In this thread I hope to, with your help and guidance, establish a guide of 100 texts which contain some of the greatest value or wisdom compiled by man.
So, friends, do you have any titles to suggest for our list? Which text/texts have contributed the most to mankind? Which are essential to complete a comprehensive home library?
Here are a few that I would have to add to my own personal list:
1. The Epic of Gilgemesh
2. The Holy Bible
3. Divine Comedy
5. Poetry of Ranier Maria Rilke
6. I Ching
7. Moby Dick
8. The Complete Works of John Milton

10. Rights of Man
11. On the Origin of Species
12. The Brothers Karamozov
13. Dialogues of Plato
