Women Encouraging Women

“One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go.” — Sheila Murray Bethel

A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water. – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.” — Margaret Sanger

“Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it by use.” — Ruth Gordo

"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass." — Maya Angelou

"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent." — Madeleine Albrigh

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." — Eleanor Roosevelt

“How wrong is it for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself?” ― Anaïs Nin

"I always thought that people told you that you're beautiful--that this was a title that was bestowed upon you...I think that it's time to take this power into our own hands and to say, "You know what? I'm beautiful. I just am. And that's my light. I'm just a beautiful woman." — Margaret Cho

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” — Oprah Winfrey

“A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want." — Madonna

“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.” — Marissa Mayer (CEO of Yahoo)

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” — Mae West

  4. Thanks Angel for these lovely quotes. They are all so inspiring.

  5. I think it is so important for women to encourage other women! Great quotes. I've known many women that say they cannot be friends with other women rather than accept and celebrate differences. Many of the quotes touched me.
