Profound Paragraphs: WISO
“A rogue does not laugh in the same way that an honest man does; a hypocrite does not shed the tears of a man of good faith. All falsehood is a mask; and however well made the mask may be, with a little attention we may always succeed in distinguishing it from the true face.”
I know I just did a “What I’m Sipping On” but I’ve been managing my time well lately which in turn means, more time for reading!

by Alexandre Dumas

Rated: 4.4 on amazon.com
This book despite it’s sexism and class/rank subjugation (which was clearly acceptable at the time in which it was written) is still a very well written and entertaining read. Dumas has a knack for adventure that enthralls me. However I also found a few subtle gems of wisdom among the escapades.
