in short – if you love someone and thinks he/she is the one, travel around the world together and go to far away places for a long time, and if you still want to be together after the trip, you can marry that person.

Quotes from feminists

Jane Austen
“But I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days.” – Persuasion

 

Margaret Atwood
“We still think of a powerful man as a born leader and a powerful woman as an anomaly.”

 

Ursula Le Guin
“We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.” – a commencement address at Bryn Mawr College

 

J.K. Rowling
“Very early on in writing the series, I remember a female journalist saying to me that Mrs Weasley, ‘Well, you know, she’s just a mother.’ And I was absolutely incensed by that comment. Now, I consider myself to be a feminist, and I’d always wanted to show that just because a woman has made a choice, a free choice to say, ‘Well, I’m going to raise my family and that’s going to be my choice. I may go back to a career, I may have a career part time, but that’s my choice.’ Doesn’t mean that that’s all she can do. And as we proved there in that little battle, Molly Weasley comes out and proves herself the equal of any warrior on that battlefield.” – J.K. Rowling and the Women of Harry Potter

 

Virginia Woolf
“As long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking.” – Orlando

 

Charlotte Brontë
“If men could see us as we really are, they would be a little amazed; but the cleverest, the acutest men are often under an illusion about women: they do not read them in a true light: they misapprehend them, both for good and evil: their good woman is a queer thing, half doll, half angel; their bad woman almost always a fiend.” – Shirley

 

Adrienne Rich
“Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you; it means learning to respect and use your own brains and instincts; hence, grappling with hard work.” – “Claiming an Education”

 

Simone de Beauvoir
“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.”

 

Mary Wollstonecraft
“It is vain to expect virtue from women till they are in some degree independent of men.” – A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

 

Toni Morrison
“I don’t think a female running a house is a problem, a broken family. It’s perceived as one because of the notion that a head is a man.” – Conversations with Toni Morrison

 

Zadie Smith
“It was in the air, or so it seemed to Kiki, this hatred of women and their bodies– it seeped in with every draught in the house; people brought it home on their shoes, they breathed it in off their newspapers. There was no way to control it.” – On Beauty

 

Leslie Jamison 
“We don’t want to be wounds (“No, you’re the wound!”) but we should be allowed to have them, to speak about having them, to be something more than just another girl who has one. We should be able to do these things without failing the feminism of our mothers, and we should be able to represent women who hurt without walking backward into a voyeuristic rehashing of the old cultural models.” – “Grand Unified Theory of Female Pain”

 

Claire Messud
“We live in a culture that wants to put a redemptive face on everything, so anger doesn’t sit well with any of us. But I think women’s anger sits less well than anything else. Women’s anger is very scary to people, and to no one more than to other women, who think my goodness, if I let the lid off, where would we be?” – an interview with NPR

Summary:

Negative emotions people may have suffered as young adults can have a lasting grip on their couple relationships, well into middle age, research demonstrates. The study followed 341 people for 25 years, and found that negative emotions they may have suffered as young adults can have a lasting grip on their couple relationships, well into middle age. The fact that depression and anger experienced during the teen years clung to people, even through major life events such as child-rearing, marriages and careers was surprising, researchers note.

Amateurs versus Professionals | The Big Picture

Amateurs versus Professionals | The Big Picture.

 

AMATEURS

 

Have tons of ideas, are excited about all of them and see none to fruition.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Have tons of ideas, pick one and do their best to make it happen.

 

AMATEURS

 

Think they can do everything.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Know it’s almost impossible to achieve one thing.

 

AMATEURS

 

Think they know everything.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Are always learning.

 

AMATEURS

 

Start with no preparation.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Do research, they want to know where the bodies are buried, what the landscape holds. Better to take all these factors into account before you start, because trying to adjust on the fly is so much more difficult, it wastes time and energy and it’s hard to put a fourth wheel on a car you designed with three.

 

AMATEURS

 

Don’t finish.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Are all about execution. Sure, they occasionally abandon a project when they see further effort is fruitless, but the mark of a pro is someone who begins and ends. If you notice someone can’t complete a task, run from them!

 

AMATEURS

 

Are worried about image.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Let their work do the talking.

 

AMATEURS

 

Demonstrate insecurity.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Are extremely confident.

 

AMATEURS

 

Can only see what’s in front of them.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Are all about the big picture.

 

AMATEURS

 

Hold those above them in contempt.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Hold no one in contempt, but they haven’t got much time for losers. If you’re an amateur trying to graduate to professional status and you have the good fortune to encounter a pro, DON’T WASTE THEIR TIME! Give just one or two compliments and ask your question. But most amateurs are so busy being sycophants the professional tunes out, or goes on at such length that the professional excuses himself.

 

AMATEURS

 

Have no idea what dues are.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Have paid their dues, and are still paying them.

 

AMATEURS

 

Believe in instant success.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Know anything worth accomplishing takes a long time, and what might look like overnight success is rarely such.

 

AMATEURS

 

Boast.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Never slap their own backs, and are oftentimes uncomfortable with others slapping their backs.

 

AMATEURS

 

Get nervous.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

May be anxious, but they’ve performed the task so many times they let instinct take over, they go on their experience, nervousness never comes into the equation.

 

AMATEURS

 

Are looking for their one big break.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Know that life is about a series of breaks.

 

AMATEURS

 

Are afraid to fail.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Don’t like to fail, but when they do they pick themselves up, dust themselves off and get back in the game.

 

AMATEURS

 

Interrupt.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Listen.

 

AMATEURS

 

Demonstrate their bile, they get frustrated or angry and it’s easy to see.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Are cool, calm and collected. You may read about the crazy owner/operator/entrepreneur, but if they’re truly nuts, they don’t last, their board replaces them, and the truth is most are not that nuts, it just makes a better story in the press to portray them as such.

 

AMATEURS

 

Bristle.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Show empathy.

 

AMATEURS

 

Are always telling you how busy they are and how hard they’re working.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Show up and stay as long as it’s interesting and profitable, bitching gains them nothing, so they don’t.

 

AMATEURS

 

Believe what people say.

 

PROFESSIONALS

 

Believe what people do.
