“Iron sharpens iron and one man sharpens another.” Wise and profitable discourse sharpens men’s wits; and those that have ever so much knowledge may by conference have something added to them. It sharpens men’s looks, and, by cheering the spirits, puts a briskness and liveliness into the countenance, and gives a man such an air as shows he is pleased himself and makes him pleasing to those about him ... Men are filed, made smooth, and bright, and fit for business (who were rough, and dull, and inactive), by conversation.
- Matthew Henry (1706)
What a wonderful weekend. Thank you again, Tom, for your generosity to have us all over. Looking forward to next year!
