If you want something said, ask a man,
if you want something done, ask a woman.
This is amazing
My mother is my inspiration she was a very strong and loving woman
Audrey Hepburn said "I beleive in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong." This has always motivated me to to rtry to rise above difficult times.
My mom and sister are inspirations to me
If I had to choose just one woman, It would be my grandmother. SHe was quite a woman.
I was always inspired by Katharine Hepburn and her Hollywood roles and her defiance to be female stereotyped.
My grandmother always gave words of wisdom like ladies should have personal stationary (for thank you cards and kind notes), get your education and always give back to your community. When she died we were suprised at how many showed up at her funeral she'd done kind thngs for each of them that no one ever knew she'd done, she'd ask that they never shared it or where it had come from, like when she bought computers for the school and library, bought life saving survial equipment for the fire dept.
Michele Obama / "Success is only meaningful and enjoyable if it feels like your own."
i love Maya Angelou quotes- for example "If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?"
Michelle Obama inspires me!
I've always admired Oprah. One of my favorite of her quotes is "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."
Love get this.need a good book get my mind off this virus
So many strong women inspired me and still do. My mom, sister, daughter, friends and many famous people. A favorite saying is I think from Oprah- Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
