Words is a collection of basic truths, universal law, wisdom, inspiration, reason, thoughts, views, ideas, concepts, convictions, and facts. These observations and realizations are from the minds and hearts and life experiences of very remarkable human beings who preceded us. I honor and thank them all: 347 men and 33 women. There are 686 entries. Many contributors have only one entry, while others have a dozen or more. This assortment of easy reading covers the previous 3,000 years, from Homer to the 20th century. The final product was gleaned from over 10,000 such items recorded for posterity. Humanity has not really learned much new, not anything that really matters concerning living a simple, honest, happy, fulfilling, and rewarding life on our lonely planet; it is just stated in different ways, and at different times, down through the centuries. This book is recommended for any mature, searching heart and mind, particularly victims suffering from PTSD, and anyone dealing with the third and fourth decade of life. It should be particularly beneficial to that human being who is of the opinion that “life’s a bitch…and then you die.” Between the covers of this book, I hope to illustrate otherwise.

Mark how fleeting and paltry is the estate of man: yesterday in embryo, tomorrow a mummy or ashes. So for the hair's breadth of time assigned to thee live rationally, and part with life cheerfully, as drops the ripe olive, extolling the season that bore it and the tree that matured it.
-Marcus Aurelius

I hate the drums discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round;
To me it talks of ravaged plains,
And burning towns, and ruined swains,
and mangled limbs, and dying groans,
and widow's tears, and orphan's moans;
and all that Misery's hand bestows
To fill the catalog of human woes.
-John Scott
