Friends of Borges

"He who reads a line of Borges
(re)discovers the best library..." : Get Involve : Volunteer

Praxis : cooperate as an Architect of Good

"The true treasure of a Man
is the good he does on Earth"

"We must recognise that the doctrine revealed by Swedenborg
is more moral and reasonable than one that postulates a mysterious gift
gotten, almost by chance, at the eleventh hour.
To begin with, it leads us to the practice of virtue in our lives. "
J L Borges

“Every man is guilty of all the good he didn't do.”

but him who does it for love of it."
Henry David Thoreau
