It's Important To Think When You're Being Mindless

Otherwise you wind up like me, steeped in the study of history that I am, walking from work to my apartment today, whistling a stirring anthem. I was like "Hey, this is catchy; I wonder what it is?" until I realized that it was the Horst Wessel Song.

Actually, it's probably more the Wolfenstein 3D and Indiana Jones movies that embedded it in my head, but still, you have to admit that it's stirring. Evil, but stirring.

Because the Pun Is Strong In This One...

...I direct your attention to Heller Kitty.

Quote Help?

I've got a partial recollection of a quote that's been in my head, but apparently I can't remember it well enough for Google to find it. I'm pretty sure it's from a movie, and was said in an accent similar to Peter O'Toole's. Essentially, it's something like "He walks like a man who carries his importance as though he were afraid of breaking it." That's only the gist, and while I'm 100% sure of the "afraid of breaking it" part, I'm only 75% sure that the subject was "his importance" and not all that sure of the rest of it.

It's possible that I read this in Lewis or Chesterton, but I'm pretty sure it's from a movie. Perhaps it was Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons? Has anyone heard this before?

The Answer Is "Yes"

Well, I'm honored.

I've been mostly lurking among blogs lately, with the occasional comment here and there. I'd like to finish The Brothers Karamazov, That Hideous Strength, and several books on Church history before blogging again; hopefully those will recharge my brain. At this point, writer's block is so bad that I can't even come up with clever AIM away messages!
