More > need to know but never will. There are so many questions I dare not ask. The more I search for truth, the more I am convinced I will find a lie. It is too late to begin again. It always is. I must make do with what I have and my memory provides but a poor and patchy record of what went before. Too many times, we remember only what we would like to forget. Lest we forget. The legend on a thousand memorials, each a monument to transient remembrance. The Glorious Dead, gone and forgotten. When we cannot remember, we no longer care. As rats fleeing fire, we hurl ourselves headlong from pasts we would rather forget. We scuttle into a desolate future, each racing the other to an oblivion utter in its completeness.

The Book of the Dead By E. A. Wallis Budge

“Book of the Dead” is the title now commonly given to the great collection of funerary texts which the ancient Egyptian scribes composed for the benefit of the dead. These consist of... More > spells and incantations, hymns and litanies, magical formulae and names, words of power and prayers, and they are found cut or painted on walls of pyramids and tombs, and painted on coffins and sarcophagi and rolls of papyri. The title “Book of the Dead” is somewhat unsatisfactory and misleading, for the texts neither form a connected work nor belong to one period; they are miscellaneous in character, and tell us nothing about the lives and works of the dead with whom they were buried. Moreover, the Egyptians possessed many funerary works that might rightly be called “Books of the Dead,” but none of them bore a name that could be translated by the title “Book of the Dead.”< Less

It is necessary to iterate and reiterate that prayer, as a mere habit, as a performance gone through by routine or in a professional way, is a dead and rotten thing. Such praying has no connection... More > with the praying for which we plead. We are stressing true praying, which engages and sets on fire every high element of the preacher's being -- prayer which is born of vital oneness with Christ and the fullness of the Holy Ghost, which springs from the deep, overflowing fountains of tender compassion, deathless solicitude for man's eternal good; a consuming zeal for the glory of God; a thorough conviction of the preacher's difficult and delicate work and of the imperative need of God's mightiest help. Praying grounded on these solemn and profound convictions is the only true praying. Preaching backed by such praying is the only preaching which sows the seeds of eternal life in human hearts and builds men up for heaven.< Less
