  1. This blog post is very thought-provoking. It’s like art. I’ve been thinking about it for awhile, and it relates to my current problems in many ways. I can’t decide, though, if I’m choosing to look at it that way, or if I’ve just decided not to choose to look at it any other way.

    Very interesting.

    • Yes. Very provoking. I have a long list of this. Like: arrogance vs. true confidence, pro-active vs. multitasking, performance vs. expectation, hunger vs. appetite, and so on. You are right, provoking.🙂 Great Love to you!

  2. Thanks. I was little confused about the difference between them.

    One more question, which one is correct:

    this thing is different than that..
    this thing is different from that..

    This always confuses me. If you know which of them is correct, please let me know.

    Your blog has so many interesting posts, really. But you know my English is really bad, though I’m working hard to improve my English. So, I failed to understand the meaning of most posts in your blog.

    • Hi Aminul! Thanks for counting on me, but sadly I don’t know that much of english either. I know, it is funny, how can I dare to have a blog without even knowing too much. The answer is that beyond the borders of english is a burden to learn and share about love. In time I would learn better, In time you would! My guess is that number 1 is correct but, thank God there is couple of web pages you can find that better. Blessings for you! We would learn, we would!!
      ~Great Love to you,
