A praiseful life is bound to end up a wondrous or wonderful life. Do I really need to prove that to you? O.K listen up and let's take biblical David as a case study. He (David) throughtout his lifetime was praiseful. I mean, he was accustomed to praising God. That's why, nobody ever praised God as he did. Oh! yes, David praised God wildly to the extent that he once danced naked before God while he was in the mood of praise. And just because of that single act. God took him to be a man after his own heart. Not only that, even till now. David is still the most celebrated king of Israel. No wonder, there was and there is still a city in Israel called king David's city. Now, that's just a tip of what a praiseful life can do or achieve. Therefore, this is a call to praise God as much as you can and as long as you live. Because, you should praise God tirelessly and ceaselessly too. For, if you refuse to praise him continually, then it's obvious you are taking him (God) for granted. But, never take God for granted. For, as far as I'm concerned. God is always worthy of our praises. Unless you think otherwise.

Emeasoba George

'Marvel not at this for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, and come forth they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation' (Jn. 528, 29).

Vernon Schutz

A serious problem in America is the gap between academe and the mass media, which is our culture. Professors of humanities, with all their leftist fantasies, have little direct knowledge of American life and no impact whatever on public policy.

Camille Paglia

A simple enough pleasure, surely, to have breakfast alone with one's husband, but how seldom married people in the midst of life achieve it.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

A string of excited, fugitive, miscellaneous pleasures is not happiness happiness resides in imaginative reflection and judgment, when the picture of one's life, or of human life, as it truly has been or is, satisfies the will, and is gladly accepted.

George Santayana
