"Telling a story is like reaching into a granary full of wheat and drawing out a handful. There is always more to tell than can be told."

Compelling, simple, hands-in-earth, hammock-on-the-porch prose spun by a master wordsmith. I long to be a Port Wi...more

[Not sure where my original review went. I'm sure it was brilliant. Now I'll be concise.]

“We live in an age in which saving is subterfuge for spending. No doubt you sincerely believe that there is margarine in your refrigerator because it is more economical than butter. But you are wrong. Look in your bread drawer. How many boxes of cute snack crackers are there? How many packages of commercial cookies reeking of imitation vanilla badly masked with oil of coconut? How many presweetened breakfast cereals? Tell me now that you bought the margarine because you couldn't afford butter. You see - you can't. You bought the bread drawer of goodies because you were conned into them; and you omitted the butter because you were conned out of it. The world has slipped you culinary diagrams instead of food. It counts on your palate being not only wooden, but buried under ten coats of synthetic varnish as well. Therefore, the next time you go to check out of the supermarket, simply put back one box of crackers, circle round the dairy case again, swap your margarine for a pound of butter and walk up to the checker with your head held high, like the last of the big spenders. This is no time for cost-counters: It is time to be very rich or very poor - or both at once.”
Robert Farrar Capon, The Supper of the Lamb: A Culinary Reflection

C.S. Lewis
“Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.”
C.S. Lewis

Jeremiah Burroughs
“[E]very comfort that the saints have in this world is an earnest penny to them of those eternal mercies that the Lord has provided for them.”
Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment

Abraham Kuyper
“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”
