How could I read more books?

Reblogged from: Bookloving author and publisher

Agatha Christie - a prolific reader

 

Agatha Christie read 200 books every year, while Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg gets through a book a fortnight. President Theodore Roosevelt read a book a day, and increased this to two or three when he had a quiet night. But how can mere mortals get through more?

Bullies: Small People

Reblogged from: J.D. Holiday

jdswritersblog.blogspot.com/2015/07/small-people.html

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. ~Mark Twain

A lot of young people and adults have a good idea of what bullying is because they see it every day. 

The adult bullies do all the things most people do who are decent people, BUT they bully others who do not fit into their circle of friends, relatives, and those they grew up with. They make fun of, shout and stare at, imitate, use ethnic and sexual slurs and lie about others, and teach all this to their children. 

Some of the reasons bullies pick on others are to make their friends laugh, make themselves feel power over others and show others they are someone to be feared. Their victims say they are treated to their bullying on the streets, in stores and even, YES, in church. Bullies tell others their lies about those they bully to get new followers, (more none thinkers  for themselves people,) to join them. They are a tribe.  Tribe : any aggregate of people united by ties of descent from a common ancestor, community of customs and traditions, adherence to the same leaders, etc. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tribe
Bullying happens when someone is hurt or scare by another person or group of people on purpose and the person being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself. These bullies do it to the same people over and over. We all have heard of young people and some adults who have killed themselves over being bullied. The victims sometimes need to get away and this seems to be the only way out for them.
IF YOU ARE BEING BULLIED know you’re not alone. There are people everywhere going through the same things you do every day.  It’s HARD to imagine BUT True. Bullies are small people.
