Sharing knowledge is the most fundamental act of friendship. Because it is a way you can give something without losing something.
In the early nineteenth century, Thomas Carlyle gave a manuscript to philosopher John Stuart Mill to review. Somehow, whether accidentally or intentionally, the manuscript got tossed into a fire. It was Carlyle’s only copy. Undaunted, he set to work rewriting the lost chapters. Mere flames couldn’t stop the story, which remained intact in his mind. Out of great loss, Carlyle produced his monumental work The French Revolution.
Unlike Thomas and fortunately for us, the manuscripts of our 800+ authors from around the globe have been preserved as originally published over the past decade –now representing over 26,000 timeless works of wisdom. Such wisdom spans across the life, culture, and business spectrum, including storytelling at its very best, poetry, podcasts, videocasts, music anthologies, and blockbuster streaming productions. And what better time for each of you than during our “Radical Sabbatical” to take a stroll through our massive archives of “good stuff” until our publishing resumes in mid-February.

Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.
