"Swearing great hope, the exiled risk across the globe,
and dream of riches and revenge." -- Spes Fallax -- Lucius Annaeus Seneca or pseudo-Seneca, trans Doyle --
Translated from the Latin of pseudo-Seneca, by Isabel Doyle. It seems particularly apt given the slaughter next door.
Powerful words, Isabel, and as you say very apt given the behaviour of your neighbours and even perhaps some of your commenters, though they may not be genuine bloggers.
Wise and powerful words indeed - I shall endevour to visit your fine blog more often as I do not understand Elizabeths' words above re the behaviour of some of your commenters.(It is the limits of awailable time that prevent me visiting favourite bloggers more often).Be safe and kind regardsAnna :o]
Thanks for the pointers Isabel and Elisabeth - I now understand.It is sometimes difficult via comments to articulate opposing views as cues and inferences are not visible - I always ensure that if having a difference of opinion, I do so kindly and will always add that it is not a 'troll' comment - merely an opportunity and desire to discuss.It would appear Al (amd others) has/have troll tendencies!Kind regardsAnna :o]
A warning to strike a chill into the heart of the unwary! There's nothing like sticking up for your friends...
It wasn't me, honest! Please don't beat me and please put that knife away.Marriages of the Fowles? i don't understand. (a Fowles quote, maybe?)
St Valentine's Day was believed to be the day birds chose their mates, at least in Chaucer's day. Isabel
Yes. Thank you.
