My naked thoughts on life

  • The most empowering and disempowering virtue of mankind in not that of having principles and ideals but that of sticking to them always.

  • It is impossible for man to attain perfection but great men strive for perfection.

  • Being intelligent but unwise is like a man with sight but no vision.

  • Times of misfortunes and adversity when all odds are overwhemingly against them are the times for the strong and great to emerge and for pretenders to vanish into oblivion.

  • Real achievements and success can truly be realised by taking action, not for the sake of it, but for a real need to act.

  • Love compromises a man’s intellect, it is not reasonable.

  • Love, especially God’s, vindicates economic sense and theory: when there is so much supply there is so little or no demand.

  • Social status is just packaging, the inner core of a human being is no different.

  • Society tends to define weird as minority or what it doesn’t practise, its called societal naivety.

  • Ignorance is better than naivety because natural ignorance is a result of lack of exposure whereas naivety is a result of lack of exposure to sound independent judgement.

  • Breeding and rearing of earth’s flora brings us closer to and reminds us of God even though they have no trademarks of who owns what.

  • Dreams are similar to plants they need to be watered for survival, with inspiration though.

  • A typical politician is one who scorns sowing but values reaping.

  • It is not what he has but rather what he is that makes a man.

  • Inconsistency with logical conviction is flexibility, inconsistency from the gut is prostitution(or maybe confusion).

  • Whilst it may be acceptable not to practise what you believe, when one judges against something it becomes an obligation to act as such.

  • One can never know, if, by daring to see the world differently, one would be foolishly leading oneself to one’s own demise or would be taking the world to another level of knowledge and wisdom, until judgement time.

  • Because natural inclinations will always be a part of us, dignity is found in embracing natural inclinations that add value and ignoring those that destroy.

  • One way that leads to self-destruction is taking people for granted.

  • Modernisation has lead many to lose sight of the things they treasured and valued the most by taking people and things for granted.

  • The most powerful and real levers of happiness in life are the abstract; they are the source of controversies, disbelief, prejudice and contempt.

  • Life is like a maze: if you come across a dead end, you can always change your course and still make it or like a jiggle saw puzzle: you just have to find the missing pieces that fit, or mathematics: there are different methods to getting to the same solution. (There is always HOPE).

  • Be firm with the loose lest they loosen you.

  • Prejudice is someone’s opinion, foolishness is someone’s opinion.

  • It is very healthy at times to turn a blind eye to reality.

  • Nothing can never change the worth of human life, not even prejudice, education, money or social status.

  • The toilet reflects on the level of development.

  • Consistency is no rigidity, rigidity equals consistency minus reason.

  • Love is not a relationship, it is the sharing of a soul.

  • I do not understand love, but I understand why.

  • Contrary to leaders, politicians are not driven by people’s needs but by talking about people’s needs.

  • Politicians do not want to see problems as inherent challenges but as problems caused by the existence of certain people.

  • Politics, in practice, is a point where personal interests replace personal development.

  • Leadership is a person’s loyalty to a people whereas politics is a people’s loyalty to a person.

  • The lazy and cowardly “expect” things to happen, but the inspired “make” things happen.

  • Inspiration is knowing that it is possible.

  • Being principled and consistent is similar to being warm-blooded, the internal body temperature is never changed by the environment.

  • Heaven is a place where nothing can challenge love; it will be felt in its purest of forms.

  • Love is lovely.

  • Hardwork and wisdom are inversely proportional to talkativeness

  • If two men where to be struck in the head by a falling apple, the normal man would lament the pain, the genius would discover the effect of gravitational force.

  • The greatest challenge to expressing pure love is convention.

  • Getting rid of the prejudice within ourselves is the first step in fighting prejudice against us.

  • God is like a good maths teacher, he would never give his students a calculus problem when still pre-school pupils.

  • Life is like mathematics, different formulae can be employed to arrive at the same answer.

  • AFRICA: a sad tale of well schooled, but highly uneducated, efficient managers masquerading as effective leaders, tofanira kuchinja.

  • It appears the more we know the less we understand.

  • One of the reasons why this world is dominated by a poverty mentality is primarily a result of a lie that the economics academics have taught us that: “resources are scarce”.

  • “Submissive proactivity” is when you take the initiative to submit to God, and not to wait for God to avail Himself.

  • The object of living is not finding meaning in life but creating meaning in life.

  • Most of this world’s problems to can be traced back to extremism, be it fanaticism, racism, tribalism, terrorism except love; love is the only form of extremism that develops.

  • Desperation is good; its a clear sign of passion.

  • Anger is good; its a clear sign of energy

  • Envy and jealousy are good; they are clear signs of desire.

  • Snooping is good; its a clear sign of curiousity.

  • Good is the enemy of great. (borrowed)

  • The more abstract something is, the more powerful it is: a spirit is more powerful than a feeling, a feeling is more powerful than a thought, a thought is more powerful than a body.
