#WednesdayWisdom: Quotable Women in Music

By Amy Hanna, Production Coordinator

We’ve reached the middle of another week, and if yours has been anything like our team’s, you’re desperately seeking Friday. To help cure those burnout blues, we’ve compiled some nuggets of wisdom from some of our favorite women in music to keep us motivated to keep pressing forward through the rest of the week. We encourage you to share, retweet, and send this post off to anyone you think could use an extra dose of #WednesdayWisdom. Enjoy!


“A great work of art is made out of a combination of obedience and liberty.”

– Nadia Boulanger


“If something great happens, I celebrate it for about—I’m not even kidding—a minute and a half. Then I start thinking about the next step.”

Ariana Grande


“I feel grateful for what I have. But that’s not going to stop me from saying what I think.”

Lily Allen


“To the doubters and naysayers and everyone who gave me hell and said I could not, that I would not or I must not – your resistance made me stronger, made me push harder, made me the fighter that I am today. It made me the woman that I am today. So thank you.”



“If you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner.”



“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

– Ella Fitzgerald


“I don’t try to sound like anyone but me anymore. If something is out of my element, I try to avoid it.”

Norah Jones
