Throughout history there have been many influential women who have brought great change to the world. A couple of my favourites (in no particular order) are Cleopatra, Mother Teresa, Emily Murphy, Emily Carr and Malala Yousafzai. These are just some of the women who have made a positive impact on my life. I enjoy reading about all that they went through and are going through. Each woman has so much that we can learn from.
Here are a few of my favourite quotes:
I will not be triumphed over. ~ Cleopatra
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do. ~ Mother Teresa
Nothing ever happens by chance, Everything is pushed from behind. ~ Emily Murphy
There is something bigger than fact: the underlying spirit, all it stands for, the mood, the vastness, the wildness. ~Emily Carr
Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world. ~ Malala Yousafzai
As I go through my day to day life, I often think about all the influential people surrounding me. I definitely think there is a bit of each person that I carry along with me everywhere I go. I hope you enjoyed my favourite quotes, Happy Feminist Friday!
