Read “Keep Calm and Carry On”
With New Year’s resolutions to keep, thank-you notes to write, and bills to pay, 2010 is already more stressful than you’d like. Instead of throwing up your hands in defeat, look to this pocket-size book for motivational sentiments from notable figures. (The book takes its title from a slogan on a British poster during WWII.) One musing from Winston Churchill: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
