Re: What book are you all reading?

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."


Walden - Henry David Thoreau

Re: What book are you all reading?

Anyone read this book, Scream by Rohinton Mistry? I read the other books by him and loved them. I am unable to get hold of this Scream.

Re: What book are you all reading?

just love the way he writes.. it's like taking deep breaths of cold mountain air and sitting in front of a beautiful scene with all the time in the world.. to introspect and observe.. really enjoying reading walden.

Do you write poems? Do you like Jean Paul Sartre? (just curious)

I like Walden too. Its been some time since I read him though.

Re: What book are you all reading?

oh no rakhiji - i'm but a humble reader with zero to negligible literary skills.. i do enjoy a good poem now and then.

now dont be modest....

Sartre... difficult to read. But the more you read the more you will fall in love with his works. Existentialism, my favorites...i didnt complete it yet. Started years ago.
