Quotes about women

Before writing more stories about women I want to introduce to you quotes below. They show my understanding of role of women in our world.

********************************************************************************************************

A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.

Coco Chanel

Man does not control his own fate. The women in his life do that for him.

Groucho Marx

The age of a woman doesn’t mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

Timothy Leary

God gave women intuition and femininity. Used properly, the combination easily jumbles the brain of any man I’ve ever met.

Farrah Fawcett

Ways to become a genius

I did not plan to publish another post today.

However, I got an email from one of my friends with many fascinated facts in it.

One of them was especially interested. It was about Derek Amato.

There was only a short sentence about him in the email. I wanted to verify the fact and to know more about what happened to the guy.

So I went to Google and found.that BRAIN DAMAGE UNLOCKS GENIUS.

Now I understand why so many healthy people (including some of our leaders) behave extremely stupidly later. Apparently, they need blows to their heads.

Dangerous paintings (part 3)

This is the last part of my review of the article “Dangerous paintings” written (in Russian) by Pauline Larina.

In the part 1 Larina wrote about dangerous paintings in America (SEE HERE) and in the part 2 about such paintings in Russia (HERE).

Naturally, she wrote about dangerous paintings in Europe too.

She states, that a mass-produced print of the painting “The Crying Boy” by Italian painter Bruno Amadio, also known as Giovanni Bragolin burned many houses in the North of England in the 1980s.

According to Pauline, the artist’s son was a model for the painting. However, a boy did not cry and the artist started to burn matches near his face.

Then the boy shouted: “I want you to burn!”. Very soon the boy died from pneumonia and there was a fire in the artist’s house. The artist and almost all his paintings burned in the fire.

I want to add here that my brief research on the internet tells a different but still very interesting story. You can read it HERE.

Pauline Larina also mentions “Water Lilies” by Claude Monet. She says that soon after he finished the painting there was a fire in his studio. Later there were fires in other places where there was this painting: a cabaret on Montmartre, in the house of a French collector of art, in the New York Museum of Modern Art.

Finally, Pauline Larina tells that some paintings carefully studied by experts. Chemists explore the paint and canvas, physics – the impact of sunlight on the image, etc.

Some professionals in Russia came to conclusion that one icon in the Hermitage distributed mighty energy around itself, making a human brain to vibrate at high frequency.

Similar conclusions about energy from paintings came from researchers in the Pinakothek in Munich, in the Louvre, in other galleries.

Larina says that if some painting makes you uncomfortable you should urgently walk away from it.

 

 

A joke?!

My wife told me today that my recent posts are too serious.
So I had to reblog a joke.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

I got an email from Chicago with Russian jokes in it.

During our morning’s walk I told my wife one of them and she liked it.

Then I asked Google Translate to help me and edited the translation.

Here is what we got:

“Adam and Eve frolicking in the garden. God descends to them and says: “My children, I have two gifts for you. You’ll have to decide which one to whom. The first gift is peeing standing up “…

Adam begs to let him have the first gift. He says that it is his lifelong dream. Eve yields to him. And Adam runs through the garden, rejoicing, jumping, screaming, and peeing on trees, flowers, insects and simply on the ground.

Then Eve asks: “Lord, what is your second gift?”

God answers: “Brains, Eve. Brains.”

Okay, I've done that stupid trick of sticking my paw up in the air. Now where's that tasty treat you promised me? Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons

PS. I hope that translation is good enough to express the idea.
