I like the handwritten font you're using. Nice clean layout too with lots of white space.
An excellent and reflective online blog. Pensive and well-written.
"Writers are artists of a different kind" Writing is an art only few are really good at, you're one of those few.. Keep on doing this, wish you tons of luck.
I like your energy Paul. Keep doing what your doing:)
Would like to share a few words that changed my day "Learning is the antidote to change. Learning is the antidote to fear."
Live your life more , write your own book more and good good luck ;)

I just wanted to congratulate you for your nice website. I liked it and it's nice to read from you.Good luck
Mabrouk Paul!!..as a blogger + social media freak + writer at heart, I must say I was very touched by the first page and introduction of your website. "Nulla dies sine linea", something I definitely live by and for.
Keep it up, keep the posts coming. This website won't only be your interaction with the world but also an interaction with your inner self as you will watch your own work improve by the post and change "au fil des lignes et des jours".
C'est tres beau de te voir aller ds la bonne voie, j'esperes que tu va etre toujours maitre de tes choix! Je suis fier de toi! Keep up the good work and fill the blanks !
Special words from a very special person... love your website Paul.
The choice of words, topics and your style of writing are so refreshing in an age where, nowadays, we are so often bombarded with mindless drivel. Well done Paul. Please keep up the inspirational and uplifting work.
Your words are inspiring and magical, they have such logic but still so much passion, consider me a new fan!
Great personal website Paul! Original and inspiring. Congrats!
Raramente podemos toparnos con personas que con solo una mirada te transmiten una buena energia, personas que resaltan por el simple hecho de que son especialmente diferentes... Muy bonito tu blog al igual que tu espiritu... Muy buen trabajo
The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go...None of us is perfect...but we can all be perfect friends and perfect parters by allowing those that we love to be imperfect...Paul, I really do meet so many people but YOU are really different...perfect! because of your intentions...when I first had the chance to read your writings I thought...passion on meta level...yearning for change...respecting diversity...having courage in letting things go...to make room for new dimensions...lucky me... I met you...z
My Dear Paul.An ever raising Star you are, with non ending shining glare, all of your life, the past, the present, and the future to be. WE trust in God with your Book and that HE will only permit the wrighting of joy and servitude to Him and humanity.Alfredo
Lovely Blog Paul! My compliments! regards, Tania
We all want to have true friends, but the quality of our friends depend on us. If you want to have true friends, you should be a true friend yourself. By being a true friend, people will love to be around you and many of them will eventually become your true friends.
In addition, being a true friend is a good way to solve relationship problems. It’s difficult to change other people, but you can always change yourself. You can then solve the otherwise unsolved problems in relationships.
It may take years to learn how to be a good friend but here are a few tips:
1. Befriend yourself
This is an essential first step if you are to be a true friend. If you don’t even accept yourself, how can you accept others? You may have made mistakes in the past that you can’t forget. But forgive yourself for them. You perhaps don’t have the traits you want in life. But accept yourself as you are.
2. Accept others
After you befriend yourself, you will be in a good position to accept others. Other people may do you wrong or have some bad habits you don’t like. But you are not perfect yourself so there is no reason for you not to accept them.
3. Make time
Sometimes we are too busy to provide time for relationships, even for important people in our life. That most likely happens because we put relationships too low in our priority list. If we regard relationships as high priority, time won’t be a problem. We will make time for relationships.
4. Be a good listener
The art of listening is one of the most difficult arts to master. A true friend is a good listener.
5. Enrich others’ life
A true friend provides value to others. If you want to do that, you should live a lifestyle of value. This way you amass value in your life you can then distribute to others.
6. Understand first
Everyone looks at life through his own lens. Often we expect others to see life through the same lens as ours, but that will create a lot of problems. A true friend is someone who is willing to look through other people’s lenses first. He tries to understand why they think and act that way.
7. Find common ground
Finding common ground helps you connect with new friends quickly. The common ground allows you to talk to others about something they are interested in and thereby build relationships with them.
8. Be interested
If you want to be interesting you should first be interested. Be curious. Cultivate interest about many things. If you do that, you can genuinely be enthusiastic when people talk to you about something. People will feel appreciated and love to be around you.
9. Take initiative to help
A true friend doesn’t wait until someone asks his help. Instead, he takes the initiative to help others. This, of course, is easier said than done. To do this, you should be on the lookout for needs. Be sensitive. Often you can find others’ needs through what they implicitly say. You may also see it through their body language. When you sense a need, think about how you can help them and take the initiative to help.
10. Trust others
If you treat others as good and trustworthy people, they will also treat you likewise. People will feel how you believe in them and they will be touched by your sincerity.
11. Know the right time to do things
A true friend knows the right time to praise, the right time to listen, and the right time to rebuke and when to come and when to stay away. A true friend masters the art of timing.
12. Have integrity
Integrity is the foundation of true friendship. Be sure that you do what you say. You can only build true friendship if you are true to yourself and others.
13. Be present in difficult times
This is the test of true friendship. Only true friends will choose to be with you in difficult times. So, to be a true friend, be with your friends in their dark moments. Be with them even if you need to let go your own convenience.
Paul ... quel plaisir de te voir en ligne enfin! T'es une personne assez intelligente et tu sais a quel point j'apprecie nos echanges culturels, religieux et meme parfois au sujet de la femme! te souhaite bcp de succes et de bonne chance et je te dis a tres bientot au Liban!

Paul, what a divine person you are... All the best my friend xo

Strangely,am writing my own traveling book here in Italy, and u just made me realize with ur blog introduction quotes that life is really a book and our days are our blank pages waiting to be filled.thanks for making me think of that in that way tho i was doing it already.P.S : Respirare non è vivere, vivere è quando ti manca il respiro. (a quote that i keep in mind all day long)
So you've told me you write good articles but it's only now that I got the chance to read some of them. Very impressive indeed.Looking forward for more, good luck
Very well done Paul! Ad maioraM.
You have always a great writer and you always knew how to choose you words. I m so happy for you and congratulation for your website which is i guess the first ot its kind for a student at our University, and i wish you nothing but the best in you professionnal career :)
each word , written , said , or done , is one step forward ! All these white pages that can t be written without us .......kiss , Rosalie
tree boo mabrook!!
What was written (intentionally, most probably) on a previously blank HOME page is deemed really touching, worth to be read.And when it entices & incites us to feel (free) like delving deep, this means that the message, moreover what it underlies, is heavy enough to have sunk deep down.Apprendre à vivre (savoir vivre si tu veux)... faut surtout savoir mourir. Les trois points entre les deux, c'est nous, ce qu'on fait de nos jours... de nos nuits, surtout. Que pour laisser une trace, rien que ça.
Hopefully you being a book to be read & remembered, not some other book forgotten on a certain shelf.
"Keep on fertilizINK", instead of wishing you the "best of luck".
