10 Quotes of Encouragement For Women

on March 9, 2013

Women specific quotes may be hard to find, so that is why I decided to put together some quotes that I thought would be great for women:

1.  The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. Anna Quindlen.

2.  You move totally away from reality when you believe that there is a legitimate reason to suffer. – Byron Katie.

3.  The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. – Alice Walker.

4.  “A careless word may kindle strife;

A cruel word may wreack a life.

A bitter word may hate instill;

A brutal word may smite and kill.

A gracious word may smooth the way

A joyous word may light the day.

A timely word may lessen stress.

A loving word may heal and bless.

-Author Unkown
