I really appreciate dr narby and his work; perhaps this book fell flat for me by no fault of its own but merely because I'm overly familiar with the subject. It did have interesting nuggets that amounted to the gratification of, say, an episode of Ra...more

Jeremy Narby
“The rational approach start from the idea that everything is explainable and that mystery is in some sense the enemy. This means that it prefers pejorative, and even wrong, answers to admitting its own lack of understanding.”
Jeremy Narby, The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge

Eckhart Tolle
“Life is the dancer and you are the dance.”
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

R.D. Laing
“Perfection is something we should all strive for. It's a duty and a joy to perfect one's nature... The most difficult thing is love. A loveless, driving person that just competes in the rat race is far from perfection in my book.”
R.D. Laing

Carl Oglesby
“The expansionary dynamic of Western culture has been the root, the denominating constant, of modern history. The grandeur of Western liberalism, its material abundance, the flourishing of its arts and sciences, its painful construction of constitutional democracy -- these interconnected achievements have been financed by the sustained theft called imperialism.”
Carl Oglesby, Containment and Change

Eckhart Tolle
“Whatever you accept completely, you go beyond...If you fight it, you're stuck with it.”
Eckhart Tolle, Realizing the Power of Now
