  • AT the present hour, when fiction takes forms so ingenious and so specious, it is perhaps necessary to say that the following narrative, in all its parts, and so far as the punctilious attention of the writer has been able to keep it so, is scrupulously true. If it were not true, in this strict sense, to publish it would be to trifle with all those who may be induced to read it. It is offered to them as a document, as a record of educational and religious conditions which, having passed away, will never return. In this respect, as the diagnosis of a...

  • A few words about Dostoevsky himself may help the English reader to understand his work. Dostoevsky was the son of a doctor. His parents were very hard- working and deeply religious people, but so poor that they lived with their five children in only two rooms. The father and mother spent their evenings in reading aloud to their children, generally from books of a serious character. Though always sickly and delicate Dostoevsky came out third in the final examination of the Petersburg school of Engineering. There he had already begun his first work, ‘Poor Folk.’ ...

  • The story of American ships and sailors is an epic of blue water which seems singularly remote, almost unreal, to the later generations. A people with a native genius for seafaring won and held a brilliant supremacy through two centuries and then forsook this heritage of theirs. The period of achievement was no more extraordinary than was its swift declension. A maritime race whose topsails flecked every ocean, whose captains courageous from father to son had fought with pike and cannonade to defend the freedom of the seas, turned inland to seek a different destiny and took no more...

  • The growth of the Internet, which I have been involved in, and the growth of mobile telephone services, which NTT DoCoMo has been a leader in, have been peculiarly interlinked and at the same time separate. The Internet is a lab experiment that broke free, and finds itself in a world of its own contriving, which it often does not understand. The mobile telephone world was developed for commercial purposes, and is in many respects the son of its father, the wired telephone system.

  • Take, for example, the case of Phil Johnson. Phil Johnson's father owned a laundry, so he gave his son a job, hoping the boy would work into the business. But Phil hated the laundry, so he dawdled, loafed, did what he had to do and not a lick more. Some days he was "absent". His father was so hurt to think he had a shiftless, ambitionless son that he was actually ashamed before his employees. One day Phil Johnson told his father he wanted to be a mechanic-work in a machine shop. What? Go back to overalls? The old...

  • Throughout recorded history, humanity has honoured gods of war, such as Ares from Greek mythology. He was the son of Zeus and Hera, the king and queen of the Greek gods. Ares was the father of many children, most of who were war-like or were associated with war. In Roman mythology, Mars was the god of war. Before entering into battle, Roman troops offered sacrifices to him, and, when victorious in battle, Romans honoured Mars with a share of their swag. The word martial, meaning war-like or military, originates from the Roman god’s name....

  • Paul Morphy's father, Judge Morphy, of the Supreme Court of Louisiana, beguiled his leisure hours with the fascinations of Chess, and, finding a precocious aptitude for the game in his son, he taught him the moves and the value of the various pieces. In the language of somebody,-- "To teach the young Paul chess, His leisure he'd employ; Until, at last, the old man Was beaten by the boy." I have here spoilt a very pretty story. The report in chess circles is, that the young Paul learned the moves from seeing his father play with his uncle, Mr. Ernest Morphy, long ranking amongst the...

To prevent a dispute, by uniting these claims, Mary made Darnley her husband. They had a son, who, after the death of his father and mother, was acknowledged to be the heir to...

  • Raul’s investment in his son’s musical training went much further, though. Villa-Lobos recounted that his father adapted a small cello for him, placing a support on a viola, and obliged him to “discern the genre, style, nature and origin of the musical works to which he made [him] listen.” Since he had neither built up a wide circle of relations, nor invested in a career yielding higher financial returns, this precocious initiation in classical music was practically the only legacy that Raul left to Heitor; in 1899, when he was 37 years old, he died after contracting smallpox.
