#Money has no utility to me beyond a certain point. 



#Being flooded with information doesn't mean we have the right information or that we're in touch with the right people. 



#When you revolutionize education, you're taking the very mechanism of how people be smarter and do new things, and you're priming the pump for so many incredible things. 



#I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot. 



#It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.

The story behind San Valentino...




Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.


Several martyrdom stories associated with the various Valentines that were connected to February 14 were added to later martyrologies,including a popular hagiographical account of Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius, and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.

The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). In Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart", as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady). Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Saint Valentine's Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church Many parts of the Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrate Saint Valentine's Day, albeit on July 6 and July 30, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna .
While the European folk traditions connected with Saint Valentine and St. Valentine's Day have become marginalized by the modern Anglo-American customs connecting the day with romantic love, there are some remaining associations connecting the saint with the advent of spring.


While the custom of sending cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts originated in the UK, Valentine's Day still remains connected with various regional customs in England. In Norfolk, a character called 'Jack' Valentine knocks on the rear door of houses leaving sweets and presents for children. Although he was leaving treats, many children were scared of this mystical person.


In Slovenia, Saint Valentine or Zdravko was one of the saints of spring, the saint of good health and the patron of beekeepers and pilgrims. A proverb says that "Saint Valentine brings the keys of roots". Plants and flowers start to grow on this day. It has been celebrated as the day when the first work in the vineyards and in the fields commences. It is also said that birds propose to each other or marry on that day. Valentine's Day has only recently been celebrated as the day of love. The day of love was traditionally March 12, the Saint Gregory's day, or February 22, Saint Vincent's Day. The patron of love was Saint Anthony, whose day has been celebrated on June 13.

#Amazing Coco Chanel Quotes About Men, Women, Fashion and Life...



Coco Channel, proprietress of The House of Chanel; the most famous fashion name of the 20th century and the epitome of luxury and style. 

#A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. 

#The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

#Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. 

#There are people who have money and people who are rich. 

#Fashion fades, only style remains the same. 

#In order to be irreplaceable one , must always be different. 

#Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. 

#Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable. 

#Elegance is refusal. 

#Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions. 

#Great loves too must be endured. 

#Jump out the window if you are the object of passion. Flee it if you feel it. Passion goes, boredom remains.

#Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity. 

#Fashion is made to become unfashionable. 

#There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time! 

#You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.

#Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!

#I wanted to give a woman comfortable clothes that would flow with her body. A woman is closest to being naked when she is well-dressed.

#Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous. 

#Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress. 

#As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!

#I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.

#Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.

#Since everything is in our heads, we had better not lose them. 

#Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants. 

#Fashion changes, but style endures.

#I don't do fashion, I am fashion.

#The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.

#A woman has the age she deserves.

#A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future. 

#It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me unless he’s terribly strong. And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him. … I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person. I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice.

#Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.

#Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.

#A woman can be over dressed but never over elegant.

What is true love? This is the definition of famous people about true love ..........



-Life is a game and true love is a trophy. Rufus Wainwright



-Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love. Billy Graham

-True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be denied where it does. Torquato Tasso

-True love stories never have endings. Richard Bach



-True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding. Ellen G. White



-True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen. Francois de La Rochefoucauld

-I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.  Pablo Neruda


-So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.               Paulo Coehlo


-Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it.    Nicholas Sparks


-Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it's like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn't exist at all. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there's a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible.     Bob Marley                                                   


-Genuine and true love is so rare that when you encounter it in any form, it's a wonderful thing, to be utterly cherished in whatever form it takes.            Gwendoline Christie



-We don't believe in rheumatism and true love until after the first attack.      Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach



-I love my husband very much. I knew it was real true love because I felt like I could be myself around that person. Your true, true innermost authentic self, the stuff you don't let anyone else see, if you can be that way with that person, I think that that's real love. Idina Menzel




-True love lasts forever.  Joseph B. Wirthlin
