There have been many painful crises since the impatient vanity of South Carolina hurried ten prosperous Commonwealths into a crime whose assured retribution was to leave them either at the mercy of the nation they had wronged, or of the anarchy they had summoned but could not control, when no thoughtful American opened his morning paper without dreading to find that he had no longer a country to love and honor. Whatever the result of the convulsion whose first shocks were beginning to be felt, there would still be enough square miles of earth for elbow-room; but that ineffable sentiment made up of memory and hope, of instinct and tradition, which swells every man’s heart and shapes his thought, though perhaps never present to his consciousness, would be gone from it, leaving it common earth and nothing more. Men might gather rich crops from it, but that ideal harvest of priceless associations would be reaped no longer; that fine virtue which sent up messages of courage and security from every sod of it would have evaporated beyond recall. We should be irrevocably cut off from our past, and be forced to splice the ragged ends of our lives upon whatever new conditions chance might leave dangling for us.

There are certain names which are familiar, as names, to all mankind; and every person who seeks for any degree of mental cultivation, feels desirous of informing himself of the leading outlines of their history, that he may know, in brief, what it was in their characters or their doings which has given them so widely-extended a fame. Consequently, great historical names alone are selected; and it has been the writer's aim to present the prominent and leading traits in their characters, and all the important events in their lives, in a bold and free manner, and yet in the plain and simple language which is so obviously required in works which aim at permanent and practical usefulness. This volume is dedicated to Hannibal.

La vida no suele ser como la pinta la publicidad o el cine, sobretodo el fantàstico... Rafael Hoffman, un joven asesino a sueldo, amante de prostitutas, quebradero de cabezas para algunas chicas y renegado de su pasado. ¿Te gustaria conocer a alguien que pueda asesinarte mientras bailas y tu no percatarte? ¿Crees que se trata de un asesino cualquiera que mata por placer? Oh, ¿acaso quieres ver otra forma de ver la vida, cuando el mundo se destruye a si mismo? Este diario cuenta varias de mis peripecias como asesino, no puedo prometerte muchas cosas, pero una de ellas es que verás que no soy como los sicarios habituales. No esperes que todas y cada una de las páginas estén manchadas de sangre, pues vas a encontrar aquí las pasiones humanas en su estado puro, en lo bueno y en lo malo... Me dejaba por decir, que la sátira que me encanta la sátira, si me lees sabrás porqué... Listo para seguirme?

The young Augustine does, however, catch a passion for the pursuit of Philosophical truth, learning the doctrines of Manicheism, skepticism, and Neoplatonism. This last philosophy will have a profound influence on him-- theConfessions are perhaps the most masterful expression of his intricate fusion of Catholic theology with Neoplatonic ideas. Moving back to Thagaste, then back to Carthage again, and on to Rome and Milan, Augustine continues to wrestle with his doubts about what he has learned and with his budding interest in Catholicism, the faith of his mother, Monica. He also continues to pursue his career as a teacher of rhetoric (an occupation he later frowns upon as the salesmanship of empty words) and his habits of indulgence in sex and other pleasures of the sensual world. Things change in Milan, where Augustine finally decides that Catholicism holds the only real truth. Convinced of this but lacking the will to make the leap into a fully devoted life (including baptism and sexual abstinence), Augustine has a famous conversion experience in his Milan garden and becomes a devoted and chaste Catholic.

Darwin wrote the book, which he entitled Recollections of the Development of my Mind and Character, for his family. He still stands as the leading figure of that revolution in scientific thought which followed the publication of the Origin of Species in the middle of the 19th century, a revolution soon involving all realms of knowledge. But posterity must continually reassess the past, and accurate contemporary sources are specially needed to provide insight into those stormy seasons when the wind of accepted belief changes. The great figures must be seen in their own setting and their own words must be heard, cleared of the posthumous growth of later dogmas. In the Autobiography Charles Darwin tells the story of the slow maturing of his mind and of his theories, leading to the publication of the Linnean paper with A. R. Wallace in 1858, and of the Origin of Species in 1859. The time has come for restoring the suppressions made in 1887. The occasional astringency of some passages had to be censored seventy years ago out of deference to the feelings of friends; now these comments not only seem harmless, but are revealing flashes lighting up the past.

Ortega y Gasset murió el 18 de octubre de 1956. Había nacido en Madrid el 9 de mayo de 1883. La Restauración está en su fase central: reina Alfonso XII. Era hijo de José Ortega Munilla y Dolores Gasset. Pertenecía por ambas familias a círculos muy representativos de la cultura y la política de la Restauración. Su padre era escritor, novelista y cuentista, recibido en 1902 en la Academia Española, fue más que otra cosa periodista. El Imparcial, diario fundado en 1867 por el abuelo materno de Ortega, Eduardo Gasset y Artime, el más importante de la Restauración, fue su principal tribuna. Ortega estuvo en el periodismo casi desde sus primeros años, viviendo en una familia donde la vida pública – letras y política –resonaba con inmediatez. Por eso pudo decir que había nacido sobre una rotativa.

