Inspirational quotes for women

 10 quotes from strong Career Women that we need in our life:

 

#1 – Marsha Evans on hard work

“You can have unbelievable intelligence, you can have connections, you can have opportunities fall out of the sky. But in the end, hard work is the true, enduring characteristic of successful people.”

 

#2 – Hilary Clinton on criticism

”Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you. ”

 

#3 – Sheryl Sandberg on life partners

”When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier!”

 

#4 – Olivia Wilde on health

”Take care of yourself now that you’re old enough to know how. Drink water, sleep eight hours (I wish), and don’t go within 400 feet of a tanning booth or I’ll slap you. Hard.”

 

#5 – Mae Jemison on limitation

”Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.”

 

#6 – Michelle Obama on negative the people in your life

”Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with.”

 

#7 – Sheila Murray Bethel on courage

“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.”

 

#8 – Helen Keller on happiness

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”

 

#9 – Kathleen Hanna on finding your career path

”Sit down and ask yourself, ‘What is the most important thing to me?’ What grosses me out the most? What makes me the most upset — is it healthcare? Is it so many people being hungry in our culture? Is it sexual abuse?  Mix that with doing something you love, something you could keep doing forever and ever. For me, it was ending violence against women, and I mixed it with music. And I’ve had a 25-year career. So that’s my advice: Find something you really care about and mix that with something you love doing.”

 

#10 – Mary Kay Ash on achieving

”Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.”
