Excerpt

A young face and an old heart are sorry companions, but an old face and a young heart are sorrier still.

* * * * *

What people will 'say' is the bugbear of small minds.

* * * * *

Love would cease to exist were it not for the gift of idealizing.

* * * * *

A fly is but a small thing, yet it can disturb the greatest philosopher.

* * * * *

Is a new soul created at every birth, or are we merely corpses warmed over?

* * * * *

Kind words and a sympathetic handclasp have done more to reclaim lost souls than all the tracts ever published.

* * * * *

A minute is a short duration of time, yet in that interval one may experience the whole gamut of human emotions.

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
