By    |   Thursday, 16 Apr 2015 01:27 PM

Annie Oakley, born Phoebe Anne Mosey in 1860, was best known for her sharpshooting skills in the popular shooting exhibition, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Over time, she has quietly inspired many girls with guns to become equally as efficient in their shooting skills.

Here are seven of her most popular quotes:

1. "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."

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

3. "Aim at a high mark and you'll hit it. No, not the first time, nor the second time. Maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect."

4. "There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn't bother to change while there are women like that around."

5. "For me, sitting still is harder than any kind of work."

6. "My mother and sisters thought my prowess with the gun was just a little tomboyish."

7. "Men are the enemies of women. Promising sublime intimacy, unequalled passion, amazing security and grace, they nevertheless exploit and injure in a myriad subtle ways. Without men the world would be a better place: softer, kinder, more loving; calmer, quieter, more humane."
