Patience

I don’t know if you noticed, but lately seems to be no place for patience in this world in which we live. We all want to quickly finish our studies, get a job with high salary, have a perfect relationship and many friends, but without putting much effort to it. I’m sorry, but Santa Claus doesn’t exist. Things don’t fall from the sky. Miracles don’t happen. Continue reading Patience

Aristotle: Quotes on Ethics, Life, Law and Education

Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice, on the northern periphery of Classical Greece. His father, Nicomachus, died when Aristotle was a child, whereafter Proxenus of Atarneus became his guardian.[3] At eighteen, he joined Plato’s Academy in Athens and remained there until the age of thirty-seven (c. 347 BC).

That elusive thing that is hidden deep inside of us, barely grasping for life. That little thing which humans successfully have learned how to keep under control and which comes out only when they plan to use it for manipulation. Yes.

If this is true, then it looks like “humanity” has lost its meaning. Or maybe we are talking about something completely different?  Continue reading Humanity

Rain

I must admit that yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t had time to breathe. I was so busy that I couldn’t even open my blog and see what’s new or watch at least half an episode from my favorite TV shows (believe me, I always find time for my shows!). And above all, you should have seen the weather here. Oh, it was so dark and rainy I thought it was the end of the world… Continue reading Rain
