I have a review of Leslie Marmon Silko’s novel Almanac of the Dead published at Gods and Radicals.
Book Review: Almanac of the Dead
Guan Sheng Di said:
"Man lives in the world. If he values loyalty, filial piety, honesty, and righteousness above all else, he will not fail in life.
However, if he doesn’t value loyalty, filial piety, honesty, and righteousness, although his body is alive, his heart is already dead. This is called stealing life.
Man’s heart knows the gods and the gods know man’s heart."
