You're a healer. And you settle for too little.” Gail said I should write a book about
sex and about spirituality. I've written a book about the women in my life -- many
of them -- and I've learned something about myself and my life. I didn't write much
about sex or spirituality. My book turned into a short novel about three empires --
British, American, and Chinese -- the past, present, and future. I was born at the
end of the British Empire, lived through the rise and fall of the American Empire, ...

1. past, present, future “Who made you?” I was asked in catechism class by the
nuns at St. Thomas More School. I knew the answer. “And why did God make you
?” The answer to that question remains the very marrow of my being: “To know,
love, and serve Him in this life, and to be happy with Him in the next.” Knowledge
plus love plus service equals happiness—such was my first arithmetic, and its
simplicity formed my lives. There are two lives, I was taught, and they are divided

I-low she had enjoyed everything! How glad she had felt to be young, and strong,
and handsome—in Hubert's eyes. The present had been delightful then, and the
future had promised deeper happiness. Now the present was anxiety and pain ;
the future a blank ; the past—“ ' The past is always ou-rs,”' thought Diana; “ but
surely one must be growing very old, to find all one's happiness in looking back.

... From weary lives whose days and nights are grey And empty of delight, From
lives that rhyme to sunshine and the spring, From happiness at flood and hope at
ebb, Rose the magnificent and mingled web That floats, your banner, at your
thanksgiving. Throned on the surety of a splendid past, With present glory clothed
as with the sun, Crowned with the future's hopes, you know at last What treasure
from the years your life has won; Behold, your hands hold fast The moon of
Empire, ...

You can actively pursue happiness for yourself so long as you do not affect the
right of others to pursue the same goal. Although these “rights” may be a
laudable goal for sentient human interrelationships, and may even have an
institutional basis and force of law, they are not applicable in the physical world of
grav- ity or motion, nor do they alter anyone's present or future status in the
biological food chain. Alone on that island, you have the “right” to, and in fact do
have, life, liberty, and ...

suitable parts of the historical past which were thoroughly concealed ... The
Soviet mythology offered a vision of future happiness and justice for everyone,
provided the unquestioned support, love and trust for the centralised power
represented by the almighty and (in principle) immortal party and its leader. The
