A BOOK REVIEW : LIGHT FROM MANY LAMPS

Great lives give great inspiration. If wisdom of ages is properly archived, it would definitely help to succeeding generations. The book 'Light from many Lamps, edited by Lillian Eichler Watson' is a perfect blend of wisdom of East and West. It is a storehouse of inspiring quotes with caricature of world’s renowned personalities.

This book is a result of long labour by Watson in culling out the wisdom of past centuries. As the cover flap truly suggests, it is a book of infinite richness and abiding values.

This book is not meant for casual reading. It is a book which you have to come back and forth from time to time, sometimes to endure your sufferings and some other times to lift your spirits. Reading this prose will change the trajectory of your thought. The starting page itself is a minefield of timeless wisdom into simple questions like "Who is a wise man. In reply, Talmud says that ' He who learns of all men'. The contents of this book broadly divided into interesting chapters like 'Happiness and Enjoyment of living'  click here to read further
