Favorite Thing I Read Today – from Guide to Gargoyles by Wendy True Gasch

Two things, actually.

• “What is the meaning of these unclean monkeys, these savage lions, and monstrous creatures?” ~ St Bernard, 12th century

• “Indiana oolitic limestone is relatively soft and easily cut when first quarried, but it hardens during prolonged exposure to air, enhancing the lifespan of whatever form it takes.”

Which is why they built then National Cathedral with it, which is where I bought this book, which is because I love gargoyles, which is why I’m sharing it.
