I loved Martyn Waits use of Newcastle space and solid socio-political theme in earlier novels like MARY'S PRAYER and CANDLELAND - the former of which owed something to Ted Lewis and GET CARTER. But he's grown to maturity as a writer with the Joe Dono ...more

Robert Browning
“Best be yourself, imperial, plain, and true.”
Robert Browning

Robert Browning
“Out of your whole life give but a moment!
All of your life that has gone before,
All to come after it, -so you ignore,
So you make perfect the present, condense,
In a rapture of rage, for perfection's endowment,
Thought and feeling and soul and sense. ”
Robert Browning

Herbert Marcuse
“Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.”
Herbert Marcuse

Karl Marx
“Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past. The tradition of all dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living. And just as they seem to be occupied with revolutionizing themselves and things, creating something that did not exist before, precisely in such epochs of revolutionary crisis they anxiously conjure up the spirits of the past to their service, borrowing from them names, battle slogans, and costumes in order to present this new scene in world history in time-honored disguise and borrowed language.”
Karl Marx

Vladimir Lenin
“Despair is typical of those who do not understand the causes of evil, see no way out, and are incapable of struggle.”
Vladimir Lenin
