I wasn't familiar with Antonio Machado's work until I interviewed the translators, Mary Berg and Dennis Maloney, for my radio show.

This little pocket volume is a collection of various meditative proverbs by Antonio Machado. It is a wonderful little collection to just carry with you, dip into, and think about--almost like reading chapters of the Tao te Ching.

One of my favorite proverbs:

XLVII

Man has four things
that are no good at sea;
anchor, rudder, oars,
and the fear of going down.
