International Dispute Settlement by J G Merrills
"I was really looking forward to this updated version of the textbook, but I am perplexed. The prose is monotonous, the presentation of information - unstructured and full of strange-sounding statements ("/../ the Soviet Union at last withdrew supp..." Read more of this review »

Dainis liked a quote
The Proud Highway by Hunter S. Thompson
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”
Hunter S. Thompson

“Es zinu mirkļus dienas garumā un dienas mirkļa īsumā.”
Imants Ziedonis, Epifānijas

David Mitchell
“As many truths as men. Occasionally, I glimpse a truer Truth, hiding in imperfect simulacrums of itself, but as I approach, it bestirs itself & moves deeper into the thorny swamp of dissent.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Stephen King
“I believe that the combination of pencil and memory creates a kind of practical magic, and magic is dangerous.”
Stephen King, The Green Mile

Stephen King
“On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say? That it was my job? My job?”
Stephen King, The Green Mile

Stephen King
“I'm rightly tired of the pain I hear and feel, boss. I'm tired of bein on the road, lonely as a robin in the rain. Not never havin no buddy to go on with or tell me where we's comin from or goin to or why. I'm tired of people bein ugly to each other. It feels like pieces of glass in my head. I'm tired of all the times I've wanted to help and couldn't. I'm tired of bein in the dark. Mostly it's the pain. There's too much. If I could end it, I would. But I can't.”
Stephen King, The Green Mile
