Good morning everyone! I have migrated my blog to a new home. I would love for you to come over and add your email to it so that you can continue to receive updates and encouragement from me. You can find the new home for my blog at: http://www.authormichaelduncan.com/blog. I will be shutting this one down in about a week, so head on over!

God bless.

Michael’s Recent Updates

Michael Duncan is now friends with Linda O'Dell
Civil Disobedience and Other Essays by Henry David Thoreau
“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things..”
Henry David Thoreau
“I am, and always will be, the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”
Eleventh Doctor

“If history is written by the victorious, what if the victors lied?”
Michael Duncan

“As the historian Appian records: “So perished on the Capitol, and while still tribune, Gracchus, the son of that Gracchus who was twice consul, and of Cornelia, daughter of that Scipio who robbed Carthage of her supremacy. He lost his life in consequence of a most excellent design too violently pursued; and this abominable crime, the first that was perpetrated in the public assembly, was seldom without parallels thereafter from time to time.”
Michael Duncan, The Storm Before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic

“If history is written by the victorious, what if the victors lied?”
Michael Duncan

“Heart isn’t something you find in soap operas and Harlequin novels. It’s that pure essence–sheltered deep inside–that occasionally makes its way to the surface. Give heed lest it ever trend to waste.”
James D. Maxon

“If you measure your life by what you own, the cavern of your heart will never be filled.”
James D. Maxon

“Who should we be trying to make the most proud? Our family? Our friends? Our teachers or bosses? What about the one who molded us out of the earth itself, who formed us like clay, and instilled within us the very breath of life that shaped the universe?”
James D. Maxon

“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
