How Not to Get Shot by D.L. Hughley
"The good news is that D. L. Hughley is a better writer than a dancer. The bad news is . . . well, the bad new is that this a book that needs to be written. I do believe that as a white person, I learned some good lessons from this book. I'm aware..." Read more of this review »

Upton Sinclair
“In wartime it appeared that nobody wanted to see both sides of any question. IV”
Upton Sinclair, World's End

Bill McKibben
“Last year, the USDA said for the first time in 150 years that there were more farms in America instead of fewer. I think that's the single most hopeful statistic I know.”
Bill McKibben

Upton Sinclair
“If you wanted to understand a politician you mustn’t pay too much attention to his speeches, but find out who were his paymasters. A politician couldn’t rise in public life, in France any more than in America, unless he had the backing of big money, and it was in times of crisis like this that he paid his debts. X”
Upton Sinclair, World's End

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Upton Sinclair
“The French delegates now wore a cynical smile as they argued before the commissions; they had their assurance that their armies were going to hold the Rhineland and the Sarre, and that a series of buffer states were to be set up between Germany and Russia, all owing their existence to France, all financed with the savings of the French peasants, and munitioned by Zaharoff, alias Schneider-Creusot. France and Britain were going to divide Persia and Mesopotamia and Syria and make a deal for the oil and the laying of pipelines. Italy was to take the Adriatic, Japan was to take Shantung—all such matters were being settled among sensible men. Lanny”
Upton Sinclair, World's End
