Vera Nazarian
“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.

Which, by the way, is something highly inadvisable. Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?

So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“Let us dedicate this new era to mothers around the world, and also to the mother of all mothers -- Mother Earth. It is up to us to keep building bridges to bring the world closer together, and not destroy them to divide us further apart. We can pave new roads towards peace simply by understanding other cultures. This can be achieved through traveling, learning other languages, and interacting with others from outside our borders. Only then will one truly discover how we are more alike than different. Never allow language or cultural traditions to come between brothers and sisters. The same way one brother may not like his sister's choice of fashion or hairstyle, he will never hate her for her personal style or music preference. If you judge a man, judge only his heart. And if you should do so, make sure you use the truth in your conscience when weighing one's character. Do not measure anybody strictly based on the bad you see in them and ignore all the good.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Gift Gugu Mona
“Grateful for you
You are a wonderful treasure.
My love for you I cannot measure.
In you, God gave me an Angel.
Through you, I got blessed by the Heavens.
An answered prayer of way back.
Just when I thought it was all over.
My precious gift from above,
You showed up!
Filled with your bright smile.
And loads of fun.
You make me so fine.
Oh! What a privilege in life.
Being given such sense of pride.
To call you my child,
And that you chose to be mine.
You have been too kind,
To give me hope, every time.
I could go through heavy tides.
With you by my side,
I always rise.
You help me make so many strides.
Shall never drown, not even once.
For you always give me a better chance.
To become a daring Mom.
I have peace, even in the storm,
Because you help me stay strong.
So glad you came along.
And never left me, all alone.
It’s a great honour to be your Mother.
My perfect match.
Such a great catch!
My very best friend.
Will you lend me a hand?
To walk beside you on this land.
For you are what I ever needed.
And I am so grateful for you.”
Gift Gugu Mona

“* Man is the measure of all things.
- Protagoras

* The human holds itself limited knowledge within the knowledge of the universe, gifted by the Divine blessings; thus, the human has not the capability to measure all subjects in its large-scale dimensions on this planet. As a fact, human falls under natural restrictions and limits; whereas, the limitation cannot generate and reach the measure of all things.
