“It's not very easy to grow up into a woman. We are always taught, almost bombarded, with ideals of what we should be at every age in our lives: "This is what you should wear at age twenty", "That is what you must act like at age twenty-five", "This is what you should be doing when you are seventeen." But amidst all the many voices that bark all these orders and set all of these ideals for girls today, there lacks the voice of assurance. There is no comfort and assurance. I want to be able to say, that there are four things admirable for a woman to be, at any age! Whether you are four or forty-four or nineteen! It's always wonderful to be elegant, it's always fashionable to have grace, it's always glamorous to be brave, and it's always important to own a delectable perfume! Yes, wearing a beautiful fragrance is in style at any age!”

Jennifer Elisabeth
“For so many years, I couldn’t understand why every time I thought that someone finally loved me, like… for real, they would eventually turn to vapor. Every person whom I’ve ever loved is trapped inside of my chest. I’ve breathed all of them in so deeply that I’ve nearly choked and died on every soul that I’ve ever given myself to.”
Jennifer Elisabeth, Born Ready: Unleash Your Inner Dream Girl

Adriana Trigiani
“But what Mom never told me is that along the way, you find sisters, and they find you. Girls are cool that way.”
Adriana Trigiani, Viola in Reel Life

J.K. Rowling
“That's what they should teach us here. How girls' brains work... It would be more useful than divination, anyway...”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Cassandra Clare
“Because', she said, 'your problems are not real problems. You're dating two beautiful girls at once. Think about it. That's like...having rock-star problems.'
'Having rock-star problems may be the closest I ever get to being an actual rock star.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Fallen Angels

J.K. Rowling
“I've got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don't want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I'd rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before 'thin'. And frankly, I'd rather they didn't give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons. Let them never be Stupid Girls.”
J.K. Rowling

Justin Bieber
“My friends say I'm a fool to think that you're the one for me, I guess I'm just a sucker for love. (love love) 'Cause honsetly the truth is that you know I'm never leaving, 'cause your my angel sent from above. (bove bove) Me and you can do no wrong. My money is yours give you a lil more 'cause I love ya, love ya. With me girl is where you belong...

-Love Me”
Justin Bieber

Kenny Chesney
“Southern girls are God's gift to the entire male population. There is absolutely no woman finer than one raised below the mason-dixon line and once you go southern may the good Lord help you - you never go back”
Kenny Chesney

Emma Cline
“Poor Sasha. Poor girls. The world fattens them on the promise of love. How badly they need it, and how little most of them will ever get. The treacled pop songs, the dresses described in the catalogs with words like 'sunset' and 'Paris.' Then the dreams are taken away with such violent force; the hand wrenching the buttons of the jeans, nobody looking at the man shouting at his girlfriend on the bus”
Emma Cline, The Girls

Kristen Ashley
“We girls, we're tough, darling. Soft on the outside but, deep down, we're tough.”
Kristen Ashley, The Gamble

“I've had so many bikini waxes, I cry every time I see a Popsicle stick.”
Libba Bray, Beauty Queens

Nader Ebrahimi
“دختر سياسى، بهتر از پسر سياسى است. مردان، انگار كه براى حضور در معركه ى سياست به دنيا مى آيند؛ اما زنان، بر اين ميدان منّت مى گذارند كه پا در آن مى نهند. هر جا زنى به خاطر عدالت مى جنگد، آن جا عطرى پيچيده است شيرين و شورانگيز و بهشتى.”
نادر ابراهیمی, آتش بدون دود کتاب چهارم: واقعیت های پر خون

“I'm not trouble at all. I'm just a guy trying to get a girl to give him the time of day. I'm like every song on the radio.”
Hailey Abbott, Boy Crazy

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Girls, there are poets who learn from you
to say, what you, in your aloneness, are;
and they learn through you to live distantness,
as the evenings through the great stars
become accustomed to eternity.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Images

Meenakshi Gigi Durham
“In the realm of love and sex, it’s girls who are in the position of working hard to adapt themselves to the needs and fantasies of the mercurial males whose approval and attention they seek.”
M. Gigi Durham, The Lolita Effect: The Media Sexualization of Young Girls and What We Can Do About It

bell hooks
“Part of the racialized sexism wants everyone to think that a 15-year old Mexican is not a girl, she’s a woman. We know she’s a girl. We can never emphasize this enough, because this is the fate of colored girls globally right now: the denial of their girlhood, the denial of their childhood, and the constant state of risk and danger they are living in.”
bell hooks, Homegrown: Engaged Cultural Criticism

