Attitude: are you born with it or can you learn it? That was the question on a family Zoom call after mom’s passing. The follow-up question on everyone’s mind was then, “And if I wasn’t born with it and we can learn it, how do I do it?” For this book, I reached out to mom’s friends and family. The responses I got back make up the bulk of this book. “...it wasn't just because she was a very attractive girl---it was also because of the irrepressible energy that was such an appealing part of who she was.” Again, OK, attractive, maybe she’s born with that but then what’s really interesting for this guy? Her irrepressible energy. -- Attitude -- Energy We can learn and build and grow both of those. This book is how my mom did it--and how you can, too.

We overestimate what we can do in one year and underestimate what we can do in ten years. All of us have our own mountains to climb and conquer. One thing is certain: we will have to actively pursue success. It does not just happen. It is based on small everyday choices and efforts. It requires constant work and care. It requires us to be persistent, consistent, and patient. We may succeed, or we may fail. Every time we fail, it brings us closer to success. People who are successful are the ones who keep failing and getting up. The most important thing is not to quit trying. We have to start by selling ourselves to ourselves. Once we achieve some success, it is easy to forget all the small efforts we have put in over the years. So it is wise to take a good hard look into our life. We will see the long way we have come and appreciate every part of it. We need to appreciate ourselves and know that whatever we have we deserve. When we finally succeed, all that people see are the results. Suddenly, something you worked on for years looks like an overnight success. But as we know, success is never a coincidence. It is not a question of luck either. The harder we work, the luckier we get! If we want people to be aware of it, let them be a part of our journey. Let them know that whatever we have achieved, it is because we learned, we followed certain principles, we got out of our comfort zone, we changed, and we grew. What we have, we deserve.

EVERYONE FOR EVERYONE the book (volumes I & II) by Samuel A. Nigro, M.D. The Everybody for Everybody Book is the accumulation of what was learned over 70 plus years of life, over 45 years of marriage, over 40 years as a psychiatrist, 3 years in the U.S. Navy Submarine Service, and as a first generation American with five children and ten grandchildren. The planet and mankind are amazing. To limit ourselves to behaviors as if there is nothing more, is contradicted by an accurate comprehensive understanding of the planet and the universe. Basically, love is superior to all and the universe is the entropy necessary for the expression of love. Love itself requires there to be more. "Nothing more" is a cruel joke that life and love are meaningless. All logic and reason demand there be more, and we should act as if there is even much more love in anticipation. And if there isn't, then there ought to be! Regardless, the world would be better by believing in such and acting as such. The book provides some articles but most of it is the way to live a transcendental life: organized matter sanctified and given a soul by identity, truth, oneness, good and beauty for everyone's life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness partially the subtitle of the book. You get substance and the transcendental principles for living that save by "actuality" for a change. This is in contrast to the virtual reality culture of the unreliable manipulating self-discrediting noisy glitzy press&media imposed substanceless non-being which, by suggestibility, turns us into choiceless aliens instead of free persons for the planet. By the self-worshiping self-discrediting press&media, we are on the madman road-rage race to the bottom culture of pollution, disgust, death, and decline. Not by this book. Against vulgar suggestibility and glitz caused gullibility, this book gives real being by teaching six analogous ways of living the wisdom-filled eight categories of metaphors of love in the cone of space-time: As a human particle by elementary physics event, spectrum, field, quantum, singularity, dimension, uncertainty, and force. As a human being by community universals dignity, unity, integrity, identity, spirituality, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. As a C/catholic, Roman or otherwise, by the sacraments Baptism, Penance, Holy Communion, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, Matrimony, and Grace. As a Christian by the virtues faith, hope, charity, prudence, justice, courage, temperance, and holiness. As a "patient" by the universal variables of all therapy living things are precious, selective ignoring, subdued spontaneity non-self excluded, affect assistance, detached warmth & gentleness, non-reactive listening, C2CC centered candidness, and peace & mercy. And as sanctified by the last words of the crucified Christ. Take your pick or combine them all. Except for the quantity, it is simple. Thousands of aphorisms and concepts about every imaginable topic are offered to teach ancient secrets from "nature and nature's God" (to quote the Founding Fathers of America). Interspersed in the book are the world's first SEX SATIRES...fiery hilarious...which will help all cope with the prurience flooding the world as entertainment, advertisement and games. SEX SATIRE, properly applied to those exploiting sex, will free you from sex craziness and help keep society's prurience from disrupting your transcendental life.

