Lots of little gems in this very small book, but at this time this was not a book for me.
I really struggled to finish it, had to think too hard, found it too philosophical. (See quote below for a few sentences that depict what I mean.)

Quote: "Pleasure is a freedom-song, but it is not freedom. It is the blossoming of your desires, but it is not their fruit. It is a depth calling unto a height, but it is not the deep nor the high. Ay, in very truth, pleasure is a freedom-song. And I fain would have you sing it with fullness of heart; yet I would not have you lose your hearts in the singing. " ( )