Jane Austen
“The advantages of natural folly in a beautiful girl have been already set forth by the capital pen of a sister author; and to her treatment of the subject I will only add, in justice to men, that though to the larger and more trifling part of the sex, imbecility in females is a great enhancement of their personal charms, there is a portion of them too reasonable and too well informed themselves to desire anything more in woman than ignorance.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Roman Payne
“What is a Wanderess? Bound by no boundaries, contained by no countries, tamed by no time, she is the force of nature’s course.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Hilary Thayer Hamann
“It was frankly sort of confusing, the way everyone stared at our bodies exactly as they tried to erase the ideas of our bodies from our minds. We were supposed to get over ourselves but no one was supposed to get over us. The female body was our worst handicap and our best advantage -- the surest means to success, the surest course to failure. (p. 72)”
Hilary Thayer Hamann, Anthropology of an American Girl

Allyse Near
“There was something familiar but strange about her - Snow White with a suntan. Cinderella in biker boots. Tough and delicate and magical and real all at once.”
Allyse Near, Fairytales for Wilde Girls

Harper Lee
“I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

C. JoyBell C.
“I can't over-emphasize how important an exquisite perfume is, to be wrapped and cradled in an enchanting scent upon your skin is a magic all on its own! The notes in that precious liquid will remind you that you love yourself and will tell other people that they ought to love you because you know that you're worth it. The love affair created by a good perfume between you and other people, you and nature, you and yourself, you and your memories and anticipations and hopes and dreams; it is all too beautiful a thing!”
C. JoyBell C.

Dave Chappelle
“The girl says "Oh uh-uh, wait a minute! Wait a minute! Just because I'm dressed this way does not make me a whore!" Which is true, Gentlemen, that is true. Just because they dress a certain way doesn't mean they are a certain way. Don't even forget it. But ladies, you must understand that is fucking confusing. It just is. Now that would be like me, Dave Chappelle, the comedian, walking down the street in a cop uniform. Somebody might run up on me saying, "Oh, thank God. Officer, help us! Come on. They're over here. Help us!" "Oh-hoh! Just because I'm dressed this way does not make me a police officer!" See what I mean? All right, ladies, fine. You are not a whore. But you are wearing a whore's uniform.”
Dave Chappelle

Melody Carlson
“Girls can be so petty and jealous. I swear they're worse than guys sometimes. Except they're all quiet about it. They sugarcoat it or else they talk behind each other's backs. It's seriously twisted.”
Melody Carlson, The Jerk Magnet

Alain Robbe-Grillet
“To tell the truth, girls are no longer the way they used to be. They play gangsters, nowadays, just like boys. They organize rackets. They plan holdups and practice karate. They will rape defenseless adolescents. They wear pants... Life has become impossible.”
Alain Robbe-Grillet, Djinn

Amy Mah
“Sleeping with another girl does not always mean you are a lesbian, sometimes it just means the central heating needs fixing”
Amy Mah, Fangs Rule: A Girls Guide to Being a Vampire

“A girl who travels will need someone that questions her, not too little, and not too much. She’ll need someone to read her, but also really listen to her. Because she’ll want to do the same. She’ll want a person that shares an interest but at the same time stays genuine to who they are. Not drown in a puddle of narcissism. And not drown in a lake of fascination.”
lauren klarfeld

Charlotte Brontë
“~Do you like him much?
~I told you I like him a little. Where is the use of caring for him so very much? He is full of faults.
~Is he?
~All boys are.
~More than girls?
~Very likely. Wise people say it is folly to think anyboy perfect, and as to likes and diskiles, we should be friendly to all, and worship none.”
Charlotte Brontë, Villette

Leah Raeder
“Girls get under each other's skin. We get too close, too attached, too crazy, and then we can't let go. Our claws sink too deep. When we separate, we tear each other apart.”
Leah Raeder, Black Iris

Brandi L. Bates
“All those other girls are cake...I'm Crème brûlée...Tiramisu, if you will. Just a few notches above.”
Brandi L. Bates
