Speak Your Mind

Edna St. Vincent Millay

"Be who you are and say what you feel

because those who mind don't matter

and those who matter don't mind."

Dr. Seuss

"Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind
- even if your voice shakes."
Maggie Kuhn Richards


“And even when they refuse to listen, I'll keep talking anyway, hoping on a slim chance
that the things inside my head are worth something to someone.”

Nadège Richards

“When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation

you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul

helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.”


Shannon L. Alder 


“We must teach our girls that if they speak their mind, they can create the world they want to see.”


Robyn Silverman


"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct,
for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.
If you're right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind.
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth."

Mahatma Gandhi
“My silences had not protected me. Your silence will not protect you. But for every real word spoken,
for every attempt I had ever made to speak those truths for which I am still seeking,
I had made contact with other women while we examined the words
to fit a world in which we all believed, bridging our differences.”

Audre Lorde
