Hi, I'm Nini and this is the tumblr where I try to convey daily inspiration for the beauty loving soul. I'm inspired by the ancient Greek ideal of "ARTE" and their ideas about beauty, wisdom and love. (More about the philosophy of this place here...)

Please note: I try to credit all artists properly, if you discover an uncredited post and wish me to complete an information or remove works for copyright reasons, please let me know.

Also: Most of my posts are reblogs I have discovered via a great number of inspiring tumblr users I follow. I warmly encourage everyone to have a look at the notes below each post to see who blogged the content first or before me and follow these people as well! They deserve my full respect and praise - I am grateful for them to dig out such wonderful posts day after day!

"Burma  is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia, with decaying infrastructure and an economy that is just now starting to pick up after decades of stagnation. Yet, it boasts one of the highest literacy rates in the region.

The reverence for reading is evident when you visit. In Yangon, bookstores or book- lending shops are prominent on seemingly every street. Street vendors bide their time between customers reading news magazines. Book clubs are popular. Libraries such as the American Center and British Council Library have robust book club programs; a young professional and former medical student I spoke with during my last trip there said he and his friends have been involved in book clubs since their university days.”
