    Highly Recommended - you must check this out!

    Earnestly, this very unique book represents an extension of opinion from its predecessor - Omar Khayyam -. In this conception, Exantus addresses our inner senses and common presence. And the PRESENT in its transitory course.
    We learn from this writings that we must personalize and admire LIFE and DEATH in its utmost energy and strength, adjust our Significance to the altruistic mediocrity of a revolving World, and regard respect and penetrating affection to all living matter before, like all things, they END.

    The apothegms are sufficiently self-explanatory and, reflect our every day thinking and feelings, and also apply to our factual every day enigma and unspoken dogma. This work is an ointment to the soul. Once the book is read, conceptual reality becomes easier understood and we could very well relate all troubles and certainty a better vista, exhaling the stress which all of us leave with. It is a chef d'oeuvre for everyone who needs to contemplate.
