Wednesdays with Words: A Part of Himself



Two that go together from Karen Glass in Consider This.

"The proper nourishment for a living mind -- the only thing which will allow the mind to reach its full potential is a diet of ideas ... appetizing and varied ..." pg 69

"Everything that a person learns becomes a part of himself, and as his character is formed, he recognizes that he is made up of those experiences he has had, the people he has met, the books he has read, and the things he has thought." pg 73


Sorry for the tardy posting.  Looking forward to seeing what you've been reading.

  1. Great selections that you've quoted from Karen Glass's book. I intend to go through the book again- soon I hope. It is a wonderful book.

    1. I definitely imagine revisiting it often. I was a little unsure of this selection, but WWW is to be words that mean something to me and these certainly did.

  2. Yes, I'm going to reread that one as well, although I technically have reread much of it, but not officially which makes all the difference. :)
    A friend gave me a small poster once for my bedroom that showed two cats at a piano and it said, "If practice makes perfect, then be careful what you practice."
    I think it makes sense that we need to be conscious of what we are learning since it shapes us so directly.

    1. That's a quote I'm going to keep, Heather. Rather sobering.

    2. I agree with Carol. My grandmother always says "Practice makes permanent." Which is a similar statement.

      Consider This has been a perfect transitional book for me moving to a more CM philosophy.
