It is strange to be known so universally
and yet to be so lonely.

Error in judgement

It is the highest form of self-respect
to admit our errors and mistakes and
make amend for them. To make a mistake is only
an error in judgement, but to adhere to it when
it is discovered shows infirmity of character.

Sunshine, freedom and flower

Just living is not enough.
One must have sunshine, freedom
and a little flower.

Never-ending commitment to life

Life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment,
and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those
who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to life.
As simplistic as this may seems,
it is the common denominator separating those
who live their dreams from those
who live in regret.

in the heart of nature

Nature never did betray the heart
that loved her.

Autumn Colours

There is a harmony in the autumn,
a lustre in its sky,
which through summer is not heard or seen,
as if it could not be,
as if it had not been!

I know just one freedom,
and that is the freedom of the mind.

Travel for travel's sake

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere,
but to go.
Travel for travel's sake.
The great affair is to move.

Something of value

I have always believed, and I still believe, that
whatever good or bad fortune may come our way
we can always give it meaning and transform it
into something of value.
Hermann Hesse

Expectations and reality

Don't lower your expectations to meet your
Raise your level of performance to meet your
Expect the best of yourself,
and then do what is necessary
to make it a reality.

Sound of the sea

The sea awoke at midnight from its sleep,
I heard the first wave of the rising tide,
A voice out of the silence of the deep,
A sound mysteriously multiplied,
The rushing of the sea-tides of the soul.

Innocence dwells with wisdom,
but never with ignorance.

Created in a moment

It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship
and courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and
unless that affinity is created in a moment,
it will not be created in years or even generations.

Natural life without medication

The latest study shows that 85% of new drugs do not offer
any new benefits while having the potential to cause
serious harm due to toxicity. Sometimes drug companies
hide information about serious side effects of new drugs
and usually overstate the drugs benefits. Critical examination
of the effectiveness of the prescription drugs reveals that
most prescription drugs have various side effects and even
create life-long dependency upon the drug. Drug companies
are the most profitable industry. They spend lots of money
on advertising and marketing, twice the amount that they
spend on the medical research; also they have major
influence on the publication of medical studies.
Pursing a natural and healthy life style and avoiding
medication that usually are used unnecessarily and
inappropriately can change our lives for better.
Get closer to the nature and keep distance from
all the artificial and chemicals including medication.

Mother, mother,...
your unconditional love,
your high self-esteem,
your lofty manners and thoughts,
your beautiful heart and look,
your kind and sweet smile,
your charm and grace,
your respect for all the religions and races,
...all made you so special that
you could take the place of all others,
but no one could take your place.

Scent of flowers

The pleasant experience of smelling scented flowers
sometimes is unique. Scientists have found that
inhaling certain fragrances alter gene activity and
blood chemistry in a way that can reduce the
stress levels and boost your immune health.
So do not forget, whenever you are in a garden,
just stop and smell the flowers.

When it comes to the future,
there are three kinds of people:
those who let it happen,
those who make it happen,
and those who wonder what happened.

Life is a beauty, admire it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

Nature photographers capture interesting animals in action.
They usually shot in the wild life and face various adventures,
sometimes very dangerous ones. They do it because it is
their passion and they enjoy it!

Only one man for a woman and only one woman for a man.
As Cicero said, nothing is more noble than fidelity. Faithfulness
and truth are the most sacred excellence and endowment of
the human mind.

As Giacomo Leopardi said children find everything in nothing;
but the adults find nothing in everything! Children under the
age of 4 are so cute and innocent that their look and smile
could transform our day from an ordinary one to a hopeful
and amazing day. For example, just look at the above image,
one should have heart of stone if he or she cannot smile at it.
If we could learn from children, surely we would live much
better life.

Clear Thinking

So many people would rather die than think,
in fact, they do so.

Honey bees and mobile phones

Honey is loved by everyone and it plays an important role in
different cultures. Unfortunately there has been significant
reduction in the number of honey makers: honey bees.
The campaigners have blamed agricultural pesticides,
climate change and genetically modified corps for the
disappearance of honey bees and the collapse of their
hives. Now scientists have found that the growing
use of mobile telephones is responsible for this;
the radiation from mobiles is interfering with the
bee's navigation senses. This is a catastrophe!
No one can deny the hazards of the radiation from
mobiles on human and the environment and
any responsible person should react and to avoid
the excessive use of mobile phones; at least one
can switch it off some time during the day and night.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday
to all the people who was born on 1 June.
Enjoy your day and remember the real age is different
from the calender age and you are only as old as you
feel and look.

There are so many descriptions of "Hope" by various writers
and philosophers that are interesting and deep; the following
description by Samuel Smiles is wonderful and unique; he
resembled hope to the sun and said "Hope is like the sun,
which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow
of our burden behind us."

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could
give another person, he believed in me.

