In endowing us with memory, nature has revealed to us a truth utterly unimaginable to the unreflective creation, the truth of immortality....The most ideal human passion is love, which is also the most absolute and animal and one of the most ephemeral.
In spite of life's distressing circumstances. Never quit to trust in God. For, he (God) will surely take care of you sooner or later. Oh! yes, he can and he will do just that. But, provided you will continually trust in him in toto, scripture reference Nahum 1: 7). Besides, he (God) has already taken care of those whose conditions/circumstances were worser/more miserable than yours e.g. Jabez, Esther, Modecaih among others. So, keep on trusting in him (God) even against all odds.
Ingratitude is thinking nothing of what has been done or given to you by someone else i.e. not feeling bound to show gratitude. I mean, ingratitude is a discreditable lack of gratitude. Yes you heard me right and that is just what it is. So, you've got to show gratitude to others for every bit of their kindness, love, care, gift and stuffs like that which you've already received from them. NOTE: Most importantly, never hesitate to show more and more gratitude to God almighty who do give you all that you ever need (the four necessities of life which are shelter, food, clothing and water) As well, always show gratitude to him (God) even for your life itself. Because, he is the sole giver and taker of every life including yours. Now listen up, you should show gratitude and you've got to resolve to show gratitude to all and sundry/God. For, until you resolve and learn to show gratitude to everyone, you are an ingrate and you will remain an ingrate for life period.

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
It is easy enough to tell the poor to accept their poverty as Gods will when you yourself have warm clothes and plenty of food and medical care and a roof over your head and no worry about the rent. But if you want them to believe youtry to share some of their poverty and see if you can accept it as Gods will yourself!
It is foolish to wish for beauty. Sensible people never either desire it for themselves or care about it in others. If the mind be but well cultivated, and the heart well disposed, no one ever cares for the exterior.
It is fortunate to be of high birth, but it is no less so to be of such character that people do not care to know whether you are or are not.
It is idleness that creates impossibilities; and where people don't care to do anything, they shelter themselves under a permission that it cannot be done.
It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.

It is the common failing of totalitarian regimes that they cannot really understand the nature of our democracy. They mistake dissent for disloyalty. They mistake restlessness for a rejection of policy. They mistake a few committees for a country. They misjudge individual speeches for public policy.

It never ceases to amaze me: we all love ourselves more than other people, but care more about their opinions than our own.
Laughter, while it lasts, slackens and unbraces the mind, weakens the faculties and causes a kind of remissness and dissolution in all the powers of the soul; and thus it may be looked on as weakness in the composition of human nature. But if we consider the frequent reliefs we receive from it and how often it breaks the gloom which is apt to depress the mind and damp our spirits, with transient, unexpected gleams of joy, one would take care not to grow too wise for so great a pleasure of life.
Learn to be pleased with everything with wealth, so far as it makes us beneficial to others with poverty, for not having much to care for, and with obscurity, for being unenvied.

Lest not regret. It is by mere fleeting chance that any of us exist.I do not believe the paths we take and the choices we make are an illusion as some may.Every person can alter things in their own life and even affect others, much like the stars and planets that are already set on a path of there own, affecting many others around them.The life and death of a star or even a galaxy can give us a feeling of insignificance compared to our own lives for who will care once we have all turned to dust; I say care for you the future is jus another moment in time in which we cannot regret.So live your life with no regrets and it shall be a happy one, the thought of death is the most fearful thing there is:hence why most never give it much thought.It is but a consolation dying in your bed many years from now knowing that you left nothing on the table,held nothing back and led your life full without regret.
Liberty is to faction, what air is to fire, an ailment without which it instantly expires. But it could not be a less folly to abolish liberty, which is essential to political life, because it nourishes faction, than it would be to wish the annihilation of air, which is essential to animal life, because it imparts to fire its destructive agency.
