QuotationAfter dinner began a book on Nicholas of Cusa recently requested by the library-(Dolan, introduction and selections). He is someone to whom I am much attracted. I have only read the De Visione Dei and that only in translation, and found it dry. Nevertheless something tells me to keep trying. His manly idealism fascinates me. And there are so many conflicting judgments about him that I want to arrive at one of my own!
