Learn a Lot: Day’s Books

Cheer up.

Go read a book:

You’ll benefit;

You’ll smile to read

Some grit and wit.

~Day

I’ve rendered the Holy Bible in blank verse.  All the books are on Kindle. I’ve written books of poetry, a children’s story, compiled a law book, and compiled books of quotations. The royalties go directly to my local church, The Bridge Church, in Carson City, Nevada.

 

Besides my books on amazon and kindle, I have art and photographs for sale at fineartamerica.com and zazzle.com/daysrays, and on display on flickr.

Science Fiction Writers

4.
We have trained them to think of the Future as a promised land which favoured heroes attain—not as something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
~C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters (1942). C.S. Lewis, in full Clive Staples Lewis (born 1898, Belfast, Ireland [now in Northern Ireland]—died November 22, 1963, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England), Irish-born scholar, novelist, and author of about 40 books, most of them on Christian apologetics, the most widely known being The Screwtape Letters. He also achieved fame with a trilogy of science-fiction novels and with the Chronicles of Narnia, a series of seven children’s books that have become classics of fantasy literature.

5.
Is it credible that our world should have two futures? I have seen them. Two entirely distinct futures lie before mankind, one dark, one bright; one the defeat of all man’s hopes, the betrayal of all his ideals, the other their hard-won triumph.
~Olaf Stapledon, Darkness and the Light (1942)

6.
We live in reference to past experience and not to future events, however inevitable.
~H. G. Wells, Mind at the End of Its Tether (1946). Herbert George Wells (September 21, 1866 – 1946) was a British writer best known for his science fiction novels such as The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, and The Time Machine; also for Kipps, The History of Mr. Polly and other social satires.
7.
How could you communicate with the future? It was of its nature impossible. Either the future would resemble the present, in which case it would not listen to him: or it would be different from it, and his predicament would be meaningless.
~George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). George Orwell (1903 – 1950) was the pen name of British novelist, essayist, and journalist Eric Arthur Blair.

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

~Isaac Asimov, Isaac Asimov’s Book of Science and Nature Quotations, 1988

Not fact-finding, but attainment to philosophy is the aim of science.

~Martin H. Fischer

The bomb that fell on Hiroshima fell on America too. It fell on no city, no munition plants, no docks. It erased no church, vaporized no public buildings, reduced no man to his atomic elements. But it fell, it fell.

Deception

835.
Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made. The snake asked the woman, “Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?”
“We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden,” the woman answered, “except the tree in the middle of it. God told us not to eat the fruit of that tree or even touch it; if we do, we will die.”
The snake replied, “That’s not true; you will not die. God said that because he knows that when you eat it, you will be like God and know what is good and what is bad.”
–Genesis 3:1-5

836.
I, the Lord, warn you not to deceive yourselves into thinking that the Babylonians will not come back, because they will.
–Jeremiah 37:9

You people hate judges
and honest witnesses.

It was now two days before Passover and the Festival of Thin Bread. The chief priests and the teachers of the Law of Moses were planning how they could sneak around and have Jesus arrested and put to death.
