For years, Mitford's Father Tim Kavanagh has transcribed into his dog-eared journals words of wisdom, faith, and encouragement gleaned from favorite thinkers.

Indeed, A Continual Feast contains lively ideas, common sense, profound wisdom, and plain good humor from the likes of C. S. Lewis, Emily Dickinson, William Blake, Helen Keller, G. K. Chesterton, and Will Rogers. To name but a few.

Want to know a surefire way to read someone's true character?

Check out what Goethe has to say.

Strive to be that rare individual who labors to serve others, and what will you have? "Little competition," according to Andrew Carnegie.

This entertaining and useful handbook is for all those who relish a good "Aha!," including authors, clergy, speechmakers, dog lovers, and anyone who enjoys provocative insight into everything from the righteous to the ridiculous.

Together with its companion volume, Patches of Godlight , Father Tim's latest quote journal is sure proof of what Lord Byron once penned: "A small drop of ink produces that which makes thousands think."

Fun quotes to remember that Father Tim jots down - sometimes it's tricky reading the handwritten cursive script, which is the only drawback.
