I love inspirational quotes! Yesterday I was looking to find some beautiful and inspiring quotes about women. As I searched this is what I found:
Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
They call it PMS because Mad Cow Disease was already taken. ~Author Unknown
Women dress alike all over the world: they dress to be annoying to other women. ~Elsa Schiaparelli
There are women who do not like to cause suffering to many men at a time, and who prefer to concentrate on one man: These are the faithful women. ~Alfred Capus
Wow! Is that really the reputation that we want to have as women?? I know that is certainly not the kind of legacy that I want to leave behind. As women, we do not need to be “wallflowers” to act with grace and dignity. By nature, women are created to be nurturers of life yet when we nag, gossip and compete with one another, we are not cultivating a positive life, we are in fact tearing down the life in others.
So I looked for a better quote about the nurturing beauty of women’s hearts. This is what I found:
“A woman of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.”
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
Worth far more than rubies! Just wait… it gets better!
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised
That sounds so much better to me!
