The Phrase That Pays

JW* – “The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” — Little House on the Prairie, Laura Ingalls Wilder

EB* – “But really, they did it because every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. It might not seem that way sometimes, but it’s true.” ―The Martian, Andy Weir

MS* – “People who have not been in Narnia sometimes think that a thing cannot be good and terrible at the same time.” — The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis

JD – “Patience, he thought. So much of this was patience – waiting, and thinking and doing things right. So much of all this, so much of all living was patience and thinking.” — Hatchet, Gary Paulsen

I forgot to collect quotes from everyone in our meeting this week so I am posting quotes from an article I recently read.

The article was about reading (and book clubs, specifically) and how it expands our thinking.

Pick up a good book. Think about what the author is really saying.

And then share those ideas with someone you care about.

Make it a great day.
