Annie Oakley Quotes

“Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally you’ll hit the bull’s-eye of success.”

“For me, sitting still is harder than any kind of work.”

“My mother and sisters thought my prowess with the gun was just a little tomboyish”

“I would like to see every woman know how to handle [firearms] as naturally as they know how to handle babies.”

“My mother…was perfectly horrified when I began shooting and tried to keep me in school, but I would run away and go quail shooting in the woods or trim my dresses with wreaths of wildflowers.”

“A crowned queen was never treated with more reverence than I was by those whole-souled western boys…And for seventeen long years I was just their little sister, sharing both their news of joy and sorrow from home.”

“God intended women to be outside as well as men, and they do not know what they are missing when they stay cooped up in the house.”

“I am, indeed, very grateful for your many kind words in my obituary. How such a report started I do not know. I am thankful to say I am in the best of health.”

“After traveling through fourteen foreign countries and appearing before all the royalty and nobility I have only one wish today. That is that when my eyes are closed in death that they will bury me back in that quiet little farm land where I was born.”

    Hi Savannah – I’m a web developer so I build lots of sites for other people, but this one is the only one I manage myself. There are literally over 1,300 posts on here on all sorts of topics. And of course, there is a shop and I have a newsletter. Girls Can’t WHAT? is on Facebook, too. I’m glad you like Girls Can’t WHAT?!


  1. […] “Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not… Why can women not have the same hobbies as men without saying they are not a woman? Today there seems to always be a double standard when two things are involved: guns and women. This needs to be cleared up right now. Whether a male or female handles a gun the outcome is no different. Guns can be a woman’s hobby because they can use them for sport/passion, couples shooting together, and seriousness/history. […]
