    like Jere said before, ive learned that life is all about balance. That if you focus on the good or the bad in life for too long youll ultimatly destroy yourself. If you can strive to attain a balance in all you do, you will be more satisfied with life.

    Moorcock, and views presented in his books, have really helped me through some rough times in my life.

    His books taught me to keep on reading. I picked up Weird of the White Wolf when I was in 2nd grade and have never stopped (I'm 36 now).

    If you look at this post, Thanks M.M.

    I've learned many things, mostly about my self. Predominantly, though, I learned to think with my own mind instead of the mind instructors and a conservative community tried to press on me. I've learned that ideas of a clear cut "Good" and "Evil" are ambiguous at best. I no longer assume the first side I hear is acurate, instead I keep my mind open until I know all sides as best I can.

    I guess you can say that Moorcock taught me to be ME, instead of everyone else.

    Thanks!

    Iآ´ve learned that you must always seek the balance; Chaos and Order, not just Good and Evil. I donآ´t know if I can achieve that balance, the questآ´s the only thing that matters meanwhile. :arrow:

    I've learned to beware messiahs, that individual identity is a tenuous thing beset on all sides by adversaries mortal and cosmic, knowing and unknowing, and I've learned that friends can be found in unexpected places.

    :lol: Very true. Or rather; Don't trust large black swords.

    I've learned that, with a character like Jerry Cornelius, its really easy to annoy those Hobbitophiles who think they own fantasy.

    I think that the books were the first that I read where I actually had to look up the meanings of some of the words. Insouciant is such a great word, as is usurper. A small thing, I know. :roll:

    They taught me to be rational instead of just following predeterminated rules. That Law and Chaos is the same (the two sides of a coin), and that peace (harmony) sometimes can be achieved if you work for it.

    The main thing I learned from the books (I have read most fictional books of Michael Moorcock) is not to believe everything you see and judge quickly upon first impression.

    The second is rather more substancial.The books made me want to learn to draw .So I went and learned it. :D
