    Books that inspire

    Hi Guys,
    I'm kind of new to the Pagan Forum, so Greetings all. There is a tonne of Pagan literature out there and most of it, IMHO, is pretty poor quality. Have any of you read anything decent recently? I'm particularly interested in stuff that is written specifically with Pagans/Wiccan/Druids in mind.

    The last really good book I read was called A Dream of Unknowing by A. Hanson who is a carpathian witch........and it was friggin brilliant. I actually past the book on, I think it's only an ebook, to a friend of mine who took up Wicca because of it. I know it's been circling the UK for about a year mainly in free downloads, but they seem ton have dissapeared for a while and just reappeared on Amazon, but the point is it was great. ​But now I need something equally inspiring....any ideas?

    are you looking for fiction?
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
