To vote... on this day of European elections. Recovery of a right and duty as a French citizen among other associated rights and duties which were unfairly, illegally blocked from me by an organized criminal gang.

Justice and truth will be done in due time.

Long live France, Long live the Republic...

To be continued with the elections scheduled for June 30 and July 7 following the dissolution of the national assembly decreed by the President of the French Republic MR Macron.

A reminder : the right to vote was given to French women in 1944... some rights seem still fragile we must be careful and keep righteous fights.

MyEmpathetic & creative Leader profile - and news Empathy course at the beginning of the 2024 school

With my Profile of Empathetic & Creative Leader long mocked and blocked in French recruitment - delighted with the news courses of Empathy versus school bullying planned for the start of the 2024 school year in France:

Better late than never?

NEWS France, faced with school bullying (and not only) is finally getting into the time of empathy classes for the start of the 2024 school year. In Denmark since 1993, there are 1 hour of lessons per week for 6-16 year olds. "FRI for Mobbing" method.

 PRESS ARTICLES :

Articles de presse : https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/life/article/les-cours-d-empathie-generalises-dans-les-ecoles-en-france-a-la-rentree-2024-en-quoi-consistent-ils_223670.html

https://www.forbes.fr/management/leadership-pourquoi-la-creativite-est-essentielle-et-comment-la-cultiver/

REALITY: with an EMPATHETIC & CREATIVE LEADER profile: harassed, mocked, discredited...

I was often harassed, mocked, even falsely cruelly called "crazy", refused on certain positions where still in 2023 "managers" think that creativity is for "crazy" or "artists" (in a contemptuous sense) while FALSE because LEADERSHIP and CREATIVITY = INNOVATION and much more. It is time for France to open up its perspectives and open up prospects to innovative, differentiated profiles, that can bring about a renewal, especially a powerful and necessary entrepreneurial one.

LET'S LOOK AT SOME DEFINITIONS:

Leadership:

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leadership

Leadership or primacy is political, psychological, social, etc. influence. of an individual on a group of individuals or of a group of individuals on another group. The leader has personal skills that make a difference and allow him to be listened to and followed by a group of people.

Empathy:

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empathie

Empathy is the recognition and understanding of another individual's feelings and emotions.

In the study of interpersonal relationships, empathy is therefore different from the notions of sympathy, compassion, altruism or emotional contagion, which can be associated with it.

Creativity:

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cr%C3%A9ativit%C3%A9

Creativity is, in general, the ability of an individual to imagine and implement a new concept, a new object or to discover an original solution to a problem.

It can be more precisely defined as "a psychological or psycho-sociological process by which an individual shows imagination and originality in the way he associates things, ideas, situations and, through the publicity of things, situations, and by the publicity of things".

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cr%C3%A9ativit%C3%A9

Creativity and leadership

For contemporary American psychologist Robert Sternberg, creativity and leadership are intimately linked. On the one hand, creativity is a form of leadership, and on the other hand, one of the three components of leadership is creativity.

Creative Leadership:

Creativity is a major leadership challenge within companies.

Creative leadership is necessary for innovation and the rapid adaptation of the business to the various changes that can occur in a competitive and changing environment.

Creative leadership is therefore useful for leaders, teams, and organizations. Sylvie Labelle, aware of this fact, conducted a study on the subject.

In conclusion:

Empathy is not a weakness, it is one of our greatest assets: and for society and its future!.

Treating it as a prejudice for our organizations or our teams will ultimately lead to failure: we see this with school bullying, "gangstalking" possible at any age (which should also be condemned see my previous messages on this subject).

It's true that women generally have more empathy, but that's exactly why we need them in technology and in leadership.

History, religions, tales, myths of the World to be shared, lessons: the parable of the "Good Samaritan"

The parable features a traveler, who is attacked and left for dead by bandits.

A kohen (priest) and a Levite, both Jews, embodying the religious orthodoxy of the time, pass by him and do not bother with him, out of respect for their obligation to serve in the temple.

