Thought For The Day

I've been reading the new edition of some of Count Harry Kessler's diaries, and in it on 30 January, 1869, he made this undeniably true claim after
[s]omeone said that a book dealer had complained recently to him that the people who once bought books now ride bicycles. In realty bicyclists do more for the reawakening and understanding of art than the most diligent book worms in all the libraries put together.
He is, of course, right, although I would replace "book worms" with "anybody" and "of art" with "of everything."

Enjoy the weather.
