There is another astonishing thing about Hobbits of old that must be mentioned, an astonishing habit: they imbibed or inhaled, through pipes of clay or wood, the smoke of the burning leaves of a herb, which they called pipe-weed or leaf, a ...more

This is an absolutely brilliant novel. It's akin to, say, 'Orthodoxy,' except written as fiction, as opposed to a treatise, or dialogue. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is a surprisingly quirky and sprawling story. I'll admit, many times I was confused, but it's a really interesting novel, and the character's narrations are very thoughtful and insightful.

He looked around at the perfectly white world, felt the

Being a lifelong fan of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, I am almost taken aback when I say that 'The Prince and the Pauper' is my new favorite of Twain's works. It's such a beautiful, poetic, and very passionate story about the true nature of nobility and ...more

A beautiful and profound overview of the infancy narratives. I'm very glad I read this, and shall probably continue to do so in the coming years.

God is love. But love can also be hated when it challenges us to transcend ourselves. It is not a

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”

Marcus Aurelius
“At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: ‘I have to go to work—as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for—the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?

—But it’s nicer here…

So you were born to feel ‘nice’? Instead of doings things and experiencing them? Don’t you see the plants, the birds, the ants and spiders and bees going about their individual tasks, putting the world in order, as best they can? And you’re not willing to do your job as a human being? Why aren’t you running to do what your nature demands?

—But we have to sleep sometime…

Agreed. But nature set a limit on that—as it did on eating and drinking. And you’re over the limit. You’ve had more than enough of that. But not of working. There you’re still below your quota. You don’t love yourself enough. Or you’d love your nature too, and what it demands of you. People who love what they do wear themselves down doing it, they even forget to wash or eat. Do you have less respect for your own nature than the engraver does for engraving, the dancer for dance, the miser for money or the social climber for status? When they’re really possessed by what they do, they’d rather stop eating and sleeping than give up practicing their arts.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I am in fact a Hobbit in all but size. I like gardens, trees, and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humor (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late (when possible). I do not travel much.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
