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:

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.
