“The best advice I can give women is don’t be afraid of your own strength - what a woman can endure and deal with is incredible. I have yet to meet a woman who is not strong - all women are strong. Some women are afraid to show it and they hold back because of lack of education, or a husband. But it’s all there in all of them. The biggest barrier to success is not letting your strength out. Just let it out.”—Diane von Furstenberg (via sorakeem)
While I was in the doctor’s office I noticed a document on his wall called ‘What A Surgeon Ought to Be’ written in the 14th century. I’ve changed a word or two but it seems like good advice for our profession.
