He would not even allow a man to attend his father's funeral!Is the magical tradition less rigid?Not on your life!

    Barbara Ehrenreich (1990). “WORST YEARS OF OUR LIVES”, Pantheon

I'd like to see America continue to do so.

The soul gets sick; it neither sees nor hears anything. No family ties, position, nor fortune, can stand against this passion.

  • Whether your focus is on preserving and strengthening family ties in a world of increasingly unstable relationships, gaining access to a decent job, growing and evolving as a person, or guiding a company through the stormy seas of a fiercely competitive global marketplace-whether your goals are material, emotional, or spiritual-the price of success is the same: thinking, learning. To be asleep at the wheel-to rely only on the known, familiar, and automatized-is to invite disaster.
