Saying Images shares inspiring strong women quotes, and quotations about strong women to empower them in life, love & work.
There are two kinds of strong women in our lives — the kind the whole world sees and the kind who are strong beneath the surface. For the first, we have amazing and dynamic women achievers who are at the top of their game despite obstacles along the way. These are the enterpreneurs, astronauts, scientists, and so on.
For the latter, we have women whom we might take for granted, but whose quiet strength becomes apparent upon closer inspection. It might be your grandmother or mother. It might be your kindergarten or highschool teacher or your hospital nurse.
Whichever you belong to, stay strong because life doesn’t get easier. We just become stronger.
