  • Amazon shared from How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough
    Note: This book is a really interesting look at what makes people successful in higher education and professionally. I like how it also touches on the idea that positive character traits (grit) can be useful in other areas of life but I would have liked to see more analysis of that topic.
  • Amazon shared from Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins
    Note: I can't recommend this book highly enough.
  • Amazon shared from Poems by Emily Dickinson, Three Series, Complete by Emily Dickinson
    Life is but life, and death but death! Bliss is but bliss, and breath but breath! And if, indeed, I fail, At least to know the worst is sweet. Defeat means nothing but defeat, No drearier can prevail!
  • Amazon shared from MetaGame by Sam Landstrom
    Master, I have detected the emotion you’ve in the past labeled “sad and pointless dwelling.” Would you like me to take countermeasures?
    Note: I wish I had a robot companion to detect my sad and pointless dwelling.