But a Samaritan, the representative of a population that the Jews consider to be impious, shows himself capable of compassion to the seriously wounded stranger who is not of his religion.

This Samaritan will give his time and money to save his life.

Nb in photos, a history of Art through the centuries...: stained glass window The traveller attacked by the bandits: stained glass window of the Good Samaritan in the cathedral of Chartres (thirteenth century).

Who knows, also remembers what first confronted David and King Saul, the first "divine" choice of royalty, but who, disappointing due to lack of courage and too attached to the material in particular (...) was replaced by the shepherd with the heart Vaillant David? Which will push King Saul to pursue, unjustly, and ultimately in vain because the divine choice was made in any case, despite of their friendship : the future King David...

History, religion, Women: celebration of the mystic Saint Teresa of Avila who inspired VERLAINE...

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Th%C3%A9r%C3%A8se_d%27Avila#Appendices

Teresa of Avila (in Spanish Teresa de Ávila), The influence of her writings, testimony to her mystical experience, makes her a major figure in Christian spirituality. She is recognized as a saint and doctor of the Church by the Catholic Church.

Thérèse of Avila deeply inspired Paul Verlaine in his work of conversion, and in particular for the collection Sagesse (“O my God you have wounded me with love”). She was for him the very example of “the woman of genius” (Voyage en France par un Français).

In 1951, Salvador Dalí painted his Allegory of the Soul, the full title of which is “Alegory of the Soul after Santa Teresa de Avila - the surrealist worm metamorphoses into the mistic butterfly”.

She was appointed doctor of the University of Salamanca and has held the honorary title of mayor of Alba de Tormes since 1963. In 2012, his writings were published in the Pléiade collection.

His influence on modern philosophy (notably the famous Cartesian cogito) is now better known.

She was also persecuted by men of the Church, at the time of the unfortunately famous Dominican manual Malleus Maleficarum.

2 New creative workshops by and with Vero 2023-2024: storytelling & the journey of the hero (since7)

2 New creative workshops by and with Vero 2023-2024: storytelling translate "narrative communication" & creative writing workshop on the theme The Heroine's Journey.

1) "Storytelling" workshop: narrative communication technique (see attached poster), the opportunity to use my knowledge and experience in communication; Explanations

Most of the major multinationals use it, such as Coca-Cola or The Walt Disney Company, which are ranked on Interbrand's list of the world's most powerful brands.

  • 2) The Hero's Journey: whether it's the Marvel heroes or the French Little Prince, fairy tales from the whole world (a few readings on my youtube channel verothomas1) we all have our hero-heroines and we might also imagine others in our World or another...

Poetry: roots, strengths and values beyond storms:... "The oak tree" by Johny RayRyder Jr

The Oak Tree


A mighty wind blew night and day.
It stole the Oak Tree’s leaves away.
Then snapped its boughs
and pulled its bark
until the Oak was tired and stark.
But still the Oak Tree held its ground
while other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
How can you still be standing Oak?”


The Oak Tree said, I know that you
can break each branch of mine in two,
carry every leaf away,
shake my limbs and make me sway.
But I have roots stretched in the earth,
growing stronger since my birth.
You’ll never touch them, for you see
they are the deepest part of me.
Until today, I wasn’t sure
of just how much I could endure.
But now I’ve found with thanks to you,
I’m stronger than I ever knew.

September 23, 2023: marked by Pope Francis' visit and speech in Marseille on migrants, a film to watch on the subject of migrants inspired by real events "The old oak" by Ken Loach: "Strength, solidarity, resistance" or the first stormy encounter between Syrian migrants and towners of a former mining town in disarray. Between fears and legitimate prejudices,   In the end, suffering, common poverty will bring out an unexpected solidarity where everyone will be able to express their intelligence, their needs, their goodness in active solidarity versus ... charity (sometimes so "business charity" in our current societies with "dominant-dominated"...instead of possible winner-winner...) ; and the expression then of a "possible and healthier patriotism..."

