A Quote by Anna Eleanor Roosevelt on charity, circumstances, deals, good, learning, life, love, maturity, needs, people, and world

A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally,who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.
