William Mouton Marston, the psychologist responsible for the initial DISC model for emotions and behavior of normal people, is the source of the following quote:
Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength and power, Not wanting to be girls, they don't want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women's strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.
Every crisis offers you extra desired power.
Realize what you really want. It stops you from chasing butterflies and puts you to work digging gold.
Most of us actually stifle enough good impulses during the course of a day to change the current of our lives.
