Amit Ray, Nonviolence: The Transforming Power

“The uncertainties in life are so uncertain for us to determine the kind woe we shall be entangled in in the next future. When you stay dormant, your life is at risk; when you dare to take a step, you take a step to take a risk. We have a choice. Yes! a choice to choose to dare to get to our real reasons on earth or to choose to live in mediocrity and conformity, but, we ought to note that, it is riskier to risk nothing when the life we live is always at risk.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Imagine how many suicide victims would still be with us, if only the right person said the right thing at the right time.”
Wayne Gerard Trotman

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“My joy is that there is no such world at all, but that the substance of life is in everyone! There is no reason to be troubled because we are absurd, is there? For we really are: we are absurd, frivolous, we have bad habits, we're bored, we don't know how to look around ourselves, we don't know how to understand, we are all like this, all of us, you, and I, and everyone! And you aren't offended by my telling you straight to your faces that you are absurd? There is the basic stuff of life in your, isn't there? You know, I believe it's sometimes even good to be ridiculous. Yes, much better. People forgive each other more readily and become more humble, we can't understand everything at once, we can't begin with perfection! To reach perfection there must first be much we do not understand. And if we understand too quickly we will probably not understand very well. I tell this to you who have been able to understand so much and - do not understand.'

p. 577”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Idiot

“If you have the understanding to first notice the signs, continue with the courage to follow them.”
Nikki Rowe

“SENSES, APPEARANCE, ESSENCE and EXISTENCE
The world we see with our senses is very different than the world we see through our essence. Our senses perceive the world of appearance. Our essence perceives the deeper layers of existence. The first step of perceiving the world of essence is to have no goal other than to understand. "Understanding" has to be the ultimate goal. Only then, can we solve the problems.”
Petek Kabakci

“To waste one hour is a proof that you lack understanding of life.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

“There are different kinds of birds and there are different situations and places to find these birds. Some of these birds choose to eat carcass and some prefer fresh meat. Some eat from backyards and some will take their food far from sight. There are those who soar higher and least live on short and common trees and there are those who wouldn’t mind sleeping on any tree. There are those who exhibit their dexterity on the ground to the joy and admiration of all people, and there are those who make people raise their heads and strain their eyes before they see them. There are those whose appearance comes with awe, and there those who would pass without people taking a second look at them in admiration. There are those whose voices are a wake-up call and there are those whose sounds give reasons to ponder! There are those who sing sweet melodies and there are those whose sounds threaten. There are those who are for special meals and occasions, and there are those who are fit for the base of any pot at all. There are those who though are humble and friendly, yet when you go beyond your boundary, they will show how they are hungry! There are those who dive amazingly and there are those who just swim and move around in water! Life is just like that; different people, different values and different functions!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“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!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Mehmet Murat ildan

Carl Sagan
“Those who make uncritical observations or fraudulent claims lead us into error and deflect us from the major human goal of understanding how the world works. It is for this reason that playing fast and loose with the truth is a very serious matter.”
Carl Sagan, Broca's Brain: Reflections on the Romance of Science

“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

“It is only when people don’t know history well that they judge the present so blindly in ignorance!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Debasish Mridha
“If you know the results, why will you try to solve the problem? If you know the meaning of life, why will you try to understand it? Sometimes it is better not to know the answer.”
Debasish Mridha

“To be fruitful is to understand the process of growth”
Sunday Adelaja

“You know what? Yesterday will never come back. Close your eyes and see something! You shall neither see yesterday nor tomorrow. Open your eyes and you shall see today! Open your eyes to realities then! Today is all you have to make the change! Today is the day you have to prepare for a better tomorrow. Arise and see! Today is the day you have to make the best use of the lessons of yesterday! Open your eyes and see today! Today is all you have to make a change. Awake and see why you have today! Arise and realize why you woke up today! Make today your day!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Romi Florea

