“Do we never hear the question “What is the harm of it?” asked about reading certain books, following certain pursuits, taking our recreation in certain ways? Perhaps… we need change of thought and rest of brain. “What is the harm of the latest novel, even if it happens to be rather unprofitable?” And we (who have not time to read one out of a thousand of the real books that have been written) spend a precious hour by deliberate choice over something not worthwhile; and when our immediate world interrupts us, breaking in upon us with some call, do we find that we come back to it with quite undistracted gladness?” ~ Amy Carmichael
