Five favourite Friday quotes – and today, all of them are from women:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
I think of this last quote frequently, perhaps twice a week. To me, it’s encapsulates that Stoic ideal perfectly.
