About Adler


  • Religion is a wizard, a sibyl . . .
    She faces the wreck of worlds, and prophesies restoration.
    She faces a sky blood-red with sunset colours that deepen into darkness, and prophesies dawn.
    She faces death, and prophesies life.
  • The family is the school of duties... founded on love.
  • The conception of worth, that each person is an end per se, is not a mere abstraction. Our interest in it is not merely academic. Every outcry against the oppression of some people by other people, or against what is morally hideous is the affirmation of the principle that a human being as such is not to be violated. A human being is not to be handled as a tool but is to respected and revered.
  • Spirituality is the consciousness of infinite interconnectedness.

Why Amazon.com links?

I do not write and maintain this site for a salary; my sole support for this site's expenses is the Amazon.com donation jar (above), and Amazon.com book links and other commercial links I've added to the site.  If you have Javascript enabled in your Internet browser, you'll see targeted suggestions on many of this site's pages. You can use the links to find books at the library or at your local bookstore, but buying books directly through the links on this site will help pay the cost of this site and help keep it online.
