Hi Behnam,
I hate all season , I like only holidays in each season. This is my character and it shows that psychotically I am not in a good mood. I had enough money to buy Gold ,but my intellectual friend advised me not to buy Gold 4 months ago. Now the price of Gold is double , Imagine that if I bought 10 million Toman Gold ,at present I would have 20 million Toman in my Packet .so …so I pray God don't let the rich swallow this money, God pull it back from their throat , oh God please make misfortune all Gold traders


Your poor friend,
Mohsen

Dear Behnam,

don't worry, you don't bother me. I really like "thinking people" :-)
I am so sorry I cannot answer with the same ability.
You are right we have to try or to have something before miss it.

Today I found this "Deiderata" by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s. It was found in Old St. Paul's Church of Baltimore.
I need to share it.
It could be a good "English exercise". Difficult for me ..perfect for your good English.
Hope you enjoy it!

Max Ehrmann


Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Hi Behnam,

I don't know what to write.
I'd started learning English in the end of the last century. My English is still very poor and crowish. What could you advise me to improve my speaking and writing, for I'm not sure what a topic would be accepted on this thread?

Yours sinserely,
Andrew

Hi,

Dear Amal, Veronica, Elham, Elisa, Mohsen, Andrew, ...
Thank you for joining me in this thread. Welcome!

Having known each other for years, we should try our best to maintain our friendships. The Internet, the sites, and the thread are all as some useful tools to develop friendships. Someone may say, "We are supposed to practise English, as the title of the thread-Let's learn together!-implies". Absolutely, but the question is this: Why do we learn English?

You will all agree with me that the main reason for learining English is finding a right tool to communicate with other people in the world. Why do we communicate with other people? It is something in our blood. Human beings are social creatures. They form groups to live together. They dislike solitariness!

Someone may say, "Well, everybody has family members, relatives, school friends, etc. to be with." That's true, but we need more. Although those people who are around us in everyday life are valuable, we still are thirsty for friends. Why? The more people we get invovled with, the more peace of mind, safety and security we receive!

Different people might have diffenrt opinions about friend and friendship. For me, the world without friends is not bearable. I've learnt many useful things from my friends, and I have received a lot of positive emotions from them. I do love my friends, and owe you a lot.

Thank you for being my friends. I take a lot of pride in having you as friends.

All the best,
Behnam, 26 January, 2012

friendship* - a friendly attitude or a relationship. The word originates from some ancient language and means brothehood of skippers, who were supposed to salutate each other with cannon voley every time they meet at the open sea. [Freakypedia].

As a former seaman, melancrow likes the definition. So he salutates to all his already known and not yet friends with all the cannons from the port side.

Bang, bang!
