  • Siddhartha's Finding Of Solace In The River
    1,228 words
    Monday Theology First off, let me start by saying that Siddhartha is a book that I never would have voluntarily chosen to read. A book based on Indian culture (dot, not feather) and set in a period of many years ago didn't sound like my idea of a fun evening's read. But now, after completing it, I can say that I was 100 percent incorrect and pleasantly surprised. This book was just chocked full of all kinds of symbols, signs and ideas, two of which really seemed familiar to me. Not because they ...

It does not relieve hunger. It does not alleviate pain. It creates only avoidable aggression. I ...
