Muhammad, Prophet of God by Daniel Peterson
Rate this book

A very nice clear short biography of Muhammad, on the scholarly side. Lots of footnotes, a little discussion of alternate interpretations of history, but happily lacking in jargon. Very interesting.
Fear Itself by Duffy Prendergast

A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis
“What do people mean when they say, 'I am not afraid of God because I know He is good'? Have they never even been to a dentist?”

Tina Fey
“The first rule of improvisation is AGREE. Always agree and SAY YES. When you're improvising, this means you are required to agree with whatever your partner has created. So if we're improvising and I say, 'Freeze, I have a gun,' and you say, 'That's not a gun. It's your finger. You're pointing your finger at me,' our improvised scene has ground to a halt. But if I say, 'Freeze, I have a gun!' and you say, 'The gun I gave you for Christmas! You bastard!' then we have started a scene because we have AGREED that my finger is in fact a Christmas gun.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Stephanie Perkins
“St. Clair clears his throat. 'My fiancée and I are headed out for a celebratory dessert. I'd ask you all to join us, but I don't want you there.”
Stephanie Perkins, Isla and the Happily Ever After

“If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand.”

G.K. Chesterton
“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”
G.K. Chesterton

Terry Pratchett
“If there was anything that depressed him more than his own cynicism, it was that quite often it still wasn't as cynical as real life.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!