Everyone has a story to tell, a legacy to leave to both living family and future generations. In his memoir, A Boy from Barnhart: Times Remembered, author Herb Taylor shares his life story and legacy, from his coming of age on large ranches and small towns in West Texas to his subsequent career as a professional army officer. Taylor writes of life and its realities during the drought years of the 1950s. He chronicles the people, places, ideas, and incidents he encountered during a twenty-eight year army career, as well as his struggle with a lifelong alcohol addiction and the death of his childhood sweetheart after a thirty-five year marriage. He writes of the good times and the not so good, the ordinary and the unusual, in a casual, personal, and informative way that captures the times and his life experiences. Equal parts genealogy, history, travelogue, and memoir, Taylor’s memories are the emotional account of a life well-lived, as well as an interesting and intricate record of times gone by.

"What makes South African English different? Have you ever wondered where the words ‘gogga’, ‘tsotsi’ and ‘larney’ come from? Did you know that the first sentence uttered by a South African in English may have been spoken by a Khoikhoi man in 1613? South African English is unique and is made up of several varieties. This entertaining and informative book looks at the forms of English spoken here, where they come from and how they fit into the spectrum of world Englishes. Humorous and engaging, it is packed with common expressions, slang, grammatical variations and distinctive South African words and phrases, including ‘just now’, ‘busy waiting’ and, of course, ‘eish’. The book explores the influence of Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa and other languages on English as it is spoken in the diverse context of South Africa. It considers the social implications of language, questions notions of correctness and incorrectness, and celebrates South African English for its innovations and expressiveness. Eish, but is it English? is a book for everyone who is interested in the way we use language and make it our own. "

From an innocuous encounter in an airplane, to discourses of the enrichment of the only philosophy his own father handed down to him, through issues of concern for dereliction of education, to building a wholesome and homogeneous community. He highlights issues through his own journey through life and the numerous recordation of those he had made and shared in a span of close to two decades, blending fun and earnest graveness without being preachy or sanctimonious. Drawing from the Desiderata and his favorite prayer, Good Morning God, he uses an engaging discourse form to deliver the message that our stories, individually and collectively, written or unwritten, is the culminant of the world's story. In this book, he shows that inspiration is not farfetched and that from effecting liveability in our immediate surrounding we can shape our story to effect "points of contact and communication" that will eventually give "the world story, the great Story, .....a chance to develop."

Since we first arrived on the planet, we’ve been telling each other stories, whether of that morning’s great saber-tooth tiger hunt or the latest installment of the Star Wars saga. And throughout our history, despite differences of geography or culture, we’ve been telling those stories in essentially the same way. Why? Because there is a RIGHT way to tell a story, one built into our very DNA. In his seminal work Poetics, Aristotle identified the patterns and recurring elements that existed in the successful dramas of his time as he explored precisely why we tell stories, what makes a good one, and how to best tell them. In Classical Storytelling and Contemporary Screenwriting, Brian Price examines Aristotle’s conclusions in an entertaining and accessible way and then applies those guiding principles to the most modern of storytelling mediums, going from idea to story to structure to outline to final pages and beyond, covering every relevant screenwriting topic along the way. The result is a fresh new approach to the craft of screenwriting—one that’s only been around a scant 2,500 years or so—ideal for students and aspiring screenwriters who want a comprehensive step-by-step guide to writing a successful screenplay the way the pros do it.
