Truth Worth Telling by Scott Pelley

A reporter’s notebook, farrago, of history on the run. Great insights on Persian Gulf conflicts, 9/11, and American values worth fighting for. The book is best when Pelley writes memoir, less so when running teleplays of his interviews. Journalists w ...more

“He among us who realizes, “Not that I do not know— I know it and I know it not,” he knows it.4”
Vernon Katz, The Upanishads: A New Translation by Vernon Katz and Thomas Egenes

“Just as learning to ride a bicycle requires maturation, training, and practice, so, too, does learning to think (e.g., Segal, Chipman, & Glaser, 1985) and learning to write (e.g., Bereiter & Scardamalia, 1987).”
Ronald T. Kellogg, The Psychology of Writing

Richard Powers
“Trees fall with spectacular crashes. But planting is silent and growth is invisible.”
Richard Powers, The Overstory

Patti Smith
“I got some coffee and stood looking at the sky.”
Patti Smith, M Train

Louise DeSalvo
“Literary history teaches us that enormously successful writers are often members of a cohort of creative people who, as they mature in their field, help one another achieve success. The work of each member of the group gains more notice than if each had worked in isolation.”
Louise DeSalvo, The Art of Slow Writing: Reflections on Time, Craft, and Creativity
