The Stargate Conspiracy by Lynn Picknett
"Before the Millennium, publishers piled in to exploit cultural paranoia about the event as they were to do with the Mayan nonsense before 2012 and no doubt will do when Apophis cames hurtling around in 2029. This book is part of that first wave.

Michael  Brown
“A reliable indicator we have entered present moment awareness is if our experience, no matter how comfortable or uncomfortable it may feel at any given moment, is infused with gratefulness.”
Michael Brown, The Presence Process - A Journey Into Present Moment Awareness

John Kennedy Toole
“...I doubt very seriously whether anyone will hire me.'

What do you mean, babe? You a fine boy with a good education.'

Employers sense in me a denial of their values.' He rolled over onto his back. 'They fear me. I suspect that they can see that I am forced to function in a century I loathe. This was true even when I worked for the New Orleans Public Library.”
John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces

Andrea Dworkin
“But Dracula, the book, the myth, goes beyond metaphor in its intuitive rendering of an oncoming century filled with sexual horror: the throat as a female genital; sex and death as synonyms; killing as a sex act; slow dying as sensuality; men watching the slow dying, and the watching is sexual; mutilation of the female body as male heroism and adventure; callous, ruthless, predatory lust as the one-note meaning of sexual desire; intercourse itself needing blood, someone's, somewhere, to count as a sex act in a world excited by sado-masochism, bored by the dull thud-thud of the literal fuck. The new virginity is emerging, a twentieth century nightmare: no matter how much we have fucked, now matter with how many, now matter with what intensity or obsession or commitment or conviction (believing that sex is freedom) or passion or promiscuous abandon, no matter how often or where or when or how, we are virgins, innocents, knowing nothing, untouched, unless blood has been spilled – ours: not the blood of the first time; the blood of every time; this elegant blood-letting of sex a so-called freedom exercised in alienation, cruelty, and despair. Trivial and decadent; proud; foolish; liars; we are free.”
Andrea Dworkin

George Orwell
“Trust a snake before a Jew and a Jew before a Greek,but don't trust an Armenian”
George Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London

John O'Donohue
“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.”
John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
