“Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue.” – Playwright, Eugene O’Neill who died on this day in 1953
“Our world is driven by our remarkable ability to carefully measure and divide units of time. In a reasonable sense, the invention of clocks has had a greater effect on our lives than the invention of wheels. You can invent wheels relatively easily, if you live where trees fall over.” – Bill Nye (the Science Guy), born on this day in 1955
- NPR Books: The Motive of the Mapmaker
- NY Review of Books: Thomas Nagel on morality and dignity
Thanks be to God for this new day, may it be full of beauty and grace!
