8 WIJSHEDEN VAN VROUWELIJKE SCHRIJVERS

Leren van de wijzen én leren van lezen. Vandaag: 8x wijsheden van vrouwelijke auteurs. May the wisdom of literature be ever in your favor.

1. JANE AUSTEN (PRIDE & PREJUDICE)
“A mind lively and at ease with itself is content to look at nothing and that nothing will always answer back.” 

2. ELIZABETH GILBERT (EAT, PRAY, LOVE)
“Embrace the glorious mess that you are.”

En oké nog eentje dan, omdat Elizabeth er zó veel heeft:

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.”

3. SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR
“Self-knowledge is no guarantee of happiness. But it is on the side of happiness and can supply the coverage to fight for it.”

4. KATHRYN STOCKETT (THE HELP)
“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”

5. ALICE WALKER (THE COLOR PURPLE)
“Look closely at the present you are constructing: it should look like the future you are dreaming.”

6. TONI MORRISON (THE BELOVED)
“You are your best thing.”

7. AMY TAN (THE VALLEY OF AMAZEMENT)
“If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude."

8. CHERYL STRAYED (WILD)
“Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe, I was brave, I was strong."
