Liz wasn't sure why, but as the door slammed behind her, her thoughts strayed to Brady. He would have never belittled her career like that.

There's a writer for you," he said. "Knows everything and at the same time he knows nothing."
[narrator]It was my first inkling that he was a writer. And while I like writers - because if you ask a writer anything you usually get an answer - still it belittled him in my eyes. Writers aren't people exactly. Or, if they're any good, they're a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person. It's like actors, who try so pathetically not to look in mirrors. Who lean backward trying - only to see their faces in the reflecting chandeliers.
F Scott Fitzgerald Belittled Sayings By F Scott Fitzgerald: There's a writer for you," he said. "Knows everything and at the same time he
The Northern press, as a whole, did not discourage these claims; a portion of it always magnified rebel success and belittled ours, while another portion, most sincerely earnest in their desire for the preservation of the Union and the overwhelming success of the Federal armies, would nevertheless generally express dissatisfaction with whatever victories were gained because theyUlysses S. Grant Belittled Sayings By Ulysses S. Grant: The Northern press, as a whole, did not discourage these claims; a portion of it
Worship always suffers when man is exalted and God is belittled. If you remove the fact that you're a sinner, if you elevate yourself to a more righteously entitled place, if you exalt yourself and think, "I'm not really all that bad; I'm kind of a good person," then your worship is going to suffer.Matt Chandler Belittled Sayings By Matt Chandler: Worship always suffers when man is exalted and God is belittled. If you remove the

I got him' is nonsense in terms of love relationships, and so is 'I lost him'.

The charge of blasphemy is loaded. The point is to pack a wallop behind the charge that in our worship services God simply doesn't come through for who he is. He is unwittingly belittled. For those who are stunned by the indescribable magnitude of what God has made, not to mention the infinite greatness of the One who made it, the steady diet on Sunday morning of practical how-to's and psychological soothing and relational therapy and tactical planning seem dramatically out of touch with Reality - the God of overwhelming greatness.John Piper Belittled Sayings By John Piper: The charge of blasphemy is loaded. The point is to pack a wallop behind the
One of the most prevalent and undermentioned genres of music is what is known as noise. You can find it all over the world happening in basements, small venues and even some festivals.

It made for something permanent and reliable.Esther Rolle Belittled Sayings By Esther Rolle: My mother grew up with each of her children - whatever your age, that's the
