Double Wise Words: Womanhood

The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.

There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.

There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.

We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.

We have enough greed; we need more goodness.

We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.

We have enough popularity; we need more purity.

-Margaret D. Nadauld

I love quotes like these when I feel emotional or inadequate in some way because I’m not “tough”. What does being a woman mean to you?

Wise Words: True Change

Change happens when you understand what you want to change so deeply that there is no reason to do anything but act in your own best interest.

-Geneen Roth, Women, Food, and God

Wise Words: Paint your Reality

I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to,

and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.

Wise Words: The Illusion of Security

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

Helen Keller

Wise Words: How to be Original

Source

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original:

whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before)

you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

C.S Lewis

Wise Words: Believe in Magic

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you

because the greatest secrets are always hidden

in the most unlikely places.

Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

-Roald Dahl

Wise Words: Believe in Yourself

Source

If just one person believes in you

Deep enough and strong enough

Believes on you hard enough and long enough

Before you knew it, someone else would think

“If he can do it, I can do it”

Making it two. Two whole people who believe

in you.

And maybe even you can believe in you too.

-The Muppets
