The amazing Herman Wouk

When you think that there are US Presidents 30 years younger than this guy who can't begin to express themselves half as clearly, this becomes inspirational!
"When you are studying any matter, or considering any philosophy, ask yourself only what are the facts and what is the truth that the facts bear out. Never let yourself be diverted, either by what you wish to believe, or by what you think would have beneficent social effects if it were believed. But look only, and solely, at what are the facts."

I've always like Herman Wouk.

My favorite book by him is City Boy...a kind of coming of age tale set in the Bronx during the 1920's. It was written in 1949, and held up very well.

Wouk has just turned 102.
