Motto:"Existence itself, as light’s sleep, offers evidence of its own discontinuity, that is, of time. In this respect one can consider existence as a quanta of time."
"Insăşi existenţa, ca somn al luminii, face evidentă discontinuitatea acesteia şi deci a timpului. In acest sens putem să socotim existenţa ca pe o cuantă de timp."
Din eseul: "Timpul ca lumină" din volumul "Amintiri din prezent". 1985, Nichita Stănescu/
The essay "Time as light" from the volume "Amintiri din prezent". 1985; Nichita Stănescu
December was a good month, though... there was no snow, no white Christmas,... but lots of lights all over... and I had some very nice time at the theater... A lovely play: "Carousel" directed by A. Serban from Ferenc Molnár's 1909 play Liliom.
- Some New Year's Resolutions?!?...
- What about a new resolution?... Last year, I thought at the meaning of the word: trust. "In the social sciences, the subtleties of trust are a subject of ongoing research. In sociology and psychology the degree to which one party trusts another is a measure of belief in the honesty, fairness, or benevolence of another party. The term "confidence" is more appropriate for a belief in the competence of the other party. A failure in trust may be forgiven more easily if it is interpreted as a failure of competence rather than a lack of benevolence or honesty. In economics, trust is often conceptualized as reliability in transactions. In all cases trust is a heuristic decision rule, allowing the human to deal with complexities that would require unrealistic effort in rational reasoning." I still believe that's a very good resolution to keep on... So, perhaps, this year, I should keep it and add some courage or bravery.
So, I'm saying to myself: "Be Brave"... "Here I am!"
- Ce zici de o nouă rezoluție? ... Anul trecut m-am gândit la sensul cuvântului: încredere. "În științele sociale, subtilitățile de încredere sunt un subiect al cercetărilor în curs. În sociologie și psihologie gradul în care o parte crede în alta este o măsură de credință în onestitatea, corectitudinea sau bunăvoința unei alte părți. "este mai adecvat pentru o credință în competența celeilalte părți.Un eșec în încredere poate fi iertat mai ușor dacă este interpretat mai degrabă ca un eșec de competență decât o lipsă de bunăvoință sau onestitate În economie, încrederea este adesea conceptualizată ca în toate cazurile, încrederea este o regulă euristică de decizie, permițând oamenilor să se ocupe de complexități care ar necesita un efort nerealist în raționamentul rațional ". Cred încă că este o rezoluție foarte bună pentru a continua ... Deci, poate, anul acesta, ar trebui să o țin și să adaug un curaj sau curaj. Deci, îmi spun: "Fii curajos" ... "Iată-mă!"
To all of you,
Happy New Year! An Nou Fericit!

About Courage* (emotion)
* click to read more info on Wikipedia"Courage* (also called bravery or valour) is the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Physical courage is bravery in the face of physical pain, hardship, death or threat of death, while moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal, discouragement, or personal loss.
The classical virtue of fortitude (andreia, fortitudo) is also translated "courage", but includes the aspects of perseverance and patience.
In the Western tradition, notable thoughts on courage have come from philosophers, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, and Kierkegaard; in the Eastern tradition, some thoughts on courage were offered by the Tao Te Ching. More recently, courage has been explored by the discipline of psychology."
excerpts: "Ancient Greece"
The early Greek philosopher Plato (c. 428–348 BCE) set the groundwork for how courage would be viewed to future philosophers(... ) Plato further explains this perseverance as being able to persevere through all emotions, like suffering, pleasure, and fear."
"In the Roman Empire, courage formed part of the universal virtue of virtus. Roman philosopher and statesman Cicero (106–43 BCE) lists the cardinal virtues does not name them such:
Virtue may be defined as a habit of mind (animi) in harmony with reason and the order of nature. It has four parts: wisdom (prudentiam), justice, courage, temperance. (De Inventione, II, LIII)".*

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays."**
**By Ralph Waldo Emerson in "Collected Poems and Translations".
