“To love mankind for the sake of God-that has been the most noble and far-fetched feeling yet achieved by human beings. The idea that without some sanctifying ulterior motive, a love of mankind is just one more brutish stupidity, that the predisposition to such a love must first find its weight, its refinement, its grain of salt and pinch of ambergris in another even higher predisposition-whoever first felt and 'witnessed' this, and however much his tongue may have stuttered in attempting to express such a delicate idea: may he remain forever venerable and holy in our sight as the man who as yet has flown the highest and erred the most beautifully!”

Does anyone else drift off into daydreams that aren't visualisations of what you're reading whilst reading? I can't help it, my mind always begins to wonder even while I'm still reading. Eventually I come back and I've forgotten everything I've read and have to reread. I don't know how to stop this habit. It really gets in the way of me being able to comfortably read since I have to reread everything two, three, or four times. My mind is always wandering, and it's not out of boredom since it's almost always ideas that the book has given me to think about. Does anyone else suffer like me?

Simone de Beauvoir

I finished The Second Sex not too long ago and it really shook the foundations of my worldview. But now I did some secondary reading and I'm really quite shocked at what Beauvoir did in her life. She molested some underage female students of hers and not only is this pedophila (which I hate) but Beauvoir is arguably in a position of power over these women. I don't quite see how this is any different from the patriarchal oppression that she writes scathingly about in her book. And, secondly, she was in a loose life-long relationship with Sartre but would get really jealous when Sartre had sex with other women (even though Beauvoir had sex with other men and women). She apparently turned down a man who proposed to her whom she loved but said that she couldn't do it because she "owed too much" to Sartre. Everything she did in her life was the exact opposite of what she advocated in her book. She seems so dishonest now. I'm not sure if I should just forget about this or try to reconcile her life with her work.

I'm currently finishing up Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood." Is this a good followup? I'd rather not get too into whether or not people believe it is totally accurate or biased. I'm more interested in how it reads as a piece of literature. It is one of the books Werner Herzog encourages his students to read. Have you read it? Is it at all comparable to In Cold Blood? Cheers.

Would someone please tell me the name of a book, or movie, doesn't matter, that accurately relates the story of Henry VIII of England? I know that this isn't /r but figured some folk here might know.

Are thoughts + language independent from one another? Are people's views limited to how well they are able to express themselves? Does a poor command of language impair reasoning?

Dear /lit/, Many would say that Shakespeare's 'To Be Or Not To Be' speech is the finest and most well known speech in the history of English literature, and perhaps the language itself. I think that's complete bullshit. I know there are better speeches than an existential crisis by Hamlet. What do you think? Should I kill myself for being wrong, or am I actually on to something?
