  • Elbert Green Hubbard -  American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher.He is known as the founder of the Roycroft artisan community in East Aurora, New York, an influential exponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement. He believed in social, economic, domestic, political, mental and spiritual freedom - and believed in sharing it. This is his collection of wisdom that he found in literature of ages past, from Confucius to John D. Rockefeller. And wisdom never goes out of style.
  • Sagar asks: How are we - as a species living what we think is a civilised life - to survive? How do we continue to live in an overcrowded world whose finite resources are being rapidly exhausted and  whose biological support systems are close to breakdown? There is a wide-spread and fast-growing belief that tinkering with economics and local conservation measures are not enough; that what is needed is a revolution in our consciousness regarding our place in the natural world and our responsibilities towards it. Science and religion are often referred to - but very rarely is there any mention of literature.  Sagar attempts to reassert the essential relationship between imagination,  nature and human survival. By close readings of major works by seventeen of the greatest writers (from Homer to Hughes) that literature has a central contribution to make in our efforts  to discover the laws of nature and human nature, and to live within them.
  • The charming Chinese philosopher Lin Yutang guides the reader who is accustomed to a passionate pace of life to enjoy the small, everyday gifts of life.  He talks lightly of the timeless wisdom of the East and conquers with his irresistible humor. The world is too serious, he thinks,  and that’s why it needs a wise and joyful philosophy. He encourages us to laugh at our own futility and be curious about life like a child.  With one eye closed and the other open, he sees the futility of everything around him and his own endeavors, yet retains enough sense of reality to understand that he has to try to go through life anyway.

  • A compilation of the author's observations for successful living - and who does not want a successful life?

This is simple, commonsense wisdom - the sort that often gets lost in our increasingly complex lives. Recommending qualities such as tolerance and self knowledge as crucial tools for successful living, Morgan enlivens the mix with personal vision and becoming your 'own'positive self-fulfilled prophecy.
  • The Infernal of Infernals...The Fallen One...The Majesty of a Million Hells...the Dark Shadow...the Adversary...Lucifer...The Devil. A colloquy with the Prince of Darkness  - a sequence of tart, ironic and deadly serious dialogues between Archangel Michael and the Mover of the Underworld that undertakes to illuminate some of the central truths of man's existence by an imaginary exchange of letters - epistles barbed with arguments, parries, mutual insults and lofty debate. Lucifer brazenly proclaims  his infinitely durable, diabolical subtle means of corrupting and destroying mankind, while Michael quietly demonstrates the ways in which  God uses Satan's own ponderous, vicious and overambitious weight to topple him flat.
