Rupi Kaur is a Canadian feminist who fought for her beliefs through beautiful and poignant verses. She gained popularity through sharing her poetry on social media sites, such as Instagram and Twitter. This popularity allowed her to release a self-illustrated book in November 2014. The book is split into 4 different chapters each tackling a different issue. The following are some of her most inspirational and eye-opening quotes and poetry, that can be found in her book and on her social media:

  • ‘what’s the greatest lesson a woman should learn? that since day one. she’s already had everything she needs within herself. it’s the world that convinced her she did not.’    -rupi kaur, milk and honey
  • ‘ i will always be scared i am not beautiful enough for you or if i am beautiful at all i will change what i’m wearing 5 times before i see you wondering which pair of jeans will make my body more tempting to undress tell me is there anything i can do to make you think, her she is so striking she makes my body forget it has knees write it in a letter and address it to all the insecure parts of me my uneven fingers my thin legs your voice alone drives me to tears yours telling me i am beautiful yours telling me i am enough’     – rupi kaur, milk and honey
  • ‘every time you tell your daughter you yell at her out of love you teach her to confuse anger with kindness which seems like a good idea till she grows up to trust guys that hurt her cause they look so much like you’     to dads with daughters – rupi kaur, milk and honey
  • ‘i didn’t leave because i stopped loving you i left cause the longer i stayed the less i loved myself’     – rupi kaur, milk and honey
  • ‘i want to apologize to all the women i have called pretty. before i’ve called them intelligent or brave. i am sorry i made it sound as though something as simple as what you’re born with is the most you have to be proud of when your spirit has crushed mountains from now on i will say things like, you are resilient or, you are extraordinary. not because i don’t think your pretty. but because you are so much more than that’     – rupi kaur, milk and honey
  • ‘if you want to know what type of man he is listen to how he talks about other women cause he could hold you on his lap and be soft honey but if he is bitter to them that man could feed you sugar and douse you in rose water but that still could not make him sweet’     the difference – rupi kaur
  • ‘i do not want to have you to fill the empty parts of me i want to be full on my own i want to be so complete i could light a whole city and then i want to have you cause the two of us combined could set it on fire’     – rupi kaur, milk and honey
