Zooey Deschanel could endorse special copies of the book doodled up with unicorns, mushrooms and cat eyeglasses. Hey gang! Feminism is cool! Sexism is a drag. Let's dance like robots, like lady robots!
If you're a regular O reader, you already know of my travails building a school from the ground up in South Africa. From finding the right leadership to putting together a staff to selecting every single student, it's been a solid five-year learning curve.
I looked at her ballet slippers on a shelf -- the ones she wore when she was 3 of 4. When her biggest concerns were which book we'd read before bed. I felt old. Worthless. Uncertain. And pretty uncomfortable as I lay there in silence. Until she spoke three words.
Americans saw our troops at 4 a.m. Afghanistan time standing at attention while our national anthem was sung in balmy New Orleans and while a driving snowstorm was battering their tents at Camp Courage.
If you use discipline and determination it will guide you to success. These strategies are what are followed by many of the most successful people in the world and can help you be successful as well.
Creating art is revealing one's soul to the world. Unconsciously I believed if my gift wasn't celebrated, I had no value. Seeking validation from the outside is like trying to fill a cup with a hole in it.
I believe in comebacks and I believe in forgiveness, but they can't happen in the absence of humility, empathy, and genuine remorse. Lance Armstrong has yet to demonstrate any of those things.
The yogic practice of truthfulness, called asteya, refers to abstention from falsehoods -- either expressed to others or experienced within -- in favor of that which abides by nature's way.
'30 Rock' may be ending, but we'll always remember what we learned from Tina Fey's character.
The Oprah Winfrey Network is not only about Oprah, but she is the foundation. When a foundation does not do what it is designed to do -- provide support and structure -- the house can not stand.
"Whether you are a CEO or a secretary, self-employed or unemployed, rich or poor, a 20-something or a 60-something, a master at the task or a first-timer, none of those labels matter when you are serving. I like to think of service as a great equalizer."
I spotted a huge "teaching moment" while listening to Lance Armstrong's controversial confessions to Oprah the other night.
Our faculty spend endless hours searching for ways to teach today's college students about honor and integrity, about the importance of embracing an honor system that abhors lying, cheating and stealing. Armstrong is the latest poster boy for dishonorable behavior.
Livestrong will survive and thrive. The millions and millions of cancer survivors and caregivers globally will also thrive because thrive is what we do. But Armstrong's children deserve more than anyone in this entire story.
My goodness, we have such huge budget deficits, say the deficit hawks and bond vigilantes (who sing the same basic tune). Because deficits continue to grow, inflation is just around the corner. This means their thinking is even scarier.
Is there really one person who can depict it all without contending with their fallible human vulnerabilities? There must be a healthier way to believe in heroism all together.
