"What'll you do when you get lonelyAnd nobody's waiting by your side?You've been running and hiding much too long.You know it's just your foolish pride.Layla , you've got me on my knees.Layla, I'm begging, darling please.Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.I tried to give you consolationWhen your old man had let you down.Like a fool, I fell in love with you,Turned my whole world upside down.Layla, you've got me on my knees.Layla, I'm begging, darling please.Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.Let's make the best of the situationBefore I finally go insane.Please don't say we'll never find a wayAnd tell me all my love's in vain.Layla, you've got me on my knees.Layla, I'm begging, darling please.Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.Layla, you've got me on my knees.Layla, I'm begging, darling please.Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

When he was eighteen, he was punished and sent to Verkhoturye Monastery.After three months in this monastery, he had a vision of the Virgin Mary, and this started his life as a mystic.Short time after this, he joined a sect called the Khlysts, that used to make many parties and orgies.

Unicorns, Symbols Of Purity
2008-01-21 21:25:00
In its origins, the Unicorn was a creature depicted as a white horse, with antelope hooves, billy-goat beard, and a horn in its forehead.But with the pass of time, fantasy artists have depicted the Unicorn as a horse with a horn in its forehead and lacking of the other elements. Some also depict the Unicorn winged.There are ancient Greek, Roman, and Macedonian stories that tell about a creature with a single horn.Some say that the origin of those stories may lay in the travels that they did into the India, and they are describing the Indian rhinoceros.Other origins of the Unicorn can be found in the viking mythology and tell about a sea creature that has a horn in its forehead and probably it's actually a cetacean called narval.But both the narval and the rhinoceros are very different from a horse with a horn in its forehead.One of the first versions about the Unicorn is the one that the Greek physician Ctesias did in 400 B.C., in one of the expeditions to India. He talks about a w...

Gnomes, Fantasy Beings Of The Inner Earth
2007-12-16 19:14:00
Gnomes are fantastic beings of small size. Their origin comes, probably, from small people that inhabited the Carpathian Mountains, and used to be miners. Thus, Gnomes are linked to mines, metals, caves and precious stones.The troops of the Roman Empire reached the Carpathian Mountains. The word "gnomes" comes from latin "gnomus".The roman sergeant Publius Octavus wrote in 470 AC :"Today I saw a tiny person with my very eyes. He wore a red hat, and a blue shirt. He had a white beard and was wearing green trousers. I talked to him several times. He said he was descendant of a race called kuwalden. He used to heal diseased animals and liked to drink milk".The Swedish Frederic Ugarph found, in the house of a Norwegian fisher, a wood statue that was 15 centimeters tall. In the pedestal, these words were marked: "Nisse Riktig Storrelse". Which is something like "Actual size of the Gnome". Ugarph was several days discussing the purchase of the figure.
