After a while boring can become interesting. Use a dictionary for the big words. Read sincerely and carefully! Read and develop your memory! Memory is developed with attention to details. Read 10, 20, 50 books, make it a big reading binge! Read for your mind and soul. Read for yourself! Read and think about good and bad. Read about human actions, good and bad. Read truth about history and develop your intellect! In 1440 the printing press was invented! It gave many books to the world! Appreciate that gift! Read about different people and eras! Read about Charles Darwin, about Ivan the Terrible, about Blaise Paskal, about Leo Tolstoy, about Abraham Lincoln, about Christopher Columbus, about Vladimir Lenin about Mahatma Gandhi and about others!!!

Be YOURSELF. In life, it doesn't matter from where you are coming, where you are going or how you are going to get there? Aside from what you want to accomplish, what kind of a person do you want to become as a result of all the work and effort? People who achieve great things in life are invariably those people who give a lot of thought to their own evolution and growth. These people are like master craftsmen, constantly shaping and polishing their lives to become more worthwhile and important. Great thinkers become exceptional by design, not by accident. What really motivates them? I wonder what, rather who, motivated these self-made men and great minds like Walt Disney, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Thomas Edison, Isaac Newton! It’s difficult to think what will motivate you. We are often asked this question- 'Who is your role model?' I think hard. Really hard. I think of great people and ask myself, will this great philosopher really influence me? Do I want to become like him? In my head, the answ ...
Don't Quit! (a little long, but good!) Too ordinary – Mahatma Gandhi was an ordinary citizen who changed the history of a nation. He is India’s greatest hero! Not wanted – Michael Jordan was dropped from his high school basketball team. He became one of the greatest basketball players of all time! You don’t have what it takes – Michael Jackson was the 7th child of a poor African American family. He became the King of Pop! Not good enough – Thomas Edison was once called by one of his teachers too stupid to learn. He told the young Edison to go to the field so he could make use of his pleasing personality. Defeated – Abraham Lincoln lost elections 8 times while running for various posts. He became known as the great emancipator! Denied – The Beatles were rejected by their first record label because “guitar music was passé.” Failed – Walt Disney was fired from his newspaper job because of a lack of imagination. Rejected – Jesus Christ gave hope to humanity and promised salvation. Som ...

Today I was told: "How can I help you if I cannot help myself?" after I did so much for that person. Well, you can by forcing yourself to put yourself together for people in need of a helping hand. This allows you to do the impossible, enabling you to see the strength you never thought you had, giving you hope to get out of the worst times. All the legends in the world who made our world a better place had problems and yet managed to save our world and make it easier to live life. Best examples: Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Mikhail Gorbachev, William Wilberforce, Nelson Mandela,Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Thomas Jefferson, and lets not forget Helen Keller - despite her disability of both deafness and blindness, she learned to read and write, and helped improve the welfare of deaf people. Hence, selfishness is something we shouldn't expose to the world whereby people struggled and died for us to learn how to HELP EACH OTHER WHEN IN NEED! Think about it, if 2 people . ...
From Milton Hershey of Hershey Chocolate Company (whose businesses went bankrupt three times before he finally made it big), Henry Ford (who failed twice before Ford Motor Corporation was born) to Abraham Lincoln (who lost seven times in the Presidential elections before he finally made it), all successful people have been the biggest failures at one point or the other in their lifetimes. Every person in this world has had failures, some small, some big. There is no individual on this planet who has been a born winner and none who has never experienced any failure – from Steve Jobs to Bill Gates to Mahatma Gandhi to Nelson Mandela, all legendary icons have been as legendary in being failures at some point or the other in their lives. But the one common quality amongst all of them has been, that they’ve never given up. The resolve to fight each failure – however harsh it might be – with conviction is the attitude that these losers have had. And that’s exactly the attitude that you should cherish ...
Throughout written history, many sovereign countries have been commandeered by an elite group of private financial bankers who have long ago severed themselves from the reality of Earth. These men are the cause for nearly every major tragedy in written history... the genocide of European Druids, the genocide of Native Americans, the genocide of Jewish mysticism, the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest, the murder of nearly all past awakened souls... Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Princess Diana Frances, and more... All of these beings were sacrificed by the financial elite. To understand how we got here, we must look at written history and attempt to discern the truth within ourself. In the spot light: America Civil War of 1861-1865 District of Columbia Organization Act of 1871 Federal Reserve Act of 1913 As of 1871 the United States of America transformed into a corporation. I challenge you: Attempt to see another vision of history... One where 60 mil ...

[tbs 정오뉴스] ▶(BBC Opening) Obama Hails Mandela President Barack Obama has hailed Nelson Mandela as one of the giants of history in a powerful address at the former South African president's memorial service on Tuesday.

