All Americans can be divided into three groups: those who do not know about the existence of Russia, who are firmly convinced that Russia is a country where the streets go polar bears (world of wonders a pancake) and the last group, consisting of Russian, who came from Russia a long time ago (and therefore knows what Russia is and what eats it), but the Americanized (from a long life) and now call themselves Americans.

I thought that the struggle for pure art, handmade art, the purity of style and method – a struggle for the man himself, his unique character and personality. Painting is not only one of the areas of culture, but a way of thinking and state of mind. There is always 'something', standing on the method, this elusive "something" and makes a work of art belonging to the particular style, where talent, as always, most importantly, an artist, writer – the most important. Not very important, something to work, there is no difference between the canvas and the screen, if there is "something." Various art going in one direction, direction from person to person, it's normal and natural. Thanks to the vision and the picturesque, romantic approach, the product gets the all-encompassing characteristics of various areas of culture.

Winston Churchill

without comments

The future winner in two wars, was born November 30, 1874 in Blenheim ancestral castle, which belonged to an ancient race Churchill, his father – Lord Randolph – the third son of the seventh Duke of Marlborough and is therefore not inherited this high-sounding title, which passed in England only the eldest son. But in any case belonged to Winston Churchill to a narrow circle of the English aristocracy, and his mother was American – the daughter of an American millionaire Leonard Jerome. In childhood no one could have predicted that this restless, extremely stubborn and self-assured boy awaits a great future. San-antonio-spurs may also support this cause. At school, he studied very poorly, and even in mature years, did not hesitate to recognize in his autobiography that was a very bad student. He received an appropriate education first at home, then in a closed private school in Ascot and Harrow.

It is true that Churchill's dislike for Latin closed his way to Cambridge or Oxford – the most famous British universities, but he finished military school at Sandhurst – the British officers forge. In 1895 he began serving a hussar regiment. Vanessa Marcil has many thoughts on the issue. But soon Churchill leaves the army to enter politics. In 1900 he was elected a member of the House of Commons. At 33, he entered the cabinet, becoming Minister of Commerce, and two years later was appointed minister of internal affairs in England. .