This volume of memoirs has a double character - historical and intimate. The life of a period, the XIX Century, is bound up in the life of a man, VICTOR HUGO. As we follow the events set forth we get the impression they made upon the mind of the extraordinary man who recounts them; and of all the personages he brings before us he himself is assuredly not the least interesting. In portraits from the brushes of Rembrandts there are always two portraits, that of the model and that of the painter.

Vendedor: Public Domain

To the Lighthouse is a 1927 novel by Virginia Woolf. A landmark of high modernism, the novel centres on the Ramsays and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920. Following and extending the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, the plot of To the Lighthouse is secondary to its philosophical introspection. The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. The novel recalls childhood emotions and highlights adult relationships. Among the book's many tropes and themes are those of loss, subjectivity, and the problem of perception. The novel is set in the Ramsays' summer home in the Hebrides, on the Isle of Skye. The section begins with Mrs Ramsay assuring her son James that they should be able to visit the lighthouse on the next day. This prediction is denied by Mr Ramsay, who voices his certainty that the weather will not be clear, an opinion that forces a certain tension between Mr and Mrs Ramsay, and also between Mr Ramsay and James. This particular incident is referred to on various occasions throughout the section, especially in the context of Mr and Mrs Ramsay's relationship. The Ramsays and their eight children have been joined at the house by a number of friends and colleagues. One of them, Lily Briscoe, begins the novel as a young, uncertain painter attempting a portrait of Mrs. Ramsay and James. Briscoe finds herself plagued by doubts throughout the novel, doubts largely fed by the claims of Charles Tansley, another guest, who asserts that women can neither paint nor write. Tansley himself is an admirer of Mr Ramsay, a philosophy professor, and his academic treatises.

This is biographical book. Wilhelm Richard Wagner (German: 22 May 1813 – 13 February 1883) was a German composer, theatre director, polemicist, and conductor who is primarily known for his operas (or, as some of his later works were later known",music dramas"). Unlike most opera composers, Wagner wrote both the libretto and the music for each of his stage works. Initially establishing his reputation as a composer of works in the romantic vein of Weber and Meyerbeer, Wagner revolutionised opera through his concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk ('total work of art'), by which he sought to synthesise the poetic, visual, musical and dramatic arts, with music subsidiary to drama, and which was announced in a series of essays between 1849 and 1852. Wagner realised these ideas most fully in the first half of the four-opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung). His compositions, particularly those of his later period, are notable for their complex textures, rich harmonies and orchestration, and the elaborate use of leitmotifs—musical phrases associated with individual characters, places, ideas or plot elements. His advances in musical language, such as extreme chromaticism and quickly shifting tonal centres, greatly influenced the development of classical music. His Tristan und Isolde is sometimes described as marking the start of modern music.

As president, Abraham Lincoln had one goal and that was to preserve the Union at all costs. His determination to hold the North and South together would ultimately lead to the bloodiest war in American history, the abolition of slavery, and his own untimely death from an assassin's bullet. But to see Lincoln solely as a tragic figure consumed with the strife of mid-nineteenth century America is to miss meeting him as a man who never allowed himself to be defeated by adversity or grief or turmoil. From his earliest days on the frontier, he endured the loss of his beloved mother and the demanding physical challenges of a rough-and-ready land where death came easily and education was rare; where ambition was rewarded if a man proved himself willing to work hard; where love was attainable, even for a man whose physical appearance was most charitably described as homely.  Inside you will read about... ✓ Born on the Frontier ✓ Lincoln's Life in New Salem ✓ The Election of 1860 ✓ The House Divides ✓ The Tide Turns ✓ The End ✓ The Legacy of Lincoln Lincoln arose from poverty and ignorance to become a man of influence and eloquence whose speeches continue to resonate with a nation that aspires to meet his ideals. Lincoln had his detractors and enemies but throughout his years, he had a remarkable ability to remain unpoisoned by his foes and to retain compassion for those who opposed him. Meet Abraham Lincoln, the frontier president whose death made him a martyr but whose life made him a hero.

Chopin! doux et harmonieux génie! Quel est le cœur auquel il fut cher, quelle est la personne à laquelle il fut familier qui, en l'entendant nommer, n'éprouve un tressaillement, comme au souvenir d'un être supérieur qu'il eut la fortune de connaître? Mais, quelque regretté qu'il soit par tous les artistes et par tous ses nombreux amis, il nous est peut-être permis de douter que le moment soit déjà venu où, apprécié à sa juste valeur, celui dont la perte nous est si particulièrement sensible, occupe dans l'estime universelle le haut rang que lui réserve l'avenir.

This book story was the service of Madam de Vercellis nearly as. The Confessions is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In modern times. I had entered it, I returned to my former hostess, and remained there five or six weeks; during which time health, youth, and laziness, frequently rendered my temperament importunate. I was restless, absent, and thoughtful: I wept and sighed for a happiness I had no idea of, though at the same time highly sensible of some deficiency. This situation is indescribable, few men can even form any conception of it, because, in general, they have prevented that plenitude of life, at once tormenting and delicious. My thoughts were incessantly occupied with girls and women, but in a manner peculiar to myself: these ideas kept my senses in a perpetual and disagreeable activity, though, fortunately, they did not point out the means of deliverance. I was never well informed of the motives of this journey. I am certain she would have told me had I asked her, but never was man less curious to learn the secrets of his friend.

