QuotationInto the middle of all this came [Antonin] Sertillanges' La Vie Intellectuelle [Paris, 1944] which might have what I need to cheer me up and keep me organized. I have glanced at it here and there and it has one me the effect that Dale Carnegie's "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" might have on a despondent salesman. Definitely, I have simply got to make time for this book and get at it and finish it, patiently, and not let myself be eaten up by fan mail or other chores that do not really count...
