Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
I want you to know
You know how this is:
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

Daughter of Heav'n, relentless pow'r,
Thou tamer of the human breast,
Whose iron scourge, and tort'ring hour,
The bad affright, afflict the best!
Bound in thy adamantine chain,
The proud are taught to taste of pain,
And purple tyrants vainly groan
With pangs unfelt before, unpitied and alone.
When first thy sire to send on earth
Virtue, his darling child, design'd,
To thee he gave the heavn'ly birth,
And bade to form her infant mind.
Stern rugged nurse! thy rigid lore
With patience many a year she bore.
What sorrow was, thou bad'st her know;
And from her she learn'd to melt at others' wo.
Scar'd at thy frown terrific, fly
Self-pleasing folly's idle brood,
Wild laughter, noise, and thoughtless joy,
And leave us leisure to be good.
Light they disperse; and with them go
The summer-friend, the flatt'ring foe.
By vain prosperity receiv'd,
To her they vow their truth, and are again believ'd.
Wisdom, in sable garb array'd,
Immers'd in rapt'rous thought profound,
And melancholy, silent maid,
Right under their noses, the green
Of the field is paling away
Because of something fallen from the sky.
They see this, and put down
Their long heads deeper in grass
That only just escapes reflecting them
As the dream of a millpond would.
The color green flees over the grass
I quit making random comments
I want to run and lie on the cements
The road leads all along to the hill
So let me from my troubles chill
That I can try to smile a bit
Because all I want is to quit
Making good out of the worst
unutkan oldum biteviye
neydi dün günlerden salı mı
jilet ve kalem de yok ortalıkta
ya Maarif İdadi'ye yazdığım nağme
In the dark and gloomy sphere,
Gradually it crossed
The mysterious atmosphere
Live plants in an aquarium fulfills the desire of having a natural and stable environment for fish and amusement and delight for the pet owners.
These plants act as natural filters in the fish tanks. In order to grow, plants in the aquarium require nitrogen and phosphates. These are abundantly available for plants in any water tank with fish. A low nitrate environment is helpful for healthy fish therefore, it's a win-win situation for healthy fish and plants.
Algae is one of the major concerns for some fish owners. Whereas this is controlled by either cleaning water, or algae regularly. Adequate plantations in the aquarium may reduce the chance of having algae substantially.
Plants in an aquarium make sure that an ecosystem is established in the fish tanks. Plants take care of filtration and fish provide nitrogen and phosphate for the plants. Once it is established then you may have to look after the food and observe changes in water and control light.
In Abe Lincoln in Illinois played by actor Raymond Massey. I remember a line from it that went 'Those who have failed at everything else in life enter politics'. I guess I must have failed life already in the fourth grade when I said I wanted to be The President of the United States. There are many people who would be great in office if they did not subscribe to that mentality.
We the public, often leave politics to the wrong people, people who are naturally unfit for the job. Some of it is because politics itself can get ugly and is full of all the things you would think would have stayed behind in the schoolyard.
This may be the reason that a good portion of voters feel unheard and disillusioned often because they or their friend have refused to consider running for public office. They rather someone else do it, instead of themselves, because it is less work being a cheerleader on the sidelines rooting for their hero in shining armor to give them victory.
What is the meaning of Grassroot in our twenty first century vocabulary? It means nothing anymore, because our own view of politics is quite naturally of repulsion not honor.
أغبىٰ النَّاس مَا للنَّاسِ قَصَدهُم
خَابَ قَاصِدهُم والأقربُونَ أغرابُ
اِرْتَوِي مِنْ ذَاكِرَتِي سَيِّدَتِي
فَأنَا مَازِلْتُ أَذْكُرُ أَشْيَائِي
كُلّ حَدَثٍ حَدَثَ بَيْنَنَا
كَأَنِّي فِي الغَابَاتِ تَائِهَا
وأنْتِ فِي المَدائِنِ تَرَفُّهَا
أَحْبِبْ مَنْ شِئْتَ فَإِنَّهُ مُعَذِّبُكَ
وَصَوْتُ حُضُوُره يُثْرِيكَ عَنْ غَيْرِهِ
إِنِّي أَحْبَبْتُ مَنْ لَا سَبِيْلَ يَجْمَعُنَا
When morality goes down, qualifications, ability, skills and all lose significance;
Good character is most important rather than personality development alone;
Good personality with knowledge and skill are well developed has special value;
Naturally good character with personality development makes one great in any field!
رَتِّبْ هُدُوُمَكَ ألآنَ
وَاعْرِفْ مَوَاقِيْتَ الجَدْوَلْ
حَبِيْبَتُكَ فَاَقَتْ مَنَ النَّوْمِ
سَلْ مَا الشَّوْقُ أُجِيْبُ نَارٌ
مِنْ غَيْرِ وقودٍ يُشْعِلهَا البُعَادُ
سَلْ مَا الشَّوْقُ يَفْعَلُ بِصَاحِبِهِ
إِنَّا مِنْ قُرَىٰ لَا يَذْكُرُ ذَاكِرُهُم
مَنْ حَبُّوا وَمَنْ فِيهِمْ يُبْتَكَرُ
فَمَا لِيَ كُلَّمَا كَتَبْتُ الحَرْفَ
Your presence is near
I wish you were here
is the true
of one's soul.
1. Take a shower you don't want to smell.
2. Pick out an outfit that will blend in with the latest trends and won't make you a laughing stock of the school more than you already are
3. Put on some makeup so you can't even recognize yourself and your face tingles with an unbelievable issue. You can't satisfy otherwise you'll have ruined the hours of meticulous painting you apply to your face.
I will never forget you my dearest soulmate..
these old meomries will never fade...
you've always laid me in your shade...
whenever I trembled or felt afraid....
Poetry is sexy
Its lyrics aim to please
My pan head
Mine you are
And Yours I am
I was like a withered flower in a barren desert,
till I breathed your smile that brought life to my heart.
I was like a homeless child looking for a shelter.
He was before his beloved,
Kneeling on his thighs……..
His shoulders were down,
With his soulful cries…….
Il pleuvait sans cesse sur Brest ce jour-là
Et tu marchais souriante
Épanouie ravie ruisselante
you put this pen
in my hand and you
take the pen from you put this pen
On this dry prepared path walk heavy feet.
This is not "dinner music." This is a power structure.
"Come, pretty birds, present your lays,
And learn to chaunt a goddess praise;
Ye wood-nymphs, let your voices be
Employ'd to serve her deity:
If you had the choice of two women to wed,
(Though of course the idea is quite absurd)
And the first from her heels to her dainty head
Was charming in every sense of the word:
A little while, a little while,
The weary task is put away,
And I can sing and I can smile,
Alike, while I have holiday.
Between us now and here -
Two thrown together
Who are not wont to wear
Life's flushest feather -
"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
