How Full Is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath
"Personal Response:
I thought this book was one of the better books I read so far this year. It definitely made me think a little about myself and how I should be way more positive with life. I also thought this book was kind of short, because it w..." Read more of this review »
How Full Is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath
"This book is a short, easy read. While the "bucket" concept is a little bit cheesy, I get the overall point...and it's a good one. We should try to project positivity toward others, thus increasing our own positivity. Too often, in our workplaces..." Read more of this review »

Durga Chew-Bose
“maybe that’s why I’m drawn to wonder: it pays no attention to priorities.”
Durga Chew-Bose, Too Much and Not the Mood: Essays

Miles Davis
“It’s not the note you play that’s the wrong note – it’s the note you play afterwards that makes it right or wrong.”
Miles Davis

Josh Waitzkin
“Growth comes at the point of resistance. We learn by pushing ourselves and finding what really lies at the outer reaches of our abilities.”
Josh Waitzkin, The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence

Ray Bradbury
“It was a pleasure to burn.
It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning to bring down the tatters and charcoal ruins of history. With his symbolic helmet numbered 451 on his stolid head, and his eyes all orange flame with the thought of what came next, he flicked the igniter and the house jumped up in a gorging fire that burned the evening sky red and yellow and black. He strode in a swarm of fireflies. He wanted above all, like the old joke, to shove a marshmallow on a stick in the furnace, while the flapping pigeon-winged books died on the porch and lawn of the house. While the books went up in sparkling whirls and blew away on a wind turned dark with burning.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Lester Bangs
“The real question is what to live for. And I can't answer it. Except another one of your records. And another chance for me to write. Art for art's sake, corny as that sounds.”
Lester Bangs, Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung
