To be listened to is, generally speaking, a nearly unique experience for most people. It is enormously stimulating. It is small wonder that people who have been demanding all their lives to be heard so often fall speechless when confronted with one who gravely agrees to lend an ear. Man clamors for the freedom to express himself and for knowing that he counts. But once offered these conditions, he becomes frigthened.

– Golda MeirRate it:
To be or not to be, is being here in the now if you are not here now, you are not in the now. Since we are sure about now to be here now, but not later. And since, there are no guarantees in life. All that we have is the now to be here, or not to be here. Given, that the evil forces of death will sign our death warrant to be or to not to be.”

Thus, you've got to be passion driven in all you do. For, to be passionate is even better off than to be fortunate. Because, passion initiates and guarantees fortunes. That's just that.
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
To be persuasive, we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible, we must be truthful.
