Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments : Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World
These ten timeless principles were first articulated by the author when he was a student at Harvard in the nineteen sixties. Since then, they've traveled around the world and back again-usually with no attribution at all. They've been cited as an anonymous poem on more than eighty websites; appropriated as song lyrics; quoted in books and by business leaders; circulated by organizations from the Boy Scouts to the Special Olympics; and tacked to the wall of Mother Teresa's children's home in Calcutta.
It was upon learning about this last appearance that Kent Keith was moved to put his commandments, the philosophy behind them, and the stories that bring them to life into this modern credo for living well, being happy, and doing good anyway.
