This is a passionate book filled with such raw emotion that the power flows from each page. The title "Release: You" is perfectly fitting. These pages speak directly to the injustices of our society. Not just those that we understand on a daily basis ...more

“The corpses in the wasteland of past and present haunt us. We are still in Eliot's land of the dead, imprisoned in Kafka's penal colony, running from the unexplained rage of the golem, listening to Lovecraft's drumbeat of horror, and shivering in the chilly shadow of Grau and Murnau's Nosferatu. We cannot awaken from history.”
W. Scott Poole

Friedrich Nietzsche
“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Wendell Berry
“There appears to be a law that when creatures have reached the level of consciousness, as men have, they must become conscious of the creation; they must learn how they fit into it and what its needs are and what it requires of them, or else pay a terrible penalty: the spirit of the creation will go out of them, and they will become destructive; the very earth will depart from them and go where they cannot follow.”
Wendell Berry, Recollected Essays, 1965-1980

Anne Frank
“No country sacrifices its men without reason, and certainly not in the interests of another, and England is no exception. The invasion, liberation and freedom will come someday; yet England, not the occupied territories, will choose the moment.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

André Maurois
“In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.”
