O fenomenal Sir Roger Scruton, recebendo a condecoração máxima da República Checa, Polônia e Hungria, por sua luta contra o comunismo. Scruton está lutando contra o câncer, e fez um discurso de improviso espetacular. O Brasil também deveria considerar condecorá-lo com o grande colar da Ordem Nacional do Cruzeiro do Sul, maior condecoração brasileira a estrangeiros.

This quote is often misattributed to Aristotle, but is actually by writer Elbert Hubbard, from his book “John North Willys” : “Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing, and you’ll never be criticized.“ This is the way of the world. There will always be those who criticize. Too much or too little, they will never be satisfied. Sometimes, even your friends get in on the action. But they only have your best interests at heart, of course.
There is a way to avoid criticism, of course. Hide from the critics. Do nothing to cause them to notice you. Don’t do anything. Don’t say anything. Don’t be anything that might cause them to go off on you. That just doesn’t sound like much of a life, does it?

Entregarse en un gesto de amor desinteresado y sincero.
Cuando se ama, la comunicación fluye como una corriente tenue y silenciosa.
No importa el origen ni la especie.
Somos almas que se encuentran y coinciden.
You do understand don't you "?" To be the oldest culture of people on earth "well that would mean that every other human, person, nation and culture etc, etc, would have had to came from this people "think about that?" For at what point I ask "you" did this people become the first people of existence on earth, and who were the people that came before them, and before them, and before them etc etc, yes the people inwhich the "so called first people had to come from" to be able to exist as a people, a person, a human being on earth. For you cannot just exist as a human being on earth without every other human existing before you, before you, before you, before you etc etc etc "?" So, please explain our human existence, it's beginning etc "lots of laughs" you know you cannot "truth be told" for people "human beings" as life on earth are simply just a revolving door of intimacy and birth, not a people or a culture, just simply the rebirthing of a male and a female which produce another human being which now exist as a single being, which was created by "2" which were created by "4" which were created by "8" which were created by "16" etc etc. No, there is no first people, only the cycle of life which is only ever the presence of the people of NOW, yes the NOW people which are living breathing within each breath of NOW throughout the cycle of life and death which never ends, but always establishes the presence of the people of NOW!! 💯🌏🥂 WAKE UP SLEEPERS 😴

What you do and who you are.What you do is coming from your ego which you believe is your identity. And who you are is your soul. The more you can relate to who you are the more you’ll be at ease with yourself and life, without having to ask others what do you do which causes competition and separation. Your not your identity or story but a soul having an earthly experience. When you start living from the soul perspective life is beautiful. More understanding love and compassion without judgement, give it a go.Yours Luke ❤️
Hypatia of Alexandria is the earliest female mathematician about whom historians have a reasonable amount of knowledge. She lived from about 370 to 415 AD in Alexandria, Egypt (then part of the Roman empire), and at the time was the world's leading mathematician and astronomer. She lectured on the writings of Plato and Aristotle at the Neoplatonic school, and walked the streets of Alexandria wearing a tribon (a scholar's robe usually worn by men), occasionally giving impromptu public lectures on similar topics. Hypatia also constructed her own astrolabes (devices which can be used to predict the locations of stars and planets), and hydrometers (to determine the density of liquids). She appears to have had little interest in the advances of men: Damascius states that when one of the young men who attended her lectures repeatedly attempted to court her, she saw him off by displaying her menstrual rags. This traumatised the young man so much that he abandoned his pursuit immediately. ⚛
