"Excessive pride is a familiar sin, but a man may just as easily frustrate the will of God through excessive humility."
~~ from The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
Another highly recommended book, and it doesn't disappoint. It is an official selection of Oprah's Book Club, which doesn't really mean anything to me, but it is probably among my favorites from the club. I only just finished the first chapter, but it is a spectacular story. I am seriously addicted to it. It is quite long - just shy of a thousand pages - but if you like historical fiction (and even if you don't), this book is a great read.
