I decide to explain an example of meaning taking one of the most popular classic American book: Moby Dick by Herman Melville.
Humans spend their entire life running towards obsessions, perfection, something is not available to them because ther are simply...human. And finally they get destroyed by this "unreachable" that has a different meaning for every man. Like captain Achab, who died because of the big white whale, Moby Dick, his only purpose since the ship left Nuntacket's harbour.
He obsessively follow the whale to have his revenge (Moby Dick ate his leg during a previous hant), and he spent his entire life thinking about his revenge without living a real and full life.
-The white whale swam in front of his eyes like the obsessive incarnation of all those forces of evil by which certain profound men feel themselves being bitten into their very depths.
-But when we pursue those distant mysteries that we dream of, or torment ourselves in pursuit of that demonic ghost which sooner or later swims past all human hearts, when we thus hunt round this globe, those things bring us inside sterile labyrinths, or they leave us halfway, at the bottom.
Reading is the only addiction that doesn't hurt, and it's the best cure for the soul.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
