Mid Week Quote: Bede

Happy Wednesday Everybody.

I hope everyone is having a good month so far. I must admit my diary is looking scarier with each week in September so at the moment not much reading is happening sadly.

This weeks quote is one to think about as could reading about good deeds encourage good deeds, but also could reading about bad deeds encourage bad deeds?

This weeks quote is by a monk called Bede born in 673, who at the age of seven, became a junior monk under Benedict Biscop founder of the monastery of St Peter in Wearmouth. Bede moved to Jarrow where he lived until his death in 735. Bede’s great work was Ecclesiastical History of the English Nation.

 

“If history records good things of good men, the thoughtful hearer is encouraged to imitate what is good.”

 

Bede 731 CE

 

Happy reading.
