I'm happy today. Do you know why? Because I finally finished this crappy book. Optimistically, I kept going, thinking there might be some interesting nugget that made the slog worthwhile. Sadly, optimism rarely pays out, and didn't this time.

“The outsiders stood always in awe in front of what they had surnamed the Celestial City with Mighty Walls. The great mystery that cloaked its very foundations kept impelling the youth of Crotona, as well as those of the adjacent cities, to seek admittance. In spite of the difficult rules of the Master, curiosity goaded many to venture inside its secrecy, with a passionate aspiration to discover the unknown. Yet, to enroll, young men and women should be introduced by their parents. Sometimes, it was one of the assigned Masters of the Pythagorean Society who assumed the introduction.
