For many years, the author has used his enormous collection of quotations (this anthology is only the tip of the iceberg!) with students in qReflection Groupsq. Each week, 20 or 30 such groups meet at the University College chaplaincy for contemplation and discussion of a chosen theme. Beginning with quotations from the Bible, other sources are called upon to recollect the knowledge and wisdom of the past as well as present day insights. The aim is to enrich hearts and minds after the manner of Philippians 4:8, qWhatever is true...honourable...just...pure...lovely...gracious, think on these thingsq.526. 17. H.G.