Back to school, work, hiring: reminder on the anti-discrimination law art L.1132-1 & criminal appeal

Back to school, work, hiring: reminder on the anti-discrimination law art L.1132-1 & criminal appeal

What the law provides for hiring: and possible criminal sanctions in case of discrimination:

political opinions;
trade union or mutual activities;
religious beliefs;
physical appearance;

state of health;
disability.

Therefore, none of these grounds can be used to exclude a person from a recruitment procedure (or access to an internship or training) or to sanction, dismiss or decide on a discriminatory measure against an employee.

More info: https://www.legalplace.fr/guides/criteres-discrimination-embauche/

Possible sanctions:

1) The employer who is a natural person who has committed acts of discrimination in hiring is liable to a fine of up to 45,000 euros and 3 years in prison according to DGT circular No. 2012-14 of 12 November 2012.

2) Legal persons may also be held criminally liable for acts of discrimination. The penalties are provided for in article 225-4 of the Criminal Code. The penalty can reach up to € 225,000, in addition to a possible ban on practising.

Possible remedies:

1) in civil proceedings: 3 years

2) criminal (complaint police station, gendarmerie, investigating judge TGI, Public prosecutor) delay 6 years

3) seize the Defender of Rights (...).

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89lisabeth_Vig%C3%A9e_Le_Brun

The majority of his work, 660 out of 900 paintings, is composed of portraits.

Despite the unofficial "ban" on female artists, she painted a few paintings with a mythological theme, including her painting Peace Bringing Abundance from 1780, constituting her reception room at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, which, as part of the controversy for or against its admission, had been very severely criticized by the members of the Academy for its drawing errors and its lack of idealization. In fact, she favors color over drawing, which is considered less "masculine"... She lived and painted portraits of women in particular like Queen Marie-Antoinette in Paris, Russia, England, Switzerland ... Attached is one of his self-portraits...

Attached is one of his self-portraits...and in the 2023 gallery: one of my montage photos from Christmas 2022 :) of his self-portrait on a game "Histoire de France" and Santa Claus...like coming to the rescue... of the talented especially women artists. ..? :) ..

Jeet kune do is inspired mainly by wing chun, boxing and fencing, but incorporates techniques of its own. Its founder based himself on the praying mantis of the north and south, Choy Lee Fut, the Claws of the eagle, English boxing, wrestling, fencing, judo, jiujitsu and some kicks of the styles of northern and southern China; By discovering these styles, he will evolve his traditional Wing Chun practice.

TV anecdote "Cnews"...: a journalist apparently intrigued by my sporting blessing with Bishop Marsset, approached me and questioned me. Working for CNews show "In Search of Spirit" ... He had interviewed women for cycling... obviously my profile of Women rather access martial arts-defense protection (I also played basketball and climbing younger in competition ... :) basketball and rock-climbing UNSS school and highschool teams and competitions : sport at school a MUST ! for personal development, team spirit, leadership discovery...

seeking to propose in particular via Bodykarate and my acting-fitness method defense arts more accessible to women and children: this did not seem to interest him ... Too bad...

Pour sportifs'ves en tout genre, chrétien ou non... un bel endroit plein d'inspirations...pour prier, méditer... 

"OSU"! comme on dit chez les sportifs d'arts martiaux :) et que le Meilleur(e) gagne :) ! 

- Un psaume du jour 88(89hébr.) phrase du jour "Lex per Moysen data est..."

BONUS: Idea of the day: add on the list of prophets or characters with prophetic gifts engraved in another Parisian Church (I let you guess which one... :), including David's name the one who defeated Goliath and became KING DAVID... (There are prophets and characters in other functions with a gift of prophecy...)

the name of DEBORA: rare WOMAN prophetess judge for 40 years! war counselor, wife mother... Yes already at the time a woman could have these several functions and do good to a Nation ... and thought also for the visionary, healer, diplomat of the Middle Ages: St. Hildegard of Bingen ...

