Quotes from the ultimate fun fearless female

Some quotes from Helen Gurley Brown

Why quote her? well, you may or may not like all her values, but she got balls for sure, more balls than most men i meet, so, salute.

I like dreams, dreams are important component of my life, without my dreams, i would never be here

T.E Lawrence,

Responsibility, time and again i need reminders, that i am responsible for my life, and that i need to take Action in my life

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”

Albert Ellis,

Story of my life

“The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.”

Hamilton Wright Mabie
