Thursday’s Piece

I think of the Spirit of Reasonableness as the highest and sanest ideal of culture, and the reasonable man as the highest type of cultivated human being. No one can be perfect; he can only aim at being a likeable, reasonable being…..The Reasonable Age, if that should ever come about, will be the Age of Peace…..”

(The Importance of Living by Lin Yutang, 1895 – 1976)
