“The Black Mamba collection of watches is me: It is my alter ego,  so  to  speak. As  I  mentioned before,  it  is  sharp,  cutting  edge  and  sleek  which are  characteristics  I  try  to  apply  when  I’m  out there  on  the  basketball  court.”

~ Kobe Bryant

There are those who would draw a sharp line between power politics and a principled foreign policy based on values. This polarized view – you are either a realist or devoted to norms and values – may be just fine in academic debate, but it is a disaster for American foreign policy. American values are universal.”

~ Condoleezza Rice

“All  through  Latin  America,  there’s  sharp condemnation  of  the  criminal  atrocities  of September  11.  But  it’s  qualified  by  the  observation that  although   these   are   horrible  atrocities,   they  are   not   unfamiliar.”

~ Noam Chomsky

“Sometimes, wearing a scarf and a polo coat and no makeup and with a certain attitude of walking, I go shopping or just look at people living. But then, you know, there will be a few teenagers who are kind of sharp, and they’ll say, ‘Hey, just a minute. You know who I think that is?’ And they’ll start tailing me. And I don’t mind.”

~ Marilyn Monroe

“It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person. So violence isn’t merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper.”

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

“I have been into bodies and fitness, so I am very critical about how a body should look in terms of flaunting it. I would never fall down and roll and do a cleavage shot – I have seen those in Bollywood films, and those are things I cannot tolerate. I wouldn’t do that. That’s not me – I’d rather look sharp and sexy and stylish just doing a walk.”

~ Bipasha Basu

“Though blessed with many able administrators, the British found India just too large & diverse to handle. Many of their decisions stoked Hindu-Muslim tensions, imposing sharp new religious-political identities on Indians.”

~ Pankaj Mishra

“In BR Chopra’s Mahabharat, Roopa Ganguly’s portrayal of Draupadi was fit for a queen — sharp but calm, betrayed but stately. Anita Hassanandani’s portrayal of Draupadi in KHMK on the other hand, shrieks and screams, reducing this climactic moment to a hysterical farce, compelling me to use the mute button throughout her monologue.”

~ Anonymous Critic

The political health of Britain has deteriorated very sharply. The Conservative Party must do something about it. I am the man to do it.”

~ Kenneth Clarke

“According to Nietzche,” said a sharp new voice, making them all jump, “philosophy is the biography of the philosopher.”

~ J.K. Rowling

“Prime ministers come and go, but so long as he or she lives, the sovereign remains, receiving and reading all state papers and meeting once a week with the prime minister to advise, enquire, and comment – sometimes sharply, as was the case with Queen Elizabeth II and Mrs. Thatcher – on affairs of state.”

~ Michael Korda

“From infancy, I had been accustomed to hear pro and con discussions of slavery and the American Civil War. Although the British government finally decided not to recognise the Confederacy, public opinion in England was sharply divided on the questions both of slavery and of secession.”

~ Emmeline Pankhurst

This post is my first post for the Wildflower Wednesday Challenge by AJ Vosse. Here’s a link to to AJ Vosse’s blog https://ouchmybackhurts.wordpress.com/2020/03/25/day-24-in-search-of-ethereal-perfection-wildflower-wednesday/

Impatiens glandulifera also known as the Himalayan Balsam is a large annual plant native to the Himalayas. Via human introduction it is now present across much of the Northern Hemisphere and is considered an invasive species in many areas. Uprooting or cutting the plants is an effective means of control. The common names Policeman’s Helmet, Bobby Tops, Copper Tops, and Gnome’s Hatstand all originate from the flowers being decidedly hat-shaped. Himalayan Balsam and Kiss-me-on-the-mountain arise from the plant originating in the Himalayan mountains. Ornamental jewelweed refers to its cultivation as an ornamental plant.

Calotropis gigantea, the crown flower, is a species of Calotropis native to Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, China, Pakistan, Nepal, and tropical Africa. It is a large shrub growing to 4 m (13 ft) tall. It has clusters of waxy flowers that are either white or lavender in colour. Each flower consists of five pointed petals and a small “crown” rising from the center which holds the stamens. The aestivation found in calotropis is valvate i.e. sepals or petals in a whorl just touch one another at the margin, without overlapping. The plant has oval, light green leaves and milky stem. The latex of Calotropis giganteacontains cardiac glycosides, fatty acids, and calcium oxalate.

Barleria prionitis is also known as the porcupine flower, is a species of plant in the family Acanthaceae, native to India, Sri Lanka and Eastern Southern and Central Africa. It is used for various medicinal purposes in Ayurvedic medicine. The juice of the leaves is applied to feet to prevent maceration and cracking in the monsoon season. Barleria prionitis is often the host to larvae of the Phalanta phalantha and Junonia lemonias butterflies. Its leaves are known to contain 6-Hydroxyflavone, one of the chemical compounds that is a noncompetitive inhibitor of the protein cytochrome P450 2C9.

Azaleas are flowering shrubs in the genus Rhododendron, particularly the former sections Tsutsuji (evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous). Azaleas bloom in the spring (May and June in the temperate Northern Hemisphere), their flowers often lasting several weeks. Shade tolerant, they prefer living near or under trees. They are part of the family Ericaceae. Azaleas happen to be the state wildflower of my beloved state Georgia where I live now.

“The thing that we are trying to do at facebook, is just help people connect and communicate more efficiently.”

~ Mark Zuckerberg

“I’ve always felt a spiritual connection with acting. And I felt  whole  when  I  was  onstage.”

~ Patricia Heaton

“Every time I sit for a song, I feel I am finished. It’s like a beggar sitting waiting for God to fill your bowl with the right thought. In every song, I ask help from Him. Everybody around is so good, so to create music that will connect with so many people is not humanly possible without inspiration.”

~ A. R. Rahman

“Gratitude is a decision just like happiness. . . Gratitude is an inner connection between God, the entire creation and us. Everything we are receiving is due to the work of countless people living now and in the past, Mother Nature, and unseen forces. We are indebted to the world. Nature is our mother.”

~ Mata Amritanandamayi

“Bagpipes are definitely for people with Scottish or British ancestries who can connect with a part of their history.”

~ Captain Will Colquhoun

“The connection between dress and war is not far to seek; your finest clothes are those you wear as soldiers.”

~ Virginia Woolf
