"Luckily it’s written with little numbers on the side so you can just refer to a specific sentence later because this book is dense. Like the fabled chocolate cake of Matilda; it’s tough, rich, and if I don’t die, I will probably not read another philosophy book for a good year. I found myself re-reading sections, understanding it, then closing the book and having remembered very little, but feeling so much." Dec 10, 2019 11:09AM

Phenomenal mix of his three mediums; Poetry, story telling, and art. Not particularly religious, but I still greatly enjoyed it all.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
