Food for thought…


It has to be said – a great number of those among you who consider yourselves to be intelligent, leave a lot to be desired! The other day I posted the following passage from a well-known book onto my Facebook page. Given that most of my followers there are writers, I expected at least one or two to react. Needless to say not one of the sixty-five obliged. Very disappointing!!!

So, lets see if at least one of the 821 followers of this blog reacts positively…


Guess which book this passage is taken from???

A few minutes before, there had only been three real things before me—the immensity of the night and space and nature, my own feebleness and anguish, and the near approach of death. Now it was as if something turned over, and the point of view altered abruptly. There was no sensible transition from one state of mind to the other. I was immediately the self of every day again—a decent, ordinary citizen.


PS – there is a simple way for you to give me the correct answer. I know because I tried it. Before you ask me, no I’m not telling you how. Don’t let me down…

PPS – just clicking like won’t cut it!!!!

    • Well done to Ken, Allan and Chris. Only people of a certain age will have read the original book with its sprinkling of Victorian/Edwardian puzzling words like Gride, a transitive verb. 1 archaic : to pierce or gash with a weapon. 2 : to scrape or graze so as to produce a harsh rasping sound. 😉
