QuotationToday my usual routine was turned upside down-lately I have been intellectually overfed and in the mornings I read less and less. Today I read almost nothing at all in the early morning, a bit of Dorothy Emmett's book, which is good, and a couple of pages of the Castelli volume-the symposium on hermeneutics. Like it, but I have to stop. I can't cover much ground. The piece by G. Fessard, S.J., seems to me absolutely insane. What kind of a joker is this? A lot of other stuff is good, though: H. Mt. [Mount Athos], Ricoeur, etc.
