With its simple laguange, the story of a man, a musician is presented beautifully, because this man had a magnificent heart, loved this world, saw this world, and lived up to his ideal and principles. It also gives insight into life: that truly happiness and joy can only be found through serving humanity. If you have doubts in it, if you think money and success are the sources, then you should give yourself a little challenge by this book.
In Casals' stories, his mother impressed me most - I think any woman who plan to have children should read it and ask herself if she is qualified to be a mother. The heaviness of being a mother has not being realized by many young women, and I really think that accounts for some of the chaos and crimes in the world.
I was also constantly deeply moved by Casals' love of his Catalonia. I have heard of this beautiful people before, still I am deeply touched by a man's love of his root, of his culture. It is just so consitent with his being a great lover of humanity, a great artist! I wish everyone understood his own root and culture and love it no matter what turmoil his own country is being through.
So many to say because this book provokes one thinking deeply about the history of this century, about everything essential to life. I am also especially grateful to Albert Kahn to carry out this project, and tell the story in such a wonderful way.
May everyone read it and think how to live his life seriously. This is a book of a living example !
