Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 190

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

If Timor Lank had not vanquished the Turkish army in 1400, then the Byzantium Capital of Constantinople would have fallen 50 years earlier, along with most of Europe. There would have been no Renaissance

In 1400, the enmities between Genoa and Venice was at its zenith, the Kingdom of Poland was weak, there was no Russian Empire, and the King Henry of Portugal had not begun challenging the high seas to discover new routes to India and the Far East. There would be no Western Europe or the Renaissance if the Ottoman army was Not completely defeated by Timorlane.

And the King of France Charles 8 would not have entered and ruined Rome and displaced the skilled artisans and thinkers, all located and concentrated in Papal Rome, dispersing them to all over western Europe that started the Renaissance.

Robert Reilly said about the puritanical trials of the homosexuals in Britain: “The many biographers have given the facts, but they left out the feelings.”

Oscar Wilde told his wife Frances: “Shall I ever conquer that harsh and golden city?  I have produced nothing in over a year except Cyril (his son).  I have done nothing since my marriage. Perhaps I am too happy to work

Oscar went on: “Between them, Shakespeare and Balzac, they have said everything worth saying. I am a little closer to my lifelong ambition to be the first well-dressed philosopher in the history of thought

Lady Effingham was quite altered by her husband’s death.  She looked twenty years younger.  In fact her hair has turned quite gold from grief.” (Oscar Wilde)

“In married life, three’s a company, two’s a crowd.”

“I like to carry my diary when I travel; one should always have something sensational to read in the train.”

Ignorance is like an exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone.”

“Novels that end happily invariably leave one feeling depressed.”

“If one tells the truth, one is sure, sooner or later, to be found out.”

Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attractiveness of others.”

“The realization of oneself is the prime aim of life; realizing this aim through pleasure is finer than to do so through pain.”
