Well done book about how finite and limited our vision can be. I feel like I've lived in this world for a while and the author contrasts the two ends of this spectrum clearly and with compelling stories. He also has some great ideas or reminders for ...more

“I know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me. How? Because 12 men testified they had seen Jesus raised from the dead, then they proclaimed that truth for 40 years, never once denying it. Every one was beaten, tortured, stoned and put in prison. They would not have endured that if it weren't true. Watergate embroiled 12 of the most powerful men in the world-and they couldn't keep a lie for three weeks. You're telling me 12 apostles could keep a lie for 40 years? Absolutely impossible.”

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Howard Thurman

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Jane, my to-read list is just a list of the books I don't want to forget. Some have been on there a long time because I find more interesting things in the short run and others get read quickly. I pick them individually based on mood and interests at the time.

Happy New Year to you too! Have a great 2015!


message 1: by Jane

Jane I'm curious. Are these the books you have on your list to read this year 2015, like documenting your goal? I'm setting a goal of 2 books per month and have never used Goodreads to document my plan. It seems logical though. Happy new year Mike! Wishing you many successes and much joy!
