Quote for Today:

Let  us remember, then, that every time we abuse these terms [love and beauty], or use them too lightly , we are draining them of their power; every time a society journalist or a film producer exploits this vast suggestiveness to tickle a vanity or dignify a lust, he is squandering a great pile of spiritual capital which has been laid up by centuries of weary effort.

-Owen Barfield, History in English Words 

Quote for the Day:

I’m sharing today’s quote, not so much for its wisdom or insight as the date and proof that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

“The young people of today think of nothing but themselves.  They have not reverence for parents or old age.  They are impatient of all restraint.  They talk as if they know everything, and what passes for wisdom with us if foolishness to them”.

–Peter the monk, 1274
