“Women are still in emotional bondage as long as we need to worry that we might have to make a choice between being heard and being loved.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“When a woman rises up in glory, her energy is magnetic and her sense of possibility contagious.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“If a man is unmarried, he is called a bachelor. If a woman is unmarried, she is called a spinster or an old maid. What is it about an unmarried woman that poses such a threat to the patriarchal order? Mainly, it is that women are no one's property when we're unmarried. We're under no one's control, and neither are our children. There is no telling what we might do or say.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“You need not apologize for being brilliant, talented, gorgeous, rich, or smart.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“The story doesn't begin with grown women being massacred in the workplace or in the press. It begins with innocent little girls who become convinced, for whatever reason, that the girl within them isn't good enough.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“What is a princess, and what is a queen? Why is the princess often a pejorative description of a certain type of woman, and the word queen hardly ever applied to women at all? A princess is a girl who knows that she will get there, who is on her way perhaps but is not yet there. She has power but she does not yet wield it responsibly. She is indulgent and frivolous. She cries but not yet noble tears. She stomps her feet and does not know how to contain her pain or use it creatively.

A queen is wise. She has earned her serenity, not having had it bestowed on her but having passed her tests. She has suffered and grown more beautiful because of it. She has proved she can hold her kingdom together. She has become its vision. She cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She rules with authentic power.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“We don't know how to be women because we were taught it was not OK to be girls. Our most natural impulses were thwarted and distorted.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“I conquered outer worlds just as he had. I expressed masculine strength and power just as he had. But it didn't bring me closer to him or to others like him because I had become one of the guys, and that's not what most men are looking for. He had never loved me for being a great guy.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“But it is not regressive to surrender to our feminine selves. It's the most progressive line if development because it honors, instead of represses, our emotions.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“We are afraid to allow ourselves to blossom fully because of the general disapproval that fills our air whenever a 'little lady' forgets her place.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“Don't stop now. Keep going. The next time someone makes you feel though, winning as you are, perhaps you're getting too big for your britches; say to them silently, "i haven't even started yet.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“The world as it has very little use for your womanhood. You are considered a weaker sex and are treated as a sexual object. You are thoroughly dispensable except for bearing children. Your youth is the measure of your worth, and your age is the measure of your worthlessness. Do not look to the world for your sustenance or for your identity as a woman because you will not find them there. The world despises you.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
“Men in our culture have been spoiled, treated with false reverence instead of respect.”
Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth
