Love is Part X
“We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.”

I remember going to get Chinese food after church every Sunday as a kid and I would obsess with the fact that my animal according to the Chinese calendar, was the dragon.

The Confidence Gap
Could you land a plane if the pilot became incapacitated? Could you correctly use the Heimlich maneuver if someone at your table was choking? Could you give CPR if one of your friends, coworkers, or family members suddenly went into cardiac arrest? A recent study found that men were far more confident than women in their abilities - even if they lacked them - to do such critical tasks.
