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

(Received this and couldn't help telling it again :-)

Ni ojo kan , Baba Dare mu ere wa s'ile. Ere yi se pataki nitoriwipe o mo bi enia ba n pa'ro a si gba oluware l'eti.

Dare pada l'ati ile iwe, baba re si bere l'owo re idi t'o fi pe l'ati de'le.

Kaka ki o so otito, o ni awon nse'se asekun ni ile iwe ni.

Lai fi akoko s'ofo, ere yi gba Dare l'eti.

Baba re ran l'eti wipe ere yi se pataki o si mo bi enia ba n pa'ro a si gba onitohun l'eti.

Baba Dare: "Oya, so otito idi t'o fi pe de'le."

Dare: "Ba'mi, mo lo wo sinima ni."

Baba Dare: "Sinima wo?"

Dare: "Ofin mewa."

Lesekanna, Dare gba igba'ti oloyi.

Baba Dare: "O ye k'oju ti e iwo omo mi. N'igba ti mo wa ni ojo ori re emi o se awon nkan palapala wonyi".

L'oju ese, Baba Dare gba igba'ti l'owo ere.

L'esekanna, ere yi sunmo iya Dare osi fun ni igbati oloyi.
