"Being an archaeologist for the past 25 years, I know why I got into the business. This book interested me because it discussed how others got into archaeology, while discussing how archaeologists do what they do and why its important. Good book fo..." Read more of this review »

James Baldwin
“Heavenly witnesses are a tricky lot, to be used by whoever is closest to Heaven at the time. And legend and theology, which are designed to sanctify our fears, crimes, and aspirations, also reveal them for what they are.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

William Faulkner
“Tell about the South. What's it like there. What do they do there. Why do they live there. Why do they live at all.”
William Faulkner, Absalom, Absalom!

Eleanor Roosevelt
“You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

James Baldwin
“The subtle and deadly change of heart that might occur in you would be involved with the realization that a civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked but only that they be spineless.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

Wendell Berry
“From other stories that have been handed down to me I know that my people, like many others in the slave states, went to church with their slaves, were baptized with them, and presumably expected to associate with them in heaven. Again, I have been years realizing what this means, and what it has cost.

First, consider the moral predicament of the master who sat in church with his slaves, thus attesting his belief in the immortality of the souls of people whose bodies he owned and used. He thus placed his body, if not his mind, at the very crux of the deepest contradiction of his life. How could he presume to own the body of a man whose soul he considered as worthy of salvation as his own? To keep this question from articulating itself in his thoughts and demanding an answer, he had to perfect an empty space in his mind, a silence, between heavenly concerns and earthly concerns, between body and spirit. If there had ever opened a conscious connection between the two claims, if the two sides of his mind had ever touched, it would have been like building a fire in a house full of gunpowder: somewhere down deep in his mind he always knew of the danger, and his nerves were always alert to it.”
Wendell Berry, The Hidden Wound
