Quotes Lee Liked

Lee  Thompson
“Their dad said, “Heaven is beautiful like your mother was beautiful, but like it beauty is fleeting and once beheld for years, for decades, gold that seemed precious and unique no longer holds the significance it once held to the one who has possessed it and been possessed by it. And heaven resides in God’s breast, not the true god, for there is no true god, only many faces and many incarnations of want, of structure, of meaning. And his heart-tent is vast drawing to it those who swear allegiance to beauty and partial truth. Partial,” their father said, stroking Maggie’s arm, “because truth is independent of religion or creed or upbringing. It is a matter of the heart, separate from fact, without the limitations of doctrine. And what would heaven feel like? More of the same corrupt single-mindedness of a deity who abhors independence, who truly and fiercely fights the accumulation of knowledge in its worshipers. So the weak run to it, the road-weary, the undecided. Because God makes things easy, they do not have to make choices for themselves, they do not have to study the greater mysteries that echo like a clarion call in their souls and resonate in their hearts, seeds planted in the dark soil of their youth that are burned to chaff in the commonplace, never tilled or watered, hopeless due to acquiescence.”
Lee Thompson, The Collected Songs of Sonnelion

Shaun Ryan Some of your best work yet.

Lee Thompson Thanks, bro. I'm excited about this book more than any other I've written for some reason.

Shaun Ryan Sure, because you're writing it now. The next one will be the same. And the next, and the next, and the next... Or should be. Like songs. Are you more excited about the one you wrote two years ago, or the one you're currently composing? Or like women... :)

Lee Thompson Wonderful! Hang onto your hat, bud. It's a wild ride!

Chris After reading ch. 20 of The Collected Songs of Sonnelion by Lee Thompson I just want Red to keep that bandage off of his hand and destroy the whole town so that Maggie, Amy and him can finally be safe. Hopefully he finally destroys Abraham and Lucas. I don't know what is stopping him from doing so?
