Get inspired by Pawnee's greatest leader with these 5 girl power quotes.
1. "We have to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third."
Leslie always makes time for what she cares about. A hallmark of girl power is choosing for yourself! So if you love waffles, make waffles a priority, but make sure it's in check with your other priorities too.
2. "Winning is every girl's dream. But it's my destiny. And my dream."
Knope never gives up on things she sets her mind too. We all should set high goals for ourselves, especially us ladies.
3. "I guess some people object to powerful depictions of awesome ladies."
Don't let the haters get you down, Leslie doesn't. You can't control other people's opinions, so just roll with it and do your thing.
4. "I stand behind my decision to avoid salad and other disgusting things."
Make your own choices despite media and societal implications. If you think salad is gross, don't eat it. Make your own path and don't let other people shape your life for it.
5. "I am big enough to admit that I am often inspired by myself."
Have faith in yourself, accept and love your accomplishments, because at the end of the day all the power lies in you, because you are a beautiful sunfish, or whatever Leslie would call you.
