Alexander Graham Bell

Israelmore Ayivor
“Contrary to popular opinion, leadership is not a reserved position for a particular group of people who were elected or appointed, ordained or enthroned. Leadership is self-made, self-retained, self-inculcated and then exposed through a faithful, sincere and examplary life.”
Israelmore Ayivor

“Transformations are a part of life. We are constantly being changed by things changing around us. Nobody can control that. Nobody can control the environment, the economy, luck, or the moods of others. Compositions change. Positions change. Dispositions change. Experiences change. Opportunities and attitudes change. You will change.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Righteousness is the truth revealed and working in you.”
Sherry K. White, Walking in the Father's Riches: The Prosperity of Sonship

William Dean Howells
“Yes, there's sense in that. But the suddenly rich are on a level with any of us nowadays. Money buys position at once. I don't say that it isn't all right. The world generally knows what it's about, and knows how to drive a bargain. I dare say that it makes the new rich pay too much. But there's no doubt but money is to the fore now. It is the romance, the poetry of our age. It's the thing that chiefly strikes the imagination. The Englishmen who come here are more curious about the great new millionaires than about anyone else, and they respect them more. It's all very well. I don't complain of it.”
William Dean Howells, The Rise of Silas Lapham

“Shouldn't it be made a crime to vie for a position you can't deliver? We have a confused and compromised executive and an assembly of pigs providing checks and balances in Kenya.”

“The size of a man’s head does not determine his sense of reasoning, neither can the size of his leg determine how far he can go in life.”
Bamigboye Olurotimi

“When you stand accused, your character is being tested. The strength of character that you reveal will ultimately determine the Tanks’ perception of you and future behavior toward you. Action Plan Step 1. Hold Your Ground. The first step is to stay put and hold your ground, neither running away nor gearing for battle. Do not change your position, whether you happen to be standing, sitting, leaning, or making up your mind. You don’t have to go on the offensive or the defensive. Instead, silently look the Tank in the eyes, and shift your attention to your breathing. Breathe slowly and deeply. Intentional breathing is a terrific way to regain your self-control. And while you compose yourself, the Tank has the opportunity to fire off a round unimpeded. When Martin found himself under attack, he restrained his impulse to counterattack. Instead, he held his ground. He looked into his boss’s eyes, kept breathing, and waited for the blasting to stop. When it did, Martin asked, “Is that everything?” Apparently, that wasn’t all. The Tank loaded up another round a of abuse and fired it off. Martin held his temper in check, took a slow breath, and asked evenly, “Anything else?” “Why, you ...” Sherman loaded up his last round and fired it off. He was now completely out of ammunition, having said every rotten thing he knew how to say. At that point, he just stood there silently glaring at Martin, as if waiting for an answer will ultimately determine the Tanks’ perception of you and future behavior toward you.”

Gift Gugu Mona
“Our Brilliant Mother

She did not go to school
But she schooled us on many things

She was not qualified
Regardless she gave us quality care

She missed out on her own career
Since we were her full-time job

She was not in a high position
Yet she made things happen

She was not a celebrity
Still, we celebrated her presence in our lives

She never lived life to the fullest
Because she lived for us

She did not have it all
Even so, she was all we had

She was not perfect
Simply the best

This is enough reason to always cherish
Our brilliant Mother!”
Gift Gugu Mona, From My Mother's Classroom: A Badge of Honour for a Remarkable Woman

Laurence Galian, The Sun at Midnight: The Revealed Mysteries of the Ahlul Bayt Sufis

“One thing you need to understand is that holding a position in any area of your life is not a definition of success but an opportunity. An opportunity is a gateway to success but not the same as success.
Whenever you meet yourself in any position, learn how to turn opportunity to success.”
Ojingiri Hannah

“Changing positions is not a sign of weakness but a testament to the strength of one's intellectual curiosity and willingness to learn. Only those who dare to question their own convictions can transcend the limitations of their beliefs and embrace the transformative power of change”
