really liked it
bookshelves: contemporary-literature
Read in April, 2011

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”

(Re-reading books from my college days, and yes, I need to create a 'classic literature' bookshelf.)

The first Romantic Novel. Still great after all these years.
