ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec. 18

Today I am going to write all of the expressions that I found meaningful from the book" Your Second Life Begins when You realize that you only have one". That is a pretty lengthy title for a book. It was the whole cover. Here are the statements :

 

happiness illiterates, emotional intelligence, re-educate the way you look at life, rediscover yourself, change is a door that can only be opened from the inside, everybody has a duty toward life, reconquering your life, the worse thing is not failure, it's not having tried and the last saying before I returned the book is from Aristotle who said, we are what we repeat. I love these kind of thoughts. I would like to have something come up in a conversation where I could drop ," oh, he is a happiness illiterate. " Or this is even better," he has no emotional intelligence". Neither of those two statements should be considered gender specific. It can be either or. I didn't know that I was going to get so much out of one slim book. I can see why it was a best seller in France and translated. I wish I had written down the name of the author. Small detail. I can look it up on the internet.
