An Oreo cookie. The Steinway grand piano. Quintessence: "The most perfect embodiment of something" (Random House)
We begin with the thought of small perfections, and how often in life, these are the objects and ideas that give us the greatest pleasure.
Betty Cornfeld's book is a delight. I prefer the 1983 edition, but a 2001 edition is in print.


  1. I have never heard about this book - It sounds very interesting.
