Meghan Markle Quotes

Now that you know about Meghan Markle’s net worth, her early life and career, let’s check out some of her quotes that we love.

“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.”

 “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?”

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

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

“Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want, but more importantly, the education they have the right to receive. And for women and girls in developing countries, this is vital.” 

“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.”

“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?” 

 “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.” 

 “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.”
