Daily Dose

From Inner Workings: Literary Essays 2000 - 2005, by J. M. Coetzee


"There is a certain sophistication, governed by unspoken social consensus, whose nature lies in taking things simply for what they seem to be. It is this sort of social wisdom, whose other name might be tact, that we are in danger of denying our Victorian forebears."

From Walt Whitman