Mandela Memorial: World Leaders Eulogise Madiba By: George Agba, Raliat Ahmed-Yusuf on December 11, 2013 - 3:34am World leaders yesterday at the late Nelson Mandela’s memorial in South Africa honoured the late icon, eulogising his life and achievements. United States of America president, Barack Obama and five other presidents were among world leaders who paid tributes to the first black president of South Africa. President Obama in his tribute said, “The world will never see the likes of Mandela again”, calling on the people of Africa and the young ones around the world to make his life’s work their own. He compared the late anti-apartheid leader to Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln. “Nothing he achieved was inevitable,” Obama said. “In the arc of his life, we see a man who earned his place in history through struggle and shrewdness, persistence and faith. He tells us what’s possible not just in the pages of dusty history books, but in our own lives as well.” Ob ...

MANDELA, MANDELA, THE GREAT Nelson Mandela IS DEAD. Other heroes went before him like Steve Biko. I am certain they will converse in Heaven about accomplishing their mission on earth. Mandela, the unknown prophet of God. Just like his counter part Martin Luther King. Mandela surpassed all Africans great heroes like Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkruma, Sekou Toure, Jomo Kenyetta, William V.S. Tubman, Houpheot Boigny, Haile Selassie, Thomas Sankara etc. He is now in the unique league of the World Greatest, heroes, Champions and Leaders; Mother Theresa,Harriet Tubman, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Mao Tse-tung,Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, and Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev. We could also put him in the league with great heroes and warriors like Julius Caesar,Napoleon Bonaparte and King James of England. I won't hesitate to include him in the class of Biblical Heroes an leaders such Abraham, Moses, Joshua, especially Joseph, Cleopatra, Esther, David, Mose ...
Madiba has joined the elite league of fallen leaders.Up there he is with Mahatma Gandhi, Patrice Lumumba,Joshua Nkomo,Chico Mendes,Malcalm X,Martin Luther King,Tupac Amaru(not to be mistaken with Tupac the rapper),Geronimo,Samora Marchel,Abraham Lincoln,Haile Salassie,Steve Biko,Oskar Schindler and the list goes on...
Mandela has gone to a place where he wll meet Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln,Princess Diana,Steve Biko n Hector Pieterson and other icons whom have made change in the world.
Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba,Tom Mboya, Wangari Maathai..etc...are all remembered not because of their AFFLUENCE, but because of their INFLUENCE. Ponder that.

If great influential people of the past were still alive who made a difference in this world like Susan B. Anthony, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Charles Dickens, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Walt Disney, Michael Jackson, Jim Henson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, L. Frank Baum, Mark Twain, Oscar Schindler, Alex Haley, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and anyone else you can think of that is influential in our culture. I would shake all these people's hands for inspiring me to be the man I am today. As for the people like the founder of the KKK, Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Joesph Stalin. Um, Let's just say in the kindest way possible we wouldn't see eye to eye on things and I wouldn't ask them over for dinner anytime soon!
Today l mourn the passing of a great general, a Vietnamese stateman that l held in high esteem. General Vo Nguyen Giap was the architect of modern Vietnamese warefare and lead the Vietnamese to victory against agressors. He, like most of the heroes in my heart are rebels with a course. Great personalities like *** Chi Minh, Golda Mier, Mahatma Gandhi, Lee Kuan Yew, Lim Kit Siang, Aung San Suu Kyi, Abraham Lincoln had always my role model for justice and freedom. May the great General be called into the rolls of immortality always respected by all Vietnamese and a small group if nguoi nuoc nguai like me.

