“Men often think they deserve a sticker for treating women like people.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“He sad, "I'm going to use that in something one day." And he wrote it down on a napkin and put it in his back pocket. I thought to myself, "What the hell makes you think I'm not going to use it in something once day?" But, of course, there it was in his next movie. That's how it was back then. I was just supposed to be the inspiration for some man's great idea.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six

Bessel van der Kolk
“Long after the actual event has passed, the brain may keep sending signals to the body to escape a threat that no longer exists.”
Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

Tracey Garvis Graves
“I want to work at a library someday," I said. "I want to spend every waking day of my adult life surrounded by books.”
Tracey Garvis Graves, The Girl He Used to Know

Liz Fosslien
“Success depends on psychological safety. At Google, members of teams with high levels of psychological safety were less likely to leave their jobs, brought in more revenue, and were rated effective twice as often by executives. MIT researchers who studied team performance came to the same conclusion: simply grouping smart people together doesn’t guarantee a smart team. Online and off, the best teams discuss ideas frequently, do not let one person dominate the conversation, and are sensitive to one another’s feelings.”
Liz Fosslien, No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work
