I did end up finishing this book after all. Funny, right after I passed the halfway point the characters stopped being so annoying to me--they seemed a little softer, not so haughty. It really is a beautiful story in many ways. The way the slaves wer ...more

Kind of a slow start to this one but it turns out to be a compelling story of identity theft. It creeped me out a bit that someone can do so much damage with just some little bits of key information about a person. Some parts were a little cheesy, bu ...more

Gotta love Gail's sassy, spitfire wisdom! I was going trough withdrawals because her TV shows aren't on TV anymore (*cry*) so I had to get me a copy of her newest book. It's not really meant for us in the USA per se, but most money rules apply univer ...more

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey

I tried to make it through it, I really did. It is good stuff just kind of...um, not very exciting to read after a few chapters. I guess I will not be highly effective now, I will have to be content with my own mediocrity.:-) No, it is good stuff--it ...more

I guess I was living under a rock back in 2009 because I don't remember this story hitting the national news at all, but wow, what an amazing story! Abby Johnson was a director at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas and while she wrestled with her c ...more

Martin Luther King Jr.
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Dale Carnegie
“It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”
Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People

Gordon B. Hinckley
“It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

Alan Bennett
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours”
Alan Bennett, The History Boys: The Film
