KCT Thought of the Week, December 14, 2012

"The day was coming, nor was it far off, if he read the signs of the times aright, when, at least in America, it would be difficult to put down roots in any one place, roots sufficiently strong and deep to hold one against the fluctuations already apparent in the changing face of things.  A man's roots mattered, he thought, his identification with a given place which might well serve as an anchor to windward against the storms of time and chance."  Mary Ellen Chase in "Windswept"
