Quote for the day: the question of fiction

"A college president I know keeps three books on his night table: the Bible, the Iliad, and Louis Auchincloss' 1964 novel The Rector of Justin.  When I once asked him, 'Why the novel?,' he responded, 'Because it raises questions I cannot answer or ignore, the sort of questions that possess a wisdom apart from answers.'"  ~~ David V. Hicks, Norms and Nobility
