Ralph Waldo Emerson about first journeys discoveries, a fool’s paradise


Traveling is a fool’s paradise. Our first journeys discover to us the indifference of places.

EXTREMOPHILES


Extremophiles

Extremophiles are microorganisms that thrive in environments with extreme conditions, such as high or low temperatures or pH levels, high salt concentration, or high pressure. Found in hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor, they produce the vivid colors of some hot springs. Due to extremophiles’ ability to thrive in conditions detrimental to most life on Earth, some scientists theorize that they may reflect what life may be like on other planets. How are extremophiles used industrially? More… Discuss

Past midnight (poetic thought by George-B)

Is pretty much past midnight…
And sleeping is a dream;
I grow aware of a drip, DRIP…DRIP –
The kitchen faucet licks its wounds,
Silently,as much as it can,
but still….
It makes me interject:
“But please, can’t you keep it quiet?
I need my sleep,
in case I never get to sleep another night!”

Quotation: Ralph Waldo Emerson on man,receiving gifts and resentment thereof


It is not the office of a man to receive gifts … We wish to be self-sustained. We do not quite forgive a giver. The hand that feeds us is in some danger of being bitten.
