An Apple Books Classic edition. Writing as Henry Handel Richardson, Ethel Richardson drew on her personal experience to tell the story of her fictional heroine, Laura Rambotham. At age 12, Laura’s mother sends her intelligent, high-spirited daughter to boarding school, even though she can barely afford it with the money she makes doing embroidery. Most of Laura’s classmates come from wealthy backgrounds and look down on her, but that’s not the only issue: Laura’s creativity is at odds with the school’s narrow-mindedness and focus on developing genteel ladies. Her mettle is tested as she navigates her way through a confusing and sophisticated world. Initially published in 1910, The Getting of Wisdom is a timeless story of class conflict and the loss of innocence. The novel was adapted into a 1977 movie by Australian director Bruce Beresford.

C.S. Lewis’ Little Book of Wisdom

Meditations on Faith, Life, Love and Literature

Andrea Kirk Assaf

Genre: Fiction & Literature

Publish Date: June 14, 2018

Publisher: William Collins


C. S. Lewis’ Little Book of Wisdom offers more than 300 bite-size nuggets of inspiration and wisdom from the much-loved author, philosopher, and Christian theologist. Novelist, poet, critic, scholar, Christian theologist, and best-selling author of the Narnia series, C.S. Lewis was a deep thinker and a beautiful writer. His works have become timeless classics for adults and children around the world. Here, in one concise and inspirational volume, is the essence of Lewis’ thought. This distillation of his feelings on subjects ranging from love and faith, to ethics and morality, to myth and literature will throw open the windows of the soul and provide readers with bite-size nuggets of wisdom and inspiration from one of the best-loved writers of the 20th century. This lovely little gift book will provide sustenance, wisdom, and hope for believers, seekers, artists and thinkers. It will provide an entry point for those unfamiliar with Lewis’ thought; an entry point that will make them want to further explore his works of fiction and non-fiction. Reviews ‘This charming volume of quotes from C.S. Lewis’s works includes his Christian apologia (Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, Surprised by Joy) and his fiction (The Chronicles of Narnia, The Space Trilogy). Editors Assaf and Leahy have selected brief quotations and placed them in thematic groupings relevant to modern Christians, such as “Living a Full Life with Christ” and “Recognizing Sin.” Quotes are mainly short but pack punches: “Gratitude looks to the past and love to the present; fear, avarice, lust, and ambition look ahead”; “As image and apprehension are in organic unity, so, for a Christian, are human body and human soul.” A complete Lewis bibliography is included for those interested in following up on works quoted. Also provided are several blank pages at the end of the volume for readers to jot their own thoughts. These well-chosen Lewis quotes will inspire readers and prompt them to make their own spiritual reflections.’ – Publishers Weekly About the author Andrea Kirk Assaf is an author and editor, who has had the rare privilege of covering three pontificates in the span of a decade: the pontificates of John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis. In 2002 she moved to Rome to write for Inside the Vatican magazine and several other Catholic and secular news outlets, covering World Youth Day in Toronto, the funeral of John Paul II, the election of Pope Benedict XVI, and now the popularity of the first successor of St. Peter from the New World, Pope Francis. Along with her editor-journalist-translator husband Tony Assaf and their three children, Andrea divides her days between the Eternal City of Rome and a rural homestead in Remus, Michigan. Andrea is the compiler of several books in the Little Book of Wisdom series, including Pope Francis’ Little Book of Wisdom, Pope Francis’ Little Book of Compassion, The Saints’ Little Book of Wisdom, and Jesus’ Little Book of Wisdom.

Five Pearls of Wisdom From Patti Smith’s ‘M Train’

Patti Smith has always been something of a cultural enigma. Spending the early part of her career merging poetry, blues, and punk rock, the musician, writer, and visual artist has, to date, released 11 albums (she’s currently celebrating the 40th anniversary of her debut, Horses) and, in 2010, won legions of literary admirers with her first autobiography, Just Kids. This week, she’ll no doubt capture another wave of readers with …

The Remarkable Spiritual Wisdom Of Ned Flanders From ‘The Simpsons’

Through all the mishaps, ridicule and hurricanes, the well-meaning Ned Flanders of “The Simpsons” is somehow able to preserve his connection to the divine.

But now that actor Harry Shearer, who voices Flanders and a number of other iconic “Simpsons” characters, is leaving the show, will the character ever be the same?

Showrunner Al Jean told CNN that Shearer’s characters won’t be killed off, but voiced by other actors.

