Fear is always with us, but we just don't have time for it. Not now.

-----------------------------------

Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in. And, when you stumble, keep faith. And, when you're knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can't or shouldn't go on.–ending her 2008 campaign for president

-----------------------------------

The worst thing that can happen in a democracy–as well as in an individual's life–is to become cynical about the future and lose hope: that is the end, and we cannot let that happen.

-----------------------------------

I think that if you live long enough, you realize that so much of what happens in life is out of your control, but how you respond to it is in your control. That's what I try to remember.

-----------------------------------

People can judge me for what I've done. And I think when somebody's out in the public eye, that's what they do. So I'm fully comfortable with who I am, what I stand for, and what I've always stood for.–on PBS NewsHour in 2014

-----------------------------------

There is a sense that things, if you keep positive and optimistic about what can be done, do work out.–to ELLE in 2012

-----------------------------------

Every moment wasted looking back, keeps us from moving forward…In this world and the world of tomorrow, we must go forward together or not at all.–ending her 2008 campaign for president

Do all the good you can, for all the people you can, in all the ways you can, as long as you can.–on Twitter in 2016

-----------------------------------

You know, everybody has setbacks in their life, and everybody falls short of whatever goals they might set for themselves. That's part of living and coming to terms with who you are as a person.

-----------------------------------

It is often when night looks darkest, it is often before the fever breaks that one senses the gathering momentum for change, when one feels that resurrection of hope in the midst of despair and apathy.–to the NAACP in 1995

-----------------------------------

We need to be as fearless as the women whose stories you have applauded, as committed as the dissidents and the activists you have heard from, as audacious as those who start movements for peace when all seems lost.–at the Women in the World Summit in 2012

-----------------------------------

We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential.–to the UN 4th World Conference in 1995

-----------------------------------

To every little girl who dreams big: Yes, you can be anything you want — even president.–on Twitter in 2016

-----------------------------------

To LGBT men and women worldwide, let me say this: wherever you live and whatever the circumstances of your life, whether you are connected to a network of support or feel isolated and vulnerable, please know that you are not alone.–on International Human Rights Day in 2011

-----------------------------------

You have to be true to yourself. You have to be enough in touch with who you are and what you want, how you want to live and what's important to you, to make your decisions based on that. Sometimes that's very difficult.–to Marie Claire in 2012

-----------------------------------

Whether I am meant to or not, I challenge assumptions about women. I do make some people uncomfortable, which I'm well aware of, but that's just part of coming to grips with what I believe is still one of the most important pieces of unfinished business in human history—empowering women to be able to stand up for themselves.–to Vogue in 2009

-----------------------------------

I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.–on Nightline in 1992

You have just one life to live. It is yours. Own it, claim it, live it, do the best you can with it.–to Marie Claire in 2012

-----------------------------------

We can tell stories all night and we can talk about the women who have inspired us. But what inspires me is not just who they are, but what they do. They roll their sleeves up and they get to work.–at the Women in the World Summit in 2012

-----------------------------------

I know that at a time when so much seems to be pulling us apart, it can be hard to imagine how we'll ever pull together again. I know because I've seen it in the lives of people across America who get knocked down and get right back up. And I know it from my own life.–at her DNC presidential nomination acceptance speech in 2016

-----------------------------------

I have always believed that women are not victims. We are agents of change, we are drivers of progress, we are makers of peace–all we need is a fighting chance.–at the Women in the World Summit in 2016

-----------------------------------

Among the most striking things that I have learned is how much we have in common. I've sat down with people everywhere, discussing what was in their hearts and on their minds. And it doesn't take long to find commonality, which is often overlooked, ignored, dismissed, and rejected otherwise.–at Dublin City University in 2012

-----------------------------------

You can be so proud that, from now on, it will be unremarkable for a woman to win primary state victories, unremarkable to have a woman in a close race to be our nominee, unremarkable to think that a woman can be the President of the United States. And that is truly remarkable.

-----------------------------------

I don’t think feminism, as I understand the definition, implies the rejection of maternal values, nurturing children, caring about the men in your life. That is just nonsense to me.

-----------------------------------

If you really want to know how strongly a country’s health system is, look at the well-being of its mothers.

-----------------------------------

I’m so captivated by all the little things they do and the ways they’re constantly changing. Charlotte and Aidan remind me so much of how Chelsea was at each age ... It’s incredible to watch Chelsea as a mom. Occasionally she’ll say or do something that reminds me of how I was as a young mother, and it’s really special to see it come full circle.

-----------------------------------

Having that next generation right there and thinking about everything you want to do both personally but in our cases, publicly and professionally, to give that child the best chance in life to be all he or she can be, that is profoundly moving to me.

-----------------------------------

My mother always told me that life is not about what happens to you ― it’s about what you do with what happens to you. So much of being a mom is improvising and making the best of what life throws at you, because there isn’t always a right answer to parenting. My advice for new moms is this: You’ve have never been a mom before, and your baby is new to this world. So be kind to yourself, and be patient. It takes time, but you’ll get the hang of it!

-----------------------------------

At the end of the day, every parent wants what’s best for our kids: a safe community, good schools, a chance to grow up safe and healthy. That’s true regardless of our politics.

