Wordsworthy Books

Great books represent the intellectual capital of humanity over all time. Over a lifetime how many books will you read? If you read a few thousand novels over a long life, you'll have done well for yourself. So why read any book which isn't transformational? I recommend literary novels. They have the power to change your perspective of life.

Homer, Richmond Lattimore
The Satires of Horace and Persius
Horace, Aulus Persius Flaccus
"“Maybe, life is a kind of waking dream.
Maybe, it's a double-dream with a false awakening.
Maybe, the dream only becomes lucid and truly luminous given the fuller perspective of life after one's own wake.
Maybe, the pictures never stop.
Doesn't the existence of dreams and higher consciousness during the years of blackouts of a lifetime, whether longer or shorter, give us a valid premise to hope that another highly spiritual state may await our passing?”
― David B. Lentz, "For the Beauty of the Earth ""
