    Mr. Capone-Mark Shoenberg-great if you ever wanted to lnow anything about gangsters in the 20's

    American Gospel-can't remember author-great it you wanted to know anything about how and why our Constitution was written.

    Illusions-Richard Bach-all time favorite...I read it about once a month.

    Nothing's Sacred-Lewis Black-great social commentary.

    Hell, there are no rules here-- we're trying to accomplish something.

    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    "how full is your bucket" ---pretty much common sense---but a good read
    "I was not trying to be shocking, or to be a pioneer.
    I wasn't trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time.
    I didn't think of myself as liberated, and I don't believe that I did anything important.
    I was just myself. I didn't know any other way to be, or any other way to live."
