How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day

By: Arnold Bennett

Which of us lives on twenty-four hours a day? And when I say 'lives,' I do not mean exists, nor 'muddles through.' -- Arnold Bennett knew a rat race when he saw one. Every day, his fellow white-collar Londoners followed the same old routine. And they routinely decried the sameness in their lives.-- So Bennett set out to explain how to inject new enthusiasm into living. In this delightful little work, he taught his fellow sufferers how to set time apart for improving their lives. Yes, he assured them, it could be done. Yes, if you want to feel connected with the world, instead of endlessly pacing the treadmill (or, exceeding your programme, as he called it), you must do so.-- For time, as he gleefully notes, is the ultimate democracy. Each of us starts our day with 24 hours to spend. Even a saint gets not a minute more; even the most inveterate time-waster is docked not a second for his wastrel ways. And he can choose today to turn over a new leaf! -- Bennett believed that learning to discern cause and effect in the world would give his readers an endless source of enjoyment and satisfaction. Instead of only being able to discuss wha...

Life Strategies Part One : Works

By: Florentin Smarandache

These ideas were either collected or inspired from author's various lectures of books, journals, newspapers, tv and radio shows, personal conversations. I started to write down such ideas since I was a high school student and continue even today - I always bear with me a small pen and small notebook where I write in the plane, or driving my car, or even in class room. Despite three decades of postponement, I hope this booklet will keep on inspiring the reader, as good ideas will always be worth to ponder....

• Be competitive; • Don’t be panic, when under pressure; • Use probabilities (how much % you’re expected to produce); • Infiltrate in certain organizations; • To have power of influence; • Charm those who interact with you; • Be firm and fast in decisions; • To make a plan for a long period of time and subdivide it in smaller sub-plans for short periods of time...

And it is by way of being advice also. Your true convert must always preach. (Introduction by Mary Roberts Rinehart quoted from the text.)...

By: William Cowper

volunteers bring you 14 recordings of The Flatting-Mill by William Cowper. This was the Fortnightly Poetry project for May 1, 2011.

One of the most popular poets of his time, Cowper changed the direction of 18th century nature poetry by writing of everyday life and scenes of the English countryside. In many ways, he was one of the forerunners of Romantic poetry. Samuel Taylor Coleridge called him the best modern poet, whilst William Wordsworth particularly admired his poem Yardley-Oak. He was a nephew of the poet Judith Madan. (summary from Wikipedia)...

Stops, or How to Punctuate

By: Paul Allardyce

Throughout the ages, languages continue to adapt and change. English, being a relatively new language, is a nice example of that. Though the English vocabulary is continually evolving, the system of punctuation has remained constant for the most part. This means that grammar books from 1895 are still applicable today. Therefore, if the following sentence looks correct to you, perhaps listening to Paul Allardyce's Stops, or How to Punctuate would be a good idea. This, is a recording, all recording's are in the public domain. (Summary by Shurtagal)...

Fábulas, volume 2

By: Esopo

Esopo é um lendário autor grego, que teria vivido na Antigüidade, ao qual se atribui a paternidade da fábula como gênero literário. As Fábulas de Esopo serviram como base para recriações de outros escritores ao longo dos séculos, como Fedro e La Fontaine. Fabulista grego do século VI a.C.. O local de seu nascimento é incerto — Trácia, Frígia, Etiópia, Samos, e Sardes todas clamam a honra. Eventualmente morreu em Delfos. Na verdade, todos os dados referentes a Esopo são discutíveis e trata-se mais de um personagem lendário do que histórico. A única certeza é que as fábulas a ele atribuídas foram reunidas pela primeira vez por Demétrio de Falero, em 325 a.C.. Esopo teria sido um escravo, que foi libertado pelo seu dono, que ficou encantado com suas fábulas. Ao que tudo indica, viajou pelo mundo antigo e conheceu o Egito, a Babilónia e o Oriente. Concretamente, não há indícios seguros de que tenha escrito qualquer coisa. Entretanto, foi-lhe atribuído um conjunto de pequenas histórias, de carácter moral e alegórico, cujos papéis principais eram desenvolvidos por animais. Na Atenas do século V a.C., essas fábulas eram conhecidas e apreci...
