English is Cool

Twelve words

The invitation was cool and came from Luísa. I have to choose
a dozen words and then put them together in a piece of writing.

It's not so easy to choose just a few words and it's even more
difficult to write something with them when you're someone
who usually publishes somebody else's words. So I've decided:
I'm publishing a few quotes where my twelve chosen words
will be highlighted.

A friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where
you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently
allows you to grow.

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.

Come sleep with me: we won't make love. Love will make us.

As soon as you trust yourself you'll know how to live.

We think too much and feel too little.

Knowledge is only one half. Faith is the other.

And now I should invite twelve blog friends to do the same,
however, I prefer to invite all of you who want to choose the
words and post something with them.

Have a sweet nice week, folks :)

Há um site onde consultar pronúncia que coloco
aqui How J Say e depois vai ficar também o link, alí
abaixo do One Look, aquele outro site onde consultar
vários dicionários ao mesmo tempo. Isto tudo está
mais para baixo, do lado direito. Quando eu aprender
algo mais sobre editar meu modelo vou trazê-los para
cima e deixá-los mais à mão.

There's a site where we can listen to words or phrases
pronunciation which is linked here How J Say, and
afterwards will be found below One Look where we can
look up words in several dictionaries at once. The links
are down there on the right-hand side bar. When I get
to know a bit more about how to edit my template I will
bring them up closer at hand.

Good day, friends!

Inspired by Amaral's latest


Poetry is indispensable. If only I knew what for.
Jean Cocteau

Science arose from poetry. When times change
the two can meet again on a higher level as friends.

A new term is at the doorstep.
Time to teach dear old friends anew.
Time to meet new students, too.
Therefore a bit of retrenchment posting.
I won't be away though. Just less often.

In the meantime, I'd like to introduce
to you a dear friend's brand new blog.

A couple of weather puns

When the smog lifts in Los Angeles, UCLA.

It was raining cats and dogs.
There were poodles all over the road.

Two lovers who had been apart for sometime were reunited
on a foggy day. One whispered to the other: "I mist you."

Trocadilhos à parte, o clima tem estado bem gostoso
nestas terras do sul ultimamente. Sol sem ser escaldante
e brisas suaves que não se cansam de soprar.
