For anyone searching for their true self, the touching story of how a square finds a shape all his own. Circles were smooth and round. Good at rolling, spinning, and pushing. They all turned together to make things go. Squares were sturdy and even. Good at stacking, steadying, and measuring. They all fit together to make things stay.
In a world where everybody is a shape and every shape has a specific job, Sam is a square who longs for softer corners, rounder edges, and the ability to roll like a circle. With playful imagery, this story considers identity and nonconformity through the eyes of Sam, a square struggling to find his true place in the world.

In his debut cookbook, Newton brings to life the regional distinctions and new influences that make up the changing face of Southern cuisine—a category of cooking as cutting-edge as any other in the world. As Newton explains, the pork and beans he grew up eating in the mountains of the Ozarks is very different from the shellfish-heavy food of the Lowcountry or the Cajun-influenced fare along the Gulf Coast.
And though often overlooked, historically underrecognized populations have constantly reimagined what the Southern table looks like with their culinary contributions: Enslaved African cooks perfected fried chicken, Middle Eastern communities helped introduce spices such as sumac to the Mississippi Delta, and Korean and Mexican immigrants continue to reinvent the grilled meats and pickled vegetables that Southerners know and love.
To Newton, Southern cuisine delights because it is delicious and, above all, endlessly dynamic. In this cookbook, he brings this exciting evolution of flavors to your table.

And there are quotes specifically designed to inspire entrepreneurs. Tweet them, share them, but most important, use them to motivate you to reach the heights you dream of reaching. What sets the successful ones apart is their amazing persistence. Amos "If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary. Make that one idea your life--think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
I don't know what that word means. I'm happy. But success, that goes back to what in somebody's eyes success means. For me, success is inner peace. That's a good day for me. You create them. I've just found 10, ways that won't work. Rockefeller "Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. Use what you have. Do what you can.
As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work. Watson "All progress takes place outside the comfort zone. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
See a Problem?
Catch the trade winds in your sails. I have never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down. Kettering "If you genuinely want something, don't wait for it--teach yourself to be impatient. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something--your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. Harv Eker "Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.
Don't wish it were easier; wish you were better. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it. I want to have lived the width of it as well. Habit is what keeps you going. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. Those things are what happen when you don't have a plan. You can't just accept the ones you like. Self-growth is tender; it's holy ground. There's no greater investment. Chesterton "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Edison "The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize. They vary in their desires to reach their potential. It's quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes.
Make all you can. Because remember, that's where you will find success. Watson "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. Sure, there's an element of talent you should probably possess. But if you just stick around long enough, eventually something is going to happen. I'm thinking something along the lines of, 'Geez, he was just here a minute ago. Liking what you do is happiness. Be excited about what you want. It comes from not finishing what they've started. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself.
Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you. Everything is perfect either for our growth or our enjoyment. You seek problems because you need their gifts. Baruch "Our capacity to draw happiness from aesthetic objects or material goods in fact seems critically dependent on our first satisfying a more important range of emotional or psychological needs, among them the need for understanding, for love, expression, and respect. That thought is the problem. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it. Happiness never decreases by being shared. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, then there will be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. In the adaptability and ease with which we experience change, lies our happiness and freedom. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness.
Play with abandon. Choose with no regret. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is. It is a form of energy that tends to make us more of who we already are, whether it's greedy or loving. There is nothing to forgive. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. It is appreciating what you have. Happiness is wanting what you get. Your creativity and happiness brings money. Being happy is being in love with that momentary experience.
Love is happiness with what you see.
So love and happiness really are the same thing I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to the light I have. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. It's not what you're gonna get in the end--it's not the final curtain--it's really in the doing it, and loving what you're doing.
Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character. Their joy is being who they are, not in being better than someone else. But the truly dire consequences in our lives come from avoiding things that we need to learn about or discover. Of the things you have, select the best and then reflect how eagerly you would have sought them if you did not have them. Petit Senn "To be content means that you realize you contain what you seek. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory. You can't keep blaming somebody else for your dysfunction.
Life is really about moving on. Barr "View your life from your funeral: Looking back at your life experiences, what have you accomplished? What would you have wanted to accomplish but didn't? What were the happy moments? What were the sad?

What would you do again, and what wouldn't you do? The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. Stevenson II "Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be. He is the one that gets people to do the greatest things. Or they won't. Who cares? Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.
A leader isn't someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to others that they may have the strength to stand on their own.
