Aim above morality. Be not simply good be good for something.

Faith never makes a confession.
The fact that books today are mostly a string of words makes it easier to forget the text. With the impact of the iPad and the future of the book being up for re-imagination I wonder whether we'll rediscover the importance of making texts richer visually.
