Great Words from Great Women
by Kevin Roberts
A recent post on happiness included some words from great men. Here are ten women with some wisdom on purpose, courage, and justice:
Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Helen Keller: “Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
Janis Joplin: “Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”
Mother Jones: “My address is like my shoes. It travels with me. I abide where there is a fight against wrong.”
Sappho: “Although they are only breath, words which I command are immortal.”
Jane Austen: “History…tells me nothing that does not either vex or weary me. The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars and pestilences in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all – it is very tiresome.”
Barbra Streisand: “I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators – they fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What’s to be ashamed of?”
Margaret Thatcher: “If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”
Estée Lauder: “Telephone, Telegraph, Tell-A-Woman.”
