luvvie ajayi quote

“In a world that wants women to whisper, I choose to yell”

“Knowing our privilege does not make us villains, but it should make us more conscious about the parts we play in systems that are greater than us. It should make us be more thoughtful; it should humble us. We need to admit that some of us had a head start and aren’t just flourishing on our strength alone.”

“Real women breathe.”

“Being a ‘good man’ is something you do, not something you are.”

“Telling the truth – telling thoughtful truths – should not be a revolutionary act. Speaking truths to power should not be sacrificial, but they are.”

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

“People should inspire you, but you can’t compare what you’re doing to everything that everyone else is doing. Because you’ll start thinking that you’re not enough.”

“If it takes me to be the person to say that one thing difficult to say and inspire somebody else to do the same, then I’ve done something right.”

“I’m not interested in living in a world where my race is not part of who i am. I am interested in living in a world where our races, no matter what they are, don’t define our trajectory in life.”

“Do one thing today that scares you – and you already know what that is! – and go do it. Even if you just make one step toward it, it will help you look at the world differently.”

“People should inspire you, but you can’t compare what you’re doing to everything that everyone else is doing. Because you’ll start thinking that you’re not enough.”
