Reading

By | December 18, 2006

The quality which makes a reader master of the secret of books is primarily of the soul, and only secondarily of the mind ; and to get the deepest and sweetest out of literature one must read with the heart. A book read with the mind only is skimmed ; true reading involves the imagination and the feelings.

from My Study Fire Second Series by Hamilton Mabie

The weather is still unseasonably warm here in Steubenville.

Update:  Wow!  A favorite old book o’ mine is online!  Mariæ Corolla; a Wreath for Our Lady

Read this great poem from it:  A Corde Mariæ
