Cute manga about cats who give massages to office workers who are stressed out. The cats are really cute!
It's like a made-up dictionary of sorrows like: amoransia - the melodramatic thrill of unrequited love. . .
This book was okay but nothing extraordinary or anythinh.
page 234: "We are willfully choosing to be miserable and making others miserable, too. The time we are miserable is time we can never get back. Even more painful, it was all our doing. It was our choice."
This book is okay, but mostly the author uses himself as an example of how cool he is. Basically, no book can help you, you're on your own in life!!!
"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with their song still in them" - Thoreau
p6. "You don't have to live your life the way other people expect you to."
page 18: there's just one big problem: for those of us who long for a life of adventure, the life of sleepingwalking sucks.
page 23: there's nothing wrong with thinking ahead, but life does not begin at age 65.
page 28: Most of us have lottery fantasies from time to time... The alternative is to write your own winning lottery ticket... That's my proposal: creating your own life
page 28: People say that what we're seeking is a meaning for life... I don't think that's what we're really seeking. What we seek is an experience of being alive."
page 66: most remarkable people are not remarkable by nature. instead, they made a few key choices along the way that helped them overcome their fears."
page 177: the to-stop doing list: Make a list of things you should STOP doing ;-)
page 161: 46.5 billion is "current distance from Earth of the most distant visible objects in the universe that are theoretically visible."
This book was kinda boring, but it did say on page 28 to try "financial fasting" and not buy anything except the necessities for a set period of time.
I dunno, I want to retire right now! Everyone knows everything except how to do that.
This was a cute book about art, and it was a fun read!
page 45: "Art is out there waiting to be captured, the only question being whether we are prepared to recognize it"
page 68 "we are programmed to experience awe in certain circumstances and are therefore doomed to be disappointed when, inevitably, we don't feel it."
page 71 "[Walt Whitman] thought the United States itself was the greatest poem."
page 72: "Andy Warhol was Andrew Warhol's masterpiece."
I dunno, I found this book to be lacking. It does have a table of contents featuring different countries, but basically it just tells you about the airport and a couple of expensive restaurants. Every chapter is like, this country has the best food, etc. Who cares about that? I can't even afford it? I just go to Taco Bell in different countries?
