Author Anonymous

There is a place you can touch a woman that will drive her crazy. Her heart.

Melanie Griffith

Never go to bed mad -- stay up and fight.

Phyllis Diller

To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Samuel Johnson

A man is already halfway in love with any woman who listens to him.

The Art of Listening

One must listen with humility. Forget your own experiences. Stop evaluating as something is being said. Don’t assume things. Don’t let your predetermined image of the person distort what you are listening. As they say, to see a tree you must become the tree, meaning you should not see the tree through the image of a tree already formed in your mind. Each experience is fresh and has to be viewed new every time.

Don’t interrupt the speaker’s flow of thought. Ask a question to confirm that you were indeed listening. Nod your head to encourage the speaker. If you’ve really missed something, ask him to repeat. Occasional interruptions help to keep in touch with the speaker.

Listen for gaps between what you say and what you do. This helps to bridge the inadequacies in your personality. It helps you to keep up with your image. It gives you the feedback so vital to plugging the gaps in your character.

Power of Glamour

Glamour, that trans-human aura or power to attract imitation, is a kind of vessel into which dreams are poured, and some vessels are simply worthier than others... A beautiful woman can turn heads but real glamour has a deeper pull... Glamour [is] the power to rearrange people's emotions, which, in effect, is the power to control one's environment.

Inspirational Zen Story

There's a classic Zen story about two celibate monks who are walking on a pilgrimage. They come across a girl who is very lovely and beautiful and sexual, and she wants to cross the river. The young monk is attracted to her, and he says, "I'll take you on my shoulders and carry you across the river and drop you off on the other side." He does that, and the two monks continue on their pilgrimage until after a while the old monk starts to have a frown on his face. He's upset. Six hours, seven hours go by, and finally he looks at the young one and says, "I can't believe you did that." "Did what?" the young monk asks. "You carried that woman on your shoulders." "I dropped her off six hours ago," the young monk says. And the old monk responds, "But you're still carrying her."

Sad Love Poems

You are gone

I used to love you.

You are gone

That's the plain truth.

You are gone

Never coming back.

You are gone

My new heart's black.

But since you're gone

I guess it's okay

To find new love

The same way.

Is that alright?

You won't get mad?

'Cuz even though we used to be in love

You've made me sad.

So You'll repay

Repay Today.

For what you did.

You're paying.

You are Gone.

Gain insight into current enumeration trends. Access corporate salary information from the Net, business newspapers or magazine surveys. Drop into recruitment firms and check out for further information. This will tell you how high up you can peg your raise.

Love Letter from Robert Browning

I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett, - and this is no off-hand complimentary letter that I shall write, - whatever else, no prompt matter-of-course recognition of your genius and there a graceful and natural end of the thing: since the day last week when I first read your poems, I quite laugh to remember how I have been turning and turning again in my mind what I should be able to tell you of their effect upon me - for in the first flush of delight I thought I would this once get out of my habit of purely passive enjoyment, when I do really enjoy, and thoroughly justify my admiration - perhaps even, as a loyal fellow craftsman should, try and find fault and do you some little good to be proud of hereafter! - but nothing comes of it all - so into me has it gone, and part of me has it become, this great living poetry of your, not a flower of which but took root and grew ... oh, how different that is from lying to be dried and pressed flat and prized highly and put in a book with a proper account at top and bottom, and shut up and put away... and the book called a 'Flora', besides!

After all, I need not give up the thought of doing that, too, in time; because even now, talking with whoever is worthy, I can give a reason form my faith in one and another excellence, the fresh strange music, the affluent language, the exquisite pathos and true new brave thought - but in this addressing myself to you, your own self, and for the first time, my feeling rises altogether.

I do, as I say, love these Books with all my heart - and I love you too; do you know I was once not very far from seeing - really seeing you? Mr. Kenyon said to me one morning "would you like to see Miss Barrett?" - then he went to announce me, - then he returned ... you were too unwell - and now it is years ago - and I feel as at some untoward passage in my travels - as if I had been close, so close, to some world's-wonder in chapel or crypt, ... only a screen to push and I might have entered - but there was some slight... so it now seems... slight and just-sufficient bar to admission, and the half-opened door shut, and I went home my thousands of miles, and the sight was never to be!

Well, these Poems were to be - and this true thankful joy and pride with which I feel myself.

Yours ever faithfully

Robert Browning

Positive Advice on Fitness

Physical activity helps you lose weight and avoid gaining it back. You don’t need to become a world class athlete, just 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity (walking, running, swimming anything that gets your heart pumping) three or more times a week will help you melt away the extra kilos and help you feel better overall. And physical activity has the added benefit of suppressing your appetite and improving your overall health.

If you think you’re too busy to exercise, remember that you can accumulate those 30 minutes throughout the day (10 minutes in the morning, 10 minutes in the afternoon and another 10 minutes in the evening, for example). This works well if you don’t have time to exercise for 30 minutes all at once. Sedentary people shouldn’t leap into vigorous exercise right away. Start with 5 or 10 minutes of physical activity and gradually increase your time.
