Choose great books

If you want to improve what you get out of reading, you have to choose great books.

There are only a few new books that might prove valuable, but most will be forgotten. So instead, let time filter the good books. Find the books that stood the test of time.

Time is limited, so direct it to knowledge that lasts. Read old books. Read the best ones twice.

Reading Books Is Like Changing Your Past

Reading Books Is Like Changing Your Past

  • Gaining knowledge isn’t the only reason we have to read books.
  • A good book read with curiosity and an open mind can change our life.
  • Reading books is like updating the software inside your brain, and a good book gives us new ways to interpret our past and present life.

Bruce Lee

“The skill and knowledge attained must be 'forgotten' so that you can float comfortably in the void without blockages. Learning is important, but do not let yourself be enslaved. (…) Any technique, however valuable and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind becomes obsessed with it.”...
