Generally speaking, it must be confessed that he is too fond of rushing off to the landlord. In his Travels in Russia, Theophile Gautier has a striking word concerning this perilous proclivity. 'Whatever is of real use to man,' he says, 'was invented from the beginning of the world, and all the people who have come along since have worn their brains out to find something new, but have made no improvements. Change is far from being progress; it is not yet proved that steamers are better than sailing-vessels, or railways than horse traffic.

3 or 4 stars? I liked this book, and yet it lingered on my "Currently Reading" shelf for six months. I think that was because it was on Kindle. This book of devotional essays reminded me of flannel graph lessons from my youth.

I appreciated his concept of how fear can function as the beginning of wisdom in that the emotion can prevent foolishness, but that fear must b

I am rapidly falling in love with F.W. Boreham. I was led to his works in a powerful way and so I knew that, without a doubt, I needed to read his stuff and I am currently working through three of his offerings and I am enamored. He sees the natural world in such a perfect and beautiful way and he i
