“I learned something about that little voice inside, the one you silence with rationalization or bury with office paperwork. He finds other ways to be subversive. He doesn’t like being kept on the path. That voice is as obstinate as a child, but he’s telling you how to behave like a man.”

Essay on Marcus Aurelius—Matthew Arnold
Full Frontal Feminism—Jessica Valenti
Saying that this is an awful book is really unfair because it’s not even a book. It’s a 250 page blog post (that is awful). It is also proof that most bloggers shouldn’t be given publishing deals and that Women’s Studies is without a doubt the least scholarly of all college majors.

Art and Fear–David Bayles
Decent, but not nearly as good as the War of Art.
