"I'm not depressed but know people who are and wanted to learn more about it. The beginning is a bit weird in the long preface is all about how the reader should trust the author or the solutions he is sharing in the rest of the book won't work. Oh well, I'm off to begin chapter 1." Feb 20, 2014 06:28AM

Mark Twain

Mark Twain
“Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other.”
Mark Twain

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Albert Camus
“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
Albert Camus

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
