"Thornton - "the steps he had taken to secure himself, and those whom he chose to employ, from any repetition of the day's outrages. He clearly saw his object. Punishment and suffering, were the natural consequences to those who had taken part in the riot. All that was necessary, in order that property should be protected, and that the will of the proprietor might cut to his end, clean and sharp as a sword." May 14, 2019 01:10PM

I can't remember when I first read The Midwich Cuckoos, but it was certainly within 30 years of the end of World War II. Now, almost 40 years later, the postwartime feel is even more present in this short novel, despite the book itself being publishe ...more
Dewey by Vicki Myron
"As critics point out, it's more biography of the owner & the Iowa town of Spencer than a book about a cat & a library, but I don't mind too much. I do wonder as a cat owner whether his behaviour was always correctly interpreted & wheth..." Read more of this review »
Dewey by Vicki Myron
"Other reviewers have criticized the book as being too much about the author, and not enough focus on Dewey, but I disagree. Dewey is as much a story of the community as the cat himself; in that regard, the authors succeed in using Vicki's own stor..." Read more of this review »

Aldous Huxley
“Man is so intelligent that he feels impelled to invent theories to account for what happens in the world. Unfortunately, he is not quite intelligent enough, in most cases, to find correct explanations. So that when he acts on his theories, he behaves very often like a lunatic.”
Aldous Huxley

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
