Thought for today ...

All the efforts of the human mind cannot exhaust the essence of a single fly.

- Thomas Aquinas, born on this date in 1225


  1. Actually, not born, but celebrated, no?

  2. Well, it is certainly his feast day. But those are usually on the the date of a saint's death (birth into eternity). But Thomas died on March 7, 1274. I don't know if we actually know his birth date. But the Wikipedia entry for births on this date has today as his birthday, and I ran with that.
