It is strange that there are those who consider a book or composition life changing or inspiring when the person, the source itself is a work in progress and far from complete in that respect. Taking direction and inspiration from someone who isn’t sure of oneself, is subject to a changing stance is a flawed model. Look for universal truths, principles that endure the test of time as your moral compass (if you so wish) and reference. It is only logical that when the navigation system is working well, you’re on the right path. The same goes with drawing direction, example and inspiration in your personal life path.