Putting women back in the spotlight, at their true value... especially in the spiritual field.

Art & business, discussion: Possible acquisition CAA by Pinault: copy model WME? / &-or TinyMighties

Art & business, discussion: Possible acquisition CAA by Pinault: copy model WME? / and-or TinyMighties? :

1) Article: possible acquisition of the famous & mythical artistic agency CAA Creative Artists Agency (Steven Spielberg, Brad Pitt, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Salma Hayek...) by the French Pinault family-group: https://www.20minutes.fr/economie/4051125-20230901-famille-pinault-veut-racheter-plus-celebres-agences-stars-hollywood?xtor=RSS-176

2) This idea of Franco-American "buyout" reminds me of the "model" of WME American agency: https://www.wmeagency.com/story/ created in 1898 and especially combining nowadays various sectors making it: the global leader in sports, events, media and fashion, forming Endeavor: a "model" for the Pïnault group? for what type of Arts?

Reminder, unfortunately, of the scandal of SM plush toys for children (...) : https://www.20min.ch/fr/story/enfants-et-peluches-bdsm-balenciaga-presente-ses-excuses-et-porte-plainte-475148022131

3) In 2017: before the Weinstein case,

I had an idea to create a new type of "complementary" international artistic group-association, complementary to already existing models but more empathetic, effective, professionalized that can capitalize on the positive by avoiding the discriminations and violence known in the world and not only in this competitive environment of Arts:

"TinyMighties-LesPetitsPuissants": international association for personal development and artistic leadership; intergenerational and intercultural.

A few lines of the concept of then: WHO: 7 professionals and or art enthusiasts create this international association around 5 pillar disciplines: arts, education, sports, well-being, philosophy and / or spirituality

To WHOM: any public and already to artists or people wishing to develop an art and their
Leadership of any art or age to healthy and positive leaders and environments 

WHY: in a globally competitive and leadership international environment often aggressive sometimes destructive, propose new leaderships that are both powerful and positive in particular in the arts :

(...)

(...) At the time some found this project "too ambitious" "utopian"...: because I am a woman and not a billionaire (;) yet ? ... However, I had started recruiting, and already artistic professionals had wanted to believe in it while measuring the extent of this "revolutionary" idea;)by a French woman US nicknamed "Tiny-Mighty"...

1) Art-History-Politics-Versailles & a possible "ART of PEACE"... :
Versailles, French cultural, artistic and historical heritage is being renovated.
Example of the ceilings of the Palace of Versailles with... "The Salon of Peace" ... the Peace that our World badly needs...
Let's look at the ceilings of the Palace of Versailles with the Peace Room...
For the painted decor, Louis XIV once again called on the genius of Charles Le Brun. The aim was to immortalise the benefits of peace in the cupola, as a counterpoint to the military victories illustrated in the Hall of Mirrors.
At the centre of the dome is a depiction of "Victorious France offering an olive branch to the Powers that had united against her". France is seen seated on a chariot harnessed to turtledoves (symbols of the princely marriages with Bavaria and Spain).
The arches represent the powers that are now allies: Germany, Spain and Holland. Europe is also depicted as victorious over the Turks.

History lesson : August 25th 1944 : Liberation of Paris after 4 years of occupation & Fête St Louis
History lesson : August 25th 1944 : Liberation of Paris after 4 years of occupation...

The liberation of Paris during World War II took place from August 19 to 25, 1944, marking the end of the Battle of Paris. This episode takes place in the context of the Liberation and puts an end to four years of occupation of the French capital.

Let us know as best as possible to learn a lesson from History, to remember the high price, the sacrifices, the blood shed for our Freedoms and to give thanks and gratitude to the Allies...ALL OF THEM : 

The BBC made public in 2009 a request from the Americans, at a time when racial segregation existed in the United States, for the French and English battalions marching during the liberation to be of "exclusively white" composition (white only) while two thirds French troops were made up of soldiers from the colonies. If all the black soldiers were replaced during the "laundering" of the Leclerc division during its formation in the summer of 1943, on the other hand, approximately 1,300 North African soldiers (i.e. nearly 10% of the workforce) were present in the division during of the liberation of Paris.

