  1. Well Denis Parsons Burkitt, I like to read and ponder in equal amounts. John Waters got it exactly right.

    1. I totally agree with you on Denis Parsons Burkitt's quote, however, I also think he is right, we certainly should ponder about what we read. ;)

      I also totally agree with John Waters. I consider myself very rich. I have a fantastic library I can use and I can afford to buy the books they don' have. What's better?

      Other than that, my favourite this week is the one Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

      Have a good week,
