“First, individual rights cannot be sacrificed for the sake of the general good, and second, the principles of justice that specify these rights cannot be premised on any particular vision of the good life.

Michael J. Sandel, Liberalism and Its Critics

“Sometimes life will be awesome. Sometimes, life will look blurry. Along the way in the journey of life, sometimes, life will be colder than warmer and sometimes warmer than colder but in all things we must remember that it is never over for a purposeful journey of life until the journey of life is over. Be it rough or smooth, good or bad, we must accomplish the task. It shall always not be good and it shall always not be bad; we only have to work hard.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Life is good! It is only our thoughts, choices and actions towards the situations we meet in life each moment of time that makes life look bad! The same bad situation in life that makes one person think badly inspires another to do a noble thing! The same good situation in life that makes one person feel so good to get into a bad situation inspires another person to create another good situation because of the good situation. It is all about thoughts, choices and actions! Life is good! Live it well!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“.. Italian journalists (like members of the Italian parliament) are among the best paid in the world. ... By law, all journalists get not only the extra 13th month bonus in December, but a 14th month paycheck in June. When you start out, you nevertheless get 26 vacation days a year...plus five days of personal leave. After five years, your annual vacation days increase to 39 plus five days, and after 15 years to 35 days (plus five). Abs if you work for a lifetime, which means 35 years of social security contributions to INPG, you’ll end up with a pension that is pretty close to your final year’s salary.”
Sari Gilbert, My Home Sweet Rome: Living (and Loving) in the Eternal City

“There is nothing good without God”

William B. Irvine
“Most of them, I suspect, come to the mall not because there is something specific that they need to buy. Rather, they come in the hope that doing so will trigger a desire for something that, before going to the mall, they didn't want. It might be a desire for a cashmere sweater, a set of socket wrenches, or the latest cell phone.
Why go out of their way to trigger desire? Because if they trigger one, they can enjoy the rush that comes when they extinguish that desire by buying its object. It is a rush, of course, that has little to do with their long-term happiness as taking a hit of heroin has to do with the long-term happiness of a heroin addict.
My ability to form desires for consumer goods seems to have atrophied.
What brought about this state of affairs? The profound realization, thanks to the practice of Stoicism, that requiring the things that those in my social circle typically crave and work hard to afford will, in the long run, make zero difference in how happy I am and will in no way contribute to my having a good life.”
William B. Irvine, A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy

“Come on, put on a smile. Believe me: it looks good on you. Try a smile, and see if you won't love it. Just smile. It's a free and yet potent medicine. Now, smile. Whatever you cannot get with a smile will even be harder to get with a frown. So, smile. Your attraction to good life and happiness is just one smile away. Please smile. It's your key to people's hearts. You should smile; for smile surprises people.”
Abiodun Fijabi

“Sensuality, in essence, is the energy of your soul expressed in everything you do.”
Lebo Grand
