Enjoyed re-reading this book after forgetting it probably for 20 years. Even though I remembered "who-done-it", the developing relationship and friendship between Elijah and Daneel is fun to watch, as well as being re-introduced to the three laws of...more

As we approach the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand on the 28th of June, I thought I would read how WWI started. This is a 10 star book, really amazingly written and terrifyingly apt for today. Instead of writing about the...more

John F. Kennedy
“The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.”
John F. Kennedy

C.S. Lewis
“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, and Other Addresses

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
Jim Elliot

C.S. Lewis
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis
“Reality, in fact, is usually something you could not have guessed. That is one of the reasons I believe Christianity. It is a religion you could not have guessed. If it offered us just the kind of universe we had always expected, I should feel we were making it up. But, in fact, it is not the sort of thing anyone would have made up. It has just that queer twist about it that real things have. So let us leave behind all these boys' philosophies--these over simple answers. The problem is not simple and the answer is not going to be simple either.”
C.S. Lewis
