The Princess Bride is the 1987 satirical adventure movie that had to wait for the Internet and DVDs to become the most quoted of all cult classics. The Princess Bride and Philosophy is for all those who have wondered about the true meaning of “Inconceivable!,” why the name “Roberts” uniquely inspires fear, and whether it’s truly a miracle to restore life to someone who is dead, but not necessarily completely dead. The Princess Bride is filled with people trying to persuade each other of various things, and invites us to examine the best methods of persuasion. It’s filled with promises, some kept and some broken, and cries out for philosophical analysis of what makes a promise and why promises should be kept. It’s filled with beliefs which go beyond the evidence, and philosophy can help us to decide when such beliefs can be justified. It’s filled with political violence, both by and against the recognized government, and therefore raises all the issues of political philosophy. Westley, Buttercup, Prince Humperdinck, Inigo Montoya, the giant Fezzik, and the Sicilian Vizzini keep on re-appearing in these pages, as examples of philosophical ideas. Is it right for Montoya to kill the six-fingered man, even though there is no money in the revenge business? What’s the best way to deceive someone who knows you’re trying to deceive him? Are good manners a kind of moral virtue? Could the actions of the masked man in black truly be inconceivable even though real? What does ethics have to say about Miracle Max’s pricing policy? How many shades of meaning can be conveyed by “As You Wish”?

An engagingly contemporary approach to Buddhism—through the lens of an iconic film and its memorable characters Humorous yet spiritually rigorous in the tradition of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and The Tao of Pooh, drawing from pop culture and from personal experience, The Dharma of “The Princess Bride” teaches us how to understand and navigate our most important personal relationships from a twenty-first-century Buddhist perspective. Friendship. Romance. Family. These are the three areas Ethan Nichtern delves into, taking as departure points the indelible characters from Rob Reiner’s perennially popular film—Westley, Fezzik, Vizzini, Count Rugen, Princess Buttercup, and others—as he also draws lessons from his own life and his work as a meditation teacher. Nichtern devotes the first section of the book to exploring the dynamics of friendship. Why do people become friends? What can we learn from the sufferings of Inigo Montoya and Fezzik? Next, he leads us through all the phases of illusion and disillusion we encounter in our romantic pursuits, providing a healthy dose of lightheartedness along the way by sharing his own Princess Buttercup List and the vicissitudes of his dating life as he ponders how we idealize and objectify romantic love. Finally, Nichtern draws upon the demands of his own family history and the film’s character the Grandson to explore the dynamics of “the last frontier of awakening,” a reference to his teacher Chogyam Trungpa’s claim that it’s possible to be enlightened everywhere except around your family. With The Dharma of “The Princess Bride” in hand, we can set out on the path to contemporary Buddhist enlightenment with the most important relationships in our lives.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR… He was everything Tiffany Blair wanted. He was danger. He was love…and she was meant to spend forever with him. Trouble was, Kingman Marshall insisted marriage was for fools. But for better, for worse, Tiffany vowed she'd walk down the aisle as King's bride. King was equally determined to stay away from Tiffany. He was too old, too jaded and too burdened with secrets to indulge in fantasies of happily-ever-after with a sheltered princess. But if he succeeded in pushing her away, could he truly live without her?

Excerpt: Peter Edward Cook (17 November 1937 9 January 1995) was a British satirist, writer and comedian. An extremely influential figure within British comedy, he is widely regarded as the leading light of the British satire boom of the 1960s. He has been described by Stephen Fry as 'the funniest man who ever drew breath'. Cook is very closely associated with the anti-establishment style of comedy that first emerged in Britain and the USA in the late 1950s. Cook was born at "Shearbridge," Middle Warberry Road, Torquay, Devon, the only son and eldest of the three children of Alexander Edward (Alec) Cook (1906-1984), a colonial civil servant, and his wife Ethel Catherine Margaret, n e Mayo (1908-1994). He was educated at Radley College and later Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he read French and German. Cook meant to become a career diplomat, but unfortunately Britain "had run out of colonies," as he put it. Although largely politically apathetic for most of his life, he did join Cambridge University Liberal Club. It was at Pembroke that he performed and wrote comedy sketches as a member of the prestigious Cambridge Footlights Club, of which he became President in 1960. While still at university, Cook wrote professionally for Kenneth Williams, for whom he created a successful West End revue show called One Over the Eight, before finding prominence in his own right as part of a four man group performing a ...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=23547

