And refuse to bear grudges against anyone right here or out there. In otherwords, forgive all things and everyone. 3. Never over do anything, have a limit and keep to it. 4. Don't take yourself and life so seriously. For, you ought not to do that. I mean, disregard/overlook somethings sometimes. 5. Never waste your precious energy/time on gossip or habits like that. Rather, utilize/maximize your God-given energy and time. 6. Dream big, be a visionary and dare to pursue your dream and vision unyieldinly until you realize them. 7.

Any other thing which you think that you need to live comfortably will be given unto you by God in due course i.e. at the right and proper time. 8. Emancipate yourself from the issues of the past. I mean, stop living in your past life and mistakes . For, living in your past is most likely to ruin your present happiness and future success. 9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. So, don't hate anyone. Do love all and sundry as much as you can. 10. Strive to live in peace with everyone. For, peace is better off than war or conflict. 11. In case you don't know, no one else is responsible for your happiness except your own self. Yes! you heard me right. So, always be happy and never sad. 12. You've got to realize that life is a school and you are meant to learn daily. Moreover, challenges are simply part of life. They do appear just for awhile and then fade away like flowers. Thus, never mind your challenges. 13. Always smile, laugh and share all you have with someone else/others. Beause, you've got to be doing that. Never forget, givers never lack. 14. Conclusively, dare to believe in God almighty and do believe he can do all things. Besides, believe in your own self i.e. be self confident. For, it is expected of you. That's just a piece of advice and words of encouragement for you.

Emeasoba George

It citizenship would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognized as citizens in any one State of the Union, the right to enter every other state whenever they pleased, singly or in companies, without pass or passport, andwithout obstruction, to sojourn there as long as they pleased, to go where they pleased at every hour of the day or night without molestation, unless they committed some violation of the law for which a white man would be punished it citizenship would give them the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went. And all this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State.

Roger B. Taney

Mother Theresa

It's utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death. I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more.

Anne Frank, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, July 15, 1944

Now is the winter of our discontent Made glorious summer by this sun of York, And all the clouds that loured upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths, Our bruised arms hung up for monuments, Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, Our dreadful marches to delightful measures. Grim-visaged war hath smoothed his wrinkled front And now, instead of mounting barbed steeds To fright the souls of fearful adversaries, He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber To the lascivious pleasing of a lute. But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass I, that am rudely stamped, and want love's majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph I, that am curtailed of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deformed, unfinished, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them,-- Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun.

William Shakespeare

I am old, so give me your peace. Wisdom comes with age.

Hammurabi

Peace is not something you wish for. It's something you make. It's something you do. It's something you are. And, it's something you give away.

Robert Fulghum, USA Author, (in a letter by Kayla Mueller)

Indecision regarding the choice among pleasures temporarily robs a man of inner peace. After due reflection, he attains joy by turning away from the lower pleasures and seeking the higher ones.

I Ching

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God-the rest will be given.

Mother Theresa
