15 30 / 150You can gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along You must do the thing you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt Public Speaking Success!
