More of Jim's books…
“The life of the ordinary man is the best and most prudent choice. Cease from the folly of metaphysical speculation and inquiry into origins and ends; count all this clever logic as idle talk, and pursue one end alone-how you may do what your hand finds to do, and go your way with never a passion and always a smile.”
Teiresias

Thomas Hobbes
“I often observe the absurdity of dreams, but never dream of the absurdity of my waking thoughts.”
Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan

Henry Adams
“One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim”
Henry Adams

Ryszard Kapuściński
“This is natural: one must read Herodotus's book-and every great book-repeatedly; with each reading it will reveal another layer, previously overlooked themes, images, and meanings. For within every great book there are several others.”
Ryszard Kapuściński, Travels with Herodotus

“All things in nature work silently. They come into being and possess nothing. They fulfill their function and make no claim. All things alike do their work, and then we see them subside. When they have reached their bloom each returns to its origin. Returning to their origin means rest, or fulfilling of destiny. This reversion is an eternal law. To know that is wisdom.”
Lao-Tze
