Lewis Quote

"It is one of the difficult and delightful subtleties of life that we must deeply acknowledge certain things to be serious and yet retain the power and will to treat them often as lightly as a game." CS Lewis, The Four Loves


And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12.12

Books I admit to having read. Books I have enjoyed reading. Books that are eminently accessible. Books written by dead people. Books being components of the Great Conversation.
