“It is better to be looked over than overlooked.”
Mae West

C. JoyBell C.
“I believe in strong women. I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn't need to hide behind her husband's back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don't play victim, you don't make yourself look pitiful, you don't point fingers. You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart.”
C. JoyBell C.

Jennifer Donnelly
“For mad I may be, but I will never be convenient.”
Jennifer Donnelly, Revolution

C. JoyBell C.
“I have met so many heartbroken men. It's a catastrophe. Women are easily overcome by the process that happens when a boy falls in love and becomes a man. Men's hearts are so often broken. Still, you have to leave your broken heart in a place where- when the woman who knows how to see what a gift is, sees it- your broken heart can be picked up again. I think that it takes a very strong woman (inner strength) to be able to handle a man falling in love with her, without morphing into a monster (the process is a very potent process, it can poison a woman, really). A woman thinks she wants a man to fall in love with her for all the perks that come with it; but when a real love really does happen, when a real man shows his manhood; it's often too powerful a thing to endure without being poisoned. Hence, all the heartbroken men. But, I do believe that there are strong women in the world today. A few. But there are. You could say, that the mark of a real woman, is a woman who can handle a man- a man falling in love with her. A woman who can recognize that, and keep it with her.”
C. JoyBell C.

“With the spread of conformity and image-driven superficiality, the allure of an individuated woman in full possession of herself and her powers will prove irresistible. We were born for plenitude and inner fulfillment.”
Elizabeth Prioleau, Seductress - Women Who Ravished the World and Their Lost Art of Love

Karen Hawkins
“I’ve often thought it unfair that women are expected to stay at home when there’s a fight to be won. If a
woman has the strength to bear a child, she can swing a sword as well as any man.”
Karen Hawkins, How to Abduct a Highland Lord

“I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.”
Louise Hay

Michael Cadnum
“No woman who had been intimate with a god was easily disturbed.”
Michael Cadnum

“A strong woman builds her own world. She is one who is wise enough to know that it will attract the man she will gladly share it with.”
Ellen J. Barrier, How to Trust God When All Other Resources Have Failed

Mae West
“A man in the house is worth two on the street.”
Mae West, Goodness Had Nothing To Do With It

Nancy Astor the Viscountess Astor

“Nancy Astor: "Sir, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea."
Winston Churchill: "Madame,i f you were my wife, I'd drink it!"
(Exchange with Winston Churchill)”
Nancy Astor the Viscountess Astor

Mary E. Pearson
“I walked up to Griz and poked him in the chest. "Let me make this perfectly clear to you. Though some might seek to make it appear otherwise, I am not a bride to be bartered away to another kingdom, not a prize of war, not a mouthpiece for your Komizar. I am not a chip in a card game to be mindlessly tossed into the center of the pot, nor one to be kept in the tight fist of a greedy opponent. I am a player seated at the table alongside everyone else, and from this day forward, I will play my own hand as I see fit. Do you understand me? Because the consequences could be ugly if someone thought otherwise.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Heart of Betrayal

Taylor Stevens
“Lumani had never managed a failed delivery because, in the end, no matter how skilled or how hard they fought back, pressure applied in the right places caused even the strongest men to fracture.
But this one? He'd watched her. Studied her. Observed what maybe even Uncle, the reader of people, had missed. This one was already fractured, and the lines between her broken pieces were not fissures but scar material stronger than whatever had once filled those spaces.”
Taylor Stevens, The Doll

Liliana Shelbrook
“You’re a lady. It’s written all over you, but the West doesn’t forgive any woman-unless she’s got a man.”
Liliana Shelbrook, Lantern in the Mist

Dennis Sharpe
“Standing in front of him I wipe his liquid from the corner of my mouth and stare deeply. I can see the panic in his eyes. I can smell his fear, deep, rich and growing, and for the first time tonight I’m actually aroused.”
Dennis Sharpe, Blood & Spirits

Nahoko Uehashi
“Balsa seemed invincible, endowed with powers no other warrior could match, but in her profile he could glimpse the shadow of a young girl, hurt and buffeted by a cruel and hopeless fate. If he had never experienced what it was like to be at the mercy of fate himself, he would not have noticed, but now he could see it with unbearable, heartrending clarity.”
Nahoko Uehashi, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

S.L. Jennings
“SUBJECT: Real original
Dear Dark Assholes,
I get the point. Showing me that you know how to log onto a computer and utilize Google must’ve taken some pretty keen strategizing on your part.
Really, really cool trick. Now leave me the hell alone.
-The DL”
S.L. Jennings, The Dark Prince

“Beautiful princesses and beautiful, strong queens are brainwashed into thinking ho’s and B****’s are virtuous titles.”
Delano Johnson, Words That Changed the World

Kimberly Black
“In writing, a good guy must never break any of the Ten Commandments. A bad guy must break every one. That's why writing female characters is so much fun. They're not GUYS at all.”
Kimberly Black, A Fiction Writer's Character Workbook

Tara Brown

and strong look invincible.
She walked with the Universe
on her shoulders and made it
look like a pair of wings.”

L.P. Maxa
“I hope that your plane crashes over the ocean and piranhas eat your balls. It was lovely meeting you, you self-righteous egoistical son of a bitch. I can see where Joey gets his psychotic behavior.”
L.P. Maxa, Dominic and Corey

Whitney Johnson
“When you disrupt yourself, you are looking for growth, so if you want to muscle up a curve, you have to push and pull against objects and barriers that would constrain and constrict you. That is how you get stronger.”
Whitney Johnson, Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work

Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom: Great mind

Maggie Young
“Men,you say you want a strong, intelligent, truly independent woman who wants you rather than needs you, who inspires you, who pushes you towards being yourself, who can stick by you through the hardest times, and who can be your rock through life's obstacles.
But you need to know that a truly strong, independent woman does not walk through life with her heart wide open. She has had to put up walls to block toxicity to obtain her strength. She is skeptical and always on alert from a lifetime of defense against predators. She is going to be a bit jaded, a little cynical, and a little scary because those qualities come with the struggle of obtaining that strength that gravitates you. She is going to doubt and question your good intentions because it has become her adaptability instincts that have allowed her to thrive.
She is not a ball of sunshine. She has flaws. She has a past. She has her demons. She knows better than to just let down her barriers for you simply because you voice a desire to enter. You have to prove your right of entrance. She will assume the worst of you because the worst has happened. If you want her to see otherwise, prove her wrong.”
Maggie Young

“She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible.”
Ariana Dancu

Heather R. Blair
“Did you really think giving yourself up to me would save her?”

Miles gave a wide, slow smile that showed the glint of his fangs, his eyes never leaving Reegan’s face even as Kelsey moved into his line of sight.

“Not at all. I merely thought it would give her time to save herself, you deluded piece of shit.”
Heather R. Blair, Phoenix Rising
