It's tough to say that women think differently than men, but judging by these women's quotes, we do.  I'm not sure that's a bad thing; in fact, I think it's a good thing.

Breeze through these women's quotes, and what stands out?  Service to others, dignity within ourselves, and a connection to others.

Those are very powerful feelings.  As women continue to take a stronger position in the worlds of politics and economics, let us fervently pray that we take these feelings with us.  

As Janis Joplin so aptly put it:  

Don't compromise yourself.  You're all you've got.


Women's quotes that speak of service to others:

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.
Margaret Fuller

Women's quotes that speak of our connection to others:

It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself, which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable.
