Today is IWD and as my tribute to women everywhere I’ve put together some quotes from some of the most famous women in the world, and some unknowns. Enjoy, and be inspired!
Audrey Hepburn – For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Coco Chanel – Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
Whoopi Goldberg – Normal is in the eye of the beholder.
Eleanor Roosevelt - Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
Marilyn Monroe – I want to grow old without facelifts… I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I’ve made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you’d never complete your life, would you? You’d never wholly know you.
Mother Teresa – Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Oprah Winfrey – Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
Dianne Feinstein, politician – [on women's role in government] Toughness doesn’t have to come in a pinstripe suit.
Mother Teresa – It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
Coco Chanel – A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.
Miss Piggy – Never eat more than you can lift.
Katherine Hepburn – If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun!
Gilda Radner – I base most of my fashion sense on what doesn’t itch!
Charlotte Whitton – Whatever women do, they must do it twice as well as men to be “half as good”. Luckily, this is not difficult.
Author Unknown – The Three Wise Women
Three wise women would have…
Arrived on time,
Helped deliver the baby,
Cleaned the stable,
Made a casserole,
Brought practical gifts,
And there would be peace on Earth.
