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.

Indeed, it would not be an exaggeration to describe the history of the computer industry for the past decade as a massive effort to keep up with Apple.
~Byte, December 1994

Interviewer: Is studying computer science the best way to prepare to be a programmer?
Bill Gates: No. the best way to prepare is to write programs, and to study great programs that other people have written. In my case, I went to the garbage cans at the Computer Science Center and I fished out listings of their operating system. You got to be willing to read other people’s code, then write your own, then have other people review your code. You’ve got to want to be in this incredible feedback loop where you get the world-class people to tell you what you’re doing wrong.
~Bill Gates cited in: “Programmers at Work: Interviews with 19 Programmers Who Shaped the Computer Industry,” Tempus, by Susan Lammers (Editor)

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.

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.

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.

Holy Bible

668.
Brothers, we
Don’t want you to be ignorant about

The ones who fall asleep, or to lament
Like other men, who have no hope, for we
Believe that Jesus died and rose again

And therefore we believe that God will bring
With Jesus those who fell asleep in him.
~First Thessalonians 4:13−14

669.
Because the Lord himself will come down from
Heaven, with loud command, the archangel’s
Voice, and God’s trumpet call, and then the dead

In Christ will be the first to rise. Then we
Who are alive still and are left will be
Caught up together with them in the clouds

To meet the Lord in air, and so we will
Be with the Lord forever. So you too
Can comfort one another with this news.
~First Thessalonians 4:16−18

670.
I’ll give my two witnesses
Power to prophesy twelve hundred sixty
Days, clothed in sackcloth; these two witnesses

Are the two olive trees and the two lampstands
That stand before the Lord who rules the earth.
If someone tries to harm them, fire bursts from

Their mouths and it devours their enemies.
~Revelation 11:3−5

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

~Isaiah 7:14

 

547.

Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

~Matthew 24:29-31

 

548.

No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

~Matthew 24:36-37

(Speaking of late nineteenth-century self-regard within the British empire:)
Well, here we are on top of the world, and we have arrived at this peak to stay there forever. There is, of course, a thing called history, but history is something unpleasant that happens to other people. We are comfortably outside all of that I am sure.
~Arnold J. Toynbee

That the automobile has practically reached the limit of its development is suggested by the fact that during the past year no improvements of a radical nature have been introduced.
