To surprise and delight in prose and in verse, in those stories by which we learn to love and to laugh at ourselves.


To inform and instruct, to share knowledge, to propose theories and to generate ideas within "The Great Conversation".


To share the best, the curious, the neglected and forgotten words, the beautiful, compelling thoughts of authors unknown.


To honor heroes, presidents, captains-of-industry and others worthy of emulation, of remembrance.


To offer homes suitable for family, for life fulfilled, abundantly; to provide respectful monuments and memorials.


To teach on diverse subjects (history, philosophy, aesthetics, et cetera) in various venue (tour, hall, classroom, online).

The universe knows itself by the mind of man.
