The brothers Safir(e) have searched far and wide and collected thousands of small sayings for instruction and delight. There is much triteness here, and it can be tiresome to read a lot of this at a time. Nonetheless there is much 'wisdom' here and the organization by subject makes it seem as if each 'entry' and the sayings contained in it constitute a kind of mini- essay on this subject.
Here is one piece of such wisdom I particularly love. It is by Anne Frank on the subject of 'beauty'
"I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains...My advice is: Go outside , to the fields, enjoy nature and the sunshine, go out and try to recapture happiness in yourself and in God.Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy."
