it was amazing

I read this when I was about ten and went around quoting things out of it and feeling immensely proud of myself. Going back to it at 31, it's a lot more interesting now. The study of morality as evidenced in here is quite compelling, although of course some of his maxims have to be tossed out in today's social context.
