I have been recommending the Moody Classics, a series of smaller paperback books which are reprints of great writers.  This is by the Dutch writer (1380-1471) Thomas of the city of Kempen near Cologne.  His journey is one of self-reflection and denial—a subject which may be of distaste today.  But these things ought not to be ignored by us today.  Wise men, “standing upon the things that are present, contemplate the things which are eternal.  They look on transitory things with the left eye, and with the right do behold the things of heaven.”
