Dark Nights

I've been reading this book by Thomas Moore called Dark Nights Of The Soul. I've found it to be ridiculous, preposterous and beautiful all at the same time. I don't suggest you go out and read it. Its not an entertaining read. Its a I-need-to-find-peace-in-the-darkness-of-my-life book. So if that's what you're looking for maybe you should pick it up.

Here are a few quotes from that text:

"Again, contemporary America values opinion over reflection. It always wants to know who is right, and not who has the most interesting and suggestive ideas."

"And so we are left with a great battle, not between good and evil, but between really living and just pretending."

~Thomas Moore
