Honour our Power month with these quotes from inspirational celebrities.
At times when you feel like giving up, you may cry to your mom or peer and feel better after they comfort you with their words of wisdom or advice. Most of the time, these words stick with us and we go back to them when we go through another hardship or struggle. Like the women that complete our lives, celebrities can inspire us because they, too, are regular people who go through life as we do. In celebrating Power month at GlamAsia, here are eight inspiring quotes from female celebrities who are proud to be a woman.
“I believe I’ve always been a big believer in equality. No one has ever been able to tell me I couldn’t do something because I was a girl.” — Anne Hathaway
“Figure out who you are separate from your family, and the man or woman you’re in a relationship with. Find who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone. I think that’s the most important thing in life. Find a sense of self because with that, you can do anything else.” — Angelina Jolie
“I don’t want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself.” — Emma Watson
“Don’t blame your parents, don’t blame your boyfriend, don’t blame the weather. Accept the reality, embrace the challenge, and deal with it. Be in charge of your own life. Turn negatives into positives and be proud to be a woman.” — Diane von Furstenberg
“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life.” — Hillary Clinton
“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” — Nora Ephron
“A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection. She values and uses all of her gifts.” — Nancy Rathburn
“Power’s not given to you. You have to take it.” — Beyonce
