"Don’t say it was delightful; make us say delightful when we’ve read the description. You see, all those words (horrifying, wonderful, hideous, exquisite) are only like saying to your readers Please will you do the job for me."

— C. S. Lewis

“A holy book of the nation, along with the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence,” - poet laureate Robert Hass on Leaves of Grass

The Idiot
by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Random Line: …we can’t understand everything at once, we can’t start right out with perfection! To archive perfection, one must first begin by not understanding many things! And if we understand too quickly, we may not understand well.
