Lily and the Octopus by Steven  Rowley
"This is one of the best books I've ever read. If you have ever loved a dog, you need to read this. I laughed and cried and sobbed and laughed again. I will also never look at capitalization the same way again. Beautiful beautiful book. "

Howard Thurman
“I do not ignore the theological and metaphysical interpretation of the Christian doctrine of salvation. But the underprivileged everywhere have long since abandoned any hope that this type of salvation deals with the crucial issues by which their days are turned into despair without consolation. The basic fact is that Christianity as it was born in the mind of this Jewish teacher and thinker appears as a technique of survival for the oppressed. That it became, through the intervening years, a religion of the powerful and the dominant, used sometimes as an instrument of oppression, must not tempt us into believing that it was thus in the mind and life of Jesus. “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” Wherever his spirit appears, the oppressed gather fresh courage; for he announced the good news that fear, hypocrisy, and hatred, the three hounds of hell that track the trail of the disinherited, need have no dominion over them.”
Howard Thurman, Jesus and the Disinherited

Virginia Woolf
“What we have to do now, then, Sir, is to lay your request before the daughters of educated men and to ask them to help you to prevent war, not by advising their brothers how they shall protect culture and intellectual liberty, but simply by reading and writing their own tongue in such a way as to protect those rather abstract goddesses themselves.”
Virginia Woolf, Three Guineas

Galway Kinnell
“The secret title of every good poem might be 'Tenderness”
Galway Kinnell

Wendell Berry
“I'd had the idea, once, that if I could get the chance before I died I would read all the good books there were. Now I began to see that I wasn't apt to make it. This disappointed me, for I really wanted to read them all.”
Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow

Reinhold Niebuhr
“I wonder if anyone who needs a snappy song service can really appreciate the meaning of the cross.”
Reinhold Niebuhr, Leaves from the Notebook of a Tamed Cynic
