"Just for argument's sake" (again)(again)

"Was I fooling myself? I know myself to be a man skilled in self-deception, and so maybe (for the sake of argument, for the sake of whatever truth may be in argument) I ought to suppose that I was fooling myself."
~Jayber Crow, Wendell Berry

  1. Jayber Crow makes my life better.
    oh wow.

  2. Everybody should read chapter 23 of that book. Everybody should read that book.
