    Are you German or Russian? Or a philosophy student?

    'Thus Spoke Zarathustra' --> "too much sugar".
    Happiness is the beginning and the axiom of existence.

    Never set my foot in Russia.
    Too many Kolnikovs there .. and Putins.
    To say nothing of Raskolnikovs.. and Rasputins.

    Germany is a beautiful country. I was happy to live there for a while.

    Philosophy is all right if you do not study it.

    I live in Finland. A foreign country.

    Wildcat, I am going to be your fanboy now and respond to you with tangential comments just to hear you say, "Nonsense!" Or even better "Complete gibberish!"

    That book changed my life. Well, my perceptions of my relative lack of a life, but still... Fucking incredible work of literature.

    Is it customary that you decorate your bane with froth?

    Just bought this. I'm not a big reader but hopefully I can get into it. I assume I'll enjoy it. Seems like an interesting story. I want to see the movie.

People think I'm dumb or on drugs but later say "oh, you're actually smart". I particularly enjoyed Don Quixote and Sancho's debates on philosophical ideas, and their differences in perspective. It was also hilarious how Sancho bought into Don Quixote's fantasies.
    GZA - I just started this book a week ago, and I had some trepidation going into it. Just thinking...ug...this was written 5 centuries ago..it's going to be tedious.... but it is **so** clever and really really funny. I'm pleasantly surprised and am enjoying it immensely!! Only 700 or so pages to go...

    Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe
    The Lord of the Rings trilogy - J.R.R. Tolkien
    The Wheel of Time series - "Robert Jordan" James Oliver Rigney, Jr.
    The Deverry novels - Katharine Kerr
    The Belgariad - David Eddings

    Since I read about a book every week for leisure, it's kind of hard to remember all of them, but those are some of the most important.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
