Today's Motto of the Day

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learned to dance.

~
Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
An Essay on Criticism, Part II (1711)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

You write with ease, to show your breeding,
But easy writing's curst hard reading.

~
Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751–1816)
Clio's Protest (1819)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew, upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

~
Lord George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
Don Juan, Canto III (1819–1824)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

The sentiment of art like the religious sentiment, like scientific curiosity, is born of wonder; the man who wonders at nothing lives in a state of imbecility and stupidity.
~
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831)
Lectures on Aesthetics: Symbolic Art (1826)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

If we have chosen the position in life in which we can most of all work for mankind, no burdens can bow us down, because they are sacrifices for the benefit of all;
...
Experience acclaims as happiest the man who has made the greatest number of people happy.
~
Karl Heinrich Marx (1818-1883)
Letter to His Father (1837)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.
~
Saint Ernesto Che Guevara, Comandante Amigo! (14 June 1928, Rosario, Argentina – 9 October 1967, La Higuera, Bolivia)
Letter in reply to a letter from a certain Señora María Rosario Guevara from Casablanca asking of his origins (1964)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

You are all geniuses, and you are all beautiful. You don't need anyone to tell you who you are. You are what you are. Get out there and get peace, think peace, live peace, and breathe peace, and you'll get it as soon as you like.
~
John Lennon (1940–1980)
Statement to the press in July 1969 after the release of the Plastic Ono Band's single "Give Peace a Chance"

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

When the child was a child, it didn’t know that it was a child, everything was soulful, and all souls were one.
~
Peter Handke (6 December 1942)
"Song of Childhood", Der Himmel über Berlin (1987)

¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤ ~~•~~•~~•~~ ¤

Follow your dreams. Don't let anything stop you!
~
Brenden Foster (October 4, 1997 – November 21, 2008)
Rest in peace Brenden

About me[edit]

What about me? ~ lol ~ Well, it's far too complicated to explain, and I don't like to talk about me because I'm not the best person to ask about this (^__^). I have so many interests, and, "probably", some skills. I am trying to be open-minded and as objective as I can. I am not only willing to consider new and different ideas and opinions, but, I am also ready to change my own ones. I hope to be an all-round good person. Well, this is all for now. Thank you for taking the time to read these "silly things" (^__^). If you would like to know more about me, please check out my userboxes or userboxen as you prefer, and my current favourite subjects.

Easter, 1916 by William Butler Yeats

I have met them at close of day
Coming with vivid faces
From counter or desk among grey
Eighteenth-century houses.
I have passed with a nod of the head
Or polite meaningless words,
Or have lingered awhile and said
Polite meaningless words,
And thought before I had done
Of a mocking tale or a gibe
To please a companion
Around the fire at the club,
Being certain that they and I
But lived where motley is worn:
All changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

That woman's days were spent
In ignorant good will,
Her nights in argument
Until her voice grew shrill.
What voice more sweet than hers
When young and beautiful,
She rode to harriers?
This man had kept a school
And rode our winged horse.
This other his helper and friend
Was coming into his force;
He might have won fame in the end,
So sensitive his nature seemed,
So daring and sweet his thought.
This other man I had dreamed
A drunken, vain-glorious lout.
He had done most bitter wrong
To some who are near my heart,
Yet I number him in the song;
He, too, has resigned his part
In the casual comedy;
He, too, has been changed in his turn,
Transformed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

Hearts with one purpose alone
Through summer and winter, seem
Enchanted to a stone
To trouble the living stream.
The horse that comes from the road,
The rider, the birds that range
From cloud to tumbling cloud,
Minute by minute change.
A shadow of cloud on the stream
Changes minute by minute;
A horse-hoof slides on the brim;
And a horse plashes within it
Where long-legged moor-hens dive
And hens to moor-cocks call.
Minute by minute they live:
The stone's in the midst of all.

Too long a sacrifice
Can make a stone of the heart.
O when may it suffice?
That is heaven's part, our part
To murmur name upon name,
As a mother names her child
When sleep at last has come
On limbs that had run wild.
What is it but nightfall?
No, no, not night but death.
Was it needless death after all?
For England may keep faith
For all that is done and said.
We know their dream; enough
To know they dreamed and are dead.
And what if excess of love
Bewildered them till they died?
I write it out in a verse --
MacDonagh and MacBride
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

Today's featured article

Pen portrait of Florence Fuller, 1897

Florence Fuller (1867–1946) was a South African-born Australian artist. Originally from Port Elizabeth, Fuller migrated as a child to Melbourne with her family. There she trained with her uncle Robert Hawker Dowling and teacher Jane Sutherland and took classes at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School, becoming a professional artist in the late 1880s. In 1892 she left Australia, travelling first to South Africa, where she met and painted for Cecil Rhodes, and then on to Europe. Between 1895 and 1904 her works were exhibited at the Paris Salon and London's Royal Academy. In 1904, Fuller returned to Australia to live in Perth. She became active in the Theosophical Society and painted some of her best-known works. From 1908, Fuller travelled extensively, living in India and England before ultimately settling in Sydney where she was the inaugural teacher of life drawing at a women's art school. Highly regarded in her lifetime as a portrait and landscape painter, by 1914 Fuller was represented in four public galleries—three in Australia and one in South Africa—a record for an Australian female painter at that time. She subsequently suffered mental illness and sank into obscurity. (Full article...)

Menier Chocolate factory

A chocolate factory designed by the architect Jules Saulnier for Menier Chocolate in Noisiel, France. Completed in 1872, it has been cited as the first true skeleton structure, with exterior walls needing only simple infill. The factory was designated by the government of France as an official Monument historique in 1992, and it is on the tentative list to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
