My four quotes for this assignment are the following:

  1. “The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you are very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.” – Serena Williams

This quote inspires me to be confident and encourages me to strive for success on whatever it is I’m working on. I also agree with how she said we have to raise one another and are generous to one another as well. Being selfish and cruel has never benefited anyone therefore why not help and inspire others.

2. “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” – Ruth Bader GInsburg

This quote both moves and inspires me with how I feel over a certain issue or two. There is a certain way in which a leader can move people whether it be with their own words or actions it all matters. The impact should result in others willing to join and fight for it as well. When it comes to issues in which we care for deeply it does matter and make a difference.

3. “Normal is not something to aspire to, it’s something to get away from.” – Jodie Foster

This quote moves me because rather than sticking to a certain idea it encourages you to go at it a certain way. When it comes to being normal what exactly is it? Why should anybody do it when it makes them uncomfortable or does not work well with them? People ought to say and act as the please regardless if it is considered normal or not.

4.“If you don’t get out of the box you’ve been raised in, you won’t understand how much bigger the world is.” – Angelina Jolie

This quote moves me because it talks about boundaries and how by no stepping outside of them can affect you. It may be scary at a first glance, to take a risk or two but it may be better than the alternative. Rather than stay put for the rest of your life it could benefit you leave and take the leap; who knows what awaits you on the other side.
