I don’t feel more informed after reading this book. Upswing reminds me of Malcolm Gladwell’s books, and that is not a compliment. Gladwell is a journalist popularizer who draws scant connections and attempts to simplify the complex losing all nuance ...more

Eleanor Roosevelt
“I wish with all my heart that every child could be so imbued with a sense of the adventure of life that each change, each readjustment, each surprise--good or bad--that came along would be welcomed as part of the whole enthralling experience.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life

Grace Lee Boggs
“Real poverty is the belief that the purpose of life is acquiring wealth and owning things. Real wealth is not the possession of property but the recognition that our deepest need, as human beings, is to keep developing our natural and acquired powers to relate to other human beings.”
Grace Lee Boggs, The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century

Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut

C.S. Lewis
“Don't judge a man by where he is, because you don't know how far he has come”
C.S. Lewis