Shearer has voiced the part of Flanders, Homer Simpson’s next-door neighbor, ever since the show began in 1989. The character is a friendly, compassionate and extremely devout evangelical Christian. Although Homer is generally annoyed with his neighbor’s seemingly perfect family life, Flanders has, over the years, proven to be a loyal friend.

Here are some of our favorite Flanders quotes, curated from IMDB, The Simpsons Archive, and BeliefNet.

Godspeed, neighborino. We hope the next Ned is just as dang-darn-diddly inspiring.

important things

“Dear Lord, thank you for Ziggy comics, little baby ducks and ‘Sweatin’ to the Oldies,’ volumes one, two and four.”
Ned Flanders, “Homer’s Triple Bypass”


“I’ll have a Shirley… No, a virgin… No, a children’s… Oh, what the heck? You only live once. Give me a white wine spritzer!”
Ned Flanders, “Viva Ned Flanders”


“Bless the grocer for this wonderful meat, the middleman who jacked up the price, and let’s not forget the humane but determined boys at the slaughterhouse.”
– Ned Flanders, “Homer Loves Flanders”


“Why me, Lord? Where have I gone wrong? I’ve always been nice to people! I don’t drink or dance or swear! I’ve even kept kosher, just to be on the safe side. I’ve done everything the Bible says, even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff! What more could I do?
– Ned Flanders, “Hurricane Neddy”

Watch ‘Catfish’ Guest Host Angel Haze Drop Some Serious Wisdom On This Online Liar

Here are Angel Haze’s best bits of advice from tonight’s ‘Catfish’ episode.

Ancient Wisdom For The Broken Hearted

As founder of Never Liked It Anyway, a site dedicated to breakups and moving on, I’m always on the hunt for new ways to help heal heartache. Our approach is to sell all your breakup baggage and use the money to buy something awesome, just for you. But like most problems, there are a million other solutions. This week, I sat down with Poonam Bhatia; an Ayurvedic expert and the founder of the delicious range of Ayurvedic products MaaDisha. We talked all about this ancient healing system and its approach to healing heartache.

First things first, what is Aruveyda? Simply put, it’s a traditional medical system used widely in India. It focuses on healing the mind, body, and soul from the inside out through diet, lifestyle, and attainment of a peaceful mind. The practice is an impressive 5000+ years old and literally means “Knowledge of Life.” Let’s get a little more specific.

The Ayurvedic tradition believes the human body consists of three “doshas,” or life energies, made up of different universal elements. They are: Vata (space and air), Pitta (fire and water) and Kapha (water and earth). These doshas control how our bodies work, and can negatively affect our health and wellbeing if they fall out of balance. To keep our doshas in check requires maintaining a good diet, hydration, exercise, as well as yoga and meditation.

After a breakup, the doshas are all out of whack. But Aruveyda can help to get the balance back. The first step in an Aruveydic approach is to fully face what has happened. This is not about running away from the problem and filling your days with alcoholic distractions and rebound lovers! It’s about staring your breakup in the face. Yoga and meditation are tools to help you confront what has happened; and also help bring perspective, release your emotional baggage and re-energize your mind.


With meditation and yoga as an essential foundation in accepting what has happened, Bhatia had some other suggestions that help you continue the healing process. She insists that you must find time to love and reconnect with yourself. The logic being, you must first heal and love yourself before you can love another. Here are some tips to help you do just that:

1. Do something for yourself every day.
This could be as simple as taking a bath, watching a good movie or whipping up a meal that your ex didn’t particularly like! It’s all about you — and what you love — and reconnecting with that.

2. Soak Up The Love.

It’s easy to want to shrivel up in your loneliness, but it’s the worst thing to do! Allow yourself to be enveloped by the love and support of your family and friends.

3. Laugh A LOT!
Rent a funny movie, go see your favorite comedian, or just make a lunch date with your most hilarious friend. It may be a cliche, but remembering what it feels like to laugh will instantly put you in a better mood.

4. Detox Your Mind and Body.
Now’s a chance to turn over a new, healthy leaf. Focus on eating whole, real healthy foods and drinking lots of water. Clearing your body of toxins also helps to detoxify your mind. If you really want a challenge, take your detox out of the pantry and go through your makeup, household cleaners and hair products, tossing anything toxic! The bonus of this is getting to replace the toxic stuff with natural, soothing stuff. My personal favorite is MaaDisha’s Hair Mask2.

So there you have it, some ancient wisdom to help you move on from a breakup. Remember, Ayurveda is all about facing the problem and confronting your heartache. Then, you can create space for the real healing process to begin; with meditation and yoga as strong tools to help you on your way. And dont forget, you’re not alone. People have been suffering from and getting over heartaches for thousands of years!
