Our Publishing Philosophy



Do what thy manhood bids thee do, from none but self expect applause,

He noblest lives and noblest dies who makes and keeps his self-made laws,

All other life is living death, a world where none but phantoms dwell,

A breath, a wind, a sound, a voice, a tinkling of the camel-bell.
