    For me this one:



    Funny thing is, I gave this book to my cousin as a birthday present.
    Remained on the bookshelf for months,
    One day, I have nothing to read, I picked up this one.
    And became my answer to your thread.

    Animal Farm without a doubt. For a book about animals this book is very deep.

    Re: What is the most influential book you've read?

    Friedrich Nietzsche's "Thus spoke Zarathustra", especially the following lines:

    "The strong spirit demands to carry much, but finds that what it is given to carry is not enough, it demands only the most difficult. This spirit piles on whatever it can, becoming a Camel. This camel bears the weight of his task, but eventually finds his work meaningless and illusory, he finds himself, in a spiritual desert.

    This Camel no longer finds meaning in the values subscribed to him; he is a spirit too strong to take on this task, he no longer wishes to bear the weight of values that do not come from his own. The Camel becomes a Lion, the spirit that fights against these false values in order to find his own place, his own freedom. The Lion is the no-saying spirit, but his role is not only to deny, but to make room for new yeas.

    This Lion becomes a Child. What is this child? He is a new beginning. This requires first a forgetting of the old, and then, the start of a new game. He is the beginning of a new wheel, his piece the center of a motion that picks up new pieces along its path, creating a new world along its way."

    Indeed, Nietzsche was more of a mystic than a philosopher. I value the spirit of the lion highly.

    Paradise Lost!

    Satan thought me a lot

    Whom reason hath equald, force hath made supream
    Above his equals. Farewel happy Fields
    Where Joy for ever dwells: Hail horrours, hail
    Infernal world, and thou profoundest Hell
    Receive thy new Possessor: One who brings
    A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time.
    The mind is its own place, and in it self
    Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n.
    What matter where, if I be still the same,
    And what I should be, all but less then he
    Whom Thunder hath made greater? Here at least
    We shall be free; th' Almighty hath not built
    Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
    Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
    To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
    Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav'n.

    Geniuses wouldn't excist if
    dumb and normal people didn't
    excist, because then all the
    geniuses would be the normal
    people, so you shouldn't look
    down on others whom are dumber
    than you, get it?
     

    Re: What is the most influential book you've read?

    I think Harry Potter a little bit...but when I was younger, Jip en Janneke I think. Books don't influence my life that much I gues
