Leadership Insights from Women at Oracle

Breaking Marble Ceilings and Burning Eyes

Guest Author

Here we are, only 10 days into 2007 and I've heard/read some great new quotes about women that are sure to be captured and reprinted in quotation books and calendars some day.   (I think that these are even worthy of publication in Bartlett's next edition!)

Both are great quotes because they speak of women and optimism for the future.

"...[T]oday we have broken the
marble ceiling. For our daughters and our granddaughters, the sky is
the limit. Anything is possible for them..."  

-Nancy Pelosi, January 4, 2007 during her speech to the United Stated Congress upon being elected as the first woman Speaker of the House.

"The future is so bright for them it burns my eyes..."
-Oprah Winfrey, January 8, 2007 during a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper on 360 when talking about the potential of the 150+ young South African women attending her newly opened leadership institute.

My goal over 2007 is to also listen for great quotes from Sun Women -- as our local women's groups get their networking sessions rolling this new calendar year, I'm sure that I'll be hearing even more inspiring quotes from women to share on this blog.  

What are some of your favorite quotes by or about women?
