Find of the Week: The Art of Thinking

 

The Art of Thinking by Ernest Dimnet

Vintage books with compelling titles are nearly always interesting finds. I had never heard of The Art of Thinking but of course such a title is irresistible. Maybe it will prove to be a life-changing discovery. It turns out that the book made a big cultural splash when it was first published in 1928 by Ernest Dimnet, a French priest.

“The happiness of most people we know is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things”

— Ernest Dimnet (1866-1954)
