Sometimes caregivers just need to refresh their emotional sensibilities or overcome physical weariness. They need to reclaim their sense of mission and motivation. That’s where this book comes in. As curator and editor, I’ve discovered potent and inspiring thoughts can come from authors, philosophers, teachers, actors and comedians, athletes, and (to no one’s surprise) caregivers themselves. This book started with me collecting quotes that made me more keenly aware of the type of caregiver I wanted and needed to become. It grew from that into a more detailed, organized compilation of qualities and characteristics I think most caregivers are likely to aspire to (or in some cases, hope to subdue). You’ll find hundreds of quotations here on in about 80 categories. They can help shift an attitude or motivate in a way that fosters a greater sense of satisfaction and success as a caregiver.
The earth is dying but the spaceships that people are dying to get on are going to planets that freedom is lost. Relaa and Macbeth are teenagers who fought their way onto a spaceship only to later realize that slavery is the only reality of earthlings on all of the planets that earthlings have been taken to. Rumors of distant rebellions bring encouragement to Relaa and Macbeth but their paths on the planet are very different. Joining the rebellion of earthlings seems perfect because earthlings are being massacred so there is no time to waste. An epic science fiction story for young adults and adults who love science fiction, aliens and other worlds far away.
