Quotable Quotes

by Kelly Young

Earlier this week I was working on a presentation and wanted to include an inspirational quote, so naturally I went online and googled “inspirational quotes about women.” I could’ve spent a full day just clicking through the various sites: inspirational quotes about women to motivational quotes for women (and everything in between).

So many of the quotes were worth sharing, but I decided to share some of my favorites below.

  • "I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels."
    - Maya Angelou

  • “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.”
    - Helen Keller

  • “We don’t have to do big things only small things with great love.”
    - Sister Teresa

  • “The fastest way to change society is to mobilize the women of the world.”
    - Charles Malik

  • “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."
    - Timothy Leary

  • “The most effective way to do it, is to do it.”
    - Amelia Earhart

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

  • “The history of all times, and of today especially, teaches that ... women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves.”
    - Louise Otto

  • “Well-behaved women seldom make history.”
    - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

  • “How important it is to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes.”
    - Maya Angelou

    And, of course:
  • “Behind every strong woman are more strong women.”
    - Women’s Fund of Central Indiana

I’d love to add to my list of favorite quotes, so please share yours here.
