Paradoxical Commandments Summary


Paradoxical Commandments: Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World by Kent M. Keith

The First Commandment: People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centred. Love them anyway. These commandments were first written down by Kent M Keith for student leaders in the 1960s. Over the following years, they spread via word-of-mouth and became greatly valued - adopted by people far and wide, including Mother Teresa. Now, for the first time, Keith's inspiring commandments appear in this life-changing book - with each principle illustrated with inspiring stories from his own life, as well as classic examples from history. They offer a way of living far removed from the lifestyle that strives for the popular symbols of success - wealth, power and fame. Instead, these ten rational principles focus on the enriching personal meaning that comes through living our lives selflessly and without recognition. Through accepting the Paradoxical Commandments and the paradoxical life we are each truly free to be who we are really meant to be.

Paradoxical Commandments Reviews


'[The Paradoxical Commandments] is simple, eloquent and profound. It will touch you in surprising ways. Most important, it will help you to live a life that is rich in personal meaning.' - Spencer Johnson, M.D., author of Who Moved My Cheese? 'The Paradoxical Commandments' are a set of common sense ideas on how to be successful through service to others. Their author, Kent Keith, has tested them and proven that they do work. They are as clear a guide as I've seen on how to be a good person by doing the right thing.' - Wally Amos, author of The Power In You
