QuotationLeaving Gethsemani was very sad....I went to the Cathedral [of Louisville], then to the Public Library: there I read a chapter-the one on Free Will-in Gilson's Spirit of Medieval Philosophy. In the Public Library I didn't even feel like reading any of Evelyn Waugh's fine travel book They Were Still Dancing which I read between trains there before.
