I found this little book on the bargain rack at Barnes and Noble. It was marked down to $4.99. Four dollars and ninety nine cents plus tax for access to the combined wisdom of our Founding Fathers - men of the Enlightenment, all too human, but wise beyond their time. At a leisurely pace, and with many interruptions, I was able to read it cover to cover in a couple of days.
My wish, as we celebrate our nation's independence, is for more people to read for themselves the content of this little book; for more people to stop trusting self-serving politicians or bombastic commentators, and seek out truth, wherever it may lie. And then, armed with the truth, change themselves.
“This above all: To thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
