Sayings For Sale ixPosted: April 6, 2016
They seem to think a book is an article of virtu. But let me tell you… as much as wealth is not the measure of enjoyment, publication as such is not the validation of literary achievement.
And the great Xenophon once stated that ‘nothing can be more useful in war than a well-timed stratagem’, so too you’ll find that nothing is more purposeful than a work of art that serves to inspire peace or teach, especially in a world where most endeavours are undertaken with the intent to only make profit.
And because of the internet, there’s no limit to how far your work can reach; so why not then use that convenience to speak from your heart, and spread the purest substance of your soul like a useful viropexis, instead of promulgating superficial solutions like that initiated when the world’s first ATM was installed in Enfield Street, only to service those who already had savings and the rich.
I write for those who are interested, not those who can afford to pay a buck or quid. And so I say – read if you must… no rush, for I will keep giving you as much as you’re willing to take and continue to ’til I return to dust.
