“I think the truth of the matter is, people who end up as ‘first’ don’t actually set out to be first.They set out to do something they love and it just so happens that they are the first to do it.” 

– Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

It is the ultimate luxury to combine passion and contribution. It's also a very clear path to happiness.

– Sheryl Sandberg

“Some people think that you have to be the loudest voice in the room to make a difference. That is just not true. Often, the best thing we can do is turn down the volume. When the sound is quieter, you can actually hear what someone else is saying. And that can make a world of difference.”

– Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley

“If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.”

– Former United Kingdom Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
