This book is about learning to put your best foot forward always. It calls upon us to first understand why we are on earth, who we are, and indeed God’s purpose for each one of us. This should motivate us to work towards the love of God and man without relenting.
The spirit of the book is thus as follows:
To be nobody but yourself
in a world which is doing its best
night and day
to make you everybody else
means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight;
and never stop fighting.
(A quote by E. E. Cummings)