Oh God how subtle he would have to be, how cunning ... No paragraph, no phrase even of the thousands the book must contain could strike a discordant note, be less than fully imagined, an entire novel's worth of thought would have to be expended on each one. His attention had only to lapse for a moment, between preposition and object, colophon and chapter heading, for dead spots to appear like gangrene that would rot the whole. Silkworms didn't work as finely or as patiently as he must, and yet boldness was all, the large stroke, the end contained in and prophesied by the beginning, the stains of his clouds infinitely various but all signifying sunrise. Unity in diversity, all that guff. An enormous weariness flew over him. The trouble with drink, he had long known, wasn't that it started up these large things but that it belittled the awful difficulties of their execution. ("Novelty")John Crowley Belittled Sayings By John Crowley: Oh God how subtle he would have to be, how cunning ... No paragraph, no
Tessie and I lay in our chairs, listening to wax being violently removed. 'Oh my!' cried the large lady. 'Is nothing,' belittled Helga. 'I do it perfect.' 'Oweee!' yelped a bikini-liner. And Helga, taking an oddly femenist stance: 'See what you do for the mens? You suffer. Is not worth it.Jeffrey Eugenides Belittled Sayings By Jeffrey Eugenides: Tessie and I lay in our chairs, listening to wax being violently removed. 'Oh my!'
Once there lived in the ancient city of Afkar two learned men who hated and belittled each other's learning. For one of them denied the existence of the gods and the other was a believer.
One day the two met in the market-place, and amidst their followers they began to dispute and to argue about the existence or the non-existence of the gods. And after hours of contention they parted.
That evening the unbeliever went to the temple and prostrated himself before the altar and prayed the gods to forgive his wayward past.
And the same hour the other learned man, he who had upheld the gods, burned his sacred books. For he had become an unbeliever.
Kahlil Gibran Belittled Sayings By Kahlil Gibran: Once there lived in the ancient city of Afkar two learned men who hated and
Negroes could be sold - actually sold as we sell cattle, with no reference to calves or bulls or recognition of family. It was a nasty business. The white South was properly ashamed of it and continually belittled and almost denied it. But it was a stark and bitter fact.W.E.B. Du Bois Belittled Sayings By W.E.B. Du Bois: Negroes could be sold - actually sold as we sell cattle, with no reference to
Paradoxically, the fear of breaking your neck (translation in corporate terms: losing your job) does not make change impossible. It's a much more insidious kind of fear that interferes with change: the fear of mockery. If you want to make change in your organization utterly impossible, try mocking people as they struggle with the new, unfamiliar ways you have just urged upon them. There is no surer way to stop essential change dead. The safety that is required for essential change is a sure sense that no one will be mocked, demeaned, or belittled while struggling to achieve renewed mastery.Tom DeMarco Belittled Sayings By Tom DeMarco: Paradoxically, the fear of breaking your neck (translation in corporate terms: losing your job) does
People say, 'Gee, you don't really do political music.' Well, I sing a lot of songs about how men and women and lovers treat each other, and none of us want to be talked down to or belittled or ignored or disrespected ... So I'm proud to be a feminist.Bonnie Raitt Belittled Sayings By Bonnie Raitt: People say, 'Gee, you don't really do political music.' Well, I sing a lot of

