Day 80, March 21

March is Women's History Month. The theme for this year is "Our History is Our Strength." Several days ago, I wrote about two remarkable women who impressed me with their strength, their commitment to their beliefs, their courage in the face of adversity.

With that in mind, I'd like to share with you some quotes by renowned women over the years. (A dear friend shared these with me, and they deserve a wider audience.)

How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.--Anne Frank

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.--Harriet Tubman

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.--Maya Angelou

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.--Eleanor Roosevelt

Finding her own strength, her own talents, her own faith will always remain a woman's challenge. Women like those quoted above stand as an inspiration for me.

So, for today, I am grateful for the grace and power of women everywhere.


  1. "Oh crud. I'm behind on the laundry. Again."--Deliese Kubie

  2. Although I thought they were all inspiring, my favorite was Maya Angelou's. Thanks for sharing the quotes.

  3. Great quotes. I liked Delises' as well.
