“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance, he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
Robert Jastrow, God and the Astronomers

Eugene Field
“No book can be appreciated until it has been slept with and dreamed over.”
Eugene Field

“‎Life is a shipwreck, but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats.”

Nikos Kazantzakis
“How could I, who loved life so intensely, have let myself be entangled for so long in that balderdash of books and paper blackened with ink!”
Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“Intercessory prayer is exceedingly prevalent. What wonders it has wrought! The Word of God teems with its marvelous deeds. Believer, thou hast a mighty engine in thy hand, use it well, use it constantly, use it with faith, and thou shalt surely be a benefactor to thy brethren.”

Description: Short Story It was meant to a fill-up stop and nothing more, but a few eccentric oddities decorating the periphery lured us, I mean me, in further to investigate some folklore, or an old legend synonymous with the dusty town of Moorn. Sometimes the truth doesn't matter... sometimes a place just needs a story.

Description: A lesson in life; a man and a tired boy, dwelling in the darkness. It was a fear from long ago, a story of a past life, and the humble legacy it left behind. Through the grogginess and the dark, they traveled to another life, a different time, and took a quiet ride, through a green hell.
