Fourth review for reading

Unfortunately, the lectures on the English literature clashes with my economics class. But there are audio recordings available on its website.

Fortunately, I found something exciting from one of the books I am reading. These words are almost what I thought about if the word "passion" can be understood in a wider way:

" 'all passions, even the most unpleasant, are as passions pleasant' because 'they make us... more conscious of our existence, they make us feel more real.' "    Hannah Arendt    "Men in dark times"

    Hannan Arendt is an important writer – it’s good that you found something important to reflect on.
