Carmen Carmen said: " I'm about midway though this book and really enjoying it. A bit suprised about the negative reviews.
Yes, it can be a bit tedious at time but I feel that it works overall - Schiff truly transports the reader t0 Salem of the late 1600's. I've been eng

Joshua Wolf Shenk
“A person with a melancholy temperament had been fated with both an awful burden and what Byron called “a fearful gift.” The burden was a sadness and despair that could tip into a state of disease. But the gift was a capacity for depth, wisdom—even genius.”
Joshua Wolf Shenk, Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness

Anton Chekhov
“King David had a ring with an inscription on it: ‘All things pass.’ When one is sad those words make one cheerful, and when one is cheerful it makes one sad. I have got myself a ring like that with Hebrew letters on it, and this talisman keeps me from infatuations. All things pass, life will pass, one wants nothing. Or at least one wants nothing but the sense of freedom, for when anyone is free, he wants nothing, nothing, nothing.”
Anton Chekhov, My Life

Jacob Nordby
“When in brief flashes of serendipity you glimpse what you were born to do...
Do it.
No matter what. Take steps toward it, even if they are depressingly small at first. With each inch closer to your central magic, you will feel it.
It is unmistakable for anything else.
It's called purpose.”
Jacob Nordby

Susan Cain
“Scores of studies have shown that venting doesn't soothe anger; it fuels it.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
tags: anger

Jacob Nordby
“Every pain, addiction, anguish, longing, depression, anger or fear
is an orphaned part of us
seeking joy,
some disowned shadow
wanting to return
to the light
and home
of ourselves.”
Jacob Nordby