Le pagine che sfoglieremo ci permetteranno di conoscere il Maestro Cristian Raimo, italiano dalla molteplicità creativa nell’ambito interpretativo musicale, nell’organizzazione e nella progettazione. L’inventiva e l’ambizione di rinnovare il settore si manifesta con il primo codice etico dell’artista pubblicato su Apple Store. Conosceremo un uomo che osa ridisegnare un antico mestiere che l’Italia ha di recente portato a laurea universitaria. Ci faremo trasportare nel sacro, nel mistero, riscoprendo il “kapellmeister” (maestro di cappella) e faremo un balzo in uno show televisivo per dimostrare come la Musica possa avvolgere ogni momento della nostra vita. Osare, riscrivere, rifare il vestito di quello ch’è ormai obsoleto, il tutto con un’indole musicale di famiglia e un’ingrediente straordinario: il coraggio. Questo è Cristian Raimo, nato artista per diventare musicista “Maestro”, come lo chiama la gente della metropoli. Il suo slogan è “Vivere in Musica” e di una passione ne fa una professione. Il suo sogno è quello di continuare a divulgare e portare le emozioni e i sentimenti con la forma più nobile: l’Arte.

Si pudiera volver a vivir un solo día con mi madre de los casi trece mil que pasé a su lado, escogería aquel en que fue a recogerme a la escuela vestida de rosa y oliendo también a rosa. Aquella vez, en la solapa de su abrigo, ella llevaba una flor hermosa, a pesar de que era negra. Iba peinada de chongo y el pelo cobrizo le brillaba como nunca. Sus ojos verdes hablaban de que acababa de hacer el amor con mi padre, aunque eso no lo supe entonces. Cuando la vi, le dije que había olvidado mi suéter en clase porque quería que se quedara más tiempo en la puerta de la escuela para que todas mis amigas la vieran. Si pudiera volver a vivir ese día con mi madre, le confesaría que a veces sentía celos de su piel de nácar, de sus larguísimas uñas y de sus manos esbeltas y que no entiendo por qué no la abracé más seguido si se me antojaba hacerlo siempre que se me acercaba. Le pediría que me contara otra vez su tristeza de niña cuando oyó a unas señoras cuchichear al verla: ¨pobre de Amparo, es huérfana¨. Le pediría que me lo contara otra vez para consolarla diciéndole que he ido sembrando árboles para rescatar su esencia. Porque yo siempre supe que mi madre amaba las plantas, aunque lo hiciera en secreto como solía hacerlo todo por su timidez. Si volviera a vivir ese día con mi madre, le pediría perdón por haber preferido a mi padre, porque sé que ese día ella lo hubiera entendido. Le diría todo esto a mi madre cuando fue a buscarme a la escuela vestida de rosa y oliendo también a rosa porque nunca volví a verla más abierta. Porque nunca volví a verla tan contenta. Si hoy pudiera volver a vivir ese día con mi madre, me convertiría en su madre aunque sólo fuera un instante.

TRUE CRIME: WOMEN SERIAL KILLERS Our society can barely account for evil in males, let alone imagine it in females. The female nests, creates, and nurtures doesn’t she or is it that we just want to believe in the intrinsic non-threatening nature of women? Yet, history is full of instrumentally violent women: women who have fought wars and battles throughout the world, with no less ferociousness than men, women such as Dynamis of Bosphorous, who starved her husband to death and took control of his kingdom, or Artemisia, the queen of Halicarnassus in the 5th century, who conducted a brilliant but brutal military campaign against the Greeks. Mary Tudor, Queen Mary 1 of England, in 1553 became known as “Bloody Mary,” for her extreme cruelty and willingness to execute people. In this short book meet 17 less known but equally murderous cold blooded women. After reading it you may find your perception of the gentler sex changed irrevocably. Enjoy.

This is is biographical book. With the year 1870 comes another turning-point in Huxley’s career. From his return to England in 1850 till 1854 he had endured four years of hard struggle, of hope deferred; his reputation as a zoologist had been established before his arrival, and was more than confirmed by his personal energy and power. When at length settled in the professorship at Jermyn Street, he was so far from thinking himself more than a beginner who had learned to work in one corner of the field of knowledge, still needing deep research into all kindred subjects in order to know the true bearings of his own little portion, that he treated the next six years simply as years of further apprenticeship. Under the suggestive power of the 'Origin of Species' all these scattered studies fell suddenly into due rank and order; the philosophic unity he had so long been seeking inspired his thought with tenfold vigour, and the battle at Oxford in defence of the new hypothesis first brought him before the public eye as one who not only had the courage of his convictions when attacked, but could, and more, would, carry the war effectively into the enemy’s country. And for the next ten years he was commonly identified with the championship of the most unpopular view of the time; a fighter, an assailant of long-established fallacies, he was too often considered a mere iconoclast, a subverter of every other well-rooted institution, theological, educational, or moral.
