Contest rules

One of the advantages of having unsorted stacks of papers around is that when you finally do go through them it is nearly like a treasure hunt. Who knows what might emerge from between an old magazine and a page of unclipped coupons?

Here is a recent find. A great quote from St. Basil:

So we must consider that a contest, the greatest of all contests, lies before us, for which we must do all things, and, in preparation for it, must strive to the best of our powers, and must associate with poets and writers of prose and orators and with all men from whom there is any prospect of benefit with reference to the care of our soul.

St. Basil
