Book cover for The Archbishop: A Novel
“You would be better off by telling me about your burden, sharing it brotherly, and perhaps it won’t seem so heavy anymore. A burden shared is a burden halved.”
Adam M. Grant
“How do you know? It’s a question we need to ask more often, both of ourselves and of others. The power lies in its frankness. It’s nonjudgmental—a straightforward expression of doubt and curiosity that doesn’t put people on the defensive.”
Adam M. Grant, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know

“Many psychologists whom I spoke with think the erosion of the extended family is a root cause for the high rates of postpartum depression in the U.S., as well as the rising epidemic of anxiety and depression among children and teenagers. Moms, dads, and kids are simply lonely.”
Michaeleen Doucleff, Hunt, Gather, Parent: What Ancient Cultures Can Teach Us About the Lost Art of Raising Happy, Helpful Little Humans

Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
“Too often, she looked forward to the end of something—to beginning the remembering—more than the thing itself.”
Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, Good Company

Thomas Erikson
“But the most important lesson that you can walk away with is that the idiots who surround you are, in fact, not idiots at all. Instead, they are individuals worthy of respect, understanding, and being valued.”
Thomas Erikson, Surrounded by Idiots: The Four Types of Human Behaviour

Adam M. Grant
“We learn more from people who challenge our thought process than those who affirm our conclusions. Strong leaders engage their critics and make themselves stronger. Weak leaders silence their critics and make themselves weaker. This reaction isn’t limited to people in power. Although we might be on board with the principle, in practice we often miss out on the value of a challenge network.”
Adam M. Grant, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
