My name is Brenton and this is my website. And if you’re the right kind of person, this is your website.
I believe that too many men are afraid to strive for greatness and nobility in this world. Both nobility in spirit and nobility in action. And that’s what this website is about.
It’s about mastering yourself and the world around you to be a great man. And how do we it on this site?
- We do it through posts focusing on learning about powerful habits, psychology, meditation, and introspection/reflection exercises. That is the section called “Self.” It’s about just that: mastering yourself.
- We do it through telling the life stories of great figures of the past, through sharing my own travel memoirs from the nearly 50 countries I’ve visited, and sharing the short stories that I continue to craft as a write. That is the section called “Stories.”
- We do it through inspiring ourselves with the wise quotes, poems and passages from the most illuminated minds of the past, and occasionally from yours truly. That is the section called “Sayings.”
People call me the Modern Voltaire. I believe that’s because I see myself as a philosopher in the traditional sense. I have a true love of knowledge. That is expressed through writing, speaking, and teaching – anchored by the desire to compel people to think and feel deeply.
I have always believed that the most powerful question in this world is “why?” It’s not only the question that motivates us as human beings to learn about ourselves and the root of our existence, but also about the world around us. The world is imperfect; but I believe it to be beautiful
But in the true spirit of the Renaissance man, I think that all forms of knowledge and beauty are interconnected and should be properly explored. All people should try to be complete in honoring all of life’s meaningful pursuits. As such, I have an ardent passion for music, dance, meditation and poetry.
