    Re-reading Stephen Kings - Needful Things. Apart from an entertaining read it serves to remind me of how we can be fooled, and fool our selves into believeing we want or need things which are totally unnessesary.

    "Stages On Life's Way" by Soren Kierkegaard.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    I'm about half-way through The Complete Stories of J.G. Ballard. It is a 1200 page tome. He's a very intriguing--and sometimes confusing--writer. It will probably take me another week or so to finish.

    Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King. Four shourt stories. King is certainly a good story teller. two of these were based on actual happens which he has woven into his tales.

    Just began to read "And Quiet Flows The Don" by Michail Sholokhov.

    Re-reading Papillion. Mans triumph over adversity, although you get the feeling the truth has been embellished.

    Whenever I feel a little hard done by I re-read A Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich by Solzhenitsyn. Make me realise how well off I am.
