THE THEOLOGY OF THE PHŒNICIANS: FROM SANCHONIATHO.

But when this wind became enamoured of its own first principles (the Chaos), and an intimate union took place, that connexion was called Pothos:1 and it was the beginning of the creation of all things. And it (the Chaos)2 knew not its own production; but from its embrace with the wind was generated Môt; which some call Ilus (Mud), but others the putrefaction of a watery mixture.

Eliot, that was first published in 1909. Dr. Eliot, then President of Harvard University, had stated in speeches that the elements of a liberal education could be obtained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf.

Gerald Massey was born at Gamble Wharf, near Tring, on May 29, 1828. He was the son of a canal boatman, a not very auspicious start in life as his father had very little education, nor was he a man of distinction or literary merit. Like Massey himself, he would spend most of his life impoverished, managing to bring up his large family on a weekly wage of ten shillings, a pittance in those days. Massey also sought livelihood in journalism. Isidore of Seville's Classical Library. Hypertex. READ IT FREE. EARTHMAN’S BURDEN (with Gordon R. Dickson) (1957) [PDF] HOKA!
