apohrisms of oscar wilde

The only thing that men and women have in common, is that they both prefer the company of men.

A man can't be too careful in the choice of his enemies.

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.

famous mer-man

TRITON,a son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, who dwelt with his father and mother in a golden palace on the bottom of the sea at Aegae. He was a fish-tailed sea god, and the king of the seas. He stilled the waves with the blow of a conch-shell trumpet.

Female Gladiators

The Romans constantly looked for novelties to display in their gladiatorial games. Female Gladiators provided an unusual distraction from the male gladiators. There is various evidence that prove that women fought in the arenas as Female Gladiators. Most gladiators were recruited from prisoners of war and slaves but there is startling evidence via Roman documentation that wealthy Roman women also fought in the arena as female gladiators.

The Rose of Tralee

The pale moon was rising above the green mountains,
The sun was declining beneath the blue sea,
When I strayed with my love by the pure crystal fountain,
That stands in the beautiful Vale of Tralee.

She was lovely and fair as the rose of the summer,
Yet 'twas not her beauty alone that won me.
Oh no, 'twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning
That made me love Mary, the Rose of Tralee.

By William Pembroke Mulchinock

"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."

“Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose.”
~~Turkish Proverb

On the death of Bin Laden

”Some time ago, Theudas appeared, claiming to be someone important,
and about four hundred men joined him, but he was killed,
and all those who were loyal to him
were disbanded and came to nothing.
For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin,
it will destroy itself.”

Acts 5:34-42

“The splendor of the rose and the whitness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