-----------------------------------

I think every working parent has at least one story of a time they struggled to balance work and family, and came up short. For me, it was one morning back in Arkansas. I was a young lawyer, due to represent a client in court. Two-year-old Chelsea was running a fever. Bill was out of town. And our babysitter called to say she was sick, too. We had no family nearby, and no other sitters. I was frantic because I was representing a client and had to be in court that day. Finally, I called a trusted friend who came to my rescue. I spent the whole day at work with my stomach in knots, feeling terrible for leaving my sick child. I called home at every break, and rushed back the second court got out. It was only when I walked into the house and saw my friend reading to Chelsea ― who was clearly feeling much better ― that my stomach finally stopped aching. I was one of the lucky ones ― I had back-up. But a lot of parents don’t.

-----------------------------------

I just think that giving a child a chance and sharing what you have with a child is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, as well as a child.

-----------------------------------

The other advice I shared with Chelsea when she had Charlotte ... is to talk, read and sing to your newborn from the very beginning. Parents play such an important role in their child’s development, and this is one of the best ways you can start to shape your baby’s future. We used to joke that Charlotte’s first words were going to be, ‘Enough already with the talking, reading and singing!’

-----------------------------------

It is important that women support each other. Most of us will at some point get married and have children, and how you balance that really depends on the quality of your friends and whether your friends are there for you. It also depends on what the policies are in your workplace. I always supported the women I worked with having time off to go to parent-teacher conferences and doctors’ appointments or bringing their infants into the office. I’m a huge supporter of on-site child care. You need much more sensitivity in the workplace to the challenges young women go through in trying to do two very difficult jobs well.

-----------------------------------

We used to make up chores for Chelsea to do. We lived in the Governor’s Mansion, but she was expected to make her bed and clean up after herself — things you would do in any household. You have to inculcate those values; you can’t assume that somehow they will be transmitted to your children. It’s also important, particularly for privileged kids, to involve them in charitable activities. Bill and I give our two young nephews a certain amount of money every month, and out of that they have to contribute $25 to a charity. Then they have to write a letter telling us why they’ve contributed it. One week it’s Save Darfur, and the next week it’s Save the Whales. It’s a way of raising consciousness for your kids so they don’t get totally sucked into the materialism and celebrity culture.

-----------------------------------

If you are, as I am, very proud and happy that I have been able to combine work and family and raising my daughter, you have to admit that it’s challenging, and it’s something that each person has to work out for herself within her family. And we don’t have very much support for working women, not enough in my view. We don’t have enough support for maternal leave and the kinds of things that some of the European countries do. So we still make it hard on women to go into the work force and feel that they can be good at work but then doing the most important job, which is raising your children in a responsible and positive way.

-----------------------------------

Like every working mother, there’s guilt involved in deciding how you’re going to balance family and work. I tried to put as much time into taking care of Chelsea myself as I could. Bill and I alternated reading to her every night; we’d try to have a meal together every day, whether breakfast or dinner. Once a week, one of us would pick what we were going to do that night. We might go to a movie or go bowling or play tennis. I remember one time, Chelsea was about 3 and a half, and what she wanted to do was buy a coconut and crack it open, because she’d never seen that before. I think it’s a false trade-off to say quality time versus quantity — you have to have both. So if you have long work hours like I did, how do you get rid of things in your life you don’t need in order to put that extra time into your children?

-----------------------------------

No one gets through life alone. We have to look out for each other and lift each other up. That’s why I’ve spent my career fighting for kids and families.

-----------------------------------

If a country doesn't recognise minority rights and human rights, including women's rights, you will not have the kind of stability and prosperity that is possible.

-----------------------------------

I think the world would be a lot better off if more people were to define themselves in terms of their own standards and values and not what other people said or thought about them

-----------------------------------

Do all the good you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.

-----------------------------------

Let's continue to stand up for those who are vulnerable to being left out or marginalised.

-----------------------------------

I believe that the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century.

-----------------------------------

The worst thing that can happen in a democracy — as well as in an individual's life — is to become cynical about the future and lose hope.

-----------------------------------

Human rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights.

-----------------------------------

I can't stand whining. I can't stand the kind of paralysis that some people fall into because they're not happy with the choices they've made. You live in a time when there are endless choices. ... But you have to work on yourself. ... Do something!

-----------------------------------

There is a sense that things, if you keep positive and optimistic about what can be done, do work out.

-----------------------------------

Dignity does not come from avenging insults, especially from violence that can never be justified. It comes from taking responsibility and advancing our common humanity.

-----------------------------------

I think that if you live long enough, you realise that so much of what happens in life is out of your control, but how you respond to it is in your control. That's what I try to remember.

-----------------------------------

We should remember that just as a positive outlook on life can promote good health, so can everyday acts of kindness.

-----------------------------------

You know, everybody has setbacks in their life, and everybody falls short of whatever goals they might set for themselves. That's part of living and coming to terms with who you are as a person.

-----------------------------------

If you want to know how strong a country's health system is, look at the well beings of its mothers.

-----------------------------------

Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you.
