Book notes

Updated on : read Jim Wendler's book

This is a "living" webpage in which I jot down notes from some of the books that I have read. These notes are things I consider worthy to remember and repeat, interesting ideas that came to me while reading, or summaries of big ideas.

Fiction

Yukio Mishima - The Temple of the Golden Pavilion

Fitness

Jim Wendler - 5/3/1: The Simplest and Most Effective Training System to Increase Raw Strength, 1st edition

Philosophy

Almost all of Nietzsche's books (save for the ones about Wagner)

There is only one way and that is your way. There is only one salvation and that is your salvation. Why are you looking for help? Do you believe help will come from outside? What is to come will be created in you and from you. Hence look into yourself. Do not compare. Do not measure. No other way is like yours. All other ways deceive and tempt you. You must fulfill the way that is in you.
