In the classic tradition of Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, Samuel Johnson, and H.L. Mencken, here is a thoughtful, reflective book of distilled wisdom—epigrams. Webster's dictionary defines an epigram as "A concise, clever, often paradoxical statement", i.e. a short piece of wisdom, often witty or satiric. These original epigrams by author Michael Lipsey ponder some of life's greatest questions about living, dying, love, mortality, religion, science, work, health and wealth. They get right to the point, giving fresh insights to those questions in a very few words.
