Splash du Jour: Monday

Oh, great, divinely bounding wisdom of walls and barriers! They are, perhaps, the greatest of man’s inventions. Man ceased to be a wild animal only when he built the first wall.
-- Yevgeny Zamiatin, We (1924) --


Have a great Monday!

I have not read this book Isabella. But I want to.
I have had it on my bookshelf for about 48 years...... time to pick it up maybe!
Thank you for this recommendation [I think].
I like books that make impressions!
