    A bittersweet story that begins with the delightful discovery of a famous birth mother. 
    Before film star Karen Black became an icon, she gave up a newborn daughter to adoption. While Karen's career led her to Hollywood fame, her daughter Diane grew up near Chicago. For five decades they knew nothing about each other. Then Illinois opened their sealed adoption records, and Diane sent for her original birth certificate. She was amazed to discover that her birth mother was an iconic actress in the '70s and a cult horror star in the '80s and beyond. Karen starred in prominent films such as Easy Rider, The Great Gatsby, Airport 1975, Burnt Offerings and the TV movie Trilogy of Terror. 
    This heartfelt memoir takes the listener into Diane's adopted life without her birth mother, and follows Karen and Diane through their one year together as Karen bravely battles cancer. This remarkable story is a testament to the power of the mother-child bond, the importance of our roots, and the belief that love lasts forever. 
    Award-winning Christina Delaine's exceptional narration captures Karen's vivacious spirit and the story's emotional moments with authenticity. 
    "This book took me by surprise with emotional timbre, honest emotions, and depth of feeling. Through immersive writing, descriptive narration, and stark imagery, Finding Karen Black expertly weaves a mother-daughter story, unlike anything I've read before." --N. N. Light

    This is a 3-book bundle, which addresses various subtopics, including but not limited to these: 
      
      
    Book 1: Stoicism is a concept that has been studied more and more lately. The philosophy that dates back all the way to Socrates has been significant in many people’s lives. So, today, we will expand on what stoicism is, where it originated from, and how you can use it in your life to become a better person and achieve more. 
      
    On top of that, we’ll discuss how the Golden Rule (do unto others what you would have them do unto you) applies and is directly related to the idea of stoicism. We’ll go over what is meant by “logos” and why so many businesspeople and entrepreneurs have studied stoicism to improve their responses and results to changes in the market and their negotiations. 
      
      
      
      
    Book 2: What are the four virtues of stoicism? 
      
    In this book, you will find fascinating thoughts on courage, temperance, justice, and wisdom. We will touch on these topics and help you understand why they are so important. This can make a huge difference in your life. 
      
    Stoicism can also help people react better to each other in family relationships. 
      
      
    Book 3: A lot of people have heard of stoicism, some even know what it is, but the question is: How do you become more stoic? 
    The answer to this question lies at the heart of this book. You will learn of new methods and insights to accomplish this. Furthermore, some very important quotes about stoicism will be revealed. And a schedule will be given that you can adhere to, if you want, and stick to a routine that enables you to practice a stoic attitude in your daily life.

    Around the turn of the nineteenth century, a steady stream of young German poets and thinkers coursed to the town of Jena to make history. The French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars had dealt a one-two punch to the dynastic system. Confidence in traditional social, political, and religious norms had been replaced by a profound uncertainty that was as terrifying for some as it was exhilarating for others. Nowhere was the excitement more palpable than among the extraordinary group of poets, philosophers, translators, and socialites who gathered in this Thuringian village.Jena became the place for the young and intellectually curious, the site of a new departure, of philosophical disruption. Influenced by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, then an elder statesman and artistic eminence, the leading figures among the disruptors—the translator August Wilhelm Schlegel; the philosophers Friedrich "Fritz" Schlegel and Friedrich Schelling; the dazzling, controversial intellectual Caroline Schlegel, married to August; Dorothea Schlegel, a poet and translator, married to Fritz; and the poets Ludwig Tieck and Novalis—resolved to rethink the world, to establish a republic of free spirits. They didn't just question inherited societal traditions; with their provocative views of the individual and of nature, they revolutionized our understanding of freedom and reality.

    “This splendid reference describes every woman in Jewish and Christian scripture . . . monumental” (Library Journal).   In recent decades, many biblical scholars have studied the holy text with a new focus on gender. Women in Scripture is a groundbreaking work that provides Jews, Christians, or anyone fascinated by a body of literature that has exerted a singular influence on Western civilization a thorough look at every woman and group of women mentioned in the Bible, whether named or unnamed, well known or heretofore not known at all.   They are remarkably varied—from prophets to prostitutes, military heroines to musicians, deacons to dancers, widows to wet nurses, rulers to slaves. There are familiar faces, such as Eve, Judith, and Mary, seen anew with the full benefit of the most up-to-date results of biblical scholarship. But the most innovative aspect of this book is the section devoted to the many females who in the scriptures do not even have names.   Combining rigorous research with engaging prose, these articles on women in the Hebrew Bible, the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books, and the New Testament will inform, delight, and challenge readers interested in the Bible, scholars and laypeople alike. Together, these collected histories create a volume that takes the study of women in the Bible to a new level.
