Women’s History Month: 8 Quotes from Inspirational Women

How was your weekend?  We had both a relaxing and productive weekend. It flurried nearly all day Saturday but was a pretty day Sunday, so we were able to venture into the sunshine after hibernating from the cold.  Friday marked the beginning of March which is also Women’s History Month. To celebrate, I wanted to reflect on the strong, courageous and influential women in the past and present. We can learn so much from them including the sentiments these inspirational words convey:

I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.” 
– Eleanor Roosevelt

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
– Maya Angelou

“Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.”
– Mae Jemison

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving.”
– Katharine Hepburn

“We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.”
– Anne Frank

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” 
– Louisa May Alcott

“Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.” 
– Indira Gandhi

“There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.”

Hopefully these words help start your Monday off right.  Have a great week!
