happy international women’s day!
today i just want to share some inspirational quotes i’ve found browsing the web. they’re all from women. Please, notice that it’s not because i’m disrespectful that i’m quoting together actresses and Mother Teresa… they are all women that say something meaningful for me. of course there are somebody, such as Mother Teresa, that not only gave inspiration by words but they used their entire life to inspire people. but i’m sure that even great writers, such as Jane Austen, or innovative designer, such as Chanel, can be a model for some women in some fields. i’ve found people to admire at the supermarket, when i was them helping strangers, between friends, that started new job adventures believing in what they were doing, in my family, when after the 2nd WW they found the courage and the strenght to stand up again. some of them are women and some are (or were) men with great women at their side.

#"It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us.
