“Once, when filling out an application for a summer job, on that line next to ‘other’ under the heading of Religion, I wrote Mozart. The personnel officer was not amused, but then, I hadn’t intended it as a joke. For there was a time when I was convinced that Mozart was at least as divinely inspired as Moses, Christ, the Buddha, Lao-tzu, or Mohammed, and I suppose I still am. For in no other works of the human imagination can the divine spirit be heard more distinctly than in the miraculous music this often vulgar, unpleasant, and difficult man produced during his pathetically brief thirty-five years. Were this book to do him justice, the section devoted to Mozart’s music would take up more than half the total pages.”

Shakespeare and Great Literature
(A Lifetime of Learning, Book 5)
“Shakespeare is like life. There are almost as many ways of taking him as there are ways of living. From the child lost in one of his stories as retold by Charles and Mary Lamb, to the old man turning to his works for fortitude and vision, every age finds in them what it needs. Every new lover of them finds himself, as every generation, from the poet’s to our own, has found itself. One by one all the philosophies have been discovered in Shakespeare’s works, and he has been charged—both as virtue and weakness—with having no philosophy. The lawyer believes he must have been a lawyer, the musician a musician, the Catholic a Catholic, the Protestant a Protestant. Never was there a more protean genius. Whether his dramas should be taken as plays or as literature has been disputed. But surely they should be taken as both. Acted, or seen on the stage, they disclose things hidden to the reader. Read, they reveal what no actor or theater can convey.”
—Harold C. Goddard, The Meaning of Shakespeare
“This is a wonderful book for meditation and contemplation. This work consists of short sayings for reflection. A reoccurring theme seems to be that we all are our own path back to God and are in the process of becoming, as we learn about love and service.” —Rick
“This is a book filled with one-line sentences of wise concepts and thought-provoking words. One made me laugh out loud: “‘It’s time to become the person you wished others would be.'”
