A humorous and philosophical trip through life, from the Times-bestselling author of Travels with Epicurus. As a young college student studying philosophy, Klein filled a notebook with short quotes from the world's greatest thinkers, hoping to find some guidance on how to live the best life he could. Now, from the vantage point of his eighth decade, Klein revisits the wisdom he relished in his youth with this collection of philosophical gems, adding new ones that strike a chord. From Epicurus to Emerson and Camus to Reinhold Nieburh-whose words provide the title of this book-each pithy extract is annotated with Klein's inimitable charm and insights. He tackles life's biggest questions, leaving us entertained and enlightened.
