Say 'Hello, Sunshine' to These Encouraging Reese Witherspoon Quotes

We adore Reese Witherspoon to no end.

Seriously, we would go to the ends of the earth to prove it and protect this precious woman. She means everything to us and more. That probably is coming off as pretty aggressive, but it's the cold, hard truth.

Apart from being involved in some of the most pivotal movies of our youth, she's an all-around incredible human being who deserves more credit than she gets. Give her all the awards, Academy!

What we really love about Reese is her uncanny ability to always know just what to say during our time of need. While we can't text her for a little pep talk (at least, not yet), we can turn to her encouraging words on the internet.

We've rounded up the most empowering Reese Witherspoon quotes right here for when we all need some advice. Sift through them below!
