Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv
Rate this book
Clear rating
It starts to lag toward the end, and can be hard to read due to the way it reveals modern parenting to be slow motion child abuse for which future society will surely pay the price. But it's important to read it anyway, and not to give up on reversin ...more

Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury

Rb mainly gives all the same advice of other writers (write every day, don't fear bad drafts, don't think about getting published paid or praised), but his attitude is refreshingly chipper. He conveys daily writing as a joy and understands the imagin ...more

If I'd read this at another time in my life, it may have struck me as just a bunch of blah blah blah, but it found me in the right moment and I couldn't put it down. Kind if proves the guy's theory about readiness and receptivity.

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

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

Alejandro Jodorowsky
“And I imagine... with great pleasure... all the horrible stirrings of the nonmanifested to bring forth the scream which creates the universe. Maybe one day I'll see you trembling, and you'll go into convulsion and grow larger and smaller until your mouth opens and the world will come from your mouth, escaping through the window like a river, and it will flood the city. And then we'll begin to live. ”
Alejandro Jodorowsky

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
