I like your drive sincerely you have to understand and see clearly a couple of things. To study the greats you have to do more than just read. Taking notes is very important if you don't take notes and finish the whole book. How are you going to be an expert? Let me answer you want. Studying the greats and taking notes is what separates great men from others. I know call me arrogant or whatever I know from experience its what I do. I have been doing it for a long time. In fact there is no one on either coast that does it better. I hope you take this for advice from someone who is a lover of knowledge, poetry, and the arts.
Yes that's what I know...study, take notes...read the whole books and place what you read into action...all the books that will empower you into making important decisions in life...found the whole list of books 2PAC read...and I'm hoping I'm able to read most of what he read....my apologies that it took me so long to reply back...I have been doing alot
Did you now and what did you learn. Have you obtained wisdom? What do you know of sorrow and its ally solitude. Whoa you haven't made it that far yet have you. What other books have you read. If you take the notes what good does that do if you cant memorize them. Cliff let me say that some things are on another level. Knowledge is what you can take from those books and apply to your life. Would you let an ideal consume you? The search for knowledge is eternal. It never stops for some of us. Its not just studying a certain type of book. Don't be so one sided in your reading materials. Many lessons the greats can teach you if you open your mind. On the other hand if you refuse to switch it up. Only reading those types you limit yourself.
More importantly listen to your intuition its never failed me.
