The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Where The Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Where the Sidewalk Ends:

Rhymes for life.

My favorite Shel Silverstein quote from the book:

"If you are a bird, be an early bird. If you are a worm, sleep late."

Questions I pondered while reading Where the Sidewalk Ends:

Do I have to make my own magic?  Can't someone bring me some?

Can I wish too much?

My thoughts about Where the Sidewalk Ends:

I am still inventing my colors.

Everyone can find wisdom here.

Anything can happen.
