In the spirit of women empowerment, here are powerful quotes from some of the most brilliant women in film, music, politics, and business. Their goal is to encourage fellow women. If they made it, other women aspiring to succeed can also make it.
As you read the quotes, may your spirit awaken to new possibilities. May you believe in your abilities to grow and conquer anything you set your mind to achieve. May you become the woman you were designed to be.
The great revolutionists!
There is a reason quotes are loved. They are like thoroughly sharpened blades that cut through bone; teaching, provoking, reminding, reprimanding, and inspiring. They are the capsules whose dosage is a lifetime one if we are to cure shallow-mindedness and weary spirits when it comes to embracing possibility.
