My least favorite of the series so far. Lewis has given up trying to cover the "Aslan = Jesus" theme with allegory, and just says it right out. The heroes (when not adventuring in Narnia) attend a—gasp!—secular school with no corporal punishment and ...more

Foundation and Earth by Isaac Asimov

Wow—this story is not like the Asimov I'm used to. For prospective readers: You don't need to know a whole lot of the Foundation series to enjoy this novel, but it would really help to have read Robots and Empire first.

My favorite so far. Plenty of weird magic and not too much leo ex machina.

A note: The mice in Narnia could teach even the people of Utah a thing or two about horrible baby names.

Carl Sagan
“The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”
Carl Sagan

George Carlin
“No matter how you care to define it, I do not identify with the local group. Planet, species, race, nation, state, religion, party, union, club, association, neighborhood improvement committee; I have no interest in any of it. I love and treasure individuals as I meet them, I loathe and despise the groups they identify with and belong to.”
George Carlin, Brain Droppings

J.B.S. Haldane
“Now, my own suspicion is that the universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose. I have read and heard many attempts at a systematic account of it, from materialism and theosophy to the Christian system or that of Kant, and I have always felt that they were much too simple. I suspect that there are more things in heaven and earth that are dreamed of, or can be dreamed of, in any philosophy. That is the reason why I have no philosophy myself, and must be my excuse for dreaming.”
J. B. S. Haldane, Possible Worlds

Arthur C. Clarke
“One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion. So now people assume that religion and morality have a necessary connection. But the basis of morality is really very simple and doesn't require religion at all.”
Arthur C. Clarke

Mark Twain
“There are those who scoff at the schoolboy, calling him frivolous and
shallow: Yet it was the schoolboy who said 'Faith is believing what you
know ain't so'.”
Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson
