I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!
How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!
When I have a house of my own,
I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.
–  Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed,
and some few are to be chewed and digested.

Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.

Grit: The Courage to Continue

I imply love this photography work … TY for sharing, Mr. McCurry!!

Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
it is the courage to continue that counts.

Over time, grit is what separates fruitful lives from aimlessness.
– John Ortberg

Charikar, Afghanistan

Grit is not just simple elbow-grease term for rugged persistence.
It is an often invisible display of endurance that lets
you stay in an uncomfortable place, work hard to improve
upon a given interest and do it again and again.

Childhood doesn’t have to be perfect, and children don’t
have to be beautiful. From a bit of grit may grow a pearl,
and if pearl production doesn’t materialize, the outcome will
still be preferable to the shallowness of vanity.

Don’t Know Much About History …


DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT NOTHING … bad grammar noted!!

Filosofa's Word

history bookGranted, they probably don’t focus much on History at Wharton Business School, from which Donald Trump allegedly graduated in 1968, but surely he attended high school?  Surely he has read … oh wait … I forgot … he doesn’t read.  Well, folks, let me tell you a little secret.  Donald Trump is illiterate about the history of the nation he purports to lead.  The evidence has been mounting ever since before he even took office, but yesterday … yesterday he made himself look like the most ignorant person on the North American continent.

In the past, he has made a number of faux pas when speaking of historical events, and I’m really surprised that his staff have not reined him in and admonished him not to speak of history, but perhaps they are no more enlightened than he.  I mean, think of Kellyanne … do you really think she knows…
