How do I choose?

I've been asked how I choose the books and quotes that get included in the 1+1+1 for 365 project. 

The answer is simple but not necessarily easy:  there is some method in my madness, but not a rigid one.

Let me try to explain some of what has emerged until now and as I see it at the moment:

1+1+1 for 365 day 7: Thoughts about Pi


What you think means more than anything else in your life. More than what you earn, more than where you live, more than your social position, and more than what anyone else may think about you. - George Adams.
Life of Pi  by Yann Martel
I swooned about this book for days after I read it.   The story about the boy named Pi who ends up in a small lifeboat boat with a hyena, a zebra, a orang-utan and a Bengal tiger called Richard Parker after a shipwreck that kills his family and the rest of the inhabitants (the family zoo). The book tells the story of their lone journey on the vast ocean full of sharks.  I won't spoil the rest for those who have not read it.
