Clarissa Pinkola Estés – A woman who has spent time in ugly duckling status

Share this quote:
Clarissa Pinkola EstesThere is probably no better or more reliable measure of whether a woman has spent time in ugly duckling status at some point or all throughout her life than her inability to digest a sincere compliment. Although it could be a matter of modesty, or could be attributed to shyness- although too many serious wounds are carelessly written off as “nothing but shyness” – more often a compliment is stuttered around about because it sets up an automatic and unpleasant dialogue in the woman’s mind.

Clarissa Pinkola Estés   (1945-)

Alfred Hitchcock – I’ve never been very keen on. . .

Share this quote:
Alfred HitchcockI’ve never been very keen on women who hang their sex round their neck like baubles. I think it should be discovered. It’s more interesting to discover the sex in a woman than it is to have it thrown at you, like a Marilyn Monroe or those types. To me they are rather vulgar and obvious.
