You can judge pride by the positioning of a book
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".
"Notice how often today authors will have their picture taken with their book in their left hand, the title in full view of the camera, so that the photograph may tell the story: 'Look, Ma! My Book!' Television commentators have books on their desks with the title toward the audience so that the audience may be impressed. No one who reads books at a desk ever has the titles turned away - but toward himself. Perhaps some day when there are diaphonous walls, the intelligentsia will keep the titles on ther bookshelves turned toward the wall so their next door neighbor will know how smart they are."
