The road to peace

I wondered myself the other day how could I define a successful person after I watched a documentary about Benjamin Franklin. Although Franklin had a list of great accomplishments, going from poverty to riches, inventing so many things (lightning rod, bifocals, swim fins, Franklin stove, urinary catheter etc) I was dissapointed by his attitude in […]

Heroes want solutions

I came across recently upon a very nice quote, which sparked my attention. It is a quote of  Winston Churchill. He said “I am easily satisfied with the very best”. I took a deep breath and started to think. In our society most people settle. It is easy to give in to peer pressure and […]

The miracle of life

There is a very cute detail for the eyes to look at when you see a couple having a summer walk while caring for their newborn baby in the stroller: baby feet. It is so adorable to see those tiny forms of what will help us walk most of our lives. We as adults barely […]

Dream a little dream of me

Falling in love with someone new after a break up is difficult. The heart needs to heal. It is particularly even more difficult when you did not receive proper apologies or had stuff explained to get a sort of closure. Nowadays people do things over the phone and then act like it is all ok. […]

Fortitudine vincimus

Justice is a fine art word. I used to think as a child that you can find justice to be done fairly and that it is fair to expect people to be interested in doing things the right way. I was naive. The problem with justice is that it is almost never universal. Each person […]

Side by side

What is one of the most hurtful thing that could happen to your heart? On a level of pain from 1 to 10, there are so many things that people would describe as a dagger in their soul. 1 being a small one, 10 being the full force army style one. What hurts very slightly […]
