Most Profound Sentences I've Heard This Week

Image
I got these two sentences in totally different situations, while I thought one was ridiculously funny and true in the context of the novel, I thought the other was overwhelming and completely true with regards to my life in general. One was from reading a a chinese online novel and the other was from listening to a christian song. Not until today, did I think that I could associate them together. So, what are these quotes? and how have they had a profound impression on me in this week.


1. People are invincible if they're shameless (Unruly Phoenix Xiayao ~ Mei Xiaoguo)


2. Your kindness makes me whole (Ever be by Kalley Heiligenthal)



Although many people will argue that there are times when feeling shame is good, and say it shows that the people feel remorse for their actions. I still beg to differ because really what are the limits for feeling shame and until when should one feel shame.

Instead of advocating shame, I believe that people's future actions are the best indicators …

Only ten minutes into the video and I felt so refreshed.
Interesting sentence, "our vote to believe a lie is what makes it powerful"

It's no wonder David would say, "I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord", "Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere"

If you are going through a drought or rough time in your life, or feel fed up, this was really refreshing to me.

Be blessed! You are Blessed :D

Panineria: Look What I discovered in Budapest

Image
Foood.

One of my favorite fast foods, is Subway.

I love this Panineria especially, cause I think its similar, you don't get to choose the different fillings, but the vegetables are just as fresh as subways.

Its a little bit pricey at 1650ft to 2450ft, this is actually in the range of 6-8 EUROS.

The address is at Oktogon 4, I've had it twice now, and just had to write about this. Its worth getting a bite of.

And for your viewing pleasure, duibuqi, duibuqi ah, I could only take these few snaps.






By the way, Duibuqi means Sorry in chinese ;) :)

I would rather be kind

Image
She calls him darling
She pats his head She thinks it's pleasing She thinks its nice
She calls him by name
She shakes his hand She thinks it's fitting She thinks it's kind
She's being nice to him He may not understand now But how does this really help him?

She's being genuine with him He may not understand now But what is true will ever appreciate!

 About all these, he has contemplated,
"I would rather be kind, Nice is overrated"


12 Things I learned from Reading Wuxia Novels

Owe no man anything.  Repay your debts. What goes around, comes around. Make sure to sow only good seeds, you never know what the future holds.   No one is above trials and tribulations.  Be ye a xianxia cultivator or an immortal or a mere mortal, everyone has their challenges and tribulations to face. Face it head on, cause we know that by overcoming them, we get stronger. Every test, every challenge is a sign that you are moving on in life.   Diligence always pays off.  I have not read of a main character who just randomly advanced in life, sure they may have had fortuitous encounters, but they didn't let that get to their head. I especially love Jiang Zhe in the Grand master strategist. Its worth noting that he wasn't born with all of his knowledge. Nope, he read to accumulate it, while he was nothing and after he became an official, the author shows us that he doesn't stop reading, nor appreciating and exchanging with other talents when he comes across them.
 Show me …

Keeping sane; Its a crazy crazy world.

She wants to be gentle She wills to be calm She desires to be easy going;
They wont let her be They think she’s ignorant and timid They think she can take nonsense;

War Against Stupidity//Say No to Stupidity

Image
What happens when people are stupid? Innocent persons suffer.

What happens when other people are still stupid? Innocent persons still suffer.

What happens when other people decide to remain stupid? Innocent persons keep suffering.

Who is innocent in this case? The one who is not party to another's stupidity, the one who has never tolerated nor contributed to another's stupidity in any form.



Nobody was born to be stupid, there are some people that were born with mental retardation or developed it afterwards. They are not stupid, they are physiologically ill.

Note my statement above, nobody was born to be stupid. Many of us though as infants and children were stupid and without sense. That's why a baby at a certain age, will put almost anything in its mouth. Then we grow and mature, become more sensible and keep learning and keep being enlightened.

Stupid people choose to be stupid. Stupid people have refused to learn and be enlightened. Stupid people have refused to devel…

BLOGGING DISCLAIMER: Not One is Good Except God

Image
Several months ago, I wrote an article titled 10 things I learned from reading Xianxia novels and I still haven't published. For some reason I felt I was exposing people to the world and the dark side and all that, like its not from the Bible and so on. I made a few realisations not too long ago, which am going to share and due to these realisations also publish my article afterwards. 
No one and nothing is good, except God

No one or nothing is good, except God. As christians we usually try to delineate big sin and small sin. Things like worldly songs and spiritual songs, gospel movies and holly wood movies, dove awards and MTv awards, the Kardashians and some other christian show on TV.
 I've realised that, apart from Jesus, everything else has a downside and an upside. While speaking with a few friends a while back, one made a statement that the truth is absolute and yet truth is relative. Truth is absolute only when its straight from Jesus, cause he is the truth. Take thing…

Dear Human, You Cannot Do Good All By Yourself!

I discovered quite late that the saying, "no man is an island" is really true. I am already 24 years old and just getting what should be the very basics of relationships. Its not that I have had no friends all this while, but most of my relationships with others in the past ran on the premise of "ain't nobody got time for nonsense" - if I wasn't seeing tangible benefits, I was out.I didn't learn dependence on others and didn't think I needed it. I didn't learn to rely and fully trust. You can say, maybe I never found the right people, but I think the problem was that I never approached my relationships the proper way. I was a strong, I can do bad and good all by myself, no wasting time with others kind of person. This mentality, which is something society generally accepts is quite dangerous. We ask ourselves, "what am I getting from this friendship or relationship?" Or "how is this person of use to me?"  And when we find peo…

The Virtue of Shamelessness

I grew up hearing things like, "shame on you", "you should be ashamed of yourself" "You don't feel shame?", or name calling such as "Olodo" which means dummy in yoruba language.
Not just in primary school, but even in professional circles, I speak for myself as a medical student, experiencing rounds in a Nigerian hospital environment. A DOWNRIGHT NEGATIVE EMOTIONShame according to Merriam Webster is, "a painful emotion caused by the consciousness of guilt, shortcoming or impropriety"
Shameless still according to Merrian Webster is, "having no shame; insensible to disgrace" As humans, we all experience varied emotions which can be 'seemingly' divided into positive and negative emotions. We would all agree that joy, hope and love, for instance are well desired emotions and do lift up one's spirit and lighten the atmosphere. Sadness, grief or anger on the other hand, dampen one's spirits.Why I say 'seemi…
