Instructions for Life

There are only so many things we can learn in one lifetime, only so many lessons we can learn with the finite years that we are allotted. It’s not enough time really. That’s why books were invented. You can take a thousand great people and learn the lessons they gleaned from their lives. If you discipline yourself and get a lot of reading done, you can become the manifestation of a thousand great people. Take what it was that made them legendary and make it a part of you. These people have left their stories, their ‘instructions for life’ so that you can get onto the fast track, so that you don’t have to do the thousands of experiments they had to do to learn what they learned.
