Famous Women’s Quotes

“Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead
.
“We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost’s familiar poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road – the one “less traveled by” – offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.”
Rachel Carson
“We still live in a world in which a significant fraction of people, including women, believe that a woman belongs and wants to belong exclusively in the home.”
Rosalyn Sussman
(Nobel Prize-winning medical physicist)

    That Rosalyn Sussman quote really hit home. My whole life I never wanted kids, and I always wanted to work. Now that I’m closing in on 30, I’ve never wanted to be at home more. It’s so weird how your priorities can shift so quickly.
