Quote of the Day: Walter Benjamin

For some diversion and pleasure as I am furiously busy, I am reading Michael Wood's The Road to Delphi: The Life and Afterlife of Oracles. In it he quotes Walter Benjamin:

A philosophy which does not include and cannot explain the possibility of prophecy by means of coffee grounds cannot be a true philosophy. (Walter Benjamin, Letters in Michael Wood, Road to Delphi, 20).

Maybe he used the "Christ the Magician" coffee mug!
