Maximum Axioms for mental acuity: 100 simple sayings for intellectual inspiration (Vol. 1) by Faydra D. Fields. Reviewed by Gabriel Constans.
Though the title may sound complicated, or high falutting, it is anything but. Right from the get go, Ms. Fields explains that the axioms are not new thoughts, but are said in her own words. They are simple, yet profound.
“Life would be so much more straightforward if it came with directions, but it would also be less flexible.”
There are no flowery, or unrealistic statements in this collection of screenshot ready comments.
“Help others feel better, and they will survive. Help others be better, and they will thrive.”
Some of the words are challenging, yet compassionately so.
“Life is lived in the midst of your storms, not after they have passed you by.”
Others find the humor in living and self-reflection.
“Don’t depend on others to toot your horn, especially since you don’t even know where their mouths have been.”
“Do all you can to keep the game of life from becoming a trivial pursuit.”
Maximum Axioms for Mental Acuity hits the spot – the sweet spot of being honest with one’s self, taking care in what you say and do, and reminders about what is, and is not, important. Am looking forward to the next volume in this collection.
