It takes one woman to build another woman up and it takes a village to raise them. I’ve compiled some quotes of women inspiring women to enlighten our lives. Often women are known to compete with each other instead of working together to build a community. These quotes and the women who are behind the quotes remind us to unite and not fall apart.
“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.” – Hillary Cliton. We as women have so much talent that is not being recognized in may cases. So much insight and knowledge that is often suppressed by overpowering men in the higher levels is what women have.
“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” – Oprah Winfrey. You have to be okay with failure because how can one expect to succeed if you don’t know what failure is? One has to fall down in order to pick yourself back up to say, “oh, that was the bottom.” Think like a queen and you’ll find yourself in places unimaginable.
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa. One of my favorites quotes of all time. It’s not always about the big and great things that people do. Yes, of course it’s awesome to see the greatest accomplishments of someone, but sometimes, the small things make a great impact. Not everything may be visible to the world, but the ones that do small things with great love are often the happiest people in the world.
“You must do the things you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt. This quote hits home because there are so may things I hold back on because I feel like I can’t. I’m so busy telling my kids to not fear and to challenge themselves to accomplish even the things they dont’ think they can. But then I’m left with myself not taking my own advice. Get yourself out of the comfort zone and take on the obstacle that seem difficult. You’ll never know unless you try.
“Each person is born with very individual qualities and potential. We as a society owe it to women to create a truly supportive environment in which they too can grow and move forward.” -Princess Diana. Such an inspiration to all women across the world. Women definitely need s supportive environment where we can all grow and move forward TOGETHER. Everyone is born with a potential to make a difference so why not be able to pursue what you’re capable of.
”I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life. -Maya Angelou. Forever grateful to be a woman because I’m not sure what kind of a life I would have led if I was a man. Many things have been accomplished so much more with what I have, as a woman.
”If you wan something said, ask a man; If you want something done, ask a woman.” – Margaret Thatcher. We women are the “doers” in life. Instead of just talon an issue, we want something done about it. Why ask when we like things to be done. Accomplishments come only through what you accomplish, not what you talk about.
Ruth Badger Ginsburg
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It should be that women are the exception.” – Ruth Badger Ginsburg. So many important decisions could have been made differently if a woman was in charge. Things would be thought out so much more thoroughly and in more details.
”Women have discovered that they cannot rely on men’s chivalry to give them justice.” – Helen Keller. Waiting or relying on a man’s decision isn’t always the case anymore. More and more women are in higher positions where they can partake in more decision making situations.
There are may other women who have made a huge impact in the society. Quotes of women inspiring women are only a few of the ones that have made a huge impact on me. These affirmations and words of strength help us realize how powerful women can be as we build an empire together.
