Village: The Village Inn

Not Buckminster, but Thomas!:

Started by Alec avatar Alec

Thou mayest as well expect to grow stronger by always eating, as wiser by always reading. Too much overcharges Nature, and turns more into disease than nourishment. 'Tis thought and digestion which make books serviceable, and give health and vigor to the mind. -- Thomas Fuller This is attributed here to Buckminster Fuller. The language is all wrong for Bucky. It's from Thomas Fuller (1608-1661)
