About

I may chance have some odd quirks and remnants of wit broken on me.
Much Ado About Nothing, II.iii.207-208

Hi, I’m MoMo! I love learning about literature, poetry, philosophy, theology, and art. At Remnants of Wit, I write about my thoughts on all of these things and how they relate to each other. Sometimes the posts are about art philosophy and its relation to classic works of literature. Other times, I definitively rank the top 7 male romantic leads in Shakespeare. You know, important stuff.

Fast facts:

  • I live in the United States.
  • I love reading. Favorite books include Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry, The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt, As You Like It by William Shakespeare, The Abolition of Man by C.S. Lewis, and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
  • My favorite poet is Gerard Manley Hopkins.
  • I love movies by Hayao Miyazaki.
  • I write stories sometimes because I think writing is fun.
  • I love baking, and I force my twin sister to wash my dishes in exchange for the food I bake.
  • I regard buttered toast as one of life’s great joys.

  1. -I adore Much Ado About Nothing, and that is a lovely quote. I hadn’t made the connection between that play and your blog name for some reason!
    – I also adore As You Like It. Also, The Book Thief is one of the best books ever written. I just reread it for perhaps the fourth or fifth time. I’m still recovering.
    -“Margaret, are you grieving over Goldengrove unleaving? Leaves, like the things of man, you with your fresh thoughts care for, can you?” I could go on; I have that entire poem memorised for some reason! Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ve read anything else by Gerard Manley Hopkins. I’ll be sure to remedy that!
    -That is the best reason to write, honestly.
    -Baking is great.
    -So is buttered toast.

    I really need to read more of your blog, because I really enjoy everything I have read so far. And this is a lovely About page. 🙂
