“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat, or a prostitute.” ~Rebecca West

#BeQuotable…Day 10….Quote From a Headstrong Female @amandapalmer

“My number one goal is to never feel like I’m strictly defining myself. The minute I feel like I’m doing that as anything-as theatrical, as feminist, as songwriter-I feel like the minute I name it, I’m stuck in a box.” ~Amanda Palmer

In a world and an industry that seems to always thirst for originality, Amanda Palmer NEVER disappoints. I can relate to her, as many of us can, because of her refusal to be anything other than her true self.  The quest for today was to choose a quote from a headstrong female…Amanda Palmer was my initial choice. The word “headstrong” can mean obstinate. Amanda Palmer is naturally, and inspiringly so.

If you don’t know who Amanda Palmer is, I can tell you all sorts of things about her. I can tell you about her music, her exploits, her writing, ect. but to get a feel for who she really is, you should check out her blog, her Facebook page (like her page, she posts quite often and it’s always “good stuff”), her TED talk and her book (out November 11).

…and as an added bonus, check out her Ice Challenge Video…(and YouTube Channel)…You MUST check out An Evening With Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman
