Let’s examine this:

Miss is a word for a woman that has not been married.

Mrs. is an abbreviation of the word Mistress, used as a title for a woman that is married or widowed.

Ms. is a title used for a woman whose marital status is unknown or irrelevant (as in business).

The letters Ms. are not an abbreviation of a word, they are an amalgamation drawn from the letters of Miss and Mrs.

On the other hand, a man is just a mister (Mr.)

You see, men don’t have to determine their sexual availability like women.

Is consumerism killing our creativity? 
“I was thinking recently about what my biggest distractions were – the things keeping me from pushing my creative projects forward. As I scanned through my daily activities, I found that the most insidious distraction was, in fact, things. More specifically, the wanting, hunting, and getting of things — whether they be tangible (a new computer) or intangible (information).”

“If you’re afraid of life, if you’re afraid of your own power, (…) then you’ll always give somebody the reins… Somebody else will be making the decisions about the direction of your life and things that you do. But if you have self-esteem and self approval, then the last thing you want is to yield to somebody else’s power.

If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.
—Leo Tolstoy; Essays, Letters and Miscellanies
The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.
—Chuck Close

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
