Favorite Quotes from Beyonce
“I truly believe that women should be financially independent of their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.” – Beyonce
“We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect so that as they grow up gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.” – Beyonce
“When you love and accept yourself when you know who really cares about you, and when you learn from your mistakes, then you stop caring about what people who don’t know you think.” – Beyonce
“I don’t feel like I have to please anyone. I’m grown. Can do what I want. Can say what I want. I can retire if I want. That’s why I’ve worked hard. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health — take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish.” – Beyonce
“I wanted to sell a million records, and I sold a million records. Wanted to go platinum; I went platinum. I’ve been working nonstop since I was 15. I don’t even know how to chill out. I don’t really like to call myself a brand, and I don’t like to think of myself as a brand. I’m a singer, a songwriter, a musician and a performer. And an actress, and all the other things that I do. When you add it all together, some might call it a brand, but that’s not my focus.” – Beyonce
