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.

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

Carl Sagan
“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”
Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan
“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light‐years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. So are our emotions in the presence of great art or music or literature, or acts of exemplary selfless courage such as those of Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr. The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

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

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
