Working in the lingerie industry, we can’t help but admire and respect women who strive to make the world a better place for all of us. As part of a feminine-based industry, inspirational women mean a lot to us at Panache.
As legendary poet Maya Angelou sadly passed away this week, we took a few moments to look back and reflect on some of our favourite inspirational quotes from women who have made a difference…
Maya Angelou: “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better”
Eleanor Roosevelt: “A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water”
Marilyn Monroe: “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition”
JK Rowling: “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all- in which case, you fail by default”
Madeleine Albright: “There is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women”
Emmeline Pankhurst: “We have to free half the human race, the women, so that they can help to free the other half”
Princess Diana: “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you”
Oprah Winfrey: “I was once afraid of people saying “who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say “this is who I am”
Anne Frank: “Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy”
