Lori is 70% done with Dare to Lead
The Torment of Sherlock Holmes by Val Andrews

So... as someone who prefers Sherlock pastiches to follow the original stories, I found that this one fell short. Not only was Mycroft far too involved (and of his own volition) and far too mobile, Irene Adler made no sense to me. At the..." Read more of this review »

Ayn Rand
“Do not let the hero in your soul parish, in lonely frustration, for the life you deserved but never have been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Chris  Fox
“Remember, you're the sum of your peer group. If you associate with people who have no ambition and spend all their time getting high and playing video games, then that's what you're going to become. This happens because we are a tribal species. Your standards will rise or fall to match the people you associate with.”
Chris Fox, Lifelong Writing Habit: The Secret to Writing Every Day

Dr. Seuss
“A person's a person, no matter how small.”
Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!

Ayn Rand
“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Ayn Rand
“Pride is the recognition of the fact that you are your own highest value and, like all of man’s values, it has to be earned.
His own happiness is man’s only moral purpose, but only his own virtue can achieve it…Life is the reward of virtue- and happiness is the goal and the reward of life.

Happiness is a state of non-contradictory joy- a joy without penalty or guilt, a joy that does not clash with any of your values and does not work for your won destruction, not the joy of escaping from your mind, but using your mind’s fullest power.

Happiness is possible only to a rational man, the man who desires nothing but rational goals, seek nothing but rational values and finds his joy in nothing bu rational actions.

The symbol of all relationships among such men, the moral symbol of respect for human beings, is the trade…A trader is a man who earns what he gets and does not give or take the undeserved.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
