More About This Title I Thought So: More Original Epigrams by Michael Lipsey
An epigram is a condensed thought, a few words that equal many. A concise, clever, often paradoxical statement, says Webster's Dictionary. In the ancient world, the first epigrams were inscriptions in verse, carved into the stones of tombs, statues, temples, and triumphal arches. With the advent of paper, they later evolved into brief morsels of insight, often witty or satirical.I Thought So, Volume 2 is a new distillation of wisdom in the classic tradition of Mark Twain, H. L. Mencken, Epictetus, Samuel Johnson, and la Rochefoucauld. If you love epigrams, you'll be surprised and delighted by the original mind reflected here. If you enjoy seeing things from a different angle, and like to discuss life's larger questions, then this is the perfect book for you.
