  3. David Frederick:

    One theory is that in ancestors of humans, orgasm occurred more easily because its function was to cause ovulation to occur. This happens in many animals, once the monthly menstrual cycle began regulating ovulation, orgasm was no longer coupled with reproduction for women. This allowed ability and ease of orgasm becoming more variable in women over millions of years and is why orgasm frequency is much more variable in women than in men.

  4. Haida Indian saying:

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Whether we like it or not, we are the dwarfs astride the shoulders of giants, and that's the only reason why we can see lot more and farther on the horizon than our predecessors could. Our accomplishments of greatest pride, like classic creations, amazing arts, wonderful writings, beautiful paintings, and ingenius inventions are all, in fact, the builds and extensions of the wisdom that came to us from our ancestors. We mastered their wisdom and moved above and beyond. We must gratefully recognize that it was their wisdom that enabled us to grow wiser, and to see farther than they could. It is foolish to think that we are able to see or do what we can today is because we are greater than they. We are merely the dwarfs who are uplifted and borne aloft on the giagantic stature of our predecessors. Accepting this truth with humility not only sets us free, but also keeps us firmly down to earth.
