Quotable Nerdy Chick: Golda Meir

So, I’ve been traveling around SC this week promoting THE BOY PROJECT and it has been both exhilarating and exhausting!  Already early in the blog’s life and I missed a Friday post…. but here it is. Notice that I’ve changed the topic? At the suggestion of Sudipta, and because the response has been better to the quotes than the activity, I’ve decided to try a Quotable Nerdy Chick post every Friday instead of a Pick of the Chick Chicktivity. I’ll still sprinkle those in from time to time when I find something awesome to do! Feel free to comment on this change. I love feedback!

When I was researching quotable females, I loved some of the things Golda Meir had to say. Here is a little about her:

Golda Meir was elected the fourth Prime Minister of the State of Israel in 1969. She was Israel’s first woman to hold the office and only the third woman in the world to be named Prime Minister.  As Prime Minister, many of her famous quotes refer to war and to relationships between nations, but she also had a lot of other inspirational and insightful observations. Five of these follow.

Golda Meir Quotes:

  • Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

  • I can honestly say that I was never affected by the question of the success of an undertaking. If I felt it was the right thing to do, I was for it regardless of the possible outcome.

  • To be successful, a woman has to be much better at her job than a man.

  • Not being beautiful was the true blessing. Not being beautiful forced me to develop my inner resources. The pretty girl has a handicap to overcome.

  • One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present.

    The first quote above is my favorite! To see other Nerdy Chick Quotes click HERE. I will be adding to this list weekly… but only one quote per chick!
