IMG_9120I am writing this article while on a long-planned trip to Thailand! It’s a country I’ve wanted to visit for some time and finally had the opportunity to make a nice extended trip. I have been to India many times, also visited Singapore and Hong Kong back when I was a medical student—but this part of Asia remained on my bucket list. So far, it’s been a truly memorable vacation, doing things from...

It's always interesting to read a book that looks at other non-conventional ways of thinking and acting. While the book contains many intriguing stories and useful bits of advice, I thought that the author presented too many of the concepts as "Black ...more

Talent is Overrated by Geoff Colvin

I found this an interesting book, very similar to the work of Malcolm Gladwell. It was well written and presented some intriguing concepts. However I found that the book was frequently trying to become too "corporate" and move towards being business- ...more

A Little History of the World by E.H. Gombrich

I would go as far to say that E.H. Gombrich's book should be compulsory reading for all high school students and young adults. The book is insightful and utterly depressing. Not so much in its structure or writing style, but because it reinforces man ...more

“Greed begets more greed.”
Suneel Dhand, Thomas Jefferson: Lessons from a Secret Buddha

“Washington was a typical American. Napoleon was a typical Frenchman, but Lincoln was a humanitarian as broad as the world. He was bigger than his country - bigger than all the Presidents together.

We are still too near to his greatness,' (Leo) Tolstoy (in 1908) concluded, 'but after a few centuries more our posterity will find him considerably bigger than we do. His genius is still too strong and powerful for the common understanding, just as the sun is too hot when its light beams directly on us.' (748)”
Doris Kearns Goodwin, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“I'm a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”
Thomas Jefferson

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”
Benjamin Franklin
