Phillip Phillip said: " "The Hobbit" is a great starter book for readers interested in the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. The Hobbit is Mr. Bilbo Baggins of Bagshot Row. He is a small man (hobbit) who finds himself enmeshed in events that are much bigger than he is. He must arise ...more "

Adam Phillips
“So there is something perhaps more difficult to conceive of, sometimes born of resignation and sometimes not- a life in which not getting it is the point and not the problem; in which the project is to learn how not to ride the bicycle, how not to understand the poem. Or to put it the other way round, this would be a life in which getting it – the will to get it, the ambition to get it – was the problem; in which wanting to be an accomplice didn’t take precedence over making up one’s mind.”
Adam Phillips, Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life

“There is scarcely a person on Earth who has not heard of UFOs; many believe in them. Few, however, can say much about them. Fewer still-even believers-can find much time to think about them. Life finds a way of keeping us occupied with other matters.”
Richard Dolan, UFOs and the National Security State 2: The Cover-up Exposed 1973-91

“For example, obesity costs the average person an extra $1,429 per year in increased health care costs. But since we’re not required to set aside money for every burger we consume (to cover the real financial cost of the burger), the long-term costs of carrying extra weight remain invisible.”
Kerry Patterson, Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success

Kerry Patterson
“The average human being is actually quite bad at predicting what he or she should do in order to be happier, and this inability to predict keeps people from, well, being happier. In fact, psychologist Daniel Gilbert has made a career out of demonstrating that human beings are downright awful at predicting their own likes and dislikes. For example, most research subjects strongly believe that another $30,000 a year in income would make them much happier. And they feel equally strongly that adding a 30-minute walk to their daily routine would be of trivial import. And yet Dr. Gilbert’s research suggests that the added income is far less likely to produce an increase in happiness than the addition of a regular walk.”
