Fall Out by Tim Shipman
Rate this book
Clear rating
Very clear record of an important time in British Politics. Depressing read - a lot of ego's, mediocre leadership, a time of decline. Helpful to try and understand a fast-moving era, but not very uplifting.

“I'll be quite for now because I make mistakes too... but once The Perfect Almighty One judges you, there are no excuses.”
A Gentlemen

Richard Rohr
“It has been acceptable for some time in America to remain "wound identified" (that is, using one's victimhood as one's identity, one's ticket to sympathy, and one's excuse for not serving), instead of using the wound to "redeem the world," as we see in Jesus and many people who turn their wounds into sacred wounds that liberate both themselves and others.”
Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

D.B. Patterson
“No, you cannot stop the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can stop them from building nests in your hair.”
D.B. Patterson

Isaac Asimov
“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
Isaac Asimov
