Did you Know?

Did You Know that Satyriasis refers to a man who has an insatiable sex drive and Nymphomaniac refers to a woman with an insatiable sex drive.

The derivation of these two terms dates back to Greek and Roman mythology. A Satyr is a mythical creature (or not) that has horns, pointed ears, the chest of a man and the legs of a goat. They have a liking for revelry and said to be lustful and merry drinkers. A Nymph is a beautiful mythical maiden that inhabits or personifies nature. They are young, gentle and amorous creatures of the earth. However, some nymphs were a little wilder and caroused with likes of satyrs among the forest.

If I could speak in any
language in heaven or
on earth but didn't love
others, I would only be
making meaningless noise
like a loud gong or a
clanging cymbal. If I
had the gift of prophecy,
and if I knew all the
mysteries of the future
and knew everything
about everything, but
didn't love others, what
good would I be? And
if I had the gift of faith
so that I could speak
to a mountain and make
it move, without love
I would be no good to
anybody. If I gave
everything I have to
the poor and even
sacrificed my body,
I could boast about it;
but if I didn't love others,
I would be of no value
whatsoever. Love is
patient and kind. Love
is not jealous or boastful
or proud or rude. Love
does not demand its
own way. Love is not
irritable, and it keeps
no record of when it
has been wronged.
It is never glad about
injustice but rejoices
whenever the truth
wins out. Love never
gives up, never loses
faith, is always hopeful,
and endures through
every circumstance.

May You Always
Experience This
Kind Of Love,
Dr. Howdy
