10 Books That Have Made Me Who I Am

I accept the challenge of Nathan Koozer and have come up with the following list of books that meet this criteria: "List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way... Don't over think it."
These books all came to me at critical moments in my life and have made me who I am. Though telling an academic not to "over think it" is like telling a baby to stop crying.

Why Buddhism is True by Robert Wright
“RAIN. First you Recognize the feeling. Then you Accept the feeling (rather than try to drive it away). Then you Investigate the feeling and its relationship to your body. Finally, the N stands for Nonidentification, or, equivalently, Nonattachment. Which is a nice note to end on, since not being attached to things was the Buddha’s all-purpose prescription for what ails us.”

Why Buddhism is True by Robert Wright
“In other words, if you were to build into the brain a component in charge of public relations, it would look something like the conscious self.”

Robin Hobb
“He would fear everyone he did not control. And the next day he would fear those he controlled even more.”
Robin Hobb, Royal Assassin

Robin Hobb
“The exercise for centering oneself is a simple one. Stop thinking of what you intend to do. Stop thinking of what you have just done. Then, stop thinking that you have stopped thinking of those things. Then you will find the Now, the time that stretches eternal, and is really the only time there is. Then, in that place, you will finally have time to be yourself.”
Robin Hobb, Royal Assassin

“Here is Merton’s lament. “Lights on. Clocks ticking. Thermostats working. Stoves cooking. Electric shavers filling radios with static. ‘Wisdom,’ cries the dawn deacon, but we do not attend.”
Christopher Pramuk, At Play in Creation: Merton's Awakening to the Feminine Divine

“We have traded mystery and wonder for mastery and technological manipulation, for cheap imitations of the real thing. The result is the deep sense of alienation so many feel amid mass society.”
Christopher Pramuk, At Play in Creation: Merton's Awakening to the Feminine Divine

“The fact that you are a Zen Buddhist and I am a Christian monk, far from separating us, makes us most like one another. How many centuries is it going to take for people to discover this fact?”
Christopher Pramuk, At Play in Creation: Merton's Awakening to the Feminine Divine
