Publisher's Summary

This essay comes from the NPR series This I Believe, which features brief personal reflections from both famous and unknown Americans. The pieces that make up the series compel listeners to rethink not only what and how they have arrived at their beliefs, but also the extent to which they share them with others.

Brief and Unsatisfying

While these snippets from the book are reduced in price, I do not think there is enough material here to justify even a nominal charge. I listened to this excerpt shortly after listening to "Miles Gone By" which contains lengthy ruminations by WFB on his Catholic faith. By comparison, this "essay" sounds like cocktail-party chat. Neither enjoyable nor enlightening.

Words of more than one syllable

I miss the man. The story is short but too long to tweet. Thank you audible for this gem from the jewelers eye.

WFB Superstar

Miss his wit and wisdom. A voice of reason in the storm of sound bites. May he rest in peace.

Very much with us...

We've all heard it said that "so and so" is still with us. Never has this been closer to objective truth than now as we reflect upon and react to his thoughts, words and values. With the exception of being differently filling than a mutton chop, Bill remains at our side as we continue in our efforts to memorize Funk, Wagnalls, Merriam, etc., etc.
