[famous actress, director, and fashion designer]
“There are a lot of people in life who want to tear you down or get you involved in their drama. That’s a big life lesson that is hard to learn when you’re young, but as I get older, I see women weeding people out of their lives. This is healthy. You don’t need to be a good friend to someone who’s not a good friend to you. You don’t even need to be a good daughter or sister or wife to somebody who’s not good to you. It goes that far.”
[actress, comedian, and author of best-selling books]
“People talk about confidence without ever bringing up hard work. That’s a mistake. I know I sound like some dour older spinster chambermaid on Downton Abbey who has never felt a man’s touch and whose heart has turned to stone, but I don’t understand how you could have self-confidence if you don’t do the work… Confidence is like respect: you have to earn it.”
[singer, musician, artist, feminist activist]
“Sit down and ask yourself, What is the most important thing to me? What grosses me out the most? What makes me the most upset — is it healthcare? Is it so many people being hungry in our culture? Is it sexual abuse? Mix that with doing something you love, something you could keep doing forever and ever. For me, it was ending violence against women, and I mixed it with music. And I’ve had a 25-year career. So that’s my advice: Find something you really care about and mix that with something you love doing.”
[singer, actress, director, songwriter, and dancer]
“It’s not about perfection. It’s about purpose. We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health—take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself.”
[American essayist, short story writer, biographer, novelist, and memoirist, author of the best-selling Eat, Pray, Love]
“It’s a rare and amazing thing to be a human being who has any kind of agency over their lives at all, and I just can’t give a shit where people put me in the filing cabinet of their own imagination… But it’s a question of, look, the clock is ticking, we have to limit where we put our energies and resources, and I’m not going to put them into caring what other people think of me.”
[American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, and producer]
“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.”
[British novelist and screenwriter]
“There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”
[poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist]
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
We are all different and draw our strength from different sources, however, hard working woman quotes are one of the richest goldmines women ever created to stay strong, positive, and keep doing against all the odds.
