Nutzerbericht  - humdog - LibraryThing

this book is difficult to review -- a bunch of excerpts from other books, you have to read it to understand. Norman O Brown was a brilliant grumpy old man who probably singlehandedly changed the way a lot of people think about culture. definitely not standard issue mainstream stuff.

Seite 85 - So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife, loveth himself; for no man ever yet hated his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
Seite 146 - The labour of his body and the work of his hands, we may say, are properly his. Whatsoever, then, he removes out of the state that nature hath provided and left it in, he hath mixed his labour with it, and joined to it something that is his own, and thereby makes it his property.
Seite 7 - Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him, to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, (which is King of peace,) without father, without mother, without descent having neither beginning of days nor end of life ; but made like unto the Son of God, abideth a priest continually.

Seite 245 - The glory of God is to conceal a thing, but the glory of the king is to find it out ;4 as if, according to the innocent play of children, the Divine Majesty took delight to hide His works, to the end to have them found out; and as if kings could not obtain. a greater...
Seite 106 - For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity : to acknowledge every Person by himself to be God and Lord; So are we forbidden by the Catholic Religion : to say, There be three Gods, or three Lords.
Seite 183 - But first the notion that man has a body distinct from his soul is to be expunged; this I shall do by printing in the infernal method by corrosives, which in Hell are salutary and medicinal, melting apparent surfaces away, and displaying the infinite which was hid. If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro
