Quotes from Women in South Africa.

August abruptly ended, and I am so excited to see what the new month has in store for me. I had a lot of plans for August for women, but my schedule got disrupted. I did not manage to execute everything that which I had planned. In some weeks, like the previous one, I only posted once. I felt guilty the whole time. You guys should give me some tips on how to stick to a blogging schedule because ‘wow’, it is a struggle for me.

In today’s post, I would love to wrap up Women’s month with quotes from some of my favorite icons from all over South Africa. In their different respective spheres of influence. From women in media, ministry, and business to women in hospitality, health, economics (etcetera). I hope one day to meet them in person and sit under their wisdom and viewpoints about life. That would be a dream come true.

I hope every quote resonates and inspires you.

Sometimes you may feel like you have no choice at all. Sometimes you may be overwhelmed with options. Whatever the case, you have to choose. SERENITY, COURAGE, AND WISDOM. CHOOSE RIGHT!

I grew up in a world where a woman with my kind of skin and my kind of hair, was never considered to be beautiful. And, it’s time that that stops.

If what you do for a living is not fulfilling, if it’s not what makes your heart beat faster, it’s not too late to chase after your career dreams.


It is organizational and societal factors that limit our abilities as women from reaching the top, not our personal ones.

I continue to draw wisdom and knowledge from these phenomenal women. They broke many barriers in their spheres of influence. It has been an incredible experience to compile the legacy of their quoted words on my blog.

Do tell me which quote spoke to you the most and why, in the comments section. You can also share any other quote from any iconic woman in your life.
