My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.

Michael J. Fox

Michael J. Fox first grabbed the attention of America with his portrayal of Alex P. Keaton on the 1980s sitcom "Family Ties," and he went on to star in such popular films as "Back to the Future" and "Teen Wolf." In 1998, while working on the sitcom "Spin City," Fox publicly disclosed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In the decades that followed, and despite worsening symptoms, he continued to act and do voice-over work while advocating for people living with Parkinson’s. The titles of his four books — “An Optimist Considers Mortality,” “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future,” “The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist,” and “Lucky Man” — all speak to the unique, positive predisposition that Fox brings to his life and the challenges he’s faced.

A novel worth reading is an education of the heart.

Susan Sontag

While interviewing Susan Sontag for "The Paris Review" in 1995, Edward Hirsch asked the writer and activist whether it was old-fashioned to think that the purpose of literature is to educate us about life. Sontag unequivocally confirmed that novels enlighten us. She went on to say, “[Novels enlarge] your sense of human possibility, of what human nature is, of what happens in the world.” When we read a story, we experience, on an intellectual and emotional level, the successes and failures of the characters — and we learn empathy and understanding from their stories.
