Can Money Buy?  

(A poetic thought by George-B)

Can money buy everything?

Money can buy everything, that’s material, 
perishable, changeable, chargeable…

Can money buy a soul,
Can it buy a heart, Gods, anything nonperishable,  

something immortal?  
Can money buy wisdom? 

No,
but wisdom can buy the peace of mind, 
that no amount of money
will ever buy…

Blogging Woolf

This week, on the Women’s Media Center website, Courtney Martin writes of experiencing Life in Lady Writer Heaven at Hedgebrook Farm on Whidbey Island off the coast of Seattle, and of course she alludes to Virginia Woolf:

While in residence here, each woman gets a “cottage-of-one’s-own” that would make even Virginia Woolf giddy.

Quotation: Virginia Woolf on communicating pure truth (if you have something to say…make it memorable)


The first duty of a lecturer—to hand you after an hour’s discourse a nugget of pure truth to wrap up between the pages of your notebooks, and keep on the mantelpiece forever.

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) Discuss

This is the only surviving recording of Virginia Woolf’s voice. It is part of a BBC radio broadcast from April 29th, 1937. The talk was called “Craftsmanship” and was part of a series entitled “Words Fail Me”.
The audio is accompanied by a slideshow of photographs of Virginia Woolf.

The text was published as an essay in “The Death of the Moth and Other Essays” (1942), and I’ve transcribed the recorded portion here:

Today’s Birthday: MAXWELL PERKINS (1884)


 

Maxwell Perkins (1884)

After joining the publishing firm of Charles Scribner’s Sons, Perkins became an enormously well-regarded editor with a genius for recognizing and fostering new talent. Though best known for the intensive editorial work that shaped Thomas Wolfe‘s sprawling manuscripts into publishable form, he also edited and published early works by then-unknown writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Erskine Caldwell. How many words did Perkins persuade Wolfe to cut from his first novel? More… Discuss

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: JAMES MEREDITH IS BARRED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI (1962)


James Meredith Is Barred from the University of Mississippi (1962)

After a US federal court ruled that colleges could not deny admission to qualified students on the basis of race, civil rights activist James Meredith prepared to enter the segregated University of Mississippi. On the day of Meredith’s enrollment, Mississippi Governor Ross Barnett stood in the doorway of the admissions office, physically blocking Meredith’s entry, and informed him that his application was denied. Ten days later, Meredith returned—with 500 federal marshals. What happened then? More… Discuss

Healthy Life: CONTROVERSIAL STUDY SUGGESTS MODIFIED CORN IS UNSAFE


 

Controversial Study Suggests Modified Corn Is Unsafe

Genetically modified (GM) crops are widely grown and consumed in the US, but a controversial new study is raising questions about their safety. Researchers claim that rats fed a type of GM corn that is resistant to the popular weedkiller Roundup or given Roundup-tainted water developed tumors, suffered organ damage, and died earlier than those on a standard diet. Experts, however, are wary of the findings, noting that the study authors failed to publish key details, such as how much the rats were fed and what their growth rates were, and utilized unconventional statistical methods to analyze the dataMore… Discuss
