18. "When our hopes for performance are not completely met, realistic optimism involves accepting what cannot now be changed, rather than condemning or second-guessing ourselves. Focusing on the successful aspects of performance (even when the success is modest) promotes positive affect, reduces self-doubt, and helps to maintain motivation (e.g., McFarland & Ross, 1982).... Nevertheless, realistic optimism does not include or imply expectations that things will improve on their own. Wishful thinking of this sort typically has no reliable supporting evidence. Instead, the opportunity-seeking component of realistic optimism motivates efforts to improve future performances on the basis of what has been learned from past performances."
Author: Sandra L. Schneider

21. "Stanislas Dehaene's work. In brief, the adolescent reader abruptly jumps from working out individual sentences and words to second-guessing; skipping laborious neural links formerly used to make prose intelligible means that brain is now free to make connections with personal experience, rather than just attempting to make sense of marks on a page or screen. Crudely put, this means that once a critical level of experience has been reached, the reader uses both hemispheres to do two or three different things with the text. He or she "inhabits" a book rather than just piecing the sentences together word-by-word."
