“True equality is to respect our differences…we want equality but we don’t want to sacrifice who we are. We want authenticity.”

“We all want to be loved. But you have to know what buttons to push to love.”

“Under stress women want to connect, men want to disconnect.”

“Don’t try to connect to him by asking what he’s thinking or feeling, wanting or wishing – let him know what you’re thinking or feeling, wanting or wishing.”

“Men do not bond by talking to women. They bond by hearing, seeing, feeling and connecting with them.”

“Stop asking questions from a place of insecurity.”

“Women have to give themselves permission to do things they love to do.”

“Passion comes from nurturing the masculine and feminine inside each one of us.”

“Finding happiness without a man is a great step to finding happiness with a man.”

“Technology will never just be technology. We will wake up and we will come back to a more natural living as a balance. And it’s the women that will lead us there.”

“As the women become more grounded, men who love those women will find the ground and find it within themselves as well.”
