Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

On the Bookshelf—Pink

Though pink was not her favorite color, it was a color, and as Sir Benjamin had said, all color is of the sun, and good. And pink is the color of dawn and sunset, the link between day and night. Sun and moon alike ought both to love pink because when one is rising and the other setting they so often greet each other across an expanse of rosy sky.

—from The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge
