...and god created woman...

"...woman is pure in her chromosome make up and man impure. Or, if you like, half a woman. It reminds us of Chesterton´s epigram, "Men are men, but man is a woman". This could be read, "Wome are women, but man is half woman" from the point of chromosomes.
But this is merely intellectual frivolity of no importance..."
p. 38 The physical basis of personality, V.H. Mottram


...and god created woman...and then from her chromosomes created...man...

"Citadel"

"...Some people are so used to solitude with themselves that they never compare themselves to others but spin forth their monologue of a life in a calm, joyous mood, holding good conversations with themselves, even laughing....How seldom do we now meet a person who can keep living so peacefully and cheerfully with himself even amidst the turmoil, saying to himself like Goethe: "The best is the deep quiet in which I live and grow ... and harvest what they cannot take from me by fire or sword...."'                                                             
                                                                   Friedrich Nietzsche - Man alone with himself


"A hermit is a person who lives in seclusion from society." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermit

"...In 1571, he retired from public life to the Tower of the Château, his so-called "citadel", in the Dordogne, where he almost totally isolated himself from every social and family affair.... as he entered this almost ten-year period of self-imposed reclusion, he had the following inscription crown the bookshelves of his working chamber:
In the year of Christ 1571, at the age of thirty-eight, on the last day of February, his birthday, Michael de Montaigne, long weary of the servitude of the court and of public employments, while still entire, retired to the bosom of the learned virgins, where in calm and freedom from all cares he will spend what little remains of his life, now more than half run out. If the fates permit, he will complete this abode, this sweet ancestral retreat; and he has consecrated it to his freedom, tranquility, and leisure..."  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_de_Montaigne
"It had been happy for me if I could have lived a private life in peace and plenty, enjoying all the happiness that results from a well-tempered society founded on mutual esteem. But the injury done my country, and the chains of slavery forging for all posterity, calls me forth to defend our common rights, and repel the bold invaders of the sons of freedom." Nathanael Greene

The order..."MOTHER OF SOULS"

To the Carmel of Moncorvo - Portugal, I will apologize myself with the same words of Thérèse of Lisieux:

"To be betrothed to you, Jesus, to be a Carmelite, to become, through my union with you, a mother of souls — surely that ought to be enough for anybody? But somehow, not for me. I seem to have so many other vocations as well! I feel as if I were called to be a fighter..."


 
 "If you only knew what darkness I am plunged into."
Thérèse of Lisieux

What I really am...

“Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are."
Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince
 

"I may be a woman...but if I choose I have the heart of a man! I am my father's daughter. I am not afraid of anything....!"
Elizabeth, The Virgin Queen

The mission...

"I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married....As a result of her aversion to matrimony, she began to be called the "Virgin Queen." " 
Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen
 
...I am always being told by my friends to find someone...well because the men I want are already dead, the mission was difficult but not impossible and after searching, like a miracle I found him in the cathedral of Gloucester and so today I can also say like others that I am now living with a BEAR and for him not to feel that he had to give up a lot to come here, I got a bush also...

Monologue of a life...

"...Não vou viver, como alguém que só espera um novo amor
Há outras coisas no caminho onde eu vou
As vezes ando só, trocando passos com a solidão
Momentos que são meus, e que não abro mão
Já sei olhar o rio por onde a vida passa
Sem me precipitar, e nem perder a hora
Escuto no silêncio que há em mim e basta
Outro tempo começou pra mim agora..."
 Pra rua me levar, Ana Carolina
 
"...Life consists of rare, isolated moments of the greatest significance, and of innumerably many intervals, during which at best the silhouettes of those moments hover about us... For many men do not have those moments at all, and are themselves intervals and intermissions in the symphony of real life....  
 
...Some people are so used to solitude with themselves that they never compare themselves to others but spin forth their monologue of a life in a calm, joyous mood, holding good conversations with themselves, even laughing....How seldom do we now meet a person who can keep living so peacefully and cheerfully with himself even amidst the turmoil, saying to himself like Goethe: "The best is the deep quiet in which I live and grow ... and harvest what they cannot take from me by fire or sword...."'
