.: Conceptual minds :.

Kuala Lumpur City Library.

“Let others see their recreation
In beautiful songstresses and wine
What we offer are literary gatherings and books
As recreations of the minds”

~ Ibn Durayd (d.321/933)

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.”

~ Lao Tzu

There's something in every atheist, itching to believe, and something in every believer, itching to doubt.

~ Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
