The Interpretation of Cultures by Clifford Geertz
"The Interpretation of Cultures is an academic classic. The late Clifford Geertz was lauded for his 1973 anthropological volume, and I do not find this to be hype. The book is structured around anthropological description, with Geertz relying on fi..." Read more of this review »

Novalis
“Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason.”
Novalis

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Aristotle
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
Aristotle, Metaphysics

C.S. Lewis
“His Omnipotence means power to do all that is intrinsically possible, not to do the intrinsically impossible. You may attribute miracles to Him, but not nonsense. This is no limit to His power. If you choose to say, ‘God can give a creature free will and at the same time withhold free will from it,’ you have not succeeded in saying anything about God: meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning simply because we prefix to them the two other words, 'God can.' It remains true that all things are possible with God: the intrinsic impossibilities are not things but nonentities. It is no more possible for God than for the weakest of His creatures to carry out both of two mutually exclusive alternatives; not because His power meets an obstacle, but because nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God.”
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
