Letters to His Children – History (Academic) Ebooks

LETTERS TO HIS CHILDREN THEODORE ROOSEVELT These early letters are marked by the same quality that distinguishes all his letters to his children. From the youngest to the eldest, he wrot e to them al ways as his equals. As they advanced in li fe the mental level of intercourse was raised as they grew in intelligence and knowledge, but it was always as equals that he addressed them. He was always their playm ate and boon compani on, whether they were toddling infants taking their first faltering steps, or growing schoolboys, or youths standi ng at the threshol d of life. Their games were his gam es, their joys those of his own heart.

Download Ebook All Against All by Nathan Allen

Download Ebook All Against All by Nathan Allen – Chapter 1 : A few facts about the animal kingdom: The majority of conflicts that occur in the wild are not between an animal and its predator.  They are more often between two members of the same species. A low-status chimpanzee has more to fear from a domineering alpha male than a leopard. Most of the scars and bite marks an animal suffers throughout the course of its life will be caused by an attack from one of its own, rather than a hungry predator. The apex creature of a species is rewarded with food, mates, status, and the opportunity to pass along its genes. The weaker of the pack are left to squabble among themselves for their share of the leftovers. Might is right, and the weakest eat last. The Soldiers Memorial Hall was a nondescript community center situated on[…]

Ebook Where Did My Life Go? A Towering Experience by K.D. Sanders

After my practice, we went to the Rainbow Bar & Grill to go hang out and so I could show off my brand new famous friend. I was pretty good friends with one of the bartenders and introduced her to Bob, the original drummer for Lynyrd Skynyrd. I pulled her to the side and told her that I didn’t know for sure if he was who he said he was. So we were sitting at the bar I was drinking beer and Bob was drinking MILK! I was like, milk? You’re a fuckin’ rock star and you’re drinking milk? I guess Bob was done with his rock star drinking days. He didn’t care that I was drinking beer, he was happy with his milk. So we’re hanging out and every chance I got, I would tell people that Bob was the original drummer for Lynyrd Skynyrd and they would be[…]

Ebook All My Friends Are Characters by Emma Wilkins

I ask Marie what life was like for her when she was growing up. She had a happy childhood. As for her teenage years, “it’s the same for everyone”, she says.

Life in the village was “very free”. Marie remembers fighting with her younger brother—not with punches, but with words. “I would say, not necessarily a bad word but something like, ah, clever, which would annoy him even worse.” One of her brother’s favourite games was to have Marie lower something down to him from their balcony, a spoon, for example, and pretend it was a fish. As he tried to catch it she would jiggle it around and watch him in amusement. “He wouldn’t get bored of it,[…]
