The second section in this book is titled Paradigms [pair-a-dimes]and principles. It is about statements and beliefs we have that are only half truths. These paradigms keep us from getting along with people. Usually, paradigms are not even true; they are assumptions.
This section also talks about what your life may be centered on, and how that effects how you live.
Here are two good quotes from the section:
If who I am is what I have and what I have is lost, then who am I?
Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you see the whole world.
-George Bernard Shaw, English playwright
