“There is a fine line between:
ego and confidence,
weakness and cowardice,
piety and self-righteousness,
lust and infatuation,
patience and procrastination,
contentment and apathy,
fear and hatred,
greed and ambition,
sin and pleasure,
want and need,
and hope and delusion.

There is also a fine line between:
sleep and death,
rest and idleness,
envy and desire,
noise and music,
sight and blindness,
respect and idolatry,
poverty and crime,
corruption and equality,
tyranny and despair,
religion and exploitation,
and freewill and destiny.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

“You are no greater than the thoughts you carry,
the knowledge you acquire,
the desires you harbor,
and the experiences you cherish.

You are no better than the friends you keep,
the books you read,
the heroes you admire,
and the obstacles you overcome.

You are no higher than the wisdom you retain,
the understanding you gain,
the faith you practice,
and the love you give.

You are no larger than the powerless you help,
the poor you enrich,
the weak you embolden,
and the fearful you inspire.

You are no bigger than the opponents you face,
the alliances you broker,
the battles you fight,
and the enemies you defeat.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

“I was taught by family at ten.
I was taught by books at twenty.
I was taught by enemies at thirty.
I was taught by nature at forty.
I was taught by life at fifty.

At ten, I was foolish.
At twenty, I was naïve.
At thirty, I was alert.
At forty, I was experienced.
At fifty, I was wise.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

“The world is elevated by these noble wonders:
wisdom and knowledge,
intuition and understanding,
diligence and excellence,
commitment and determination,
answers and solutions,
character and destiny,
mercy and compassion,
joy and happiness,
faith and courage,
honor and diplomacy,
peace and contentment,
kindness and love,
and God and spirituality.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

“The weak forgive none,
the strong forgive some,
the great forgive many,
and the enlightened forgive all.

Trust unites,
fear divides,
mercy heals,
and love conquers.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
