“Mind your mind, mind your time and mind your life! Life is just once and the real certainty or uncertainty that can make you lose it is always uncertain; until you understand this well, you shall never neither understand how well to live your life each moment of time and leave indelible footprints, big or small, that shall please God nor shall you ever know how well to live and leave noble and indelible footprints worth not just talking about, but emulating. Mind your mind, mind your time and mind your life!”

So many people sleep and they only sleep! So many people wake up and they don’t see anything in the day from dawn to dusk! When you close your eyes, dream! When you open your eyes, see! When you take a step, take a definite action with the right attitude!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Tracy Groot
“It was the worst picture she had seen in her life. It was worse than the crying baby in Shanghai.
‘Sometimes we need to see why we fight,’ said the burglar vicar gently. ’We need to see what God sees. Then we can understand just a little better His wrath, and His justice, and His love.’
He slipped the photograph from her hand, put it in the folder, slipped the folder from her. She pulled the pillow over her face and wept.
She’d not forget that image, not for the rest of her life.
She cried herself deaf for the child and for Arthur Vance; for Murray whose Rocket Kid could not save this child, and for William, because she finally understood what it felt like to be eviscerated.
She wept that she could not go and die for this boy.
‘I’m utterly useless!’ she screamed into the pillow, and finally came to her defeated senses. A good cry, and she did not feel better.
‘You are hardly useless,’ said the Burglar Vicar.
‘Oh really? I can’t even sit up.’
‘You can pray.’
‘How do you know it does any good?’
‘It’s better than moping, which does no good at all.”
She supposed it would be better to pray than to mope. The Shrew said prayer held them to their tasks. She said she saw before her eyes that it worked. ‘Yes, yes — I can pray!”
Tracy Groot, Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk

Israelmore Ayivor
“Don’t just exist; do something meaningful with your life. Discover a problem and fix it.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Become a Better You

“We have chemicals in all food, no matter what the label says.
We have plastic in all food chains, no matter what they claim.
We have hate in all walks of life, no matter what we preach.
We have different varying degrees of greed within each of us, no matter what we say.

Man has infected every level of society and the environment. Yet, we take no responsibility for rectifying the situation. Sure, we can dress it up in fancy words, throw big gala events and hold lots of meetings because that is what makes us feel good.
Maybe for a change we should take a more active approach. Man has dirtied this world of ours and he will never stop because he really doesn't care.
Maybe, it's time that we did start caring for something other than ourselves.”
Anthony T. Hincks

Christina Engela
“Some people do everything, some do something, many do nothing – which is bad enough – but the worst of the lot are those who break down what others have built.”
