«It is hovering, it is not an airplane» were his last words. He was abducted live, so to speak.
Topic: There was no use in trying to emancipate a wife who had not the dimmest notion that she was not free.

The hardest thing is to free those who do not know they are not free. This is the problem with the populations of many authoritarian and totalitarian countries.
Topic: The Sordid Truth behind Degas's Ballet Dancers

Topic: So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls, why don't somebody wake up to the beauty of old women?

Beautiful is associated with being physically attractive. This is not characteristic of old persons (if we are not talking about gerontophilia).
Topic: The Gregorian Calendar

Some Orthodox churches still use archaic and demoded calendar systems.
