The Daily Dose

A Quick Shot of What the World's Best Thinkers Thought (and What We Can Learn from Them)

by M. D. Ridenour

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The Daily Dose is a journey of discovery; a look back in time to examine the universal truths that have been noted and commented upon by 366 of the brightest minds that have ever existed. Through their quotes, insightful anecdotes, and interesting bits of trivia, we explore the strangely synchronous intersections that often occur between Life and History.
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.
About the author
This is M.D. Ridenour's first book. A lifelong learner, he continues to be an avid student of history, economics, metrology, philosophy, theology, and foreign languages (his current obsession is Italian). He lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he golfs, plays duplicate Bridge, barbecues, contemplates Life, and is working on a second volume of The Daily Dose.
