Brain Pickings is a well-written website authored by Maria Popova, who writes that it’s a “free Sunday digest of the week’s most interesting and inspiring articles across art, science, philosophy, creativity, children’s books, and other strands of our search for truth, beauty, and meaning.”

I’ve enjoyed countless articles and often follow Ms. Popova’s suggestions for thought-provoking books to read. Click here for a sampling of Maria’s writing. If you have time and interest, read each of her core beliefs, collected thoughtfully over more than a decade, and see if any resonate with you.  If not, what core beliefs do guide your life?
