You look up when you wish to be exalted. And I look down because I am exalted. The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly. One repays a teacher badly if one always remains nothing but a pupil. There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy. But the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself; you lie in wait for yourself in caverns and forests. Lonely one, you are going the way to yourself! And your way goes past yourself, and past your seven devils! You will be a heretic to yourself and witch and soothsayer and fool and doubter and unholy one and villain. You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame: how could you become new, if you had not first become ashes?

Not my first time listening to it. I like Nietzsche because he makes you look at yourself and asks how you can improve yourself.

Quite simply - this book is changing my life. I am making little changes to may eating habits every day. I never thought I would say that, but may I am just at a point in my life where I am ready for change? This book basically suggests becoming a vegan; it's that simple. It explains the trappings and perils of being on insulin - which would make any one want to leave insulin alone for good. I hate being diabetic. Wish me luck.

Everyone seems to be in a rush searching for ways to weight loss nowadays. A myriad of offers covering diets, health and food supplements, physical fitness programs, and various training workshops are flooding the entire health and fitness market. All these entail costs and effort on your part and mostly turn out to be not as effective as these marketers promised in their glamorous ads. However, there’s an ongoing solution that many are resorting to nowadays. Although it is not exempted from the opinions of cynics, it is a lot better than those options being offered in the market.

I've always been interested in the cultural history of Ireland, but a lot of books I've bought aren't written to engage the listener. The author is a great storyteller, and he relays historical data and mythology in an interesting way. Even the introduction had me hooked, and that's saying a lot.

"A few light taps upon the pane made him turn to the window. It had begun to snow again. He watched sleepily the flakes, silver and dark, falling obliquely against the lamplight. The time had come for him to set out on his journey westward. Yes, the newspapers were right: snow was general all over Ireland. It was falling on every part of the dark central plain, on the treeless hills, falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and, farther westward, softly falling into the dark mutinous Shannon waves."

Truly well written. I could never get very far in Ulysses, but Dubliners showcases Joyce's incredible literary talents in a more conventional form.
