Sportsmen, politicians, novelists—and, of course, a plethora of mussar works and Chassidic sayings—form the basis of Yankie Schwartz’s Contemplations. For Schwartz’s hallmark is his ability to penetrate to the truth of a statement, examine it from all angles, and bring it to bear on daily living. How to approach major catastrophes—or minor inconveniences. How to find happiness—even without pursuing it. How to imbue each moment with a spiritual focus. All this and more are the gifts offered to us in Contemplations, nuggets of wisdom that make an eternal impact.
