The MOST SPLENDID Quotes on WOMEN

What better way to start the WOMEN’S DAY Special Series than sharing a few SPLENDID Quotes on WOMEN… In this blog, I am listing my personal favorites. Some touched me, some amused me, some got me thinking and some just got etched deep in my memory….

“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
By Brigham Young

“There are women who make things better… simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who through strength and courage make it through. There are women who change the world everyday… Women like you.”
By Ashley Rice

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
By Coco Chanel

“In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”
By Margaret Thatcher

“A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.”
By D.H. Lawrence

“A witty woman is a treasure; a witty beauty is a power.”
By George Meredith

“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
By Yves Saint-Laurent

“One is not born a woman, one becomes one”
By Simone de Beauvoir

“My gran had always told me that a woman–any woman worth her salt–could do whatever she had to.”
By Charlaine Harris

“Every word a woman writes changes the story of the world, revises the official version.”
By Carolyn See

“The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world.”
By Edgar Allan Poe

“Nothing on this planet can compare with a woman’s love—it is kind and compassionate, patient and nurturing, generous and sweet and unconditional. Pure. If you are her man, she will walk on water and through a mountain for you, too, no matter how you’ve acted out, no matter what crazy thing you’ve done, no matter the time or demand. If you are her man, she will talk to you until there just aren’t any more words left to say, encourage you when you’re at rock bottom and think there just isn’t any way out, hold you in her arms when you’re sick, and laugh with you when you’re up. And if you’re her man and that woman loves you—I mean really loves you?—she will shine you up when you’re dusty, encourage you when you’re down, defend you even when she’s not so sure you were right, and hang on your every word, even when you’re not saying anything worth listening to. And no matter what you do, no matter how many times her friends say you’re no good, no matter how many times you slam the door on the relationship, she will give you her very best and then some, and keep right on trying to win over your heart, even when you act like everything she’s done to convince you she’s The One just isn’t good enough.
That’s a woman’s love—it stands the test of time, logic, and all circumstance…. Well, I’m here to tell you that expecting that kind of love— that perfection—from a man is unrealistic. That’s right, I said it—it’s not gonna happen, no way, no how. Because a man’s love isn’t like a woman’s love.”

By Steve Harvey

  1. The series of blogposts as a runup for Women’s Day is really well conceived Nischala. I could not stop squirming at the Margaret Thatcher’s quote among these :)

  2. Like this and thinking about asking a question about favourite quotes on women in my #globahub conversation later today. My favourite quote is Chanel… love her!
