Marriage was God's idea. He decided that man and woman should be "one flesh". Furthermore, the Bible says "God is love ". Unfortunately, many couples never learned to love each other. A feeling, passion or some other influence brought them together, but they never learned how to study or explore each other, or discover what makes them happy. When you do not know another person it is impossible to love them because you do not know what pleases or annoys them, their dreams and struggles, or how they think. In such ignorance, you will make many mistakes in your relationship and so cause many problems. These problems will cause you to withdraw, even though you are married and were in love at one time. If you have been wondering: Do I still love my husband/wife Did I marry the wrong person Why is my partner so cold to me Why do we love each other but can’t stay together? How can I make sure my marriage lasts? How can I live with a person who is so difficult? Why do our problems go away, but then come back worse than before? Is my marriage always going to be about hardships, or will I find happiness one day? Cheer up! You will learn how to love intelligently and how to be happy with your spouse, even if he (or she) acts like King Kong.

Nostradamus iniziò la stesura delle oscure quartine nella notte del Venerdì Santo 1554, pubblicando il testo definitivo delle profezie nel 1555. Le dieci centurie che compongono il lavoro dell'anziano Veggente nel corso dei secoli sono diventate un punto di riferimento per tutti gli studiosi di esoterismo, dato che tra le quartine si celerebbe il destino dell'umanità. Scritte con un linguaggio volutamente contorto e ricco di simbolismi esoterici, le profezie hanno predetto infatti con sorprendente precisione molti degli avvenimenti che hanno scosso l'umanità negli ultimi 5 secoli: dalla Rivoluzione Francese all'attacco alle Torri Gemelle del 2001, dall'avvento di Napoleone a quello del Terzo Reich di Adolf Hitler. Molti iniziati inoltre hanno interpretato alcuni passaggi delle profezie come un preciso riferimento ad una presunta apocalisse mondiale per il 2012, ma di fronte ad un testo di un tale livello di complessità è sempre molto difficile dare interpretazioni certe. Questa nuova edizione delle profezie di Nostradamus è introdotta da un saggio di Esther Neumann in cui viene approfondito l'aspetto escatologico delle quartine in relazione al 2012.

This work is a complete English translation of the Latin Etymologies of Isidore, Bishop of Seville (c.560-636). Isidore compiled the work between c.615 and the early 630s and it takes the form of an encyclopedia, arranged by subject matter. It contains much lore of the late classical world beginning with the Seven Liberal Arts, including Rhetoric, and touches on thousands of topics ranging from the names of God, the terminology of the Law, the technologies of fabrics, ships and agriculture to the names of cities and rivers, the theatrical arts, and cooking utensils. Isidore provides etymologies for most of the terms he explains, finding in the causes of words the underlying key to their meaning. This book offers a highly readable translation of the twenty books of the Etymologies, one of the most widely known texts for a thousand years from Isidore's time.

The essays in Border Dialogues embark on journeys into some of the most challenging territories of contemporary culture, philosophy and criticism. They intervene in the debate on modernism and postmodernism through critical encounters with a diverse range of theoretical and cultural topics. By exploring the interstitial zones where traditional disciplines and discourses overlap, Chambers seeks to widen some of the terms of contemporary critical thought. The common goal of the essays in Border Dialogues is a reading of postmodernity in which the different voices and vocabularies in comtemporary theory come together in an increasingly shared network.

THE Encyclical of our Holy Father, Pius XI., on the Institution of the Feast of Christ Our King is a fitting crown to the devotion and the vast spiritual awakening which marked the Holy Year, 1925. In fulfilment of the commission of Our Lord to St. Peter, and aided by the light and grace that are given to every man according to his need, the Vicar of Christ addresses words of timely guidance and help to the Catholic world. We need that guidance today. In their greed for wealth, the senseless hurry of business, and the rush for pleasure men forget, then reject, Divine things. Our superficial education, the shallow science and the sensationalism of the newspapers bewilder men's minds. They cannot think steadily and soundly; they are "tossed about by every wind of doctrine." They lose Christ - not from rebellion, but from indifference. Man-made religions and scientific theories come and go like the leaves from spring to winter, and as they pass they leave men more and more confused. Outside the Catholic Church, there is no centre of spiritual authority, no institution that can claim to possess that body of truths which was the legacy of Christ to His Apostles, to be guarded by them for men through all time. There is no other infallible teacher. Man's life must be reasonable, founded on true philosophy. For very many of those who do not recognise the Divine claims of Christ there is a philosophy of life - but it is a destructive philosophy. Its authority is unstable and uncertain, that of a learning which imposes itself on the less learned. It changes as new theories are born, but always leaves greater uncertainty, as it saps the foundations of faith and drives men to religious indifference or to scepticism. Truth is put farther and farther away. Religion, then, and philosophy for such men come to be no more than a collection of words, of hazy definitions, of vague counsels of morality, with no firm foundation. Consequently, the law of sacrifice and the Christian moral code, so clearly stated in the teaching of Our Lord, are rejected, and men accept gladly those theories of conduct only which demand no moral effort and impose no burden of sacrifice. The God of the new philosophies is not real: He is not personal; He does not command. Christ for them is not the Divine Christ, who knew Himself to be God, who loved men, and lived and taught in Galilee with an authority which He claimed as Divine; who confirmed the Divine law and made laws as His own; whose praise and blame are for eternity; whose Kingdom we must enter by the way which He has appointed, through faith, baptism, sacrifice and good works.
