Happy Women’s History Month: Words From Women Who Inspire


In honor of Women’s History Month, it’s only right for JaGurl TV to take a moment to share some inspirational quotes from black women who have made it their mission to beat the odds and constantly set milestones.

Queen Latifah:

“You can’t let fear paralyze you. The worse that can happen is you fail but guess what: you get up and try again. Feel the pain, get over it, get up, dust yourself off and keep it moving.”

Jada Pinkett Smith:

 “I have a thing for doors. I always think of them as a threshold to something new.”

Oprah Winfrey:

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. Your true passion should feel like breathing; it’s that natural.”

Michelle Obama:

“We need to do a better job putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.”

Missy Elliot:

“Me personally, I don’t ask too much, but I do ask Him to continue to bless me successfully, financially, and just to keep me humble.”

Cardi B:

“If you want it, and the more you keep hearing you can’t have it, you just go and get it.” 


“When I’m not feeling my best, I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”


“When you realize who you live for, and who’s important to please, a lot of people will actually start living. I am never going to get caught up in that. I’m gonna look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it – and I lived it for me.”

Kamala Harris:

“There will be people who say to you, ‘You are out of your lane,'” Harris said during the 2020 Black Girls Lead conference. “They are burdened by only having the capacity to see what has always been instead of what can be. But don’t you let that burden you.” 

Keke Palmer:

“I believe your reality is what you make it, what you choose to see, and what you choose to allow yourself to do. There are possibilities all around you – magical all around you – no matter what situation you’re in.”
