Read in January, 1971

I loved this book when I first read it in 1971, and still think highly of it. Its allegorical message is enduring, that we must look beyond the needs and desires of the immediate moment, to loftier goals, visions that inspire and lead us onward toward the best ends of this world and the world to come. Along the way, JLS teaches eloquently of the importance of personal attributes like kindness and gentleness and love. It inspired me then, and even now as I think of it, I remember the gentle tug to be better.
