"At your birth a seed is planted. That seed is your uniqueness. It wants to grow, transform itself, and flower to its full potential. It has a natural, assertive energy to it. Your life’s task is to bring that seed to flower, to express your uniqueness through your work."

The Colosseum was originally clad entirely in marble.
When you visit or see the Colosseum these days you’ll notice how the stone exterior appears to be covered in pockmarks all across its surface.
Whilst you might assume this is just degradation of the material due to its age, it is actually because it was originally clad almost entirely in marble.
The reason for the pockmarks is, after the fall of Rome, the city was looted and pillaged by the Goths. Yes that’s right, the Goths!
They took all of the marble from the Colosseum, and stripped it (mostly) down to its bare stone setting.
The holes in the stone are from where the iron clamps and poles attaching the marble cladding to it have been ripped out.
Alfred Hitchcock’s, Psycho (1960) was the first American film ever to show a flushing toilet.
