He pressed his lips together, and his tongue went soft; it pained him far at the back, in the cords and throat, and a knot of ill formed in his chest. Whenever at the end of the day he was unusually fatigued he attributed it to cynicism. Too much of the world’s business done.

He pressed his lips together, and his tongue went soft; it pained him far at the back, in the cords and throat, and a knot of ill formed in his chest. Dad never was a pal to me when I was young, he reflected. He was at the office or the hospital, or lecturing.

Wilhelm, in a blinded and convulsed aberration, pressed and pressed to try to kill the trembling of his hand as he wrote out his check for a thousand.

Wilhelm, therefore, had had to go. At eleven o’clock they had walked to the brokerage office. Wilhelm, in a blinded and convulsed aberration, pressed and pressed to try to kill the trembling of his hand as he wrote out his check for a thousand. He set his lips tight, crouched with his huge back over the table, and wrote with crumbling, terrified fingers, knowing that if Tamkin’s check bounced his own would not be honored either. His sole cleverness was to set the date ahead by one day to give the green check time to clear.

Seize the Day, first published in 1956, is Saul Bellow's fourth novel. It was adapted into the film of the same name. The story centers on a day in the life of Wilhelm Adler (. Tommy Wilhelm), a failed actor in his forties. Wilhelm is unemployed, impecunious, separated from his wife (who refuses to agree to a divorce), and estranged from his children and his father. He is also stuck with the same immaturity and lack of insight which has brought him to failure.

Seize the day. Be in the present. Grasp the hour, the moment, the instant. The journey that follows takes him across the length of New York City, from his hotel room at the Gloriana to the floor of the stock exchange, bringing him ever closer to his heart's ultimate need.

Seize the Day is concise and short but conveys a massive amounts of human feeling. One cannot help from being sympathetic towards its main character, Tommy Wilhelm. The situation in which he finds himself can be attributed to his own poor decision-making and a pronounced refusal to engage in serious introspection. Years after writing Seize the Day, Bellow said in interviews that never liked Tommy Wilhelm very much. Indeed, Wilhelm is not particularly likable and the reader is likely to feel as much sympathy for him as the other characters in the novella. Stop whining, be a man, get a job!" we want to say to him.

I ordered the book and this study guide. Carpe Diem is a term that I know well. What I have trouble with is doing it. This book and study guide are helping me with grasping that concept as a daily goal.
I am not a reader at all but if you are wanting to get your day on track, this is the book for it. It is somewhat biblical based (Hence Joyce Meyers) but a great book to just live each day on purpose whether you want to rest or get a few things accomplished. I enjoyed her spin of honesty about how her days are not perfect and she has been known to waste some time as well. I enjoyed it so much I just may read it again.
Enjoying this book, its an eye opener as to how we are spending our days.
This book is great it makes you stop and think more clearly about your thoughts and actions everyday
Many people think joy and success will just happen. This book speaks to the fact that it takes God AND You to have the life you want.
This book was very impactful and a lot of insight was gained through this book. I would recommend this to as many people as possible especially people within the ages above 35 years.
The audio is easy to hear and understand, too!
This book is an eye opener and very well written. It is real, practical and down to earth. Thank you for writing this book.
