Well written and still timely. Amiel offers many insights I have found quite valuable:

"Work while you have the light. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you."
Henri Frederic Amiel

"Every situation is an equilibrium of forces; every life is a struggle between opposing forces working within the limits of a certain equilibrium"
Henri Frederic Amiel

This is not a book of maxims but a curated set of entries from his private journal, published after his death. Still he offers a number of useful observations:

"In the conduct of life, habits count more than maxims, because habit is a living maxim, become flesh and instinct. To reform one maxims is nothing; it is but to change the title on the book. To learn new habits is everything; for it is to reach the substance of life. Life is but a tissue of habits.”

This book is for the discriminating reader that appreciates virtue. I could never do it justice in these brief words. I love this work and I am very grateful that it came to be. It almost didn't since it was published after Amiel's death, by his friends to whom Amiel left his work. A very personal and beautiful journal, full of wonderful insights into Life, the nature of things, the human condition, etc. I love Amiel. What an honest man.

My first copy of Amiel's Journal was purchased almost thirty-years ago and belonged to the American author Wright Morris.
It proved to be an invaluable "companion" and a book that I've returned to time and again. Now that I am able to have this electronically as well it further extends the availability of this important and insightful book.
DELICIOUS! FILLS YOUR HEART AND MIND. KEEP IT AT YOUR BEDSIDE.
