The Daily Dose is a daily reader. Each day begins with a word that is related to the human condition. It might be Compassion, or Adversity; Denial, or Forgiveness; Love, Purpose, or Consequences. Each of these words is a building block: an emotional or intellectual starting point that is then reflected in or connected to a quote from one of history's greatest Thinkers. The quotes are in turn followed by a paragraph or two that expounds on a general thought or idea that is inherent to the word and the quote. These "blurbs" are generally observational in nature, and are intended to prompt the reader to think, and encourage him or her to do. Each day then ends with a mini-biography of the Thinker, and a subtle thread that runs through each of the day's components, from the word to the quote to the blurb to the mini-biography.