NOTA BENE USA: 2009 : Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States, in function from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017 the first mixed-race man with African origins to become President of the United States. His career aroused great interest among voters and the media around the world. His presidency comes in a context of war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan, crisis in the Middle East, major recession of the American economy and global financial and economic crisis. He is the recipient of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

History and Religion Lesson: Feast Mary Queen Mother & Novena since Greco-Roman times:

History and Religion Lesson: Feast Mary Queen Mother & Novena since Greco-Roman times : 

In the Catholic calendar is this day the Feast of Mary Queen Mother www.mariereine.com

These occasions and symbolic dates of calendar are often associated with what are called "novenas" of the number 9 ... 9 days of prayers in order, here within the framework of the Catholic religion, to obtain specific graces.

Historiquement, Neuvaine — Wikipédia (wikipedia.org)

Greco-Roman origins:
We find among the ancient Romans an official nine-day religious celebration whose origin Livy reports.3 After stones fell from heaven on Mount Albain, an official sacrifice of nine days was made to appease the gods and avoid evil, whether following a warning from above or on the advice of the augurs. From that moment on, the same novena of sacrifices was made whenever a prodigy of the same kind was announced. In addition to this custom, there was also among the Greeks and Romans that of observing a nine-day mourning, with a special ceremony on the ninth day, after death or burial. All this, however, was rather a matter for private or family matters. The Romans also celebrated their parentalia novendialia, an annual novena (February 13-22) to commemorate all deceased family members. The celebration ended on the ninth day with a sacrifice and a joyful banquet. A reference to this custom can be found in the laws of Emperor Justinian, where creditors are forbidden to disturb the heirs of their debtor for nine days after his death.

To follow, to meditate, to complete according to and in the respect of the beliefs of each one.

3 White Feathers 1 The "Smile Virgin & child" statue this week : History, cultures, symbolisms

3 beautiful white feathers found on my way this week: 2 on the same day and another on this beautiful sunny Sunday.

Let's see according to cultures, beliefs and biblical scriptures what white feathers have or can symbolize.

1) in general: White is known worldwide as the symbol of purity and innocence. Finding a feather of this color indicates a blessing from the Divine and sends a message of love and inner peace.

2) in various cultures, shamanic among others: White feathers generally represent purity, innocence and inner peace. They are considered a sign of unconditional love from the divine and encourage people to find their own path to emotional healing. Also, they can be interpreted as a reminder to stay connected to the spiritual world in order to find your inner strength

3) in the Bible: The spiritual significance of feathers in the Bible is rich and varied. They are often used to symbolize love, forgiveness, protection and even redemption. In the Holy Scriptures, they can also be a source of blessing or a sign of misfortune. Whether in the Old Testament or the New Testament, feathers are associated with several important events and divine representations.

In the Old Testament, we see that God gives Noah a white feather as a sign of his divine grace after surviving the flood. The Israelites were also given white feathers to remember the covenant between them and God on Mount Sinai. As a rule, the presence of this color reminds the Hebrews that they must always respect the divine commandments in order to obtain His favor and His unconditional love.

In the New Testament, the feather symbolized Jesus' role as Savior of the world. He is the one who protects us against all moral or spiritual evil. He is the one who gave us perfect moral principles and who opened the way for us.

It's up to everyone to see according to their culture, their beliefs ... in any case it's always at least and quite simply very nice to find pretty white feathers on their way here or there :).

Once a feather, always a feather? ;) and the Writing Pen?...

Sunday news on August 6, 2023: commemoration, transfiguration, story of hope and loyalty...:
Once is not customary on this Sunday...3 "additional" News...: an international historical commemoration which should serve as a "lesson" Hiroshima, the nuclear weapon 78 years later (...), the "transfiguration" among Christians, a story of hope & loyalty for anybody especially "the black sheeps or scapegoats"...