Sorensen: In much of today's popular culture, the virtues of forgiveness and kindness are belittled, while
I know a lot of great musicians that don't know they're even great, because mangers try and make them feel belittled like they're not worth a crap.Jim "Dandy" Mangrum Belittled Sayings By Jim
We have, alas, belittled the cross, imagining it merely as a mechanism for getting us off the hook of our own petty naughtiness or as an example of some general benevolent truth. It is much, much more. It is the moment when the story of Israel reaches its climax; the moment when, at last, the watchmen on Jerusalem's walls see their God coming in his kingdom; the moment when the people of God are renewed so as to be, at last, the royal priesthood who will take over the world not with the love of power but with the power of love; theN. T. Wright Belittled Sayings By N. T. Wright: We have, alas, belittled the cross, imagining it merely as a mechanism for getting us

An education system is best belittled when the so-called educated gets hired by a company that's owned by a so-called dropout.Mokokoma Mokhonoana Belittled Sayings By Mokokoma Mokhonoana: An education system is best belittled when the so-called educated gets hired by a company
Oh gods ... oh gods ... I had hurt him ... so many times, I had hurt him. By trying to hurt myself, I had hurt him. By trying to push him away, I had hurt him. Every time I opened my mouth and belittled myself with my "turns of rough poetry", I had sliced his heart as fine as my wrists. I did not know why he loved me as he did. I might never know. But as I stood there and held him, my back nagging at me and my leg screaming in protest, I realized that the least I could do was welcome his love with an open heart. And part of doing that was loving myself enough to want to live.Amy Lane Belittled Sayings By Amy Lane: Oh gods ... oh gods ... I had hurt him ... so many times, I
Some find it difficult to withstand the mocking and unsavory remarks of foolish ones who ridicule chastity, honesty, and obedience to God's commands. But the world has ever belittled adherence to principle. When Noah was instructed to build an ark, the foolish populace looked at the cloudless sky, then scoffed and jeered - until the rain came.Thomas S. Monson Belittled Sayings By Thomas S. Monson: Some find it difficult to withstand the mocking and unsavory remarks of foolish ones who
If woman alone had suffered under these mistaken traditions [of women's subordination], if she could have borne the evil by herself, it would have been less pitiful, but her brother man, in the laws he created and ignorantly worshipped, has suffered with her. He has lost her highest help; he has crippled the intelligence he needed; he has belittled the very source of his own being and dwarfed the image of his Maker.Clara Barton Belittled Sayings By Clara Barton: If woman alone had suffered under these mistaken traditions [of women's subordination], if she could
I couldn't think of anyone I'd ever felt sorry for. There were plenty of kids I was envious of. There were others I achingly admired, but that might simply be another form of jealousy. Then there were those I feared, dreaded. And the worst of them, the man who shamed me. I could see my father's angry features looming over my mother. I could clearly picture her beside him in his truck, cowering against the door while he belittled and assaulted her.
I guess I did know someone I felt sorry for.
Richelle E. Goodrich Belittled Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: I couldn't think of anyone I'd ever felt sorry for. There were plenty of kids
Okay, bye, ladies!" Susan said, waving to Emma and me as we left her house. "Remember, in two weeks make sure you've read Fifty Shades of Grey! And bring notes!" I waved goodbye to everyone. By the end of the night, we hadn't spoken one word about Little Women, but I felt extremely belittled by these women.Brittainy C. Cherry Belittled Sayings By Brittainy C. Cherry: Okay, bye, ladies!" Susan said, waving to Emma and me as we left her house.
Since time immemorial wise people have been saying that all comparisons are odious. When we compare, we set up a winner-loser dynamic. If my crisis is greater than yours, then yours is belittled and insignificant. I say that's nonsense. Each crisis has its own power, its own unique reality.Tavis Smiley Belittled Sayings By Tavis Smiley: Since time immemorial wise people have been saying that all comparisons are odious. When we

As I speak for many in the budding new missional church world I have to share that I no longer judge the faithful fervent work of so many pastors who have pastored well but who struggle to find their place in this new world. They deserve to be honored instead of belittled. Without their legacy we would have nothing to build upon.Hugh Halter & Matt Smay Belittled Sayings By Hugh Halter & Matt Smay: As I speak for many in the budding new missional church world I have to
Many have belittled Joseph Smith, but those who have will be forgotten in the remains of Mother Earth, and the odor of their infamy will ever be with them, but honor, majesty, and fidelity to God, exemplified by Joseph Smith and attached to his name, will never die.George Albert Smith Belittled Sayings By George Albert Smith: Many have belittled Joseph Smith, but those who have will be forgotten in the remains
If you're going to make work and you're going to write and you're going to put yourself out there and perform, you will be belittled, you will be insulted, you will be called a standard collection of names, you will be accused, and you just have to stand there and continue to work and find a way to not let those things poison you.Amanda Palmer Belittled Sayings By Amanda Palmer: If you're going to make work and you're going to write and you're going to

Magistra, if you save my student, I don't care a snap what you say about my heart.

Blake Charlton Belittled Sayings By Blake Charlton: Magistra, if you save my student, I don't care a snap what you say about
Only those beneath me can envy or hate me. I have never been envied nor hated; I am above no one. Only those above me can praise or belittle me.

