So take heart, my dears. Enjoy your moments of perceived insanity. And be secure in the knowledge that the moment you have moved on, they'll call wondering where you've been. But by then, it's too late. Smile as they fall in wake of your charms. Now the student has become the master. You have the power. And they can't wait to be your beloved subject. Walk away with total peace. You have just cracked tha whip!

"The Scorn'd Woman… where did she come from? Is she really from hell?” This is a question that has plagued minds for years.
Infamously known, the proverb concerning the scorn'd woman, over the years has been link to William Shakespeare and in some minds even the Bible. But the truth is these words were taken from the play The Mourning Bride, written by the early author William Congreve in (1697)
The Mourning Bride is your usual king-orders-beheading-of-enemy-prince-upon-finding-he-is-secretly-married-to-king's-daughter-but-gets-it-himself-in-a-case-of-mistaken-identity-resulting-in-another-mistaken-identity-with-subsequent-suicide-by-poisoning-revolution-and-reunion-of-happy-lovers tragedy. (Mostly eloquently summarized by Cecil Adams)
The full quote reads;
"Heav'n has no rage like love to hatred turn'd Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn'd."
Meaning: A woman rejected in love can be very angry and dangerous.
Note: hell (noun): (according to various religions) a place of suffering where bad people go after death | hath (verb): [old English] has | fury (noun): violent anger; (Fury) in Greek mythology a female spirit of punishment | scorn (verb): to reject contemptuously Provided By: http://www.englishclub.com
Law 1- Never Outshine the Master
Always make those above you feel comfortably superior. In your desire to please or impress them, do not go too far in displaying your talents or you might accomplish the opposite – inspire fear and insecurity. Make your masters appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power.
Law 2- Never put too Much Trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies
Be wary of friends-they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.
Law 3-Conceal your Intentions
Keep people off-balance and in the dark by never revealing the purpose behind your actions. If they have no clue what you are up to, they cannot prepare a defense. Guide them far enough down the wrong path, envelope them in enough smoke, and by the time they realize your intentions, it will be too late.
Law 4-Always Say Less than Necessary
When you are trying to impress people with words, the more you say, the more common you appear, and the less in control. Even if you are saying something banal, it will seem original if you make it vague, open-ended, and sphinxlike. Powerful people impress and intimidate by saying less. The more you say, the more likely you are to say something foolish.
QUIZ: Coming Soon... BE PREPARED!!
Okay... a while ago I was joking about starting a blog. (And really it was a joke) However, after speaking to people in my recent journeys and on Twitter, I have decided to just do it. Damn it!
The hardest part of writing a blog is actually coming up with a concept that you can stick to. So after a lot of soul searching I realized that a “woman scorn'd” is GREAT because if you are anything like me (or even if you're not), you CAN find strength, wisdom, perseverance and opportunities through events, obstacles or pitfalls that come your way.
The mission of this blog is to help people (especially women) do just that through empowering the scorn'd with resources, advice, laughter and in some cases, tough love. (Cuz ummm… sum of ya’ll on Twitter are killing your followers with the emo twits!!!! LOL)
Well, readers, I like to keep the introduction short and sweet because I think you will get more out of the things to come than reading a long-ass drawn out intro to a Blog.
