QuotationYesterday in Louisville... After that, had a good day in the library. Some C. F. Andrews on Gandhi (the concept of svadharma [personal service] important for me!). A book on Etruscan painting; some Latin American prints (good ones by Portinari). Looked briefly at Kierkegaard's Either/Or. Tatum, St. [an] Getz, etc. on record. New Statesman and Nation-special number on American Lit. with a tender essay by V. S. Pritchett on the Beat Generation, and what seemed to me a very good, or at least readable, poem by Lowell about his father.
