"Many people believe they listen to their hearts, but their other organs have learned to throw their voices."-- Dale Dauten
Where are you going to get that informed understanding? You can't always rely on other people to give it to you, and you can't always accept everything you're told. Many people will never tell you the bad news. Others will faithfully tell you how to be what they think all people should be. Of everything you hear, what do you believe? One size does not fit all. Although there are common elements, such as integrity and prudence, in good character, there is no one single definition of who everyone should be.
"He who would live another's life, another's death must die."The purpose of this site is to provide you with a starter toolkit for self-assessment, with leads to the sources if you are interested on following up on other people's ideas. Instead of having to go out and collect these sources on your own, you can see the materials that I have found valuable, understand why, and dig further into those that interest you. And if you have resources of your own that you have found useful, I would like to hear about them.-- James Thurber
I am also including ideas of my own whose veracity I have learned along the way.
I would also be pleased to hear from you about sources not on this list
that you have found helpful. Or, if you are an author of a relevant book,
I would like to hear from you. In either case I would appreciate a summary
and an excerpt of the source material. It would be helpful if the material
in question is commercially available, so that I can link to it on my site.
