“It's a fact—everyone is ignorant in some way or another.

Ignorance is our deepest secret.

And it is one of the scariest things out there, because those of us who are most ignorant are also the ones who often don't know it or don't want to admit it.

Here is a quick test:

If you have never changed your mind about some fundamental tenet of your belief, if you have never questioned the basics, and if you have no wish to do so, then you are likely ignorant.

Before it is too late, go out there and find someone who, in your opinion, believes, assumes, or considers certain things very strongly and very differently from you, and just have a basic honest conversation.

It will do both of you good.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Stephen Vincent Benét
“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.”
Stephen Vincent Benét

David Sedaris
“I was just struggling with my inner vachette and pondering the depths of my own inhumanity.”
David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

Kamand Kojouri
“I find myself drunk in the streets again.
A glass of wine and so my thoughts begin.
I smile at passersby to and fro,
Faces like blank slates minutes ago,
Now emotions readily painted on canvases:
Grief, despair, joy, and madnesses.

At this time, the clouds are sweating sweet water
And you can smell the scent of each corner:
Fish, dirt, rotten apples, and burning tires.
Close your eyes here to smell all your heart desires.
Everything is more colourful when you're not yourself.
So long as you’re sound body and mind, you have your wealth.

I am now treading almost fleeting.
Birds singing, bicycle bells ringing.
I have lost my way but not my heart.
Have my head, those two are apart.
Take care dear city, I must soon head home.
Until tomorrow evening when again I will roam.”
Kamand Kojouri

Patrick Rothfuss
“I should have been bolder and kissed her at the end. I should have been more cautious. I had talked too much. I had said too little.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Advice for the wise:
You"d better bite your tongue
Rather than cast a spell wrong.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Witches Of Avignon

Isaac Marion
“I don't know what happened. Disease? War? Social collapse? Or was it just us? The Dead replacing the Living? I guess it's not so important. Once you've arrived at the end of the world, it hardly matters which route you took.”
Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

“real silence is silence without words, silence that speak words in silence and silence that talks better than words”

“When it is mid week, pause and ponder! The very single days we disregard are what become the very years we wished to have used effectively and efficiently. If we disregard today, we shall remember our had I know tomorrow. Time changes therefore think of the changing times.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“There are so many people whose minds do not belong to them. There are so many people whose thoughts have been purchased by people. There are so many people who have made people kings and queens of their thought. There are so many people who cannot sleep because of people. There are so many people whose lives are a small percentage of their own self and a greater percentage of others. When the offenses of people occupy your mind, your mind becomes the offenses of people instead of your own mind. To have your own mind and to be your own self, free your mind!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“The voyage of a lifetime starts at the windowsill.”
Khang Kijarro Nguyen

Richie Norton
“Two questions I'm pondering:

1. If money didn't exist, would you still chase your dreams?

2. If money didn't exist, would you still keep your job?

If the answer is "YES" to both, you're on track. If the answer is "NO" to either, what needs to change?”
Richie Norton

“What goes into our mind matters a lot to the success or failure of our lives. For so many people, what they heard triggered their steps that led them into discarding the real value of their lives. For so many people, what they heard became a spring board that shot the real value of their lives to a glorious height and for so many people, what they heard made them to choose never to do anything in life. Until you lose your hearing, you shall always hear. But, what you hear and what you deduce from what you hear must not just be distinctive but sound enough to make you take a distinctive step which will produce a distinctive footprint. If you fail to mind the seed of what goes into your mind today, you shall surely mind the fruits of what went into your mind yesterday tomorrow. Mind your mind!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Pause and ponder when you get to a certain point in the journey of life. Know your destination and mind the true destiny you shall form upon reaching your final destination.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Uncanny situations; reasons to ponder for action!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Isaac Marion
“I try to think of things to say but nothing comes, and if something did come I probably couldn't say it. This is my great obstacle, the biggest of all the boulders littering my path. In my mind I am eloquent; I can climb intricate scaffolds of words to reach the highest cathedral ceilings and paint my thoughts. But when I open my mouth, it all collapses.”
Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

“if you think you know all that somebody knows, you shall least know all that somebody knows. If you think you least know all that somebody knows, you shall really know all that somebody knows.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“I accept the fact that there is always a way out in every situation we find ourselves but, until we begin to ponder, panacea will be very scarce”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Sometimes, take a moment and ponder; yes, take a moment and stir your life just as you stir that delicious stew! Taste it to know how delicious or the otherwise it is! And if there be a need for a change, be swift and tactical.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Anytime you wonder about something, keep in mind and remember, there is something that can make you a wonder! Just ponder and take action in the right direction, and you shall surely be a wonder!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“real silence is silence without words, silence that speaks words in silence and silence that talks better than words”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Debasish Mridha

“Each year comes with its own memories! Memories that make us ponder! Memories that shake our nerves and thought to think about things we did, things we could have done, things we should have done, the right time and timing for the yes and no we could have say with courage or humility, the right time and timing of our steps and things we should have never done! When you remember the year, you remember something! Something good or something bad!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Each day is new, but our lives shall be old in each new day if we fail to understand why each day is new.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Dante Alighieri
“Behave like men, and not like witless sheep...”
Dante Alighieri, Paradiso

“Let us march past the flag of the past, saluting our achievements’, pondering over our mistakes and thinking of the lessons for the way forward as we march forward to a great tomorrow”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
