Pole star

11 Jan 2023

A man needs a pole star—a fixed reference point to orient his life. When he has that everything falls into place. It can be anything really: Christianity, Buddhism, Stoicism, or create your own.


The key to every man is his thought. Sturdy and defying though he look, he has a helm which he obeys, which is the idea after which all his facts are classified. He can only be reformed by showing him a new idea which commands his own.
