Quotes of Anne Lamott (novelist & non-fiction writer)
"As I've said a hundred times, if people wanted me to write more warmly about them,
they should have behaved better."
“You can safely assume you've created God in your own image
when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
14 Writing Tips from Anne Lamott
Ursula K. Le Guin, Acclaimed for Her Fantasy Fiction, Is Dead at 88
January 23, 2018 by Gerald Jonas - The New York Times
In addition to more than 20 novels, she was the author of a dozen books of poetry, more than 100 short stories
(collected in multiple volumes), seven collections of essays, 13 books for children and five volumes of translation,
including the Tao Te Ching of Lao Tzu and selected poems by the Chilean Nobel Prize winner Gabriela Mistral.
She also wrote a guide for writers.
The writer’s “pleasant duty,” she said, is to ply the reader’s imagination with “the best and purest nourishment that it can absorb.”

In Search of a Better World: Karl Popper on Truth vs. Certainty and the Dangers of Relativism
“Knowledge consists in the search for truth… It is not the search for certainty.”
“I dream of a world where the truth is what shapes people’s politics,
rather than politics shaping what people think is true.”

List of Greek Gods & Godesses
The following list of Greek Gods and Goddesses is a complete
list of the major and minor deities of Greek mythology.
The following pages I first put together over fifteen years ago. I've updated them periodically, but the exponential growth of the Internet/Web has greatly outpaced my efforts. So, what follows, although offering many helpful and useful resources, is, by and large, of historical significance only.
Important features like RFCs (Requests For Comments) were an outgrowth of 1970's ARPANET and later Gopher Cutlure--being exclusively text files, originally--and form the basis of the Internet's technical documentation. Supplying early cohesion, they were a major source of information about the inner workings of the Internet and its attempt to self-regulate and keep everyone in the loop. Nowadays, I don't think many people are even remotely aware of their existence. And in the mid-90's, 3rd-party software developers were offering HTML Tool Kits and Design resources for fledgling web-page creators, like myself, way before people like Bill Gates and Al Gore discovered the Internet, and before corporations had a presence on the Web.
It seems really long ago now. It was a pretty wild time when everyone was on the same footing, the original social network, a frontier community.
