Original Hippocratic Oath, translated into English:
“ I swear by Apollo, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath.
To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art.
I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.
I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.
But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.
I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.
In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves. All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal.
If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my lot.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. ~Mark Twain
He made an instrument to know If the moon shine at full or no; That would , as soon as e’re she shone straight, whether ’twere day or night demonstrate; Tell what her d’ameter to an inch is,and prove that she’s not made of green cheese.
Royce is a member of the Gracie family. He is the son of Hélio Gracie (Helio, along with his older brother Carlos Gracie, are the originators of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and spent his childhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a toddler, Royce learned Jiu-Jitsu from his father and his older brothers Rorion, Relson, and Rickson Gracie. He began competing at the age of 8 and by the time he was 16 had attained the level of blue belt. A year later he was invited by his brother Rorion to help teach Jiu-Jitsu from his garage in America. Despite not knowing English, Royce accepted the offer and moved to California. He competed in a number of Jiu-Jitsu tournaments in Brazil and the United States and compiled an amateur record of 51-3. Royce received his black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the age of 18. Royce is now a 5th degree black belt.

“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight, At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more, When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death, And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”

This is Willard. Just a normal boy growing up in a small town where he fights of pirates in the corn fields and explores caves. One day he mysteriously finds himself transported to another world or fantastic characters and landscapes. If you would like to hear more about his adventures check out The Library of Jack and Shannon!
"It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out where the strong man stumbled, or where a doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs, and who comes up short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause. The man who at best knows the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, fails while daring greatly, so that his place will never be with those cold timid souls who never knew victory or defeat."
“The guardian angels of life fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us.”

Skomolii is the brain child of Jeff Elden. A deadly vegetable grown by the evil Dr. Cheese. In most cases is an irresistible veggie adored by children. But unless you eat them every day you will die in a gruesome and bizarre manner.
But in some cases they like in the cinema classic "Gremlins 2". There are genetic varieties that would appear as soon as they have properly ripened.
In this case K10 came home from a hard day of work. She managed to beat Jeff home ad decided to relax and read her book for awhile and then to make dinner. She had just found a Skomolli lasagna recipe that she was dying to try out.
She heard a noise from the kitchen. She looked down at the floor and both cats where curled around her feet. She cautiously got to her feet and made her way o the kitchen doorway. She could see the block of knives of the counter and pulled the one that was closest to her.
Then she saw it.
Something moved on the counter. Was it a mouse? Or a Rat?
No. It was green. It was the Skomolii that she and Jeff had just picked up last night. It had budded small black eyes on stalks, crab like claws, and three segmented insect like legs.
"Well. It looks like dinner is going to be late." K10 whispered to herself.
