Literature

Poems, plays, stories and other written works that people read over and over again are called literature. Literature can make us think or make us laugh or cry. Literature can entertain us and teach us at the same time. Literature never gets old. Some great poems and plays were written more than 2500 years ago, yet seem fresh and new.

There are three main kinds of literature: poetry, fiction, and non-fiction.



Poetry: poetry is usually not written the way people normally speak.… Continue

Which are your favourite languages?

I love English, Italian, Portuguese, French, German and Spanish.
I use English fluently and I'm also learning Italian and Portuguese at the same time. I perceive that Italian, Portuguese and French are not too different and if you are fluent in one, you can learn others easier.
After finished learning Italian and Portuguese, I will study Spanish and French, and finally will be German.

Then repent and commit no sin.

When death knocked upon a bedroom door,

"Who is there?" The sleeping one cried,

"I am Izrael, Let me come inside.



At once the man… Continue

trying to understand how they feel, and truly wishing them the very

best… Continue

Karma

karma means, performing positive actions results in a good condition, whereas a negative action results in a bad effect. The effects may be seen immediately or delayed. Delay can be until later in the present life or in the next.

Sentences!!!

There is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But its better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you are fighting for.





The two worst strategic mistakes to make are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity slip. To avoid this,the warrior treats each situation as if it were unique and never resorts to formulae, recipes or other people’s opinions..
