Most websites attribute the quote to Eleanor Roosevelt, but Brainy Quotes says it is Sam Levenson

I think that Sam might have re-quoted her, or someone mistakenly attributed it to him on Brainy quotes, all other pages attribute the quote to Eleanor.

I submitted a correction, through their submission system (they don't have a correction form).

Thanks Janill.

It's amazing how hard it is to find correct attribution, but I appreciate your setting the record straight.
