Quotes on Being a "Girl"


Quotes on Being a Girl or a Woman

“I’m convinced that women and girls are the most dogmatic creatures on this earth; where men will compete as a sport, as a competition to see who’s greater, women will move heaven and hell when provoked to do so and will by no means stop their efforts until they have shifted the paradigms of their entire world into a different place.” –Stephanie Schneider

“If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.” 
“All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren't.” 
― Marilyn Monroe

“That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they're not much to look at, or even if they're sort of stupid, you fall in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. $%@!. They can drive you crazy. They really can.” 
 J.D. Salinger

“You’ll never understand women until you stop analyzing the words they’re saying and start watching what they look like when they’re saying those words.”  - Stephanie Schneider

“Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.” 
 Betsey Johnson

“In my experience, boys are predictable. As soon as they think of something, they do it. Girls are smarter—they plan ahead. They think about not getting caught.” 
 Eoin Colfer

“I always believed that by being born a woman I was dealt a weaker hand than a man is given in the game of life.  I’ve come to realize I was right in a sense, but wrong when I realized I was a better bluffer and knew when to hold.”  - Stephanie Schneider

“Not knowing you can't do something, is sometimes all it takes to do it.” ― Ally Carter

“We felt the imprisonment of being a girl, the way it made your mind active and dreamy, and how you ended up knowing which colors went together. We knew that the girls were our twins, that we all existed in space like animals with identical skins, and that they knew everything about us though we couldn’t fathom them at all. We knew, finally, that the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them.” ― Jeffrey Eugenides

“The saddest thing for a girl to do is to dumb herself down for a guy.” ― Emma Watson

“As a plain Jane sort of girl growing up, I am utterly convinced that I am experiencing a greater level of contentment and joy unlocking my hidden beauty in this one day at 30 than a gorgeous woman has experienced her entire lifetime.  Beauty is in the mind.” –Stephanie Schneider

“Sometimes I just want to go in a room and break things and scream. Like, it’s so much pressure all the time and if you get upset or angry, people say, ‘Are you on the rag of something?’ And it’s like I want to say, ‘No. I’m just pissed off right now. Can’t I just be pissed off? How come that’s not okay for me?’ Like my dad will say, ‘I can’t talk to you when you’re hysterical.’ And I’m totally not being hysterical! I’m just mad. And he’s the one losing it. But then I feel embarrassed anyway. So I slap on that smile and pretend everything’s okay even though it’s not.” ― Libba Bray

“Oh, you mysterious girls, when you are fifty-two we shall find you out; you must come into the open then. If the mouth has fallen sourly yours the blame: all the meanness your youth concealed have been gathering in your face. But the pretty thoughts and sweet ways and dear, forgotten kindnesses linger there also, to bloom in your twilight like evening primroses.” ― J.M. Barrie

“Men, if you really want to know the trick to making a woman fall all over you, I’ll let you know, it’s easy.  Listen when she talks, never talk over her, never diminish the importance of what she is trying to convey and ALWAYS make time for her when she says it is important to.  Women aren’t stupid, they think through everything, including your busy work schedule, your appointments and your busy lives.  So you better believe if she has reached out to you in the midst of all of these things, in hopes to simply communicate, it’s probably pretty dog gone important to listen.  Listening and showing you understand are like diamonds to a woman, and she will forever respect and adore you for it.”  - Stephanie Schneider

“I can't forget things, or ignore them-bad things that happen," I said. "I'm a lay-it-all-out person, a dwell-on-it person, an obsess-about-it person. If I hold things in and try to forget or pretend, I become a madman and have panic attacks. I have to talk.” ― E. Lockhart

“I’m a wild girl from a cursed line of women. I paw at the ground and run under the moon. I like the feel of my own body. I’m not a slut or a nympho or someone who’s just asking for it. And if I talk too loud it’s just that I’m trying to be heard.” ― Libba Bray

“Girls, there are poets who learn from you
to say, what you, in your aloneness, are;
and they learn through you to live distantness,
as the evenings through the great stars
become accustomed to eternity.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke

“I’m not trying to be vein in talking about my looks and my weight loss all of the time.  I guess I’m just excited because when I finally look good you might finally see me, and it’s been quite lonely living so invisibly as this, you see, as your eyes drift from my words and over at the vapory thin figures that pass by, never hearing me at all.”  - Stephanie Schneider
