“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” ~Dolly Parton, singer-songwriter

“A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.” ~Melinda Gates, Gates Foundation



“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes — understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.” ~Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of Huffington Post

“Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.” ~Mary Kay Ash, founder Mary Kay Cosmetics
