Developing
A Mature Perspective

I have heard it said, and it has become my belief, that
if a person would study one classic essay per week, then in a few short years,
they will be among the most educated people in the nation, earning the
equivalent of a degree in literature.  Below
is the start of a selection of articles and essays, arranged by topic, that I
consider classic—articles that, upon serious reflection, have the potential to
drastically improve the way a person views the world and approaches life (A
greater number of stars (*) indicates a superior level of transcendence):
