QuotationIn the hospital I have read a lot of Eckhart and am more and more convinced of his greatness. Before coming I went back to Kelley's translation of The Book of the Poor in Spirit. This is the kind of thing I am going to stay with now that I am "fre" and do not have to bother with nonsense that does not really interest me (politics).
