As been observed before, we sometimes feel like it’s Beyoncé’s world and we’re just living in it—in the sense that her music is everywhere, true, but more so that her message of female empowerment pervades our every thought pattern.

Beyoncé is just one of the more ubiquitous examples of inspirational female power, so it’s easy to want to cling to her lyrics and quotes on a regular basis—but there are countless women who continue to inspire, elevate, and empower the female gender.

From politicians like Margaret Thatcher to pop culture icons such as Madonna and Taylor Swift, they offer very powerful things to women (and the world) at large. See our top 65 strong women quotes that are guaranteed to inspire you below.

1. Women have to work much harder to make it in this world. It really pisses me off that women don’t get the same opportunities as men do, or money for that matter. Because lets face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define our values and to define what’s sexy and what’s feminine and that’s bullshit. At the end of the day, it’s not about equal rights, it’s about how we think. We have to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. — Beyoncé

 

2. Sit down and ask yourself, ‘What is the most important thing to me?’ What grosses me out the most? What makes me the most upset — is it healthcare? Is it so many people being hungry in our culture? Is it sexual abuse?  Mix that with doing something you love, something you could keep doing forever and ever. For me it was ending violence against women, and I mixed it with music. And I’ve had a 25-year career. So that’s my advice: Find something you really care about and mix that with something you love doing. — Kathleen Hanna

 

3. Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with. —Michelle Obama

 

4. We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced. — Malala Yousafzai

 

5. I would rather be handsome for an hour than pretty for a week. — Tilda Swinton

 

6. Take care of yourself now that you’re old enough to know how. Drink water, sleep eight hours (I wish), and don’t go within 400 feet of a tanning booth or I’ll slap you. Hard. — Olivia Wilde

 

7. Instead of looking at the past, I put myself ahead twenty years and try to look at what I need to do now in order to get there then –Diana Ross

 

8. I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay. — Madonna

 

9. Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you. — Hillary Clinton

 

10.When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier. — Sheryl Sandberg

 

11. I said, ‘Instead of going in the direction that a lot of the women singers are going in [revealing], I’ll be very, very sexy under 18 pounds of chiffon and lace and velvet…I will have mystique.’ — Stevie Nicks

 

12.I have come to realize making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of how you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion you want, and do what makes you happy. That’s my life motto. — Demi Lovato

 

13. The girls who were unanimously considered beautiful often rested on their beauty alone. I felt I had to do things, to be intelligent and develop a personality in order to be seen as attractive. By the time I realized maybe I wasn’t plain and might even possibly be pretty, I had already trained myself to be a little more interesting and informed. — Diane Von Furstenberg

 

14. Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. There is no yesterday, no tomorrow, it’s all the same day. –Janis Joplin

 

15. I’ll be honest with you. I’m a little bit of a loner. It’s been a big part of my maturing process to learn to allow people to support me. I tend to be very self-reliant and private. And I have this history of wanting to work things out on my own and protect people from what’s going on with me. — Kerry Washington

 

16. Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination. — Mae Jemison

18. The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn. — Gloria Steinem

 

19. Buckle up, and know that it’s going to be a tremendous amount of work, but embrace it. –Tory Burch
