Charles Eliot's Harvard Classics, 5-foot shelf of books and a shelf of fiction. 15-minutes per day for a year to a liberal education. In Fifteen Minutes a Day, The Reading Guide, Dr. Elliot is quoted as saying "...I had more than once stated in public that in my opinion a five-foot -- at first a three-foot -- shelf would hold books enough to afford a good substitute for a liberal education to anyone who would read them with devotion, even if he could spare but fifteen minutes a day for reading."

Quote of the moment
If you go more deeply into your own spiritual practice, emphasizing wisdom and compassion, you will encounter the suffering of other sentient beings again and again, and you will have the capacity to acknowledge it, respond to it, and feel deep compassion rather than apathy or impotence.

When contemplating suffering, do not fall into the feeling of self-importance or conceit. Cultivating wisdom helps us to avoid these pitfalls. But it is hard to generalize because each person's courage and forbearance are unique.

~ The Path to Tranquility, December 23, 14th Dalai Lama ~
