17 Quotes Every Girl Boss Should Know

You know that old “Sticks And Stones” quote?

Well, I’ve said it a time or two myself, but don’t really agree with it.

Words can hurt you. Sure, they’re inanimate objects that can’t physically hurt you, but they can hurt something worse than your body – your soul.

I’m always pinning something on Pinterest, and my most recent obsession has been quotes. Whenever I’m feeling down, I go to my quotes board and seek inspiration. Words can break you down, but they can also lift you up.

Today I’m sharing 17 quotes that every girl boss should know. It can be hard to get up every day and have a “get up and go” attitude. Hopefully these quotes will give you that extra boost!

Side note: These quotes apply to guy bosses, too! You boys ain’t left out 😉
