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.

“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
