Favorite Careers And Life Quotes

1. "When we traded homemaking for careers, we were implicitly promised economic independence and worldly influence. But a devil of a bargain it has turned out to be in terms of daily life.

If you're lucky, you may have more than one chance to get things right, but second and third chances, like second and third marriages, can be dicey propositions, and they don't come with guarantees....

4. "Stop living within the confines of how others define you! You weren't created to live their life; you were created to live yours - so LIVE it!
