Wednesday Wall2Wall ☆ Chalkboard Quote ☆ Eleanor Roosevelt

August 12, 2014

Chalkboard Eleanor Roosevelt-4

Eleanor Roosevelt was the First Lady and politician who devoted her life to fight for the human rights. I have a lot of respect for her and her way of living. She left many words of wisdom that have inspired many people in the world. This is only one example. It was encouraging to see her words on my chalkboard which I see a number of times throughout the day.

The original of this print which I copied from was found on Poppytalk. Click here to see the original graphic design which is also saved in my Graphics & Typography Pinterest Board.

This quote reminds me of Martin Luther King, Jr’s speech “I have a dream”. In fact, Eleanor Roosevelt was an ardent supporter of him. I would be happy if I can have even a little bit of their courage to attain my dream.

エラノール・ルーズベルトはファーストレディーとしてまた政治家として、人権擁護活動に貢献しました。彼女の生き方をとても尊敬します。エラノールさんは、感銘を受ける数々の名言を残されました。こちらはほんの一例です。毎日何回も見る自宅のこの黒板で、彼女の言葉を見ては励まされました。

このグラフィックデザインは、Poppytalkというサイトで見つけました。私が真似した原本はこちらをクリックすると見れます。また、私のピンタレストのGraphics & Typographyというボードにも保存されています。

「自分の夢が持つ美(素晴らしさ)を信じる者には、未来は開ける。」というエラノールさんの言葉は、マーティン・ルーサー・キング・ジュニアの「私には夢がある」という演説を思い起こさせます。実際、エラノールさんは、マーティン・ルーサー・キング・ジュニアの熱心な支持者であったそうです。彼らの持っていた勇気の少しでも良いので持って自分の夢に向かって励めたら、と思います。

Do you have a dream? Having a dream gives you hope for the future, doesn’t it?

夢はありますか?夢を持つことは、未来への希望を与えてくれますね。
