“Let's sleep
you on top of me
my hands circling your waist
yours holding my face
my legs entangled in yours
yours tenderly wrapped in mine
your eyes looking deeply into mine
mine staring longingly at yours
and we will keep searching for our footsteps in the sands of time...”

Michel de Certeau
“Their story begins on ground level, with footsteps. They are myriad, but do not compose a series. They cannot be counted because each unit has a qualitative character: a style of tactile apprehension and kinesthetic appropriation. Their swarming mass is an innumerable collection of singularities. Their intertwined paths give their shape to spaces. They weave places together. In that respect, pedestrian movements form one of these 'real systems whose existence in fact makes up the city.' They are not localized; it is rather they that spatialize. They are no more inserted within a container than those Chinese character speakers sketch out on their hands with their fingertips.”
Michel de Certeau, The Practice of Everyday Life

Michel de Certeau
“It seems thus possible to give a preliminary definition of walking as a space of enunciation.”

Munia Khan
“Crossing the limit is not my style
My footsteps meander less than a mile
I travel the world perhaps in a minute
Yet a dream, to me, is never infinite!”
Munia Khan

“Let's sleep
you on top of me
my hands circling your waist
yours holding my face
my legs entangled in yours
yours tenderly wrapped in mine
my eyes staring longingly at yours
yours looking deeply into mine
and we will keep searching for our footsteps in the sands of time...”
Avijeet Das

Joshua Cohen
“The wife said, “That’s what it said in the pamphlet: follow in the footsteps of Jesus—but it didn’t say how many steps.”
Joshua Cohen, Moving Kings

“You may follow the footsteps
The whole day will pass
With you going around in circles
Yet not reaching anywhere at last!”
Avijeet Das

“Live your dream and let your dream have life. Don't just live life; live and leave distinctive footprints of life in your life. There shall surely be criticisms and oppositions in all forms, but know your true purpose and understand how to give life to your true purpose no matter what. A true purpose is a true purpose notwithstanding where it is, though environment can hinder the true and real growth of a true purpose! Dream and give life to your dreams!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“We wake up to be alive and to revive our lives; we don’t wake up to keep sleeping! We wake up not just to be alive, but also to keep our works alive and mind the business of the day! When you wake up, revive your work! Sometimes you may just feel reluctant to do something when day breaks, but you must remember that there is always something that needs to be done when day breaks, for each day we meet as we journey in life comes with its own agenda! He who fails to know the real reasons why day breaks shall always abuse the real and true essence of each day, knowingly or unknowingly! Be alive when you wake up and do something with all your might when day breaks for you surely leave a footprint each day you wake up! When you wake up, wake up!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Fathers left distinctive footprints; sons should think of noble footsteps”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Life is lived to accomplish a mission! Life must be lived with a vision! Life is moved by the heart and the mind! When your mission becomes your mind, your mind becomes your mission. When your vision becomes your heart, your heart becomes your vision! When your mission and your visions in life become your heart and your mind, you mind not just your mission and vision, but also your life as a whole and the footprints you leave with every footstep you take!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Tomorrow, today will come and visit you; mind today!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Gina Marinello-Sweeney
“My mother once told me as a child that you can tell who is coming by the mere sound of their footsteps. I remember looking at her incredulously, my short curls bouncing in agreement with my dissent. Yet, upon her departure, I heard in her footsteps the essence of Mom. Ever since, I would know who was approaching down the hall of our home without prior visual identification.

And the footsteps I heard at the entrance of the bookstore carried the vague echo of a memory that promised dread.”
Gina Marinello-Sweeney, The Rose and the Sword

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Be careful your footsteps do not stumble by the stumbling stone.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“Words are like the wind. They will blow away your own footsteps but they also will blow away the footsteps and thoughts of others. Use them wisely and with care.”
Brent M, Jones

Charles Dickens
“it was such a curious corner in its acoustical properties, such a peculiar Ear of a place, that as Mr. Loory stood at the open window, looking for the father and daughter whose steps he heard, he fancied they would never approach. Not only would the echoes die away, as thought the steps had gone; but, echoes of other steps that never came would be heard in their stead, and would die away for good when they seemed close at hand. However, father and daughter did at last appear, and Miss Pross was ready at the street door to receive them.”
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Lailah Gifty Akita
“May the Lord direct your life’s journey.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom: Great mind

“Buddha has walked for an eternity, but his eternity is different from ours.
Just as the footprints that he leaves.
When we follow in his footsteps, each step of Buddha's, is in itself, a universe of knowledge which can take many lifetimes for us to discover and learn about.
Then, just as we have learnt about this universe and life of ours, we move on to the next step, and then that, too, becomes a new universe to learn about.
It is a quest, and a learning experience which we will never finish, and it is one that I have no wish to.”
Anthony T.Hincks

“May love guide your footsteps, and wisdom guide your way.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Life is full of footprints; your steps determines yours.”
