The only antidote to stagnancy in the race of attainment is generosity. Giving begets receiving. He who does not give doesn't deserve to be given to; it is unjust for a stingy man to receive. When you give, you don't lose what you have given but have invested into your future, 'cause the hand that receives from you is indebted to you and will pay in the future.

It is contain in the scripture that, " if you have faith as little as a monster seed, when you say to this mountain move and be casted it shall obey thee" but i love one part of the bible that added more light to this, that "faith without work is powerless(useless)" permit me to add in my opinion therefore that; "faith without work, though it might be as big as a mountain cannot move a small circumstances or command or a minuet success as little as a monster seed. learn to make active your faith, by puting more action to it than word.

When I was a child, I thought unforgiveness was a virtue; when I grew up I learnt that it isn't, but forgiveness is. Maturity and experiences taught me three things about this ungodliness (unforgiveness) viz it leads to 1. self imprisonment 2. unaccomplishement, failure and unanswered prayers 3. wrinkles, the agent of old age! Then I discovered that forgiveness is the opposite of these, So I vowed never to harbor grudges against any one.

in my opinion, i believe greatness is measured in ones qualitative contribution on his/her fellow humane, it is more than "knowing what do do", "being able to do", or "charisma". because your praise can only be sang by the people you have help and affected.If therefore your praise must be heard atop the ladder of greatness, you then must help someone climb there, to sing your praise.

I believe a failure is that man that remains on the ground when he falls because he fears if he raises he might fall again, or that man that accept what people think of or call him, better still he is that man that thinks "that task is too big for me", " I can't Possibly do that", "It is not yet my time/turn". Because all these elude a man of the prize that awaits the activist.

in my opinion, there is in every man more than a drop of greatness. there is a whole reservoir of greatness when a man combines together the power of genuine thought with diligent, commitment and action.

Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet"; and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, "Love your neighbor as yourself." Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.
