Walker Weed sent me the following:
Your writing reiterates a favorite quotation of mine by JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE (1749-1832)

"The time has now come when any man who cannot turn to some form of art or handicraft is extremely unfortunate. With the world moving at its present pace, mere knowledge avails us nothing; by the time a man has taken note of all there is to know, he has lost his essential self."

What would Goethe have thought of our information age?
Not much.
