If there’s one thing I love about Michelle Obama, it’s her speeches. You can’t listen to Michelle and not take at least one powerful quote that will change your life from it. That’s why I decided to share 20 Michelle quotes that I think every woman should live by.

By the way, make sure to watch Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ Documentary on Netflix, it’s so inspiring, especially for women.

See quotes below:

1. “You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

 

 

 

 

2. “When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.”
