What Unites Us by Dan Rather
"(I read this on July 4th for a postal book swap but could only post about it now.)

While I am weary, so weary, of politics, I can appreciate the power of Dan Rather's rationality. I specifically appreciated his differentiation between "patriotism"..." Read more of this review »
Good and Mad by Rebecca Traister
"I love the way Rebecca Traister writes. She is clear, precise, well researched, and compelling. Women’s anger is a catalyst for change, for now, for the future. Ultimately, this book filled me with hope. It is a must read."

Elif Batuman
“She says she can’t talk,” Svetlana told me. “She’s a botanist her name is Fernanda, so of course her nickname is Fern. It suits her because ferns are so mysterious and sort of elusive and ferns can survive anywhere.”
Elif Batuman, The Idiot

Eve Ensler
“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.”
Eve Ensler

Bobbie Ann Mason
“One day I was counting the cats and I absent-mindedly counted myself.”
Bobbie Ann Mason, Shiloh and Other Stories

J.K. Rowling
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Fred Rogers
“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember
