    I've been reading "The War Of The Dwarves" by Markus Heitz. It is translated from German by Sally-Ann Spencer, and is a sequel to his first book, "The Dwarves".

    "Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov.
    *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."

    The Three Loves of Persimmon, Cassandra Golds (been nominated for an award in the NSW Premier's Literary Awards 2011)

    Seriously one of the best books I've read in the last 10 years (along with Like Water for Elephants)
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    @teddy, He is one of my favorite actors, and he seems like a decent guy in real life. Please let me know should you discover otherwise after reading his biography.

    Will do Steve, although as it is an auto biog I doubt it. have you seen HARRY BROWN, which I believe is his last film. Some really beautifull acting in it not to mention some of the direction and photography. Worth a watch

    @Teddy, No, I haven't but as long as I can order it from Netflix, I'll have a go at it. Thanks. Enjoy your book! I still rember him with much fondness in the movie The Man Who Would Be King {based on a Rudyard Kipling story} in which he played poor Peachie Carnahan. Along with Sean Connery, Michael Caine has always been one of my favorite actors.

    If I remember correctly his first film was Zulu, another great one. I believe he is now Sir Michael.
