When Lady Evelyn Waverly opens a "no-kill" shelter to rehabilitate the dogs she and her friends rescue from London's illegal dogfight pits, she jeopardizes more than just her marriage to the Duke of Chathamworthshire. Gripping and provocative, the sequel to the award-nominated Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog probes deeper into the lives of LIta Eitner-England's beloved characters. In 1836, Lisette St. Germaine begins a new life at Chathamworthshire, infuriating the Duchess' arrogant niece, Beatrice Stewart. Illiterate Matthew Connors, agonizing over the future of his orphaned siblings, joins the Waverlys' staff as an apprentice dog trainer after a heated confrontation with the Neemy Brothers, further fueling Beatrice's resentment. Trevor Sheffield, one of the Duke's most promising young trainers, thinks the Duchess has gone too far when she rescues Bullmina's former rival, the undefeated Pit Bull, Cassius. Brooding and doubtful, Trevor finds himself at odds with his mentor, head trainer Andrew Cameron, when he is ordered to supervises the re-training of the incorrigible Cassius. Chaos soon erupts at the estate, endangering the lives of the Duke's most prized Bulldogs. Because of Bullmina's courage, Lisette, Beatrice and Matthew's destinies are changed forever, and they discover that they have more in common with each other than they ever imagined. The rescuers become the rescued when strength and forgiveness come from the most unlikely sources. Envy, resentment and guilt give way to redemption and a new sense of purpose - all inspired by one aging, red brindle Bulldog and her unforgettable legacy. Every chapter is beautifully illustrated by Leslie Hoops-Wallace, and the book includes real-life rescue stories, photos, and interviews.

What kind of life would you live if you didn’t allow your fears to hold you back? The Courage Habit offers a powerful program to help you conquer your inner critic, work toward your highest aspirations, and build a courageous community. Are your fears preventing you from living the life you truly want? Do you ever wish that you had a better job, lived in a different city, or had more authentic and nurturing relationships? Many people believe that they would do more, accomplish more, and feel more fulfilled if only they could rid themselves of that fearful inner voice that constantly whispers, “you can’t do it.” In The Courage Habit, certified life coach Kate Swoboda offers a unique program based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you act courageously in spite of fear. By identifying your fear triggers, releasing yourself from your past experiences, and acting on what you truly value, you can make courage a daily habit. Using a practical four-part program, you’ll learn to understand the emotions that arise when fears are triggered, and to pause and evaluate your emotional state before you act. You’ll discover how to listen without attachment to the self-defeating messages of your inner critic, understand the critic’s function, and implement respectful boundaries so that your inner voice no longer controls your behavior. You’ll reframe self-limiting life narratives that can—without conscious awareness—dictate your day-to-day decisions. And finally, you’ll nurture more authentic connections with family, friends, and community in order to find support and reinforce the life changes you’re making. If you feel like something is holding you back from landing your dream job, moving to a new city, having a satisfying love relationship, or simply taking advantage of all life has to offer—and if you have a sneaking suspicion that that something is you—then this one-of-a-kind guide will show you how to finally break free from self-doubt and start living your best life.

This volume contains new translations of two dialogues of Plato, the Protagoras and the Meno, together with explanatory notes and substantial interpretive essays. Robert C. Bartlett's translations are as literal as is compatible with sound English style and take into account important textual variations. Because the interpretive essays both sketch the general outlines of the dialogues and take up specific theoretical or philosophic difficulties, they will be of interest not only to those reading the dialogues for the first time but also to those already familiar with them.The Protagoras and the Meno are linked by the attention each pays to the idea of virtue: the latter dialogue focuses on the fundamental Socratic question, "What is virtue?"; the former on the specific virtue of courage, especially in its relation to wisdom. An appendix contains a short extract from Xenophon's Anabasis of Cyrus that vividly portrays the figure of Meno.

The Courage To Become

Does life have meaning if one rejects belief in God? This book responds affirmatively to that question. Paul Kurtz, America's leading secular humanist, provides a powerful defense of the humanist alternative, rejecting both religious spirituality and nihilism. In this inspirational book, Kurtz outlines the basic virtues of the secular humanist outlook. These virtues include "courage," not simply to be or to survive, but to overcome and "become"; that is, to fulfill our highest aspirations and ideals in the face of obstacles. The two other virtues Kurtz identifies are "cognition" (reason and science in establishing truth) and "moral caring" (compassion and benevolence in our relationships with others.) Kurtz offers an optimistic appraisal of the human prospect and outlines a philosophy both for the individual and the global community.
