The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the play Waiting for Godot:

Keeping up the unkept appointment.

My favorite Samuel Beckett quote from the book:

"The tears of the world are a constant quantity. For each one who begins to weep, somewhere else another stops. The same is true for the laugh."

Questions to ponder while reading Waiting for Godot:

How long do you wait before giving up?

What is the purpose of doing nothing?

My review of Waiting for Godot:

I don't know why, but I love this play.

Bicker, philosophy, bicker.

Life is better with a bowler hat.
