A woman is like a teabag
"A woman is like a teabag, only in hot water do you realize how strong she is."

        Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote is sometimes attributed to Nancy Reagan. Ah, but young Anne Francis Robbins, a.k.a. Nancy Davis, was an aspiring Hollywood starlet at the time U.N. delegate Eleanor Roosevelt was helping to draft the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948). The quote has also been attribuyted to Adelle Davis and Ivana Trump.

Thanks to Carol Tadeusik for bringing attention to the previous mis-attribution.
