felt that we’ve been pushed to our limits and as we grow older we get to see this multiple times in our life but the trick is that we learn to tie the knot so we can help ourselves through the rough patches. That’s never something that comes naturally or easily in ones life but I do believe that is part of the learning curve is having these obstacles and teaching ourselves how to incorporate that into our lives and continue to live.
