Super Mario Bros. 3 by Bob Chipman
"Bob goes into way too much detail, repeats himself, bounces back and forth between topics and writes about off topic things nobody cares about. In one part he seems to think we care about the time he was doing a public access show and his boss thr..." Read more of this review »

"Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right.


The first couple of pages could quite possibly be the worst waste of ink put to paper in the history of humanity. However, Bob Chipman makes up for it by revealing how mentally unstable he is, doing so..." Read more of this review »

"I'm not really familiar with the author's other work. As far as I know this is his only book. A friend recommended this book to me and I can honestly say, it is the worst book I've ever read. It was poorly written, badly edited, and abysmally shor..." Read more of this review »

“Before I met you, my life ran on sheer amusement.
After I met you, my life ran on sheer compassion.”
Heenashree Khandelwal, Soulmates, By Chance

William Voegeli
“Etymologically, "compassion" means to suffer together. "Together," however, is different from "identically." Compassion is not the same as selflessness, and not really the opposite of selfishness. Rather, it provides a basis for helping other people that is materially disinterested but emotionally self-regarding. As Rousseau wrote in Emile, "When the strength of an expansive soul makes me identify myself with my fellow, and I feel that I am, so to speak, in him, it is in order not to suffer that I do not want him to suffer. I am interested in him for love of myself..." Or, as Jean Bethke Elshtain has said, "Pity is about how deeply I can feel. And in order to feel this way, to experience the rush of my own pious reaction, I need victims the way an addict needs drugs.”
William Voegeli, Never Enough: America's Limitless Welfare State

“Society reaps what it sows in the way it nurtures its children, because stress sculpts the brain to exhibit several antisocial behaviors. Stress can set off a ripple of hormonal changes that permanently wire a child's brain to cope with a malevolent world. Through this chain of events, violence and abuse pass from generation to generation as well as from one society to the next. Many world leaders who have been disciplined through anger and cruelty go in to treat their own people abominably, or to bully other nations. As long as we continue to discipline children like this, we will continue to have terrible wars on both the family and the world stage. One very powerful study illustrates the point. Researchers tracked down Germans who, in World War II, risked their own lives by hiding a Jewish person in their house. When interviewed, the researchers found one common feature of all these people. They had all been socialized in ways that respected their personal dignity.”
Margot Sunderland, The Science of Parenting

Edward de Bono
“When the positive revolution takes hold it will no longer be enough for politicians to gain points through attack or being negative. Politicians will be expected to be constructive.”
Edward de Bono, Handbook for the Positive Revolution
