Today the world is celebrating International Women’s Day. It is the day to appreciate women in our lives and also celebrate their achievements. From women in our family to colleagues at our workplace, all must be appreciated and loved. International Women’s Day is being observed since the early 1900s and it happens every year on a particular day, on March 8. You must inspire your mother, wife, sister, relative and friend by telling them how much they mean to you.
Filmmakers also make movies inspired by women power. Queen, English Vinglish, Chak De! India, Kahaani, Highway, Mardaani, Mary Kom, Neerja, NH 10, Dangal, Manikarnika are some of the names of recent Indian movies which did not need a hero to become a blockbuster hit.
So here are some inspirational quotes for the special day.
1. “I don’t like the word “sacrifice” or “compromise”. Anyone who is too into this sacrificing concept has very low self-esteem because they want to be martyrs at the drop of the hat. No! Stand up for yourself!”
– Sushmita Sen, Indian actress, Former Miss Universe
2. “I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
– Oprah Winfrey
3. “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.”
Mother Teresa
4. “Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.”
– Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
5. “Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”
– Clare Boothe Luce
6. “Don’t let anyone tell you you’re weak because you’re a woman.”
– Mary Kom, Indian Olympic boxer
7. Do something because you really want to do it. If you’re doing it just for the goal and don’t enjoy the path, then I think you’re cheating yourself.”
– Kalpana Chawla
8. “We realize the importance of our voice when we are silenced”
– Malala Yousafzai, Nobel peace prize winner
9. “No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.”
– Michelle Obama, Former First Lady of the United States
10. “Feminism is not about berating or hating men or disliking or trying to make sure we’re better than men, Feminism is just saying give me opportunities without judging me for the decisions that I make, the same freedom that men have enjoyed for so many centuries.”
– Priyanka Chopra
Happy Women’s Day 2019.
