“In the long run men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, though they should fail immediately, they had better aim at something high.” – Henry David Thoreau, Walden Pond (From one of the downloaded classics that I am told is not read any longer.) How can such wisdom fail to inspire? When I told my friend that I had downloaded the works of Aristotle, I was looked at askance, as if I had confessed to an odd eccentricity. It is a shame that kids are forced to read the classics before they are ready for them. The good ones begin to strike home when you are in your 40s, if you are still able to read a book by then.
