The Letters of John and Abigail Adams by Abigail Adams
“I do not say that democracy has been more pernicious on the whole, and in the long run, than monarchy or aristocracy. Democracy has never been and never can be so durable as aristocracy or monarchy; but while it lasts, it is more bloody than either. … Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy. It is not true, in fact, and nowhere appears in history. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty. When clear prospects are opened before vanity, pride, avarice, or ambition, for their easy gratification, it is hard for the most considerate philosophers and the most conscientious moralists to resist the temptation.

Notorious in the Neighborhood by Joshua D. Rothman
"I thought this was an excellent exploration of interracial sex in antebellum Virginia. Rothman begins with Jefferson and Hemings and manages to tie together all the cases and stories presented in the book. It is interesting to note that as the nin..." Read more of this review »

The Bipolar Child by Demitri Papolos
"This book is clearly a polemic. The husband-wife Papalos pair have definitely contributed to the massive increase in the diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children in the past 15yrs due to their assertion that a good percentage of children have thi..." Read more of this review »
The Bipolar Child by Demitri Papolos
"Take it for what it is, a book of general information. Your own experiences will be somewhat unique to you but these landmarks are so important. This isn't a fast moving novel; it's an informative compilation of advice, experiences, symptoms, gene..." Read more of this review »

Arthur Conan Doyle
“Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

“All our young lives we search for someone to love, 
someone who makes us complete. 
We chose partners and change partners. 
We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope 
all the while wondering if somewhere and somehow 
there is someone searching for us.”
Fred Savage

John  Adams
“It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished.

But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, 'whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection,' and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of security whatsoever.”
John Adams, The Portable John Adams
