smart girls

I think I post this quote about once per annum:

“If you feel your value lies in being merely decorative, I fear that someday you might find yourself believing that’s all that you really are. Time erodes all such beauty, but what it cannot diminish is the wonderful workings of your mind: Your humor, your kindness, and your moral courage. These are the things I cherish so in you. I so wish I could give my girls a more just world. But I know you’ll make it a better place.”

– Marmee, Little Women

Additionally: (xkcd)

Although not permanently.

To ALL of the smart, beautiful, kind, uniquely talented young women I have been given the opportunity to work with each day – I hope you are able to cut through all of the noise, all of the pressures, all of the expectations – and find your own voice speaking with confidence and your own heart acting out in courage. You are all capable of achieving great things. It is possible for you to “change the world by being yourself.” Remember, “if you want to do this stuff, you won’t be alone.”
