Lizabeth and 14 other people liked Saintseester's review of A Dog's Purpose:
A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
"I knew better than to believe the gushing reviews that said this was the best book ever written in the history of books, and that the author "accurately" captured what goes on in a (reincarnated) dog's mind. Really?

While cute and mildly entertain..." Read more of this review »

I'm not very far into this book but so far the puppy's voice (though probably realistic if dogs could talk!) is driving me nuts. I feel like it's a children's book - and not a very good one at that (a la Watership Down). I'm going to trod through a f ...more

Moments of greatness but overall very flat.
The Dog who Came in from the Cold by Alexander McCall Smith
"This is another of McCall Smith's episodic series, like the Edinburgh one I can't remember (not the Isabel Dalhousie series). I'm so mystified how I can adore one of the author's series (Mma Ramotswe), but others I give up on. I gave up on the the..." Read more of this review »

Charlotte Brontë
“Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.”
Charlotte Brontë

Aristotle
“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”
Aristotle

“Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Winston  Churchill
“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm”
Winston Churchill

Louisa May Alcott
“The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely.”
Louisa May Alcott
