This is my reading journal.

"Everybody has a map, a model of the world in that space between our years as formed generally in the early years and during the teens... An individual who makes maps of the human experience -- and we all do that consciously or unconsciously -- makes it with information, or with tools. And that information consists of the value systems, the tensions, the successes and the failures, the dreams and the terrors of the past."
