I hark, hark(!) for anthologies of essays on interesting topics, even if reading and reviewing them as a group at times seems impossible. This one...well, it's maddening that Reader's Digest was trying to reinforce Christianity and chastity in 1967, as the Vietnam war lacerated conventionality. The essays against sex come right before the essays about enjoying life of course. So it contains the memorable line "men who are having sex all the time are in fact not having enough sex", 20 pages before the essay "Pick More Daisies".
To give praise where it's due, it does contain an essay by Winston Churchill about the wonders of learning to work with oil paint for the first time. It has another good one about the joys of reading aloud and singing together. And its advice about generating and writing down ideas no matter where you are is how I generally do things. Then again, a lot of the book is educational pamphlets for more efficient American workers and salesmen. The difference between homily and homely is only a difference of "I". I invented that.
