Very likely Pat Nixon was right when she declared that being First Lady was "the hardest unpaid job in the world," but it is a position that has brought wisdom to the intrepid women willing to occupy it. "A woman is like a teabag; you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water," observed Eleanor Roosevelt. Many such quotations are collected here—on topics like education, activism, feminism, and the presidency—by such first ladies as Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Abigail Adams, Mamie Eisenhower, Michelle Obama, Betty Ford, "Lady Bird" Johnson, and Hillary Clinton.