With her parents modeling such brutal favoritism, Sallie joined right in. She constantly belittled Tina and joined in with the taunts of the bullies on the bus. When an outsider sees a family member participating in abuse of another family member, the outsider quickly realizes it is okay to do the same. No one cared about this girl, not even her sister or parents, and Diane and I would sometimes join in on the teasing and taunts.Kat Spencer Belittled Sayings By Kat Spencer: With her parents modeling such brutal favoritism, Sallie joined right in. She constantly belittled Tina
When John Quincy Adams in the Netherlands was placed with elementary students and belittled because he did not speak Dutch, either the author or John Adams accuses school authorities of "littleness of soul".Paul C. Nagel Belittled Sayings By Paul C. Nagel: When John Quincy Adams in the Netherlands was placed with elementary students and belittled because
Women are often belittled for trying to resurrect these men and bring them back to life and to love. They are in a world that would be even more alienated and violent if caring women did not do the work of teaching men who have lost touch with themselves how to love again. This labor of love is futile only when the men in question refuse to awaken, refuse growth. At this point it is a gesture of self-love for women to break their commitment and move on.Bell Hooks Belittled Sayings By Bell Hooks: Women are often belittled for trying to resurrect these men and bring them back to
Perhaps I may record here my protest against the efforts, so often made, to shield children and young people from all that has to do with death and sorrow, to give them a good time at all hazards on the assumption that the ills of life will come soon enough. Young people themselves often resent this attitude on the part of their elders; they feel set aside and belittled as if they were denied the common human experiences.Jane Addams Belittled Sayings By Jane Addams: Perhaps I may record here my protest against the efforts, so often made, to shield
In the history of science it happens not infrequently that a reductionist approach leads to a spectacular success. Frequently the understanding of a complicated system as a whole is impossible without an understanding of its component parts. And sometimes the understanding of a whole field of science is suddenly advanced by the discover of a single basic equation. Thus it happened that the Schrodinger equation in 1926 and the Dirac equation in 1927 brought a miraculous order into the previously mysterious processes of atomic physics. The equations of Erwin Schrodinger and Paul Dirac were triumphs of reductionism. Bewildering complexities of chemistry and physics were reduced to two lines of algebraic symbols. These triumphs were in Oppenheimer's mind when he belittled his own discovery of black holes. Compared with the abstract beauty and simplicity of the Dirac equation, the black hole solution seemed to him ugly, complicated, and lacking in fundamental significance.Freeman Dyson Belittled Sayings By Freeman Dyson: In the history of science it happens not infrequently that a reductionist approach leads to
Nobody cares for getting belittled by a person you've had sex with. A person you've licked all over. Nobody wants to sit there and get run down too far by somebody who gives them a hard-on.Daniel Woodrell Belittled Sayings By Daniel Woodrell: Nobody cares for getting belittled by a person you've had sex with. A person you've

Abuse manipulates and twists a child's natural sense of trust and love. Her innocent feelings are belittled or mocked and she learns to ignore her feelings. She can't afford to feel the full range of feelings in her body while she's being abused - pain, outrage, hate, vengeance, confusion, arousal. So she short-circuits them and goes numb. For many children, any expression of feelings, even a single tear, is cause for more severe abuse. Again, the only recourse is to shut down. Feelings go underground.Laura Davis Belittled Sayings By Laura Davis: Abuse manipulates and twists a child's natural sense of trust and love. Her innocent feelings

What's the most significant barrier to creativity and innovation?

Kevin thought about it for a
Men can be men and still get excited about other men kicking a ball around and they're never mocked, whereas it's easy for women to take mocking on board, to be belittled. Because we're used to it.Marian Keyes Belittled Sayings By Marian Keyes: Men can be men and still get excited about other men kicking a ball around
In our rather stupid time, hunting is belittled and misunderstood, many refusing to see it for the vital vacation from the human condition that it is, or to acknowledge that the hunter does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, he kills in order to have hunted.Jose Ortega Y Gasset Belittled Sayings By Jose Ortega Y Gasset: In our rather stupid time, hunting is belittled and misunderstood, many refusing to see it
We need to develop courage, and we need to develop it in small ways first ... You develop a little courage, so that if you decide, I will not stay in rooms where women are belittled; I will not stay in company where races, no matter who they are, are belittled; I will not take it; I will not sit around and accept dehumanising other human beings: - if you decide to do that in small ways, and you continue to do it - finally you realize you've got so much courage. Imagine it - you've got so much courage that people want to be around you. They get a feeling that they will be protected in your company.Maya Angelou Belittled Sayings By Maya Angelou: We need to develop courage, and we need to develop it in small ways first
I think it is worse to be poor in mind than in purse, to be stunted and belittled in soul, made a coward, made a liar, made mean and slavish, accustomed to fawn and prevaricate, and "manage" by base arts a husband or a father,
I think this is worse than to be kicked with hobnailed shoes.
Frances Power Cobbe Belittled Sayings By Frances Power Cobbe: I think it is worse to be poor in mind than in purse, to be
