Integrity to Idealism  Sep 24, 2003
9/24/03 editors Greer and Kohl in taking from Courage(pg 15) to Love (Pg 411) and quotes from various source(s) on all conceivable character traits give a spontaneousness and charisma to characteristics that oft time appear to be "robotic"(e.g. 1.courage(Pg 15) :poet Shirley Kaufman "It's not what I wake up to but what I dream")or(e.g. 2. generosity (Pg 177): Eleanor Porter's Pollyanna "..of course you're glad to help Dr. Clinton;I should think being a doctor would be the gladdest business there was") or (e.g. 3:Compassion:"Our house has character,their's is rundown";"we are cautious,they are chicken";"our friend is the life of the party,their friend always makes a fool of himself after a few drinks"; "Our friend has written a book with a plot as light as a souffle,their friend has written a book with a flimsy plot".
 
A collection of wonderful excerpts illustrating values.  Dec 30, 1996
This book is full of excerpts from little- and well-known books with a soulful commentary behind each one. Characters from The Elephant's Child to Helen Keller learn more about themselves and their surroundings in bits and pieces that might help you to learn a bit more about yourself and your surroundings. Great for family readings or just to yourself or your child. Is also a nice chunky book to hold up bookshelves, if nothing else
