Meghan Markle Quotes

Meghan Duchess Of Sussex

Meghan Markle quotes: the Duchess of Sussex sounds off.

“Make a choice: continue living your life feeling muddled in this abyss of self-misunderstanding, or you find your identity independent of it.”

“You draw your own box. You introduce yourself as who you are. You create the identity you want for yourself.”

“Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being the change you wish to see in the world. Above all, don’t ever forget your worth.”

“Don’t try to win the part, just win the room.”

“Take things with a grain of salt, and find balance within your life. On your lunch break, leave to go and get some fresh air. You don’t need to make your life your job. I have to find that balance for myself, as well. I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.”

“As you get older, you become more comfortable in your skin and comfortable in saying no to things. I’ve also learned that saying no is just as valuable as saying yes. It’s something that, I think, comes with age and really having a sense of your self-worth. And then you make choices based on that.”

“We just need to be kinder to ourselves. If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be?”

“You can really make a difference, not just for yourself but for lots of other people.”

“We are meant to be building each other up. So, use your voices both on and off-line to do just that: build each other up, support each other. There will always be negative voices. And sometimes those voices can appear on the outside and sometimes they can appear to be painfully loud. But you can use your own voice to drown out that noise.”

“Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want, but more importantly, the education they have the right to receive.”

“Don’t give it five minutes if you’re not going to give it five years.”

“We make a choice on what we click on, we make a choice on what we read, we make a choice in what we engage in. That is our personal decision to not feed into negativity. To really be more cause-driven and action-based.”

“Your confidence comes in knowing that a woman by your side, not behind you, is actually something you shouldn’t be threatened about but, opposed to that, you should feel really empowered in having that additional support; this is really about us working together.”

“Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents. The basic and fundamental human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community.”

“Women’s suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness.”

“As women, it is 100% our responsibility, I think, to support and uplift each other, to champion each other as we aim to succeed, to not set each other up for failure but instead to really be there rallying around each other and say, ‘I want to help you.'”

“Women make up more than half of the world’s population and potential, so it is neither just nor practical for their voices, for our voices, to go unheard at the highest levels of decision-making. The way that we change that, in my opinion, is to mobilize girls and women to see their value as leaders, and to support them in these efforts.”

“Women need a seat at the table, they need an invitation to be seated there, and in some cases, where this is not available, they need to create their own table.”

“It is said that girls with dreams become women with vision. May we empower each other to carry out such vision—because it isn’t enough to simply talk about equality. One must believe it. And it isn’t enough to simply believe in it. One must work at it. Let us work at it. Together. Starting now.”

“Every girl has potential. She has promise. She has the right to learn, the right to be heard, the right to play, and to discover.”

“When girls are given the right tools to succeed, they can create incredible futures, not only for themselves but also for those around them.”

“I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home or anywhere you go is just knowing your value.”

“You can be a woman who wants to look good and still stand up for the equality of women. There’s no uniform for feminism; you are a feminist exactly the way you are.”

“No matter what you look like, you should be taken seriously. I think it’s really great to be able to be a feminist, and be feminine. To embrace both.”

“I am proud to be a woman and a feminist.”

“As I’m getting older, my approach to aging is quite different. I make sure that I take care of my skin and body, especially with the work hours I have. And I don’t just take care of myself for aesthetic reasons but because how I feel is dictated by what I’m eating, how much rest I’m getting and how much water I’m drinking.”

“I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating.”

“If you go for a stroll, have a picnic or lunch with a glass of wine—it doesn’t get better than that.”

“I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches; I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works. And this type of work is what feeds my soul and fuels my purpose.”

“If you focus on yourself, your values and your moral compass, it’s easy, I think it’s very easy to just live with truth and live with authenticity, and that is how I choose to move through the world.”

“The quote, which I have posted in my room, comes from artist Georgia O’Keefe: ‘I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.’ This quote is a reminder to speak authentically about issues that are important to me, despite a history of facing harsh criticism.”

“If there was a wrong, if there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to say something. And why not me?”

“You’ll often hear people say: ‘You are helping people find their voices.’ I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find a voice. They have a voice. They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen.”

“With fame comes opportunity, but it also includes responsibility: to advocate and share, to focus less on glass slippers and more on pushing through glass ceilings. And, if I’m lucky enough, to inspire.”

“I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship. I’m focused on my passions and my family.”

“On my journey of trying to get what I wanted, of trying to see my dream come to fruition, I would learn who I am. That I would discover that I am enough.”

“You are going to lead with love, you are going to lead with compassion, you are going to use your voice. You are going to use your voice in a stronger way than you’ve ever been able to. You are going to have empathy for those who don’t see the world through the same lens that you do.”

“You need to know that you’re enough—a mantra that has now ingrained itself so deeply within me that not a day goes by without hearing it chime in my head. You are enough just as you are. You, my sweet friend, you are enough.”

“Continue to believe in yourselves, believe in what makes you unique, and don’t be afraid to do what you know is right even when it’s not popular. Even when it’s never been done before. Even if it scares people. And even if it scares you.”
