During his lifetime Thomas Carlyle was regarded as a plain-speaking, if somewhat irascible, prophet; a larger-than-life figure whose fame and influence rivalled even that of Lord Byron’s. But... More > if Carlyle’s reputation as a prophet and as an historian steadily declined in the years that followed his death, his bon mots remain as fresh, entertaining, and as scathing as ever. His sharp tongue (which was matched only by that of his wife’s), was unleashed on anyone, friend or foe, who aroused his displeasure, and upset as many of his more mealy-mouthed Victorian contemporaries as his published work made him admirers. The Sayings of Thomas Carlyle sees the ‘Sage of Chelsea’ in full flight, and his pungent reflections on politics, life, and those around him, show that while political and economic theories come and go, simple spleen can stand the test of time. Selected and with an introduction by Brendan King< Less
Autobiography Of Alexander Carlyle By Alexander Carlyle

ALEXANDER CARLYLE Autobiography Alexander Carlyle, minister of the Church of Scotland and author of the celebrated "Autobiography," was born at Cummmertrees Manse, Dumfriesshire, on January... More > 26, 1722, and died at Inveresk on August 25, 1805. His commanding appearance won for him the sobriquet of "Jupiter Carlyle," and Sir Walter Scott spoke of him as "the grandest demi-god I ever saw." He was greatly respected in Scotland as a wise and tolerant man, where too many were narrow, bitter, and inquisitorial. With regard to freedom in religious thought he was in advance of his time, and brought the clerical profession into greater respect by showing himself a cultured man of the world as well as a leader of his Church. Carlyle, however, would hardly be remembered now but for the glimpses which his book gives of contemporary persons and manners. The work was first edited in 1860 by John Hill Burton.< Less

More > The sad thing is this - we can all be rich and there is a way out of the morass of racist mud-slinging. Of all the things proven in more than a decade since I wrote this book, the two most important advancements are very recent. One is from archaeology in 2014 which brought us over 500,000 year old art in Indonesia. The other is a growing proofing of gravitational wave theory which scientists say makes metaphysics our true reality. Readers of my work know I had proof of these things in hard science a long time ago.< Less
