December 7, Sunday afternoon -- Reading great philosophers

On Valencia Street, near 19th, looking out from a puppet box
Reading Philosophical Truths.

For 25 cents he will give you advice. He offers you a cup of tea, salutes you with a toast, and then, silent introduction complete, he peers at you through a magnifying glass, consults his book, and types you a piece of advice on a miniature typewriter. He is a darling and a gentleman.

The puppet's name is Toby, and the puppeteer is Laurie O'Brien--

What books do you consult for advice?
