Women Quotes

As we are approaching Women’s day sharing a bunch of quotes for all my readers

“A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.”– Eleanor Roosevelt

“In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman. “— Margaret Thatcher

“I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind learning. “–Amy Poehler

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore. “— Lady Gaga

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim. “-Nora Ephron

“I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”Eleanor Roosevelt

“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier. “— Sheryl Sandberg

“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”
Clare Boothe Luce

“The most powerful force in a woman’s life is the need to be appreciated, loved and cherished for what she is.” ― Amish Tripathi

“People think at the end of the day that a man is the only answer [to fulfillment]. Actually a job is better for me.”Princess Diana

Right Time

Valentine’s day has passed just yesterday,love is in the air. Even when you browse on social networking sites like Facebook you find photos of your friends with their partners celebrating this day of love together.

This makes all single people out their feel even more lonely and they too wish that by next Valentine they also have someone to celebrate. Is Valentine’s day only for couples? Is it bad to be single passed the marriageable age?

Myself being single past 30 I do understand how it feels when people keep on questioning you about your marriage plans? When you see all your friends getting married? How lonely it feels on Valentine’s day and so on😕😕

Are these or any other reasons sufficient to get married as soon as possible. According to me a big ” No” 

For getting married you need to find a right partner who understands you, loves you and will always support you and only when you find such a person then is right time to get married. Till then love yourself, live life to full and be happily single.

Few months back I had seen an advertisement on TV which expresses similar thoughts sharing it below for all my readers

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
Mark Twain

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life—think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

Still I Rise

Sharing below a beautiful inspirational poem which gave me hope to continue in my difficult days……..

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

-Maya Angelou

डॉ. अब्दुल कलाम यांना पायलट बनायचे होते..
त्यासाठी कुणीही मार्गदर्शक नसल्यामुळे त्यांनी बी.एस्.सी. ला एडमीशन घेतली..

नंतर फायनल ईयरला त्यांना कळले की ,पायलट बनायचे असेल तर ईंजीनीयरींग मधील ‘एयरोनॉटीकल ईंजीनीयरींग’ ला प्रवेश घ्यावा लागतो !..
मार्गदर्शक नसल्यामुळे आयुष्यातील तीन वर्ष वाया घालवीले असे त्यांना वाटले !..खुप रडले!..

परंतु याच बीएससी फीजीक्सने त्यांचे जीवन घडविले !…

नंतर एयरोनाॅटीकल ईंजीनीयर ची पदवी घेतली ,त्यावर्षी संपुर्ण भारतातुन केवळ आठ मुलं ही पदवी घेऊ शकले !.. त्यात डॉ कलाम टॉपर होते !..

त्याकाळी फक्त ‘एअर ईंडीया’ हीच पायलटच्या जागा भरायची !..

त्यावर्षी त्यांना सात जागा भरायच्या होत्या!.अर्ज आठ !.. डॉ.ए.पी.जे. अब्दुल कलाम टॉपर !..

ईंटरव्यु होऊन सीलेक्शन झाले!.

डॉ. कलाम सोडुन सर्व उमेदवारांना नौकरी मीळाली!..
डॉ. कलाम यांची “ऊंची” कमी आहे,या निर्णयामुळे सीलेक्शन कमीटीने त्यांना नाकारले !..

डॉ. कलाम खुप हताश झाले !..

रामकृष्ण मठातच बालपण गेल्यामुळे उदास होऊन हरीद्वारच्या मठात गेले !..

तेथील स्वामीजींनी सांगीतले, ” का ऊदास होतोस?.. जीवनातील एका संग्रामात अपयशी ठरलास, याचा अर्थ नव्हे, की तु कर्तृत्ववान व यशस्वी पुरुष बनु शकत नाही !.. कदाचीत ईश्वराने तुझी निवड एखाद्या महान कार्यासाठी केली असेल !..

डॉ. कलाम घरी जाण्यासाठी दिल्लीला परत आले!..
दुस-या दिवशी पेपरमधे,”एयरोनाॅटीकल इंजीनियर पाहीजे” अशी जाहीरात होती, कुण्या विक्रम साराभाईंची !.. पगार एअर इंडीयाच्या दुप्पट !..

ईंटरव्यूहला पुन्हा तेच आठ कँडीडेट!..

एकच जागा !..

यावेळी मात्र कलाम यांचीच निवड झाली !..

दुस-या दिवशी नोकरीला गेले, म्हणाले, “सांगा विमान कुठे घेऊन जायचे?”..

विक्रम साराभाई म्हणाले, “आपल्या जवळ विमानच नाहीये ..आणि मला खात्री आहे की हे विमान तूच बनवू शकशील!”..

पुढचा इतिहास तुम्हाला माहीती आहे !..

तर मित्रांनो !.. तुम्ही आयुष्यात जरी अपेक्षित ध्ये़य मिळवू शकले नसाल, तर डॉ. ए.पी.जे.अब्दुल कलाम सर यांच्या जीवनातील हा प्रसंग विसरु नका !…

कदाचित तुम्ही भारताचे भावी कलाम सर असाल !..

“जीवनात अयशस्वी जरी झालोत
तरी निराश होऊ नये
कारण,
F.A.I.L. चा अर्थ
First Attempt In Learning
असाच आहे..!!

प्रयत्नांना कधीही
शेवट नसतो
कारण,
E.N.D. चा अर्थ
Efforts Never Die
असाच घेऊयात..!!

आयुष्यात कोणाकडूनही
नकार आला तरी
खचून जाऊ नये
कारण,
N.O. म्हणजे
Next Opportunity
म्हणून नेहमी आशावादी राहुयात
आणि
जीवनात पुढेच चालत राहुयात;
