I am late to the game on this, but I finally read the Alexander Hamilton biography by Ron Chernow. While I detected some bias, it was still an enjoyable read, and I learned much about my country and myself. One of the lines I identify with is when Chernow wrote:
“He (Alexander Hamilton) always had to fight the residual sadness of the driven man.“
Through Christ, this sadness does not remain. However, it does creep in on the ambitious.
