“When it comes to living, there’s no getting out alive. But books can help us survive…by passing on what is most important about being human before we perish.” — The Wall Street Journal

Books, books, books! If only we could live forever and read all of them. Of all the books I read this year, these are the three that stuck with me the most (in no particular order). I truly believe they are life-changing and well worth your time.

Books changed my life more than anything. They gave me access to thousands of years of human knowledge. For what? $15 a pop? It’s the best investment and the most one sided relationship you can ever have. — Ryan Holiday

Don’t just say you have read books. Show that through them you have learned to think better, to be a more discriminating and reflective person. Books are the training weights of the mind. They are very helpful, but it would be a bad mistake to suppose that one has made progress simply by having internalized their contents. — Epictetus
