March 8th is the 103nd Anniversary of International Women’s Day
Google marks the International Women’s Day with a bright, semi-diaphanous “Doodle.” On Google’s search homepage, the overlapping-letter logo has the universal female symbol stand in for the ”G”; the second “O” has sprouted a marigold-yellow flower; and the usually blue characters are now tinted purple. Both the violet shades and the female Venus symbol visually echo the Women’s Day logo itself.
Not to be confused with
March 8th is International Very Good Looking Damn Smart Woman’s Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking Damn Smart Woman.
WOMEN ARE UNIQUE
She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens.
She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings when she feels like crying.
She cries when she’s happy and laughs when she’s afraid. Her love is unconditional.
There’s only one thing wrong with her. She forgets what she’s worth!
Pass this to every woman you know. Remind her that she’s unique.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,
spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

The great and almost only comfort about being a woman is that one can always pretend to be more stupid than one is and no one is surprised.
Gloria Steinem, American Feminist
Someone once asked me why women don’t gamble as much as men do and I gave the commonsensical reply that we don’t have as much money. That was a true but incomplete answer. In fact, women’s total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage.

Mind is the master power that molds and makes,
And we are Mind, and evermore we take
The tool of thought, and shaping what we will,
Bring forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills,
We think in secret, and it comes to pass -
Our world is but our looking glass.
– James Allen
come out and play,
reveal your inner treasures.
The sparkle in your eyes,
the natural swing in your walk,
you radiate excitement and enthusiasm.
You need no latest fashion,
No expensive hair cuts,
No blinding big accessories.
You glow in your passions,
passionate in your pursuits,
you know what you are made of.
You are not easily bothered,
by the mindless opinions of others,
you know very well where you want to go.
you are a joy to watch,
an inspiration to others,
your pure soul an endless marvel.
let your brilliance shine through,
your eyes speak of true inner beauty.
