APHORISM: A mind in search of developing its full potential should read serious books it does not enjoy and engage in conversations that make it uncomfortable

We have reached a stage of crisis in the United States, and apparently elsewhere as well, where people are unable to entertain thoughts unlike–or contrary to–their own.  There is a personal dialectic that needs to occur in one’s own head in order for a person to become liberated and noble.  It is essential in becoming the kind of man that, with each advancement of self-understanding and understanding of the rest of the Universe and one’s relationship to it, can say to himself: “I am more like I was always meant to be.”

Tragically, in the true sense of the word ‘tragedy’, many never experience this–at least they have no memory of it.
