    1. he women in Schreiber’s study recovered fully fromdepression only after they realized that they did not need tobe totally capable, always “strong,” while the Black West-Indian Canadian women in this study continued to experiencedepression periodically, at the same time, managing it by beingstrong

      SO the women who realized that they didn't need to be strong were able to fully recover from depression

      the women who manage the depression by being strong still experienced this periodically- maybe even more so.

      Sarah was trying to manage by being strong- so strong that she didn't need her father "quote from landlady" but in her attempt to be strong she was losing her mind, will to live, and hair

    2. When comparing themselves to women ofthe dominant culture, they thought the sentimental order(Glaser & Strauss, 1971) or cultural right way of doing thingswas to be stronger

      because sarah couldn't be stronger this made her hair fall out. not necesarily the cause but its a factor. her lack of blackness devoids her of her "strength". "the cultural way of doing things was to be stronger" Sarah didn't have that mindset to be stronger. furthermore, neither did the queen. She is the dominant culture and she seem's to be one of the dominant "selves" in sarah.

      Sarah's loss of crown is because she was dwelling on her life as a caucasion

    1. hypertension, heart disease, stomach ills,respiratory difficulties, and depressive episodes, often referred to as ner-vous breakdowns

      does this :internalization" process also contribute to the depressive episodes?

      In order to maintain their image of a strong black woman, black women mask those behaviors which may make them seem weak. aka "internalizing" them.

      this now makes more sinse as to why her initial breakdown is in her apartment in the first place. she only becomes other parts of herselves when she's alone.

    2. the strength discourse gathers its authority not from empirical inves-tigation but from contrasting Black women to normatively feminine, white,middle-class women.

      This can fit with her hair being symbolized as her strength. because her hair is quite literally an exact opposite of her other very white-passing demeaner. She states thats the one prominent thing of her african american heritage. When she loses that, she loses her strength to go on.

    3. strength is a nat-ural quality of Black women and a litmus test for their womanhood,

      Another reason why hair is a good symbolism for strength: both kinky curly hair and strength are "natural qualities" to being a black woman.

      As said, when she begins to lack that she doesn't feel as though she deserves to even live.

    1. I agree that diversity is necessary, but only useful when paired with acceptance. As Ecks says, when it is paired with positivity it creates pluralism and that moves society steps forward, but when it remains alone it causes conflict. This is extremely true in today's America with its lack of acceptance and trust in the political and religious sense, and in addition to more diversity that is making the country less united and weaker to countries with no religious freedoms.

    1. Woolf calls on women writers to select from the language of men what they can use and recombine its elements to create a discourse more congenial and useful to women, as she tried to do in her own fiction and non-fiction work.

      I freaking love this sentence. Literally and figuratively, take the strength of your opponent and turn it into your own weapon.

    1. Rocks can only handle so much elastic distortion before permanent deformation, ( failure occurs). but it takes thousands of MPa to break . The theoretical strength of a rock is in the 1000's of MPa but the actual tensile strength is in the 10's of MPa. This came form that the rock was assumed that the atorms were all evenly placed and spaced but there are flaws in the system that impact the elasticity of the object. we couldn't break aperfect bond but thankfully rocks aren't perfect

    1. I am now viewing the "Workman's Sandwich" and wondering what it would take humankind to provide the WorkWOMAN's Sandwich... Ladies on the job deserve just as much roast beef as any male laborer. If I may, I'd like to propose an ideal sandwich: it would include the contents of; Cheese churned from the breast milk of strong, independent mothers, Turkey of the female farmer's land, and mustard from a female CEO-owned grocery store on Wall Street.

    1. In my experience, the best way to lift weights for runners is to use a heavy weight that is enough to push your limits after 5 repetitions

      Agrees with the advice at http://victorsrunningblog.com/2014/04/15/why-distance-runners-should-lift-heavy/ which also has more references and a better explanation.

    1. Acquaintances, as compared to close friends, are more prone to move in different circles than oneself. Those to whom one is closest are likely to have the greatest overlap in contact with those one already knows, so that the information to which they are privy is likely to be much the same as that which one already has

      Love this. Weak ties foster diversity of people and thought in one's network.

    1. But there are some things concerning this point that very naturally deceive the unskilful; for division, though it is of great consequence in pleadings, diminishes the appearance of strength; what is rough is imagined more bulky than what is polished; and objects when scattered are thought more numerous than when they are ranged in order.
