Quote of the Day

“It is well for the heart to be naive and the mind not to be.”
– Anatole France

About Anatole France

Anatole France was the pen name of Nobel Prize–winning French author Jacques Anatole François Thibault. He was born in 1844 in Paris. His father was a book dealer, and France spent his life among books, including 14 years as assistant librarian to the French Senate. His novels, including the Contemporary Historyseries and The Gods Are Athirst, often use allegory and religious symbolism as vehicles for moral questions. He died in 1924.

I am skeptical and cynical by nature.  My mind often precludes letting my heart get involved.  I think this quote shows that a balance between the two is necessary.
