L'optimisme, ce n'est pas le refus de voir ce qui ne va pas, c'est le désir de ne pas s'y attarder. // Donne moi le courage de changer les choses que je peux changer, la sérénité d'accepter celles que je ne peux pas changer, et la sagesse de distinguer entre les deux. (Marc Aurèle) // Don't raise your voice; improve your argument. (Desmond Tutu) // Be the change you want to see in the world. (Gandhi)


A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes;
a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs;
an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them.

La langue est la meilleure et la pire des choses
   (Esope) #quote

L’iphone est la meilleure et la pire des choses (..)

"L’anecdote des langues d’Ésope, célèbre fabuliste Grec"
On raconte que son maître Xanthos, lui ayant donné l’ordre d’acheter au marché ce qu’il y aurait de meilleur, Ésope n’acheta que des langues sous prétexte qu’il n’y a rien de meilleur que la langue, lien de la vie civile, clef des sciences, organe de la vérité et de la raison, de la prière etc.

Pour l’embarrasser, Xanthos lui commanda le lendemain d’acheter ce qu’il y a de pire. Le lendemain, Ésope ne fit servir que des langues, disant que la pire chose qui soit au monde c’est la langue, mère de toutes les disputes, source des divisions et desguerres, organe de l’erreur et de la calomnie, du blasphème et de l’impiété.

Poème à mon frère blanc

Cher frère blanc,
Quand je suis né, j'étais noir,
Quand j'ai grandi, j'étais noir,
Quand je suis au soleil, je suis noir,
Quand je suis malade, je suis noir,
Quand je mourrai, je serai noir.
Tandis que toi, homme blanc,
Quand tu es né, tu étais rose,
Quand tu as grandi, tu étais blanc,
Quand tu vas au soleil, tu es rouge,
Quand tu as froid, tu es bleu,
Quand tu as peur, tu es vert,
Quand tu es malade, tu es jaune,
Quand tu mourras, tu seras gris.
Alors, de nous deux,
Qui est l'homme de couleur ?

(Léopold Sedar Senghor)

President Barack Obama was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upstate New York

He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American's present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor of the Senate.
Although President Obama was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his "red sisters and brothers."
At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, "Walking Eagle."
The proud President Obama accepted the plaque and then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.
A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President.
They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.

Thanks Red. H !
You can (must) change Barack Obame by any name ! :)
