Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was one of the greats. He was a prodigious composer, producing more than 350 works. One of the secrets to his high level of energy seems to have been his relationship with coffee. It was an indispensable part of his diet. He was fastidious in its preparation, counting out exactly 60 coffee beans for each cup.

By the time we’ve become young adults, most of us don’t remember much about our lives from before the age of 5. As we grow into middle age, more and more childhood memories drop away.

Photographer Joel Leindecker can kick himself in the head 127 times in one minute. Guinness World Records affirms his achievement is unmatched.

But I invite you to rebel against this trend in the coming weeks.

Near the end of the 19th century, an American named Annie Londonderry became the first woman to ride a bicycle around the world. It was a brave and brazen act for an era when women still couldn’t vote and paved roads were rare. Her 15-month journey took her through countries that would be risky for a single woman on a bike to travel through today, like Egypt and Yemen.

Author P.G. Wodehouse wrote more than 90 books, several plays, musical comedies and film scripts. When he died at age 93, he was working on another novel. He didn’t suffer from writer’s block, yet his process was far from effortless. He rarely churned out perfection on his first attempt.
CAPRICORN: November 5-11 Wednesday, November 5, 2014
It’s a favorable time to meditate intensely on friendship. Questions to ask yourself: How good of a friend are you to those you want as friends? What capacities do you cultivate in your effort to build and maintain vigorous alliances? Do you have a clear sense of what qualities you seek?

Before the invention of the printing press, books in Europe were handmade. Medieval monks spent long hours copying texts, often adding illustrations in the margins.
