Most of us have trouble juggling. The woman who says she doesn’t
is someone whom I admire but have never met.
Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only
this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand—and melting like a snowflake.

Remember, all the answers you need are inside of you;
you only have to become quiet enough to hear them.
A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman.
But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.
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.
If you are committed to creating value and if you aren’t afraid of hard times, obstacles
become utterly unimportant. A nuisance perhaps—but with no real power.
The world respects creation; people will get out of your way.
Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do.
Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.
A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want.
What if you began to expect the best from any situation? Isn’t it possible that you could write new chapters in your life with happy endings? Suspend your disbelief?

I don’t think of myself as a poor, deprived ghetto girl who made good.
I think of myself as somebody who from an early age knew
I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good.
Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.
— Janis Joplin
Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee
doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.

What the economy requires now is a whole different set of skills: You need intelligence, you need an ability to sit still and focus, to communicate openly, to be able to listen to people and to operate in a workplace that is much more fluid than it used to be.
These are things that women do extremely well.
There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness.
In all realms of life it takes courage to stretch your limits,
express your power, and fulfill your potential.
There is time for work, and time for love. That leaves no other time.
I have never worked a day in my life without selling.
If I believe in something, I sell it, and I sell it hard.
Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction.
Break the habit. Talk about your joys.
Never be ashamed! There’s some who will hold it against you,
but they are not worth bothering with.
—J. K. Rowling
Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.
Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time.
Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
