I think I like this guy:


“When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.” Desiderius Erasmus

    An excellent quote, but unfortunately his theology is filled with error.

    Reblogged this on Next Action Consulting Group and commented:
    I found this very amusing after posting my ‘Reading List’ page.

    I’m not altogether on what errors he may have held, but I know he had a heart for the Protestant Reformation and did invaluable work which eventually led to our King James Version Bible. I can identify with his quote too!

    It was my motto at theological college.
