One of the annoying things about Adam Curry is that just when I think I've got him pegged as a stoner who got lucky, he does something that indicates that there's more behind those pink glasses than his pop-culture self lets on. In this case, it was quoting Robertson Davies, which lead me to assorted quotes by Robertson Davies, which lead me to this reminder of how much I enjoyed re-reading The Cornish Trilogy[Wiki] a few months ago:

A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.
