A man does what he can;
a woman does what a man cannot.
Isabel Allende

The woman was not created inferior to the man, nor was the man created to be greater than the woman. They were both created to have their own place in the universe and the balance of it has been shaken ever since the woman decided she was a man (with no balls).

Basically, women are to blame for everything going upside down in this world. Joke. Though many a true word is spoken in jest. The last 100 years have all been about women's rights and equality. Now, I am not a feminist. I do, however, fully support women's rights and legal and political equality. In fact, my dissertation in my second University was about women's rights and the history of feminism. As an epigraph to it I used a quote from a book by Valentine Pikul "Fovarit: His Tavrida", that is alleged to Catherine II: "Equaling the woman to a position of the man means humiliating and offending her."

By nature women are spiritually much richer and higher than men. It is believed women hold some colossal energy that is able, if used wisely, to do the unbelievable. Her sacred duty is to nourish her man's vitality - for her own advantage. Instead...

People used to be intelligent and well educated back in 19th century, way more than today - the times of unlimited possibilities and global progress. Paradox but true.

It was my exact thought when I started reading Sherlock Holmes: The complete collection the other day, and stumbled upon a paragraph that said: "...Deceit, according to him, was an impossibilty in the case of one trained to observation and analysis. His conclusions were as infallible as so many propositions of Euclid..." Last time I read the stories about Sherlock Holmes was at the age of 13 or 14, naturally the level of comprehension at my current 28 is completely different. First question that came on my mind was "Hm.. How many people in 21 century know who was Euclid?" And the more I read, the more similar questions kept occuring.

Young students mostly don't like to read classical literature, because they falsely assume it is boring. And if you try googling "classical li..." the option "classical literature" comes up third in the row, right up after "classical liberalism" and "classical languages", which in my opinion is very sad. Not that liberalism and languages in their classical appearance are not interesting - very interesting indeed - yet apparently it's what excites people of 21 century way more than classical literature. Or literature at all for that matter.

 Our greatest glory is not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.
Oliver Goldsmith

Being successful, or at least making an impression of successful person, is basically a modern social scourge. In a world where everyone wants to shine there are two types of people - those who obtain success, and those who complain why some have it all, while others get nothing. It is a psychology of a poor. As well as of a lazy. The easiest thing you can do is complain and blame your lack of luck and success on those who "have it all". Definitely there is such thing as sheer luck, but luck does love and visit most of the time those who work hard.
