"In order that the mind may not be taxed, moreover, by the manifold and confused reading of so many such things, and in order to prevent the escape of something valuable that we have read, heard, or discovered through the process of thinking itself, it will be found very useful to entrust to notebooks ... those things which seem noteworthy and striking."

[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]

The Christmas festival is not primarily a historical commemoration of the birth at Bethlehem but the celebration of God’s eschatological self-disclosure in the Christ-event.

[Christmas: Reginald H. Fuller, Preaching the Lectionary]
