Being healthy is natural. So is being non-violent intrinsic to man. Sounds odd, doesn’t it? Have you ever wondered sickness is a visitor that comes and goes, but is not within us.

Repair in a moving cry of despair?

Many of the English hymnodist William Cowper’s poems are a mental record of his mood swings of severe depression.

Olympian heirarchy’s loveliest maiden

In the days of the old, it so happened that men on earth started paying homage less and less to the temple of Aphrodite; it went increasingly unprayed and its altar uncleaned from neglect. Many a times not even the incense sticks were burned. Venus, the goddess of beauty to the Greeks, as Aphrodite,... Sign in to see full entry.
