Gaining Strength from Women

Posted by KB Gibson on March 4, 2017 in Write Time Blog |

March has arrived once again, and not only do we celebrate spring, but we have the honor and responsibility of celebrating women through National Women’s History Month. I want to connect with others—men and women—in the contributions women are making to the past, present, and future.

Each year, I look for new ways to recognize intelligent and courageous women. Why not do it this year with quotes? I enjoy motivating quotes. I collect them, post them, and share them. Good quotes inspire me to pay attention to what matters and to become a better person.

So here are a month of quotes to share–
