World

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

William Shakespeare

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Jawaharlal Nehru

For women only

The only time a woman really succeeds in changing a man is when he is a baby.

5 quotes about women

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 are made to be loved, not understood.

Oscar Wilde

Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.

Amelia Earhart

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

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.

Lady on the bicycle.

I looked at my stats and found that old post “Lady on the bicycle” was the most popular post on this blog. It’s time to reblog it for new followers. Hopefully, they’ll like it.
