Poem of the day

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Un Plaisant
 by Charles Baudelaire

C'était l'explosion du nouvel an : chaos de boue et de neige, traversé
de mille carrosses, étincelant de joujoux et de bonbons, grouillant de
cupidités et de désespoirs, délire officiel d'une grande ville fait
pour troubler le cerveau du solitaire le plus fort.

Au milieu de ce tohu-bohu et de ce vacarme, un âne trottait vivement,
harcelé par un malotru armé d'un fouet.

Comments about poets

Dr Nicola Byrom: We have a high prevalence of mental distress among young adults. As such, it is vital that organisations work preventatively. “There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in.” Desmond Tutu

Aurora Foundation: race and gender advocate, and daughter of the late Desmond Tutu.

Sheikh Sayeed: Though wrong gratifies in the moment, good yields its gifts over a lifetime. ~ Desmond Tutu Sayeed DONGRI TO NOWHERE BY MUNAWAR

Meme ✨: The simple truth is, we all make mistakes, and we all need forgiveness. -Desmond Tutu

Kathy: Desmond Tutu once said, "To forgive is not just to be altruistic, it is the best form of self interest." And again from the wisdom of the Buddha: "How easy it is to see your brother's faults; how hard it is to face your own." Joan Gattuso The Power of Forgiveness

Rorene: International woman of mystery: This is so bloody good that I am stunned. Just as good as the church that Desmond Tutu belonged to, doing the same! We are getting rid of Apartheid in Israel just as we did in South Africa!!!

GFD: What genuinely concerns me about all of this at the risk of sounding like Desmond Tutu, is how do we begin to heal our Nation which has been riven by Russian-sponsored division over Brrrexit & the polarisation of politics due to the lurch to the Outer Limits of the Extreme Right?

Case Whitaker: Knowledge is power. - Francis Bacon

Morpeth All Saints: In art this week Yellow class have been making collages after exploring the work of the artist Francis Bacon.

gussy: one could only wonder what francis bacon would think of the entire human life being projected onto web servers, and a supposed sentient creature spewing it as its own

MadraRua: Imagine how useful Netflix would be for being a technical writer. Francis Bacon might even say such a use would be numb!

The Cultural Tutor: 12. The Essays of Sir Francis Bacon (1597) Sir Francis Bacon was the father of modern science, a rational and clear thinker decades ahead of his time. His essays offer profound and timeless wisdom. Bacon is somebody you should want to learn from.

MadraRua: phenomenology is clever when you consider Francis Bacon's thoughts on how peaceful Web Annotator can be

David Cranmer Underdown: from a Sir Francis Bacon work. Sabine died in 1919, shortly after the lab was constructed. The task of managing the Laboratory Operations was granted to his cousin, Paul Sabine. After Paul retired, the lab operations were handed to Hale Sabine and the Armour Research Foundation

Sheikh Sayeed: Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is. ~ Francis Bacon Sayeed DONGRI TO NOWHERE BY MUNAWAR