1) Commemoration: https://www.cnews.fr/monde/2023-08-06/japon-en-pleine-commemorations-du-bombardement-de-hiroshima-le-prime-Minister
78 years ago it was Hiroshima, the nuclear weapon and, from what we "know" 140,000 dead... 1 min at least of silence today for this commemoration which should make you think...


2) The Feast of the "Transfiguration" (means "transformation"(...) see post of August 5:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transfiguration_(christianity)


3) A story of hope: despite the lack of loyalty, low blows... move on! :

One day, a student placed a piece of paper on his classmate's back with the word "stupid," and asked the rest of the class not to let it show. All remained silent while laughing at each other. During math class, the teacher put a problem on the board. Only a boy managed to find the solution. 

Despite the laughter surrounding him, he walked over to the board and solved the problem without understanding why everyone was laughing. 

The teacher took out the sheet, showed it to the boy and said: "Apparently you don't know that one of your 'classmates' stuck this on your back." Know, my boy, that throughout your life people will label you. Most of them will simply be aimed at hindering your progress.  If you had known about that mocking word stuck on your back, you probably wouldn't have gotten up to solve this problem and show off your knowledge.

What you did today is exactly what you should keep doing: ignore the labels people will try to put on you and take every opportunity to learn and improve.

Turning to the other students, the teacher added: "Obviously you don't have any loyal friends in this class, otherwise I guess he would have warned you And yes, loyalty is not given to everyone??

Move on regardless of what other people think of you.

The eagle never flees the storm, it uses it to gain height!

History, Religion, culture, arts & customs : "the Transfiguration":

History, Religion, customs : today let's talk about "the Transfiguration": 

The word “transfiguration” in French comes from the Latin translation of the Greek word metamorphosis (metamorphosis). 

The religious feast of the Transfiguration is celebrated on August 6 in the Roman Catholic and Orthodox liturgical calendars. Many Protestant churches celebrate it on the last Sunday of Epiphany. The Transfiguration is an episode in the life of Jesus Christ recounted by the New Testament, in which Jesus changes his bodily appearance for a few moments of his earthly life, to reveal his divine nature to three disciples.

"He was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with him." (...)

Fables and lessons: the two beetles:

Fables and lessons: the two beetles :

A bull had an islet for grazing, and two cockchafers lived there on his dung. When winter came, one told the other that he intended to fly to the mainland: thus his companion, left alone, would have enough to eat, while he himself would winter in the distance. He added that if he found plenty of food there, he would bring it back. He therefore crossed over to the mainland, where he found dung as numerous as they were fresh, and settled there to feed on it. Last winter he returned to the island. Seeing him so fat and so healthy, his companion reproached him for not having brought him anything despite his promise. "It's not me who should be blamed", he replied, "but the nature of the place: this region feeds well, but does not bring in anything!".

This fable would suit anyone who limits himself to "delighting" his friends, without rendering them any other service.

Fable and lesson: the man bitten by a dog 

Bitten by a dog, a man was looking everywhere for someone to cure him. An onlooker advised him to quench the blood with bread, then throw it at the dog that had bitten him. "But if I do that, I won't cut it," objected the injured man: "all the dogs in town are going to bite me in turn!"

Fable and lesson: the boar and the fox :

A boar was sharpening his tusks at the foot of a tree.

A fox asked him why he sharpened them like this, when neither hunter nor danger threatened.

"It's not a waste of time", answered the boar: "in case of danger,

I will not have time to sharpen them,

but then I will find them ready for use."

The fable teaches that one must take precautions before the hour of danger.

"Queens and others Combative Women of France" for Better Justice and Rights

"Queens and others Combative Women of France" :  a new photo gallery dedicated to all these different Women Queens or Revolutionaries, Resistants, expatriates... who loved France so much and fought for it and more Justice and Freedoms.

From Queen Clothilde Wife of King Clovis to resistance fighters in the Pantheon like Simone Veil, Josephine Baker (...) they have all fought and done their best to use their powers, talents, with their Love for France and JUSTICE, helped to more true sharing, more just laws more adapted to the times, for a Better Society, A Better France...

A photo gallery in progress is dedicated to them. To be continued.

In the respect of the beliefs of each one, one can also love and do the best for his country (or country that opens its arms to you for example of Josephine Baker) "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity": Faith, beliefs, spiritualities are not opposed to citizenship on the contrary, in the respect of each other, they are truly complementary, inspiring and helpful.

The example of a SERVANT who became a QUEEN of France and did her best to eradicate slavery : QUEEN BATHILDE : 

In addition to his policy of maintaining concord between the three kingdoms (Austrasia, Neustria, Burgundy), Marc Lefrançois, in his book Histoires insolites des Rois et Reines de France, retains from his reign his avant-garde struggle against slavery :

"Older than her husband, she has a great influence on the king, pushing him to rule the kingdom with an iron fist. Under the advice of Saint Eloi, and most certainly marked by her childhood, she will do everything for the definitive prohibition of slave markets on her lands, causing the disappearance of slavery in the Frankish kingdoms. »

Fable of Jean De Lafontaine : "The hare and the tortoise" : There is no point running ; you have to leave on time..

The Hare and the Tortoise bear witness to this. Let's bet, says this one, that you will not reach As soon as me this goal. - So early ? Are you wise? Departed the light animal. Gossip, you need to purge With four seeds of hellebore. “Wise or not, I bet again. Thus was it done: and of both We put the stakes close to the goal: Knowing what, that's none of the business, Nor which judge was agreed. Our Hare had only four steps to take; I hear of those he does when ready to be reached He distances himself from the dogs, sends them back to Calendes, And makes them roam the moors. Having, I say, time to graze, To sleep, and to listen Where does the wind come from, it leaves the Turtle Go his Senator train. She leaves, she strives; She hurries slowly. He, however, despises such a victory, Hold the wager to little glory, Thinks it's about his honor To leave late. He grazes, he rests, He enjoys anything else Only at the wager. In the end when he lives That the other was almost at the end of his career, He took off like a dash; but the outbursts he made Were in vain: the Tortoise arrived first. Well ! she cried, wasn't I right?

What do you use your speed for? Me, win! and what would it be If you carried a house?

Lesson to meditate : There is no point running ; you have to leave on time...

Fable and lesson of the day : THE WOLF AND THE HERON

Fable and lesson to meditate : "THE WOLF AND THE HERON" :

A wolf, having swallowed a bone, went everywhere looking for someone to rid him of his illness. He met a heron, and asked him for a fee to remove the bone. Then the heron lowered its head down the wolf's throat, pulled out the bone, and then demanded the agreed wage. " Hey ! Friend, replied the wolf, isn't it enough for you to have pulled your head safe and sound out of the wolf's mouth, and do you still need a salary? »

This fable shows that the greatest "service" that can be expected from the recognition of the wicked is that to ingratitude they do not add injustice. (or maybe letting the wolf(ves) dealing with its(their)"ache(s)"...)

Fable and lesson : the peasant & the eagle " the good you will do will come back to you"

Fable and lesson : the peasant & the eagle " the good you will do will come back to you" : 

A ploughman (or peasant), having found an eagle caught in the net, was so struck by its beauty that he delivered it and gave it freedom. The eagle was not ungrateful to his benefactor; but seeing him sitting at the foot of a wall that threatened ruin, he flew towards him and removed in his claws the blindfold that girded his head. The man got up and went after him. 

The eagle dropped the blindfold. The ploughman picked him up, and retracing his steps, he found the wall collapsed where he had sat, and was well astonished to be thus paid back.

Lesson proposed : "It is necessary to render the services which one has received ; for the good which you will do will be rendered to you".
