Yet, despite his genius, he referred to himself as "senza lettere" (the illiterate, the man without letters). For good reason: until late in life, he was unable to read, or write, Latin, the language used by virtually all other Renaissance...

Love Stories are being shared: From Our Hearts Love is a short word, but it contains all: it means the body, the soul, the life, the entire being. We feel it as we feel the warmth of the blood, we breathe it as we breathe the air, we carry it in ourselves as we carry our thoughts. Nothing more exists for us. It is not a word; it is an inexpressible state indicated by four letters.... ~ Guy de Maupassant **********************

Hi Inda. Hi Margherita. It's good information. Additionally since we are human and will doubtless be angry and impatient from time to time, it's helpful to know how to deal not just with anger but with any of the hindrances. In any event it helps to go beyond any problem to a solution. Seeing a problem is half of it. The Mahayana Buddhists speak of Pride Anger Lust Jealousy and Stupidity. I always felt that there is an overlap between all of those conditions. They compare to the seven deadly...

Thank you Inda. I enjoyed the coffee. I also enjoyed VanGogh's starlight. Here is something from Antoine de Saint-Exupery on Starlight. All men have stars...but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travellers, the stars are guides. For others, they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems... but all these stars are silent. You ~you alone~ will have the stars as no one else has them.

Mesopotamia and Its Art More than 4,000 years ago the valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers began to teem with life--first the Sumerian, then the Babylonian, Assyrian, Chaldean, and Persian empires.

The Baroque in Sculpture Michelangelo had shown the way to express robust power with technical excellence. In his day these attributes of art were urgently desired by both church and state--the church to bolster its prestige in the face of Protestant successes, and the state to glorify its rising power. This trend carried over into the 17th century, when the zeal that built St. Peter's in Rome expressed itself in a renewed vigor wherever Roman Catholicism prevailed. The leader of the baroque...

Sculpture in the United States The first American sculptor of significance was the Philadelphian William Rush (1756-1833), who worked in wood. He left a fine full-size carving of George Washington as well as a vigorous self-portrait. His younger contemporaries, however, were studiously copying European examples of the neoclassical school in Italy. Horatio Greenough (1805-52) made an imposing figure of Washington in which he looks more like a half-dressed Roman emperor than the father of his...

Thank you for the fabulous images Teo. Now we come to a Roman aqueduct. One of the greatest surviving monuments of Roman engineering, this aqueduct stretches from the walls of the old town to the edges of Sierra de Guadarrama. It is about 2950 feet long although the section where the arches are divided in two levels is about 900 feet. It is made of rough-hewn massive granite blocks, joined without mortar or clamps.

Arc de Triomphe Paris, France. In the middle of the Place Charles de Gaulle, at the border of the 8th, 16th and 17th arrondissement stands the greatest arch in history: the Arc de Triomphe (arch of triumph). It was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 to commemorate his victories, but he was ousted before the arch was completed. In fact, it wasn't completed until 1836 during the reign of Louis-Philippe.
