World Book Day

 This date commemorates the death of two universal writers: Shakespeare and Cervantes.

I have got very good quotations on books some lines below next paragraph. 

Although if you want to start your own reading adventure, I've found this interesting blog: Click here and you'll be able to choose as many titles as you want.

As an Indian proverb says,
a book, opened, it is a speaking brain;
closed, an
awaiting friend ;
forgotten, a forgiving soul;
destroyed, a crying heart.


Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own.  William Hazlitt.

Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.  Author Unknown.

Love the heart that hurts you, but never hurt the heart that loves you. Hindu proverbs.

Keep five yards from a carriage, ten yards from a horse, and a hundred yards from an elephant; but the distance one should keep from a wicked man cannot be measured.

Art for Art's sake

Imagine you work as an antique dealer. One day, you visit a museum. There's an exhibition on Klimt's paintings and you're very interested in buying one. If you could choose one of these, which would it be? Why? What does it evoke to you? Justify your answer.

Making predictions

Do you think future is written in the stars? Do the features related to your zodiac sign fit into your own personality? What about your Chinese sign? Has it foreseen any event in your life?
Read your horoscope thoroughly and write your own opinion using the first conditional and the future simple tense.


AQUARIUS (Independent, critical, inflexible and rebellious).
Something you have taken for granted may no longer be an option. Make life easier for yourself.


PISCES (Creative, emotional, kind and intuitive).
Take care with a sensitive soul or you could put your foot in it. Check arrangements you have made for the weekend.


ARIES (Active, straightforward, energetic, honest and aggressive).
Don't let the risk of failure hold you back. Just be yourself and enjoy whatever comes along.
 
TAURUS (Possessive, loyal, inflexible and strong).There is something you are dying to ask someone, why don't you try to make a phone call? Do it and it will lift a weight from your mind.


GEMINI (Intellectual, flexible, optimistic and volatile).Make a list of your best points, now do you see why someone is so fond of you? Let them back into your life before they give up.


CANCER (Perfectionist, over-sensitive, secretive and emotional). Try to see the funny side this week. Be more flexible and don't expect perfection.


LEO (Generous, caring, arrogant and self-centred).Spring cleans your mind and gets rid of the clutter. This weekend will bring a happy memory.


VIRGO (Observant, organized and shrewd). Talk to other people, they share your hopes and concerns. What you need is a bit more security.


LIBRA (Understanding, diplomatic and charming). Other people seem to have all the luck. Count your blessings. Make friendships stronger by more regular contact.


SCORPIO (Jealous, courageous, determinant and possessive).The easiest way forward is not always the best. Like chess, making the wrong can set you back.


SAGITTARIUS (Innovative, practical, optimistic and generous). More effort and your prospects will change dramatically. Give more of your time and less of your cash. Relax at the weekend.


CAPRICORN (Introvert, reserved, patient and spontaneous).Just sitting around is not an option. Get together with a friend and bring a sense of ridiculousness to get rid of an old problem.
