For me they are really different and thoughtful, simple but speak lots of words……… 1. Photographer – Zilvinas Valeika 2. 3. One of the best photos on the version of Red Bull Illume 2010. 4.

(via art wednesday, fasels suppe) 30 Photos of Cute Baby Animals That Can Change Your Mood Advertisement Being cute is somewhat akin to being a little baby child with a general feel of lovability and affection towards the outlook of the body stature. Cuteness is best demonstrated through small babies who have all the key features that usually attract the eyes of all and sundry and make a person loveable yet there remains an ever so impossible burning desire to own the intangible aspects. Not only the physical appearance but all the subtle behavioral attributes such as a bit of curiosity, pampered but measured arrogance and all other childlike features comprise the cuteness.

All the animals formed a long line before His throne, and the cat quietly went to the end of the line. To the elephant and the bear He gave strength, to the rabbit and the deer, swiftness; to the owl, the ability to see at night, to the birds and the butterflies, great beauty; to the fox, cunning; to the monkey, intelligence; to the dog, loyalty; to the lion, courage; to the otter, playfulness. And all these were things the animals begged of God. At last he came to the end of the line, and there sat the little cat, waiting patiently. "What will YOU have?" Photo by Ivan Nava Blue Gaze by Douzy The cat shrugged modestly. "But I'm God. "Then I'll have a little of everything, please" said the Cat. But he took away her false modesty. ~ "When God Made Cats" by Lenore Fleischer Get authentic success with latest audio lectures provided by 000-579 at highly discounted rates.
