Erratic Erudition

Erratic Erudition

The posts collected here tend to oscillate wildly in both temperament and girth. It’s obscure detritus that I thought was interesting (that I might one day be able to blurt out, with a bit of savoir faire to make it sound like I am more knowledgeable about the world than I really am).

Mostly quotes and passages from books I liked. All flotsam is usually inexpertly paired together with my own musings which will then underscore how stupid I really am.
