INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, POWER OF PERSEVERANCE

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, POWER OF PERSEVERANCE

On this International Women’s Day on 8th March, there is no way better than celebrating it with the light that shines on us through the wise words of the female force that changed the course of history with their sheer talent, skill, will, and wisdom.

While the roots in the history of the International Women’s Day take us back to the early 1800s stirring the memories of the aggravating movements for women rights, a lot has been achieved on that front since then and a lot is yet to be done. This day belongs to all of us; the fight for gender equality shall stand fiercely on its war front till parity has been achieved to its full capacity and the below mentioned women of history will keep motivating us with their wise words.

To celebrate the political, economic, social, and cultural achievements of women, The CEO Magazine brings you a list compiled with quotes that inspire us with the thoughts of change-making, sturdy women;

“When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.”– Helen Keller

“Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.”– Margaret Thatcher

 “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”– Maya Angelou

“Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. You can fill your life up with ideas and still go home lonely. All you really have that really matters are feelings. That’s what music is to me.”– Janis Joplin

 “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.”– Mother Teresa

“Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.”– J. K. Rowling

“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

“The day will come when men will recognize woman as his peer, not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be the perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race.”– Susan B. Anthony

“We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever.”– Susan B. Anthony

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”– Oprah Winfrey

“A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection. She values and uses all of her gifts.”– Nancy Rathburn

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”– Diane Mariechild

 “Just watch, all of you men. I’ll show you what a woman can do…I’ll go across the country; I’ll race to the Moon… I’ll never look back.”– Edna Gardner Whyte

 “Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”– Clare Boothe Luce

“The way in which we think of ourselves has everything to do with how our world sees us and how we see ourselves successfully acknowledged by the world.”– Arlene Rankin

“If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.”– Oprah Winfrey

“Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.”– Charlotte Whitton

 “One likes people much better when they’re battered down by a prodigious siege of misfortune than when they triumph.”– Virginia Woolf

 “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.”– Helen Keller

 “Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you.”– Caroline Myss

 “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.”– Sheila Murray Bethel

“Woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.”– Margaret Sanger

“A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.” – Melinda Gates

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

“We still live in a world in which a significant fraction of people, including women, believe that a woman belongs and wants to belong exclusively in the home.”– Rosalyn Sussman
