Henry Ward Beecher

The following quote of the day on my Google homepage is from Beecher:

Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?
  – Henry Ward Beecher

I am weak in this bibliophilic way.  What’s really interesting is that I was in an airport bookstore the other day in Chicago and saw a biography out on Beecher that I wanted to buy.  My human nature was stronger that day, mostly due to the fact that I didn’t have room to carry in on the plane with me.
