“Gods and politics are the tools with which the godless and unprincipled manipulate the gullible.”
Janet E. Morris

“You never saw them; you never met them; you were never touched by their suffering except on the evening news or at the occasional fundraiser. They were what they were because they were uncivilized, unteachable, underprivileged and unsalvageable. They were the underclasses, and you found a use for them, because without their cheap labor and their primitive wars, your own world of mirrored towers and imported luxuries and megabuck negotiations could never exist.”
Janet E. Morris, Outpassage

“Changes in the heavens wrought changes on the earth.”
Janet E. Morris, The Sacred Band

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Gods and politics are the tools with which the godless and unprincipled manipulate the gullible.”
Janet E. Morris

“The beauty of melancholy cannot be attained by looking. You must embrace the terror it breeds. Then you will be pleased.”
S.E. Lindberg, Lords of Dyscrasia

“What is wrong with being a devout follower? Is it not acceptable to be sad and alone, if you remain loyal and obedient?”
S.E. Lindberg, Lords of Dyscrasia

“Have you ever dreamt? At night, with your eyes closed?... Then you know that even with eyes closed, even in complete darkness, your mind can fill a frame for you, your soul, to observe and experience – a stage with color and atmosphere are as realistic as the visions you perceive while awake. This is how we Elders and the undead see, for we look at the world through an astral plane congruent with physical reality, where emotions are tangible shapes, and hopes, fears, and regrets collect themselves into transparent auras.”
S.E. Lindberg, Lords of Dyscrasia
