Re: The English Language

Thanks.
Another poem:

Any lust in the world
be it name, life, or gold

Each one is intoxicating
Missing it is hangovering

The hangovering is indicating
that the missed was intoxicating

Don't take from it more than your need
so it will not take over you indeed

What is the difference between I "refuse" to give him a moment rest AND I "don't want" to give him a moment rest?
I meant when you refuse to do something, do you simply don't accept it when offered? Does it need to be offered at all?
Or do you think of it as something to be ashamed of?

Re: The English Language

Why would the 'chief' of the religion mean? what about 'head'? There is very little difference, but it is perhaps a question of the extent of the person's influence I would describe the Archbishop of Canterbury as the head of the Church of England. He doesn't have the same doctrinal authority as do...

What is a "head arbiter"? We only have a chief arbiter (CA) in the arbiters manual

We are, however, on an unsure footing because you did not give the source of your quotation. Is it a translation?
Yes, my own translation of a poem excerpt by Rumi (RIP)

Re: The English Language

Islamic prose consists of Quran + The saying (narrations) of the prophet and/or Imams(lit. the front).Run The sayings are not Quranic, but helps explain the tradition and Quran. So by the 'prophetic saying' I meant what was narrated that the prophet (PBUH) said. And by lord of Islam, the prophet (PB...

Had the appearance of things been true
what would the prophetic saying's construe
When the lord of Islam made utterance
O god show to me the things in essence

Re: Why did he did so?

Thanks, but still hard to see. In future years this moment may well come to be regarded as one of the most significant episodes in 21st century chess history. The move is indeed hard to see. After all, a player as great as Fabiano Caruana missed it. He was expecting to reach the drawing line given ...
