Women of Wisdom Quotes

Midlife brings with it the opportunity for growth and exploration of our inner worlds. It prepares us for our wisdom years, prodding and guiding us along our path to wisdom. It is not always an easy journey, as we have much to learn, but it is a powerfully important one, both for ourselves and those we leave behind.

Women have been gifted over the generations with deep wisdom, perspective, compassion and the ability to speak the truth. We stand to learn so much from those who have gone and go before us, as they carry the scars of great learning that may ease our own journeys. When we follow their lead, while listening to the winds of our own inner spirit, we can navigate the course of our lives, going where we are led, finding what we find, and giving what we have to give.

Take heart. Stand tall. Lean on the pillars of the many wise women that travel at your side and into the winds of fortune and change, knowing that you are not alone in your journey. Be lifted up by all that carry on the tradition of the wise woman, and breathe deeply the gift of life.

  1. Thank you for these beautiful quotes from women. My favorite, “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”–Mother Teresa. What if we all adopted this love about “great love”? The world would be a much lovelier place.
