Friday Philosophy…Quotes by Women

Why quotes by women? Honestly, it was an arbitrary choice. I didn’t have a topic word, so I just picked a group at random. 🙂

“To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves–there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.” ~ Joan Didion

“Anyone who has a continuous smile on his face conceals a toughness that is almost frightening.” ~ Greta Garbo

“We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.” ~ Katharine Hepburn

“Everything has to be earned, through work, persistence, and honesty.” ~ Grace Kelly

“Oh, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We’ve already got the stars.” ~ Bette Davis

“I am a feminist, and I define myself: Be yourself, because if you can get away with it, that is the ultimate feminist act.” ~ Liz Phair

Blessings to you all, and never give up!
