Would you have guessed Lincoln said that?
In that spirit of surprise, who do you think said the following?
Once again I'm having one of those weeks when I don't read the Bible much; I never quite know what to do about it. I have no feeling of obligation about it, and I know, too, that after some time I'll plunge into it again voraciously. May one accept this as an entirely 'natural' mental process? I'm almost inclined to think so; it also happened, you know, during our vita communis. Of course there is the danger of laziness, but it would be wrong to get anxious about it; we can depend upon it that after the compass has wobbled a bit, it will point in the right direction again.
I'll give some hints throughout the day if they are needed.
Hint #1: Not an American
Hint #2: Brother-in-law was Jewish
Hint #3: Wrote letters we still read today
Hint #4: Knew the cost
Hint #5: Loved Negro Spirituals
Also, how do you feel about the Bible these days? Do you read it? Why? If you are in one of those seasons where you don't read it, how do you feel about that?
