it is the sentence with the condition in the past. there are three possibilities to express the condition: in the present,in the past and in the future. this is the second case.

to Romany:

thanx for answer.
reflux and reflex are very similar words and not only in writing form but also in the meaning- core of the word.

latin language used in medicine has similar words as some or a lot of international words.

international words are similar in various languages or have similar word core.

according to my information the gag reflex is when a meal you have eaten returns to your throat into your mouth.
in the medicine it is called gastroesofageal reflux.

Topic: Why is it Wharhol's Campbell tin so important?
Posted: Wednesday, January 21, 2015 2:39:03 AM
to everyone:

i have read about this topic a few books, and i have visited the traditionaĺ and modern galleries to compare the old paintings and modern fine art.

there are various streams of the fine art, not only old paintings form the period of reinessance or gothic...
there exists also moderna, postmoderna and antimoderna where belongs expresionism,cubism,fauvism, and also mentioned pop art with the Campbell soup tin.

the core of the old paintings - the basic sense and goal/ focus was to explain and to show the beauty, but later- after year 1900 it was about the communication - what does the artist tell to the public and it was not only beauty,but also awfull things, to which he wanted to pay attention - the politics critisizing the war and other senses...

the decorative sense of old paintings focusing on the beauty are already dead, not actual.

Hello RogerMue,

ich mochte dazu auch etwas schreiben.

Legenden und Mythos-Mythen haben den Grund in der Griechischen und Romanischen Mythologie --wie hat das Welt gibt viele griechische Gotte, zum Beispiel Zeus, Athena, Aphrodite, kann daruber in Homer Eposen zu lesen--Illias und Oddysea...
Romanische Gotte meiner Meinung nach haben das Grund fur Christianischen Religion gegeben. und auch Bibel, das Buch der Christianischen Religion ist mit den Legenden erfullt...

Griechen und Roma sind mit den Legenden und Mythen am meisten verbuden, aber auch alle andere Gebiete haben seine Legenden---zum Beispiel England uber Robin Hood, France uber Drei Musketieren, Deutschland uber Wiliam Tell, Slovakia uber Janosik...

Zum Marchen
sehr nettes Thema, die zum Kinderheit gehort...In Slovakia haben wir viele Marchen Authoren, zum Beispiel--Lubomir Feldek, Pavol Dobsinsky,Marie Majerova, Elena Cepcekova...die beruhmteste sind die von Pavol Dobsinsky, weil er die alteste slowakische Marchen gesammelt hat...

Topic: Lessing
Posted: Tuesday, October 14, 2014 4:14:16 AM
Lessing---he may be Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, the writer...

The sentence you have mentioned, it can be about men and women:

there were written many books about men that have come from Mars and women that have come from Venus...
maybe he has thought the men from Mars and women from Venus in this quotation.

but is is only my suggestion, i have never read this quotation in any book.
