Description
Taking his inspiration from 42 of the funniest, wisest, and quirkiest quotations about the big questions in life, Mark Vernon uses these as starting points for brilliant observations, explaining what the world's greatest thinkers had to say on eternal life, work, love and sex, and the nature of happiness. Is ignorance bliss? Are freedom and slavery mental states? Is love blind? Is there any reason to believe a politician who tells you things can only get better? Vernon draws his own conclusions, and encourages each of us to think deeply about these things for ourselves.

"A joy to read, yielding both wisdom and delight in perfectly sized portions. A trip to the supermarket will never be the same again."—Richard Schoch
