Reading List

Mr. Dickie and daughter Cyndi on Dick's 70th Birthday in May 2009

... so much new information [is] coming your way that you are continually being reminded that you owe it to yourself to do all you can to prepare yourself to receive these new insights. (Introduction to Until Today! by Iyanla Vanzant)

The compulsive drive for perfection - an unrealistic idealism - can be a neurotic symptom as difficult to deal with as the alcoholic's compulsion to drink. (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 23 December)
