The Forest Passage

by Ernst J√ľnger

Recommendation from a friend. Read slowly over several months. A brief but great read about the power of the individual to resist tyranny and exercise independence and learning to recognize the value in cultivating one’s individuality in solitude, despite the chaos raging around them. Two favorite and apt quotes “Fear always takes on the mask, the style of the times” and “This is the gullibility of modern man, which coexists with a lack of faith. He believes what he reads in the newspaper but not what is written in the stars.”
