A man keeps, like his love, his courage dark.

Antoine de Saint Exupery

Could/should be subtitled ‘The power of learning to read.’

Brilliantly and descriptively written. A journey of a life LIVed through severe austerity, LIVed with dignity, and launched into a life of learning through reading.

Note to self, read to Montaigne next as he is the author of the unnamed main character’s first book.

“This is a wonderful book,” said the teacher. “It was written

by a man named Montaigne, who was a solider.

But he grew tired of being a solider and

spent his time studying and writing.

He also liked to walk on country roads.”

One good book always leads to another.
