QuotationMy friend, the Abbe Fillion, has written a book that is in some ways strange. However, it is very good-especially for someone like myself-to read, under obedience, a book that I would not otherwise have touched with a ten foot pole. Now, although I still think some of his notions are funny, I have conceived a real affection for Fillion because his book has brought so many graces with it.
