It is not enough to know your craft - you have to have feeling. Science is all very well, but for us imagination is worth far more
Édouard Manet
January 23, 1832, Paris – April 30, 1883

Édouard Manet was a French painter who broke new ground by defying traditional techniques of representation and by choosing subjects from the events and circumstances of his own time. His Déjeuner sur l’herbe (Luncheon on the Grass), exhibited in 1863 at the Salon des Refusés, aroused the hostility of critics and the enthusiasm of the young painters who later formed the nucleus of the Impressionist group. His other notable works include Olympia (1863) and A Bar at the Folies-Bergère (1882).

Plácido Domingo
born 21 January 1941 in Madrid

José Plácido Domingo Embil is a Spanish tenor, conductor and opera administrator whose resonant, powerful tenor voice, imposing physical stature, good looks, and dramatic ability made him one of the most popular tenors of his time.
In 1961 Domingo made his operatic debut in Mexico City and then went to Dallas to perform in its opera company. From 1962 to 1965 he was a resident performer at Tel Aviv’s Hebrew National Opera. He made his debut at the New York City Opera in 1965, at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City in 1968 (subsequently becoming a regular performer there), and at La Scala in Milan in 1969. Over the course of an opera career that lasted more than 45 years, Domingo sang an unprecedented number of different roles—more than 120—and he continued to learn new parts into his 60s.
In 1993 he founded an international competition, Operalia, to help young opera singers launch their careers.
Over the course of his own career, he received a dozen Grammy Awards in several categories as well as a Kennedy Center Honor (2000), the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom (2002), and an honorary British knighthood (2002) among many other honors.
Domingo's autobiography, My First Forty Years, was published in 1983.

Anne Brontë
17 January 1820,Thornton – 28 May 1849

Anne Brontë was an English poet and novelist, sister of Charlotte and Emily Brontë and author of Agnes Grey (1847) and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848).
The youngest of six children of Patrick and Marie Brontë, Anne lived most of her life with her family at the parish of Haworth on the Yorkshire moors. With her sister Emily, she invented the imaginary kingdom of Gondal, about which they wrote verse and prose (the latter now lost) from the early 1830s until 1845. At the age of 19 she left Haworth and worked as a governess between 1839 and 1845. After leaving her teaching position, she fulfilled her literary ambitions.
She wrote a volume of poetry with her sisters - Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell (1846) and two novels, Agnes Grey, based upon her experiences as a governess, was published together with Emily’s Wuthering Heights in three volumes (of which Agnes Grey was the third) in 1847. Her second and last novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which is considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels, appeared in 1848.
Anne's life was cut short when she died of pulmonary tuberculosis at the age of 29.

Blue Monday

Fats Domino - Blue Monday
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3e_y9Bc7hs

The third Monday of the month is considered the most depressing day of the year, according to some mathematics equations and others unspecified studies... It is combined with severe weather, post-Christmas and when people start to break their New Year resolutions and waiting for End of month to get paid!!!
But don't make it affect you. Let's Smile!

There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.
Federico Fellini
January 20, 1920, Rimini - October 31, 1993

Federico Fellini was an Italian film director and scriptwriter who was one of the most celebrated and distinctive filmmakers of the period after World War II. Early in his career he helped inaugurate the Neorealist cinema movement, but he soon developed his own distinctive style of typically autobiographical films that imposed dreamlike or hallucinatory imagery upon ordinary situations and portrayed people at their most bizarre.
After a provincial childhood during which he developed a talent as a cartoonist, Fellini at age 19 moved to Rome, where he contributed cartoons, gags, and stories to the humour magazine Marc’Aurelio, worked as a scriptwriter for the radio program Cico e Pallina, starring Giulietta Masina, the actress who became Fellini’s wife in 1943 and who went on to star in several of the director’s greatest films during the course of their 50-year marriage.
In 1944 Fellini met director Roberto Rossellini, who engaged him as one of a team of writers who created Roma, città aperta (Rome, Open City, 1945), often cited as the seminal film of the Italian Neorealist movement. Fellini’s contribution to the screenplay earned him his first Oscar nomination.
Fellini quickly became one of Italy’s most successful screenwriters and made his debut as director in collaboration with Lattuada on Luci del varietà (Variety Lights, 1951). This was the first in a series of works dealing with provincial life and was followed by Lo sceicco bianco (The White Sheik) and I vitelloni (Spivs or The Young and the Passionate, 1953), his first critically and commercially successful work, still considered by some critics to be Fellini’s masterpiece...
He won five Academy Awards, becoming the person who won the highest number of Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film in history.

Oliver Hardy
January 18, 1892, Harlem, Georgia – August 7, 1957

Oliver Hardy (born Norvell Hardy) was an American comic actor famous as one half of Laurel and Hardy, the classic double act that began in the era of silent films and lasted 25 years, from 1927 to 1951.
Norvell Hardy’s father died in late 1892; in tribute, the younger Hardy adopted his father’s first name, Oliver. While managing a movie theatre in 1913, Hardy decided that he could do better—or at least no worse—than the actors he saw on-screen, and so he went to work at the Lubin Studios, Jacksonville the following year. During the next decade, Hardy appeared in more than 200 films for various studios (including an appearance as the Tin Man in the 1925 silent version of The Wizard of Oz ) before being signed by Hal Roach (1926).
In 1921, Oliver Hardy appeared in the movie The Lucky Dog, produced by G.M. Anderson and starring a young British comedian named Stan Laurel. Hardy played the part of a robber, trying to stick up Stan’s character. They did not work together again for several years.
In 1927, Laurel and Hardy began sharing screen time together in Slipping Wives, Duck Soup and With Love and Hisses ...
In 1960 Laurel was awarded an honorary Oscar for his contributions to film comedy.

Mihai Eminescu
January 15, 1850, Ipotești, Botoșani – June 15, 1889

Mihai Eminescu (born Mihail Eminovici) was a Romantic poet, novelist and journalist who transformed both the form and content of Romanian poetry, creating a school of poetry that strongly influenced Romanian writers and poets in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Eminescu’s talent was first revealed in 1870 by two poems published in Convorbiri literare, the organ of the Junimea society in Iaşi. Other poems followed, and he became recognized as the foremost modern Romanian poet. Mystically inclined and of a melancholy disposition, he lived in the glory of the Romanian medieval past and in folklore, on which he based one of his outstanding poems, Luceafărul (The Evening Star, 1883).
Eminescu’s poetry has a distinctive simplicity of language, a masterly handling of rhyme and verse form, a profundity of thought, and a plasticity of expression which affected nearly every Romanian writer of his own period and after. His poems have been translated into several languages, including an English translation in 1930, but chiefly into German. Among his prose writings, apart from many studies and essays, the best-known are the stories Cezara and Sărmanul Dionis (1872).
Manuscripts, containing 46 volumes and approximately 14,000 pages, were offered by Titu Maiorescu as a gift to the Romanian Academy.
Due to his conservative nationalistic views, Eminescu was easily adopted as an icon by the Romanian right.
