be little love lost between (two people)

- Nowadays, the government and the opposition party have gotten well which is totally different from a decade ago when there was little love lost between both of them.
- I simply can't stomach this guy because of his attitude, in general. There is little love between us, definitively.

Topic: Haiti Flag and University Day
Posted: Friday, May 18, 2018 2:30:35 PM
- Flag Day has been a major holiday in Haiti since 1803, when the revolutionary leader Jean-Jacques Dessalines tore up a French tricolor and had his goddaughter, Catherine Flon, stitch together the country’s first independent flag.
- The new banner consisted of just a red and a blue stripe, without the central white stripe of the tricolor.
- It is said to symbolize the unity of the nation’s people of color, and rejection of its white colonizers.
- It was not until Jan. 1, 1804, that Haiti officially declared independence from France, becoming the first free state in the Caribbean liberated and governed by its former slaves.
- That revolutionary spirit is still a source of national pride and celebration.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
Hard work is simply the refuge of people who have nothing whatever to do.

- Excellent explanation!
- In my point of view, there are people prone to work like horses and others like donkeys.
- Tamed horses are strong but passives, obeying every command that the rider gives.
- Donkeys obey their riders to certain extents. These animals are smart and witty and they use it all the time, refusing to work when they are not comfortable with commands.

(there's) no comparison

- The conditions on the North Sea for launching a new oil platform is unique in difficulty and there's no comparison in terms of risks management.
- The difficulties in living over the Arctic Circle has no comparison in the Earth due to the uniqueness and harshness of the weather.

have nine lives

Comments
- The time is the master of transformations. It changes lives and things to new ones, for the good or the bad.
- Don't let the time throws sand into one's water. Let this feeling and internal mood flows with the moment enjoying the experiences.
