1. My book: "The Brain Dance" written by Shani Grove. Illustrated by... me! :-)
I illustrated this self-help psychology book over a decade ago. I found my old copy when I was unpacking my personal stuff this week. Would you believe I've never read this book? I did the illustrations and got to know the pages/portions I was working on off by heart, but the in-between bits are unknown territory, I'm ashamed to say. Having read page 123 and found it interesting I will have to sit down some day and read the rest. Sorry it took so long, Shani!
The three sentences on page 123:
Unfortunately, this strategy of greed or selfishness does not work very well for him, because he is never sated and never gains the feeling of satisfaction and balance he seeks. It is as though he grabs everything and hoards it in a bottomless pit. The bottomless pit is his selfishness.
...and for the curious, here's how that paragraph ended:
Selfishness is therefore geared to getting something you never had (love), but if you seek love in this way you will never find it. Selfishness and self-love are not the same thing. In fact, they are the opposites.
I am tagging five bloggers I think will give me unique and/or interesting books/sentences:
