Quote of the day: A great artist is always before his time or behind it. by George Edward Moore

Bardaisan

Bardaisan

Birthday of the day: Bardaisan; Bardaisan (Syriac: ܒܪܕܝܨܢ, Bardaiṣān; 154–222; also Latinized as Bardesanes) was a Syriac gnostic, founder of the Bardaisanites, and an scientist, scholar, astrologer, philosopher and poet, also renowned for his knowledge of India, on which he wrote a book, now lost.

Joke of the day: The man charged into the jewelry shop, slammed his fists angrily on the showcase, removed a wristwatch from his pocket and shook it under the nose of the owner. “You said this watch would last me a lifetime,” he yelled. “Yeah,” admitted the owner. “But you looked pretty sick the day you bought it.”

Thought of the day: The words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels.