Once, in the far off, distant land of Flaundia, there lived an exiled king on a humble property. The former king had two children: a son Thomas, and a daughter Daisy. The king, now known only as Conrad de Fleurre, was a simple gentleman of means. He loved his children and only wanted the best for them. One day Thomas would run his estate while Daisy would take charge of the household until she married a fine gentleman and had her own offspring. At the moment, though, Daisy was barely a woman. She had just turned eighteen, and she preferred spending her days sitting under a tree and reading a book. Many times Daisy''s father accused her of having her head in the clouds. Daisy did not refute her father, for she dreamed of exotic lands and exciting people based on the stories she had read. Thomas assumed Daisy waited for a handsome man to sweep her off her feet. Part of what Thomas believed was correct. But Daisy did not long for a man; rather, she hid her growing feelings for a young servant girl named Chelsey.Chelsey was the de Fleurre cook''s daughter. She and her mother had started working for the exiled king''s family a few months after they had arrived in Flaundia. Chelsey was only a girl herself when she''d first met Conrad and his two small children. Thomas didn''t appeal to Chelsey at all, but the young Daisy, with her shiny blonde curls and beautifully shy smile, made Chelsey''s stomach twist and turn in ways she couldn''t explain. While her mother Wilda welcomed their good fortune for finding stable employment, Chelsey tried to seek out Daisy''s company. She watched the other girl closely and longed to be her friend. And as the years went by, Chelsey''s feelings for her employer''s daughter changed from that of friendship to companionship, and finally something much deeper that nestled inside her heart. Those feelings... that need, had turned not only into love, but also into passion and desire.Chelsey craved for Daisy much like a man and woman wanted one another. But she knew this could never be. Her love was a forbidden one. So, Chelsey hid her feelings from the unaware Daisy, silently yearning for the young girl who was slowly becoming a woman before Chelsey''s eyes.One cloudy spring morning, Chelsey had just come back from an errand her mother had sent her on. There were no eggs left for Wilda to make a quiche for luncheon. Chelsey volunteered to go into town to purchase these ingredients, for she enjoyed being out in the open and away from her normal, mundane chores. As she walked down the lane that would lead her back home, Chelsey whistled a bawdy tune. She had learned it from one of the serving wenches at the local pub she liked to go to most nights. She glanced up at the sky and noticed that storm clouds were rolling in. There would surely be a downpour to follow. She hurried along, not wanting to be caught out in the rain.As Chelsey walked past the stable, a woman''s voice rang out."Chelsey! Please come here this instant. I need your help."Chelsey stopped and took a deep breath. She tugged on her braid, tightening the black ribbon that pulled her hair away from her face. Lately, Daisy had been acting shyer around her than usual. Many times Daisy''s stuttering grew worse whenever Chelsey was in the same room. This confounded her in so many ways."Hurry, Chelsey!" Daisy cried out again, sounding more agitated than before."Coming, Miss Daisy!" Chelsey called out and walked into the stable.It was very dark inside the shelter, for the sun had completely disappeared behind the clouds. There was no stablehand in sight, only the petite Daisy wearing a light green riding outfit and holding a riding crop.Chelsey stared at Daisy, who was turned away, standing on her toes as she reached for a saddle lying on the shelf. Chelsey smiled as Daisy grunted and hopped on one foot. She set down the basket of eggs and went over to her mistress.As Chelsey''s boots made a scraping sound across the sawdust-covered ground, Daisy turned and pressed

Daisy de Fleurre, an exiled princess from a faraway land, longs for true love. She almost experienced that at the tender age of eighteen, when she and her servant Chelsey engaged in a smoldering love affair one brief summer before they were separated forever. Eight years later, Daisy is engaged to a man who wants to offer her the world. But she still longs for the woman she has never forgotten. The dastardly lady pirate C.W. Dread, lives for revenge against Lord Humphrey, the evil man who murdered her family. She lays plans to kidnap Humphrey’s fiancée, hold her for ransom, and introduce her to the delights of the flesh. Then her revenge will be complete! But Dread is in for a shock when her prisoner is a ghost from her past who she once adored deep down to her very core. Lord Humphrey will stop at nothing to destroy Chelsey, and possess Daisy for his own nefarious means. Unaware of what awaits them on the open seas, the two former lovers realize their passion, although once forbidden, is as intense and turbulent as the ocean Chelsey calls home.
