Brain—epitome of the universe

Brain—epitome of the universe

Xuefeng

August 15, 2002

All the material wealth created by man is a realistic reflection of man’s brain. Man’s thinking, memory, speech, and actions are all attributes of human brain. That a society can be organically united to accomplish a goal is also the result of brain activity. All Nobel Prize winners and great men in history distinguish themselves from others because they have made full use of their brains.

“I know what to do. I have a friend who has a contact to one abortionist… I will call him, they did that before and it was done professionally”, he lowered his voice and now trying to call someone from his phone.

“Are you serious? We will abort this?!” sounded almost…

An Old Flame

On one of those cold winter nights, Maryann got a flat and pulled over to the side of the road. She hadn’t been through this part of the city in years. As she stepped out of the car, snow started falling.

She was nervous, but decided to change the tire herself. The traffic was passing fast. She was opening the trunk to get the spare, when a pickup truck pulled up behind him. The door of the car opened and a man stepped out and she saw the emblem of a Gas Station on the driver door. At…

My thinking about love is something different from others. Love is sum of nice feelings which is make u happy and something special that u never felt in your life.

Singlehood –virtual relationship- kids’ moral education

It’s not a bad thing to be single. Life doesn’t start when you get married. I can tell that there’s more to life than to find a partner your mom warned you about.

I’ve been a reader and a hearer of so many stories of single and married people, and though I don’t have a firsthand experience regarding married life, I only rely on what I gathered from storytelling. That doesn’t mean those weren’t valid. I’m a little pessimistic about marriage life because I observed so many difficulties…

The Tsar's Bookmark

 

The story is told about the Russian Emperor Alexander I.  Once he was travelling somewhere in Russia, maybe to visit a relative or a nobleman, or on business. That is irrelevant anyway. They stopped at a station to change horses. While the servants were busy, Alexander I entered the station to keep himself warm. On the table in the room he saw an open Bible. The Tsar asked the stationmaster: “Do you read it?” The stationmaster answered promptly:”Certainly, Your Majesty!…
