What I've Been Reading

The Moral Sayings Of Publius Syrus: A Roman Slave (1855) by Publius Syrus and Darius Lyman Jr. (Translator). I never heard of Publius Syrus until recently; there is an amazing amount of wisdom in the this book - A must read!!
I think the best way to read this book is to read a random page everyday and make this a habit.

  It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity.

A good reputation is more valuable than money. 

Consult your conscience, rather than popular opinion.

Bear without murmuring what cannot be changed. 

It is a fraud to receive trust which you cannot return. 

He has existed only, not lived who lacks wisdom in old age. 

Multiply your sets of kindness, and you teach the recipient to return them.
