Share and Discuss Quotations, Passages, and Ideas

Use this thread throughout the semester to share and discuss quotations, passages, and ideas you find to your taste and well worth saving and sharing.  Please share what it was you found thought provoking, true, or of value in the quote, passage, or idea you share with the class.


Remember, talking about a quote or passage was a way of slowing down and focusing attention when the object of reading wasn't to race through but to savor and to enjoy.  As much as anything else, you are noting something you enjoyed and then discussing to try and explain why you enjoyed what you did.  This way you get to enjoy the first time through the experience and a second time through the discussion.  If all goes very, very well indeed, you get another kind of enjoyment out of the discussion itself.
