Quote of the Week: The Limit Does Not Exist

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life.  It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them…A man must constantly …

Books of the Week: 5/20 – 5/26

So once again, I’ve been slacking and I have no new books to report for this week.  I am still at the beginning of A Tale of Two Cities.  I’m trying to motivate myself to spend more time with this one, but I keep getting distracted by other things.  Hopefully I can push myself to get …

Books of the Week: 5/13 – 5/19

I said last week that I was going to start A Tale of Two Cities, and I did, but I can tell this is going to be very slow going.  Once again I’m dealing with such a tiny copy that it is rather hard to read, plus the writing style isn’t necessarily conducive to a speed-read. …

Do I Have to Play?

When I was in junior high, my least favorite class was gym.  I dreaded all of the staples: basketball, soccer, kickball and, especially, running the track.  Part of it was definitely that I am not very skilled in most sports.  But I realize that the larger part was that I hadn’t experienced the right activities …

Lost in Generations

Consider this a Part II to my previous post, Teenagers Are Scary, Right? (https://thegilmoreproject.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/teenagers-are-scary-right/)  I realized in reading over it that I left out Rory’s perspective. Some of us know our grandparents as the people who have spoiled us and sided with us our entire lives.  Some of us know them as more stoic and …
