Two for Tuesday: Inspirational Quotes

I’m enjoying this Women’s History Month theme so far, let me know if you’re loving it, too. This week’s prompt is to present two inspirational quotes from women. It was so hard to first find just two women, then increasingly more difficult to find just two quotes but I enjoyed narrowing the search.

Success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives. – Michelle Obama.

FLOTUS Michelle Obama Teases About Post-White House Endeavors

This was the first quote that popped up and it just seemed perfect. Then again, so did every quote on that page. Michelle Obama is such an inspiration and I just love the impact she’s made over this past decade. She was the first lady that I grew up seeing and I’m forever grateful for that.

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained. – Marie Curie

The Nobel Prize: Where Are the Women? | HuffPost

I remember doing a presentation on Marie Curie for my seventh grade science class. I was not a big fan of science back then, but researching Marie Curie’s life and the resounding impact she left behind was an eye-opening experience.

Who are some women who have made a positive impact on the world?

What are some of your favorite quotes?

Two for Tuesday: Books by WoC

Week 2: Two books written by women of color

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

I can’t go too long without making a plug for my bookstagram. The photo above was taken by yours truly. I read The Poet X at the beginning of this year and I absolutely loved it. As a poet myself, this book spoke to me.

This Side of Home by Renee Watson

YA Books About Black Girls — 8 YA Books About Black Girls ...

I read This Side of Home a few summers ago and it’s a book that has always stuck with me. I think about the twins quite often and I really want to read another book by Renee Watson. Her writing style is honestly beautiful.

Have you read either of these books?

What are your thoughts?

Happy Women’s History month everyone! I think I’m going to making this month’s prompts themed around that.

Week 1: Two books with a strong female lead

These books can feature superheroes, activists, or just a woman who knows what she’s doing.

One of the main reasons I started this blog was to talk about diverse literature and it’s just grown from there. Let’s shine the spotlight on some women of color!

It’s up to you whether you want these quotes to be from books or not. Let’s get inspirational!
