Speaking about Love

код для вставкиСкачать
Love tyrannizes all the ages;
but youthful, virgin hearts derive
a blessing from its blasts and rages,
like fields in spring when storms arrive.
А. Pushkin Evgeny Onegin
Любви все возрасты покорны;
Но юным, девственным сердцам
Ее порывы благотворны,
Как бури вешние полям
А.С. Пушкин Евгений Онегин
What is love? It is one of the most
difficult questions for the mankind. No
one can give the proper definition of
love. To some Love is friendship set on
fire for others. Maybe love is like luck.
You have to go all the way to find it.
No matter how you define it or feel it,
love is the eternal truth in the history
of mankind.
Dating is any social activity undertaken by, typically, two
people with the aim of each assessing the other's
suitability as their partner in an intimate relationship or
as a spouse. Traditional dating activities include
entertainment or a meal.
St. Valentine’s Day
February, 14 is Valentine’s Day. It is celebrated
as a lovers’ holiday, with the giving of candy,
flowers, or other gifts between couples in love.
It originated in 5th Century Rome as a tribute
to St. Valentine, a Catholic bishop.
Valentine had been beheaded by Emperor
Claudius in AD 270.
Claudius believed that married men made poor
soldiers. So he banned marriage. A kind priest
Valentine married young people secretly. But he
was discovered and condemned to death. Even
in prison Valentine showed love for everyone.
He fell in love with the blind daughter of his
jailer. His love and great faith managed to
miraculously heal from blindness. Before his
death he sent a farewell message “from your
Valentine”. The phrase has been used on
holiday ever since.
St. Valentine’s Day
Traditional symbols of Valentine's Day
include hearts, doves, Cupid and love notes
or valentines. The first true card was sent by
Charles, duke of Orleans, to his wife in 1415.
He was imprisoned in the Tower of London at
that time.
Cupid became associated with the holiday
because he was the son of Venus, the
Roman god of love and beauty. In Greek
mythology, he was known as Eros, the son
of Aphrodite

Fevronia, a young peasant woman. The prince at first

Peter and Fevronia are said to have died in the same
hour on July 8, 1228. As Peter was a monk, they were
buried separately, but their bodies were later found in
the same grave. They were canonized by the Russian
Orthodox Church in 1547. Murom, a historic city 300
km (185 miles) east of Moscow, is the center of the
festivities. The city has a long history of celebrating the
saints' day, including by the traditional exchange of
"fevronki," a local version of Valentine's Day heartshaped cards.

The expression Decembrist wife is a Russian symbol of
the devotion of a wife to her husband.
The wives and fiancés of some Decembrists came to
Siberia to share the lot of their men, overcoming the
opposition of the authorities and of their relatives, losing
their rights and possessions, and travelling thousands of
kilometers by sledge and carriage. But nothing could
stop these courageous women. They followed their
husbands. There they helped their own husbands and
other Decembrists as well to survive exile.
