Motivation quotes from successful women.

Being a woman can be tough, whether you’re a stay at home mum, a businesswoman, a carer, an agony aunt, a sister, or a mixture of all of these things, you’re doing great. It seems only fair on International Women’s day to share with you my ‘go to’ quotes for when I need that little bit of motivation, brought to you by successful, inspirational women.

“Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live” – Anne Sweeney (President of Walt Disney)

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us” – Helen Keller (Author and Political Activist) 

“Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” – Sara Blakely (Founder of Spanx)

“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn (Actress)

“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”  – J.K Rowling (Author)

“I learned to always take on things I’d never done before. Growth and comfort do not coexist.” – Virginia Rometty (CEO of IBM)

Happy International Women’s Day! 

About Author

Well hello!

I'm Emma, a graduate and mother who designs and creates affordable cards and gifts in her spare time (rather than baking, sewing, reading stories or chucking out the dead plants that have taken over the conservatory).

I started Edge & Virtue in 2017 because I couldn't find the perfect cards and gifts to give to the people I put up with every day, any I did find were unjustifiably expensive or mass printed for everyone to buy in our one local card shop, so I created an etsy shop for people just like me who had a varying degree of hatred towards the people in their life and therefore needed gifts and cards to accurately reflect this.

I live in Essex (there are mostly idiots here the tv show doesn't lie), where my family and job take up most of my time so I'm currently operating out of my terraced house which doesn't allow dogs, in a street where my neighbour calls himself 'Lord of the Close' so if you sense some angry and bitter tones in my work, you are not wrong my friend.
