Some of my favorite quotes

“If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in character. If there be beauty in character, there will be harmony in the home. If there be harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. If there be order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.” - Confucius

“Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight.” - Helen Keller (1880-1968) American Writer

“Democracy, like liberty, justice and other social and political rights are not given. They are earned through courage, resolution and sacrifice.” - Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma

“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'” – Anonymous

African and Proud - Yes O!

Here is a musical collaboration between Wyclef Jean, 2Face Idibia and Sound Sultan... in the midst of all our so-called troubles, the only thing we should not let anyone, not even the crooked politicians, take away from us is our pride in ourselves, our rich culture, in who we are as a people. We may not be at the promised land yet, but always remember that all these experiences we are going through currently are not unique to us, and like all things, it shall come to pass - it may not be at the pace we would like, but slowly but surely...
