"Frequently we pray that God would not forsake us in the hour of trial and temptation, but we too much forget that we have need to use this prayer at all times. There is no moment of our life, however holy, in which we can do without His constant upholding. Whether in light or in darkness, in communion or in temptation, we alike need the prayer, 'Forsake me not, O Lord.' 'Hold Thou me up, and I shall be safe.'"

- Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening devotions
No, not that Lewis

Dale Nelson sends this link from Sacnoth's Scriptorium, discussing J. R. R. Tolkien's familiarity with, and appreciation of, Minnesota-born author Sinclair Lewis. "...Tolkien immediately segues into saying that he is now inclined to think that the word hobbit owes something to Lewis's BABBITT."

Minnesota -- an inexhaustible font of inspiration.
