About this title


"Fools Never Raise Their Thoughts So High" is a humorous look at the life of my father, Robert Lloyd Johnson. He and my mother, his wife, born Lois Ethel Thompson, raised four children in Harlem (Manhattan) and the Bronx, NY from the 1940's through the 1960's. I always considered him a wise and witty person who had a strong sense of pride, and valued his role as a husband and father. He loved to laugh, he loved to listen to music, he loved to read, he loved to dance, he loved to entertain and be entertained.

The title of the book comes from the fourth verse of the hymn by Isaac Watts, "Sweet Is the Work, My God, My King." Daddy repeated that line very often. He frequently quoted lines from poems, hymns, the Holy Bible, and other literary works. "Slick" from Sugar Hill was his nickname as he grew into manhood. His most often used words were, "fool, fools, and foolish." He used them when talking to us at home about others.

When people talk about my father, there is always a smile on their face. I sincerely hope you can say that same about your Dad and the men who influenced your life. Enjoy! - The author, Lloyd R. Johnson
