Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.  - Cavett Robert The New Year Celebration, heralded all over the world with fireworks, brings eternal hope for good things to usher in a new year. Why should a few minutes into this year change the way we conduct our lives. Good intentions are good, but commitment, discipline and focus are better.

If we haven’t lived a certain way until now, each additional year makes it more difficult. Is it within us to change? Absolutely. We can learn from therapy, "How To” books, and a lot of soul searching, but we can also learn life lessons from people who share their “secrets.”

Oral biographies, brief chapters, from Particular Passions: Talks with Women Who Have Shaped our Times, available on all e-platforms, will inspire anyone with nuggets of wisdom and are a bargain for $.99 and wonderful stories to boot.
