Over the past few days I have been reading from The Oxford Book of Essays. The essays are arranged in chronological order so I read them alphabetically. It was an eclectic mix - Churchill, Baldwin, TS Eliot, Churchill's was one of the best where he describes meeting his dad in a dream and telling him all the things that had happened over the last 50 years. At the very end his dad says 'and what were you doing over this time with wars and tragedies for civilization?' then he wakes up.
A host of different quotes and interesting articles.
