    I probably should have decided to consume some alcohol instead, but I decided to look into this matter. I didn’t know what to expect when I looked at such lists (which I have never looked at before), so I wasn’t too disappointed.

    Maybe my standards are too high. When I think of “highly successful people” I think of Warren Buffet, Paul Allen, Bill Gates, and some of the pioneers of the PC business and the electronics industry. The most prominent characteristics of such people are ...
  2. Beautiful poem - Peace

    Desse Barama (Peace) by Hamza El Din
    The world shines about me,
    luminous as the moon, smiling like a rose,
    and a sweet benediction
    flows through everything existing.
    How beautiful life is.
    I marvel at people who are not in love with life.
    You, my girl, are beautiful,
    and your beauty,

    Displayed itself to me the saintly host,
    Whom Christ in his own blood had made his bride,

    But the other host, that flying sees and sings
    The glory of Him who doth enamour it,

    One moment, and the next returns again
    To where its labour is to sweetness turned,
