Über michI graduated from law school in 2007, after a long, meandering, procrastination-induced voyage through graduate school in economics. I'm now working as an attorney in Denver, raising two amazing daughters, and spending every free moment I can at our house in the mountains, so I'm not doing much pleasure reading. All I ever really wanted to do, though, was walk around the Painted Stoa having discussions about aesthetics and metaphysics.

"Dilettanti, dilettanti! This is the slighting way in which those who pursue any branch of art or learning for the love and enjoyment of the thing,---per il loro diletto, are spoken of by those who have taken it up for the sake of gain, attracted solely by the prospect of money. This contempt of theirs comes from the base belief that no man will seriously devote himself to a subject, unless he is spurred on to it by want, hunger, or else some form of greed. The public is of the same way of thinking; and hence its general respect for professionals and its distrust of dilettanti. But the truth is that the dilettante treats his subject as an end, whereas the professional, pure and simple, treats it merely as a means. He alone will be really in earnest about the matter, who has a direct interest therein, takes to it because he likes it, and pursues it con amore."

---Schopenhauer, "On Men of Learning"

Über meine BibliothekA little of this, a little of that. I like everything from Lemony Snicket to Chamfort to Schopenhauer to Baudelaire to Swinburne to O'Neill...
