Riding home on the 1 train tonight ...

I noticed that a guy next to me had scrawled a quotation by Eleanor Roosevelt on a piece of paper and taped it to the inside cover of his PDA case. It read:
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
I came home and looked it up. Apparently, the former first lady said it late in life as a "warning to wives of future presidents." I wondered, Why did this quote have significance to him and why did he decide to keep it so close at hand?
