Inspiring Women... 10 Quotes from Angela

Welcome back!

Angela Merkel was born in Hamburg, West Germany, a typical German child but with family ties in politics.  As a youth, she was a member of the Free German Youth, a movement of the young people sponsored by the Socialist Unity Party.  

In 1990, Merkel was elected for constituency, which was followed by six more federal elections.  Quickly, she was appointed to the Cabinet, serving as the Minister for Women and Youth.  She continued to grow in public opinion and challenged the existing government.

In 2005, Angela Merkel assumed the office of Chancellor of Germany - serving as the first woman in that role.  She has remained in that role, despite challenges through the years.  Merkel has been described as the leader of the European Union, and been noted by Forbes magazine twice as the world's second most powerful person.

Chancellor Merkel graced the cover of Time as the Person of the Year in December 2015, which declared her to be "Chancellor of the Free World."  She has continued to be spoken of as the "leader of the free world."  

Angela has accomplished much - and I'm sure there will be more to be seen from her!  Please join me in appreciating 10 quotes from this accomplished woman below:

I am thankful for the way I was raised, to be positive. Even when times have gotten rough I have always tried to look on the bright side. Even when I was put down, yelled at and made feel insignificant, I still thought things were alright. I did realize when enough is enough.

A good compromise is one where everybody makes a contribution.
One can remain more sure-footed by taking small steps, but perhaps achieve greater speed by taking bigger steps. Of course, one also runs the risk of setting out in a completely erroneous direction. Surely the important thing isn’t the length of our steps, but that the objective is clear.

Ordinary people regard a man of a certain force and flexibility of character as they do a lion; they look at him with a sort of wonder, perhaps they admire him; but they will on no account house with him.
I might bend, but I will NEVER break because it’s in my nature as a strong woman.

Look forward to the future and look forward to the unknown. Nothing stays the same and people change. One day that hurt and pain will be a distant memory.

Take whatever life has given you and create the best life you possibly can - you have no excuses, nothing can hold you back...  but you.  Don't give yourself the time to be scared... and settle for nothing less than giving it your all!
