Quotable Women - Five favourites

My fondness for words - so very obvious here as I am sure you will agree dear reader - means I find myself collecting those I like, squirrelling them away for future reference, trying to remember them, to live by their wisdom, to be inspired and to just enjoy the sentiments.

  • "For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others." - Audrey Hepburn
  • "Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people." - Eleanor Roosevelt
  • "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
  • "Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." - Harriet Beecher Stowe
  • "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." - Maya Angelou
I would be delighted if you have a favourite quote you could share with me.

til later

  1. Great quotes(I use them often on my LOs) One of my favourites is 'I't's all part of God's plan...we're not supposed to understand it!',but I have no idea to whom it's attributed

  2. Gosh, I really like the one from Eleanor Roosevelt and the first from Maya Angelou ... I may have to 'borrow' them from here if you don't mind? :-)

  3. These are all lovely - and the Audrey one I had not come across before...

  4. I too had not heard the Audrey Hepburn quote - lovely lesson there.


Hi and welcome - thanks for taking the time to let me know you called.
