I’ve seen many lists of motivational quotes – 10, 15, 20 wonderful, inspiring quotes – and upon reaching the end, observed there were no women represented. So, to provide a little balance, here are 12 motivating and inspiring quotes by women:
“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”
We may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated.
“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”
___ Elizabeth Gilbert
“When your belief in you and your dream
is greater than your belief in other people’s opinions,
you will have mastered your life.”
__ Johnna Parr
“The impossible may take a little while.”
“Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says,
I’ll try again tomorrow.”
__Mary Anne Radmacher
Don’t let yourself forget that God’s grace rewards not only those who never slip, but also those who bend and fall. So sing! The song of rejoicing softens hard hearts. It makes tears of godly sorrow flow from them. Singing summons the Holy Spirit. Happy praises offered in simplicity and love lead the faithful to complete harmony, without discord. Don’t stop singing.
__Hildegard of Bingen
Understand that the right to choose
your path is a sacred privilege.
Dwell in possibility.
