Quotes

Thought for Today: "When I do good I feel good, when I do bad I feel bad, and that's my religion." -- Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
The roster of his books is perhaps unparalleled by another other contemporary writer for its breadth. It includes "Under the Mountain Wall: A Chronicle of Two Seasons in Stone Age New Guinea" from 1962, "The Tree Where Man Was Born" from 1972, which was nominated for a National Book Award, and "Far Tortuga" from 1975
"In this model, attempting to remember one's dreams should perhaps not be encouraged, because such remembering may help to retain patterns of thought which are better forgotten. These are the very patterns the organism was attempting to damp down." (p. 114)
...Tony Rossi, The Christophers Director of Communications, says, "In a culture where hope can be in shortshort supply, we joyfully celebrate the creative artists behind these winning works."
