I am unashamed to say that I binge-watched all six and a half seasons of "Suits" in less than three weeks while also going to school and juggling sports and activities. Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep those three weeks.
But the show was so addictive that I just couldn't stop watching.
One of the greatest aspects of the show is the incredibly diverse pool of characters, and from this come the strong female characters on the show. So, without any more introduction, here are 19 quotes from the stellar women of "Suits."
1. "I'm sorry I don't have a photographic memory but my brain is too busy being awesome." - Donna Paulsen
I feel like everyone that's not Mike Ross and doesn't have a photographic memory can relate.
2. "I can, because I do." - Jessica Pearson
It's really easy to get caught up in the banter between Harvey and Jessica, but Jessica is probably the most bad ass character on the show. Cause you know, her name's "on the damn door."
3. "I'm Donna. I know everything." - Donna Paulsen
Who doesn't love a funny, confident character, who, at the end of the day, would do anything to protect the people she loves?
4. "I am not the goody-goody you think I am." - Rachel Zane
And while Rachel definitely is a lot of very good things, she's definitely not a "goody-goody."
5. "You're not calling shots here. I am." - Jessica Pearson
@ every jerk who tries to take over and destroy her firm.
6. "I am pretty much a legal superhero." Rachel Zane
@ everyone who doubts her paralegal skills.
7. "I am not apologizing for who I am." - Donna Paulsen
8. "Good, you've hit on me. We can get it out of the way that I'm not interested." - Rachel Zane
9. "I'm not going to cower in some corner and try to convince them that I'm friendly. I'm gonna kick some ass and remind them that I'm fierce." - Jessica Pearson
10. "Took a while to Feng Shui the evil out." - Donna Paulsen
11. "Things will turn out the way they are supposed to." - Donna Paulsen
Something everyone anxious about the future definitely needs to hear.

1 3. "I will slap the taste out of your mouth." - Jessica Pearson
Just don't mess with Jessica.
14. "I'm not one to back away from a fight." - Rachel Zane
15. "Which is why God made Chunky Monkey. It has chocolate AND bananas. Bananas are part of a healthy breakfast. And who cares about bananas? It has chocolate. You caught me... I don't even eat the bananas." - Donna Paulsen
Because let's be honest this is all of us.
16. "You always respond to strength, not weakness." - Scottie
Her time on the show may have been short, but we definitely learned a thing or two about Harvey through Dana Schott.
17. "I don't want to go to Law School. I want to go to Harvard." - Rachel Zane
Rachel knows what she wants and she's not afraid to work for it.
18. "Having a vagina does not stop me from believing that my balls are bigger than yours." - Jessica Pearson
19. "There's a time to be gentle and there's a time to be firm." - Donna Paulsen
Every "Suits" character has something different to offer to the show, and the diversity provides something for everyone to enjoy. The women of the show, while fictional, are definitely representative of role models for girls everywhere.
