John Barlett's "Familiar Quotations" says Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) said "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." in "This Is My Story" .
But I have this nagging feeling I just read this quote within the last few days and don't remember it attributed to Ms. Roosevelt. But if Barlett's says it, it must be right.