When Balzac was asked to define the art; he replied:
"Art is Nature concentrated". Rembrandt always emphasized
that we should choose only one master and that is Nature.
The closer we get to the Nature, the sharper our senses
will be. We should nurture our love for Nature. The purifying
intelligence and beauty of Nature helps us in our journey to
the perfection. Nature restores its voices in our thought and
in our soul. Modern life cannot be an excuse for the disconnection.
Even the presence of one flower in our room can reconnect us
to the Nature.

Optimists and Pessimists

Some people are optimists and some are pessimists,
and interestingly there are people who are optimists
in the morning and pessimists at night. As Levinson
said a pessimist sees only the dark sides of the clouds,
and mops; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs;
and an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all- he is
walking on them!

Symphony No.5 (Beethoven)

The composition of the Fifth Symphony had occupied
Beethoven's mind for many years and it was finally
finished in 1808. This symphony is so profound, colourful
and enlightening that you cannot be the same person after
listening to it. Fifth Symphony is the most admired and
the most human symphony in its qualities; it pictures
the struggle of the individual with Fate, the alternations
of hope and despair and the final triumph. This symphony
has made my life more colourful.

Natural look

Many products that are used in make-up that usually changes
the natural look into the artificial look, contain harmful
ingredients which are made up of very small molecules
that may penetrate skin, enter the blood stream, and
build up in the liver, kidneys, heart, lungs and tissues.
The glossy images that we are fed by the media
usually hides the truth about the dangerous
chemicals that are used in these products.

Nothing can replace the glowing and beautiful look that
comes from the healthy life style, eating natural foods,
regular exercises, and positive thinking.

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings;
it takes its origins from emotion recollected in tranquility.

A sad end for the wild in the cage

One of the rarest creatures on the earth:
snow leopards that there are less than 1000
of them on the planet has attracted the attention of
the greedy hunters to trap and sell them for hundred
thousands dollars. In the Wakhan Mountains of
Afghanistan, several weeks ago, one of them was
trapped and put into the cage until to be sold.
But after three days in the cage, this rare and
wild animal who was used to free and wild life
in the mountains, could no longer tolerate the
captivity and died! The above picture was taken
one day before the death of the wild creature in
the cage. One can see the pain by looking
at the animal's eye in the above image; the
pain of a free and wild creature in the cage.

Little Lamb who made thee

Dost thou know who made thee

Gave thee life and bid thee feed.



Tiger, Tiger, burning bright,

In the forest of the night:

What immortal hand or eye,

Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

A funny moment

This joke put a smile on my face and I share it with you:

A man was sent to Hell for his sins. As he was being taken
to his place, he passed a room where he saw a lawyer with
a woman. The man said: "What a ripoff; I have to roast
for all eternity, but that lawyer gets to spend it with
a beautiful woman." Jabbing the man with his pitchfork,
the escorting demon snarled: " Who are you to question
that woman's punishment?"

21st Century Genius

Dr Grigory Yakovlevich Perelman who had solved a 100 year
old mathematical problem did not accept $ 1 million prize.


There are lots of different reactions to this case; but we should
look the matter from his point of view in order to be able to
understand the reason. In 1999, the Clay Mathematics Institute
announced a $1 million prize for anyone who can solve this
problem that has been unsolved since 1904 in mathematics.

In 2002, Dr Perelman announced his solution; in 2003 he
went to the US and gave a series of talks on his solution.
It stirred much jealousy among mathematicians who wished
for a long time to find a solution for this problem;
especially Shing-Tung Yau, a Chinese mathematician
who lives in the US.
Tung Yau did whatever he could to postpone the
verification of the solution. Finally, in 2006,
Dr Perelman's solution was recognised and in
March 2010 he was awarded $ 1 million!

It was too late, Dr Perelman withdrew from mathematics
and now lives in Saint Petersbourg where he was born
with his mother. He has said that he is not in search of
money or fame and he does not like to be displayed
like an animal in the zoo. And in his rare interview
with The New Yorker he said:

"It is not people who break ethical standards who are
regarded as aliens, it is people like me who are isolated.
...even those mathematicians who are more or less honest
are conformists and tolerate those who are dishonest..I cannot
stay a pet and say nothing. That is why I had to quit."

Dr Perelman, a true genius with admirable principles,
behind the closed door of his apartment answered the
media query over the reason of his refusal to accept the
prize: "I have all I want".

I was walking in the park and thinking about the wonder
of nature and I thought that we cannot find anything more
beautiful than a tranquilizing sunny spring day.

Work of art

Harsh reality about some works of art: the artist died in
misery while suffering from economic hardship...several
years later in 1960 his painting was sold for $55,000...and
then the same painting was resold in 2009 and this time for
the amount of $142 million. There are many cases like this.
Of course these prices are manipulated prices rather than
real prices. But does it make any change to what happened
to the artist?
