Confidence Level

Famous quotes containing the words confidence and/or level:

    The notion of a universality of human experience is a confidence trick and the notion of a universality of female experience is a clever confidence trick.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    ... when you do get a job everybody says, “Well, they wanted a black woman,” which necessarily puts you on a level where you have to prove yourself above being a woman and being black.... Now, I would say, in certain situations, it helped me simply because I was mildly attractive, not because I was black or a woman. That gets you more mileage than anything else.... God help you if you’re not an attractive woman.
    Theresa Brown (b. 1957)
