Today is the full bloom of life!
Today is the full bloom of life. The petals of yesterday have withered into the past.
Tomorrow is an unopened but that may be blackened by frosts of fate. 
The future is a but a seed, not yet planted, of unknown quantity. 
But today is a gorgeous blossom of beauty and fragrance. 
Today is a new page in the books of life. Upon it and upon it alone, you can write a record of your accomplishments. But once turned, it is gone forever.

What is Beauty? 
Socrates called beauty a shot lived tyranny,
Plato, a privilege of nature
Theophrastus a silent cheat
Theocritus a delightful prejudice
Carneades, a solitary Kingdom
Aristotle it was better than all the letters of recommendation in the world.
Homer, It was a glorious gift of nature
Ovid, It was a fever bestowed by the gods

Funny English
A pin has head but no eyes
And a needle has an eye but no head
A chair has legs but no feet
And a ruler has feet but no legs
A book has leaves but no branches
A railway has a bridge but no nose
A bullet has a nose but no bridge
A river has a mouth but no neck
And a saw has teeth but no head