“To understand the universe around us, we must understand the universe within us.”
Armin Houman

“I have grown to understand this about life: true life is just one and whoever misses it never sees the true life; great and true chance in life comes just once in a lifetime and anyone who misses it always seek for chances that are not all that the true one, except the one God can provide; true God is one and any person who serves two doesn’t really know how to truly serve the true one; true love in the heart is just one and anyone who has two shall only have a conflict with the true one; true understanding is just one and anyone who has two is not far away from misunderstanding; what is truly genuine is always the genuine one and anything else is just the opposite of the genuine one; true meaning of life is one and anyone who misses it shall never live a life that truly means life!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“One day I shall sit down and ponder!
I shall ponder over how I used to wander
But I shall never wander anymore

A day is coming! Oh yes a day is coming!
A day is coming when I shall see redemption
No more wandering! Oh yes! No more wandering! A day is surely coming

One day I shall sit down and remember!
I shall remember how arduous the journey was
But I shall never see an arduous journey anymore

A day is coming! Oh yes a day is coming!
A day is coming when there shall never be a journey to take
No more journeys! Oh yes! No more journeys! A day is surely coming


One day I shall sit down and count the footprints!
I shall count the footprints of the tyrants and the oppressors
But I shall never see tyranny and oppression anymore

A day is coming! Oh yes a day is coming!
A day is coming when I shall see redemption
Nor more tyranny! Oh yes! No more oppression! A day is surely coming



One day I shall sit down and think about the rejections.
I shall remember the rejections from people far and near
But I shall never experience their rejections anymore

A day is coming! Oh yes a day is coming!
A day is coming when I shall never see rejection
No more rejections! Oh yes! No more rejections! A day is surely coming

One day I shall come to an understanding!
I shall come to understand the things that were far from my understanding
And they shall never be far from my understanding anymore

A day is coming! Oh yes a day is coming!
A day is coming when I shall have an understanding
An understanding! Oh yes! An understanding! A day is surely coming”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“The end is a mystery, therefore think and act well now! Be robust, be focused and run the race with tenacity! When you fall, arise, learn the lessons and use them well! Learn everyday for life is an arena for learning! No one can ever be perfect! When you are speeding, be careful, for excessive speed can sometimes be dangerous, though it can get you to your journey’s end faster, and it can also make you avoid certain attacks! Sometimes the best things come delayed; when there are delays, be patient and wait, for not all things that delay are dead; time will speak with time! When it is going smoothly, watch out never to let comfort lead you astray, for because of comfort, so many people are not who they were truly meant to be, and they are in wrong tracks to an end of no glory! When darkness comes, remember life is about day and night! When day comes, note that darkness puts people to sleep; use the day well then whilst you have it! No day stays forever and no night is ever permanent! Never rejoice because someone falls during the day for you do not know what will happen to you in the night! Serendipity exists, but try your very best to do all you can to ensure that you never faint nor fall, for life is a battle! Stand for what is a must and do what is truly needed to be done! Be vigilant enough never to slumber nor be trapped in another track! Guard your tongue, for no one can hear it until you say it! Mind your actions, for it is the oil that keeps your lamps brighter for a good journey! Mind your mind for it is an engine for life, and a good remote control that controls the entire body to a good or a bad end! Guard your heart, for it is the house of your being! Remember, however in all things that human strength, efforts, wisdom and understanding is always limited! Ask God therefore for that little insight and understanding to get to your journey’s end successfully with a successful story so as to win that awesome praises from His angels! You are here for a purpose! We shall all meet the end, but how we shall meet it is truly a mystery! As you take the journey, mind the end!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Friedrich Nietzsche
“The more thoroughly a person understands life, the less he will mock, though in the end he might still mock the "thoroughness of his understanding.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human

“Stay focused! Know where you are heading towards in life with your life! People going somewhere don't just go anywhere!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“The people who truly understand life are not the ones who study it. They're the ones who enjoy it.”
