Our inspirational quotes for women are encouraging, funny, and fresh--hand chosen from books so you won't have seen them anywhere else on the 'Net!

It was never meant to be a war between men and women, but sometimes that's what it turns into. Men, who have controlled power for way too long, don't want to give it up.

The strength of women lies in endurance and patience. Women quietly keep working away, overcoming obstacles, learning, growing, until they reach their goal. But even today, many males are threatened by strong women.

Not me! I find intelligence, strength, and self-confidence in women attractive. I was a feminist back in the 70s, when it was still unpopular.

And so when I picked the quotes for women you see on this page, I looked for the spunky, the snarky, and the strong. And to be fair, I interspersed them with a few quotes by men too. But not too many.

So enjoy. Laugh. Think. Even snort if you like. This site's about strength, both male and female, as well as compassion. Sounds like a winning combination to me!

Looking back I see that times of loneliness and brokenness have cut a pathway in my life leading to a closer, more intimate friendship with Jesus. Today I'm grateful for those still, silent moments of isolation, because without them I would not know the comfort and personal connection I now have with God.
Mary Fairchild, from Revel in the Rubble

If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool.
