Book cover for Dignity: Seeking Respect in Back Row America
They feel disrespected—and with good reason. My circles, the bankers, business people, and the politicians they supported had created a world where McDonald’s was often one of the only restaurant options—and we make fun of them for going ...more

I appreciated this book more than I thought I would. She identifies many of the same woes of capitalism and modernity - I especially liked her connection of attention and bioregionalism - but there’s something major lacking in her “teleology without ...more

Elisabeth Elliot
“But the question to precede all others, which finally determines the course of our lives is What do I really want? Was it to love what God commands, in the words of the collect, and to desire what He promises? Did I want what I wanted, or did I want what He wanted, no matter what it might cost?”
Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ's Control

Flannery O'Connor
“She looked at nice young men as if she could smell their stupidity.”
Flannery O'Connor

Alan Jacobs
“The book that simply demands to be read, for no good reason, is asking us to change our lives by putting aside what we usually think of as good reasons. It's asking us to stop calculating. It's asking us to do something for the plain old delight and interest of it, not because we can justify its place on the mental spreadsheet or accounting ledger (like the one Benjamin Franklin kept) by which we tote up the value of our actions.”
Alan Jacobs, The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction

Jim Elliot
“He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
Jim Elliot

G.K. Chesterton
“I mean,' he said with increasing vehemence, `that if there be a house for me in heaven it will either have a green lamp-post and a hedge, or something quite as positive and personal as a green lamp-post and a hedge. I mean that God bade me love one spot and serve it, and do all things however wild in praise of it, so that this one spot might be a witness against all the infinities and the sophistries, that Paradise is somewhere and not anywhere, is something and not anything. And I would not be so very much surprised if the house in heaven had a real green lamp-post after all.”
G. K. Chesterton
