My second book, Pantheon, is now available. You can find out all the specific details on the book and its contents by clicking on the “books” tab in this website’s home page, and then selecting “Pantheon.”
What is the book about? I am concerned with what makes men great, or greater.
To probe this question, we must rely on historical and biographical example, as well as the hard-won wisdom from life’s rough-and-tumble.
So, we are building on the foundation laid in Thirty-Seven to make the edifice of self-knowledge stretch higher and higher. As the spires reach skyward, so do we.
If we can keep company with the best of men, we cannot help but become better. Nature has endowed us with a lively curiosity about the workings of personality and character; and we should make use of this inquisitive nature to better ourselves.
That man who is indifferent to the higher things in life will not be swayed by appeals to such principles. But we do not direct our efforts to such a man.
The example of moral good, and glorious actions, cannot fail to inspire awe in the idealistic man. It is to him that my book is directed.
If we can provide a consistent example of virtuous deeds and conduct, we can fill the idealistic heart with a dominating purpose.
This purpose is my purpose.
My intention is for you to embark on the conquest of your world. I have forged the sword. And now you must grasp the pommel.
And we cannot help but generate action, and a noble purpose, which is the first step in self-realization.
Help me, O Muse, and carry my words aloft,
On swift and airy currents, that they may solace
The expectant calls of seeking hearts.
