“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

I'm showing my daughter Claire around Rice's library today. It's an incredibly beautiful one, with these glass quiet spaces with chairs and whiteboards to do Serious Thinking in. It also has rather fab music and DVD collections. You can see the whole school from the second floor. The conference space has a Tardis like ceiling.

As you can imagine, Claire is super into reading.
