I gave it a 5 for the sheer grip of a lifestyle of despair, addiction, and general screwiness. It was well written. My main question, how did he survive with all those chemicals in his body. What a life of desperation for all concerned. This is not a ...more

excellent; i thought it was going to be a wise-guy, snide humor type of thing. Instead it was wide-ranged in view, authentic in the telling, informative and just plain wonderful. Couldn't put it down.

Highly recommend.

Bahá'u'lláh
“Do not be content with showing friendship in words alone, let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path.”
Baha'u'llah

Bahá'u'lláh
“Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.”
Baha'u'llah

Bahá'u'lláh
“Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit there from.”
Baha'u'llah

Bahá'u'lláh
“All peoples and nations are of one family, the children of one Father, and should be to one another as brothers and sisters.”
Bahá'u'lláh

Bahá'u'lláh
“That one indeed is a man who, today, dedicateth himself to the service of the entire human race. The Great Being saith: Blessed and happy is he that ariseth to promote the best interests of the peoples and kindreds of the earth. It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.”
Baha'u'llah; Abdul-Baha; Shogi Effendi
