...On the shoulders of GIANTS
One of the central philosophies of A General Degree is read good, read often. Books are the collected and edited thoughts of some of our smartest men and women who have lived thus far. If life is about living well, then it would behoove us to read their great works. Need a long philosophical discussion with no one around? Read Plato. Want to hear a great story? Read Neil Gaiman. There as many books as there are topics and it is unfortunate that we spend a lot of our time in society trying to improve ourselves by improving our image rather than improve ourselves by improving our thoughts. A good life, like good writing, is the result of clear thinking.