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” ― Oscar Wilde “Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?” ― Abraham Lincoln “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.” ― Napoleon Bonaparte “The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche “I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects.” ― Oscar Wilde “Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.” ― G.K.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION IS UNIQUE AND ORIGINAL. (To Sylvia Blyden) "Mummy", "pay master", mentor, "Tunde Scot ee aunty". Me ar taya seff. The power of an individual whose conviction, determination and passion builds the resolve to relentlessly pursue a higher cause that makes this world a better place. Behind every major movement is an individual driven to work for a higher cause. But as I study biographies and stories of great men and women of achievements, almost all of them started out as being reluctant. They had doubts. They had insecurities. They were uncomfortable with uncertainties. But over time, their reluctance gives way to resolve. Then they pour their heart, mind and soul towards the pursuit of a higher cause and succeed. Such are men and women like Nelson Mandela,Elen Johnso Sallif, Ernest Bai Koroma, Obama, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln and William Wilberforce. They started out reluctant at first. But they saw the opportunity. They felt the urgency of the moment. They real . ...
Looking back over our rich history, there is a wealth of great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Nelsen Mandela, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Sir Whinstone Churchill, Malcolm X, JFK, and Mother Teresa. None of these giants of history spent their lives dedicated to building iconic structures in the physical. Instead their lives continue to be a great inspiration to the generations that follow of what can be achieved when our lives are dedicated to the welfare of others. Some of these iconic figures changed an entire nation, others reshaped the world we live in, but the one common thread they share is their service to others. Big fancy buildings can be nice, but these buildings don’t change lives. Providing shelter for the homeless, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and visiting the sick and imprisoned. That’s where the power is. Don’t tell me you love others. Love is a verb. So show me! Everybody love everybody!
Quotes for Today - “For three things I thank God every day of my life: thanks that he has vouchsafed me knowledge of his works; deep thanks that he has set in my darkness the lamp of faith; deep, deepest thanks that I have another life to look forward to--a life joyous with light and flowers and heavenly song.” ― Helen Keller “Life is meant to be fun, and joyous, and fulfilling.” ― Jim Henson, It's Not Easy Being Green “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” ― Helen Keller “People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.” ― Abraham Lincoln “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ― Dalai Lama XIV “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
Here is a man who is an epitome of loyalty and simplicity. The thing about the President’s critics is that they just cannot accept that someone with his simplicity can be their President. This is the Saul Complex. Saul could not accept the fact that somebody as simple as David could be favoured by God. And just like Saul threw the spear at David out of uncontrollable jealousy, these critics are out to throw any kind of spear to see which hits the target, hence all their lies about the President. Let me end by saying that the President is a simple man but simplicity is not naivety. If simplicity were to be naivety, then the world would not be where it is today because it is simple men like Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Kwame Nkrumah, who have shaped the world that we live in by simplifying what others have complicated.

As the snake, the sixth in the 12-animal cycle, slithers in to usher in a new year in the Chinese calendar, investors can take heart that while the euro-zone crisis remains unresolved, the worst may be over – the US has avoided its fiscal cliff and fears of a hard landing in China have not materialized. In the West, the serpent may have a star role in original sin but in Chinese mythology it represents wisdom, resourcefulness and intelligence. The kind of traits displayed by famous people born in the year of the Snake, including Mao Zedong, Lu Xun, Mahatma Gandhi, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln and Pablo Picasso. Unfortunately, the Year of the Snake seems to have a dismal record when it comes to stock markets.

FOR STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN FORTUNATE TO CLEAR THE EXAMINATIONS CA. V. Murali, Ex Chairman, Board of Studies Please don’t lose heart. Sometimes, not getting what you want may become your greatest turning point. Sometimes, God upsets your plans to execute His plans for you. Hence, dear students, please evolve a long range vision and combine it with result oriented action. Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare. Vision plus action is progress. Act today in sync with tommorrow’s vision. I urge you to put your heart and soul into your study. After all failures are the Stepping Stonesto success. Napolean Hill said “ In every adversity there is the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit. Defeat is never permanent, unless you accept it as such.” Great men like Robert Bruce, Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi went through trials and tribulations before they triumphed. Thomas Alva Edison failed ten thousand times before perfecting the electric lightbulb. So recoup yo ...
Sometimes it's difficult for me to remember that we live in a world that killed great men of our history such as Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, and John F. Kennedy. What kind of a world do we live in?
Think of the far-reaching consequences set in motion by men and women who raised their standards and acted in accordance with them, deciding they would tolerate no less. History chronicles the inspiring examples of people like Leonardo da Vinci, Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Albeit Einstein, Cesar Chavez, Soichiro Honda, and many others who took the magnificently powerful step of raising their standards. The same power that wasavailable to them is available to you, if you have the courage to claim it. Changing an organization, a company, a country—or a world—begins with the simple step of changing yourself. vous dit tony

On this date in 1983, the legislative bill establishing Martin Luther King Day as a national holiday was signed. The official holiday, on the third Monday of January, began in 1986. It was the first new American holiday since 1948, when Memorial Day was created as a "prayer for peace" day. Also it was only the second national holiday in the twentieth century (the other was Veterans Day, created as Armistice Day in 1926 to honor those who died in World War I). King is the only American besides George Washington to have a national holiday designated for his birthday (those of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee and others are celebrated in some states but not nationwide). Internationally, King was one of the few social leaders of any country to be honored with a holiday (Mahatma Gandhi's birthday is observed in India). Such standing by a member of a country's racial minority is almost unheard of. Usually, the honor is reserved for military or religious figures. When President Ronald Reagan sign ...
D problem with any dept, organizatn, family, state, nation or church is leadership.

Greatness in our materialistic world is defined as fame, popularity, scholastic or economic achievement, and notoriety. GREATNESS MAY RESULT FROM THESE QUALITIES, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE DEFINITION OF GREATNESS. Greatness may best be defined by the people throughout history whom we consider great. Among those who would be considered great in the context of their influence and impact on human society are such names as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth, Jesse Owens, Florence Nightingale, Helen Keller, Pablo Picasso, Sam Walton, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, the Wright Brothers, Steven Jobs, and Bessie Coleman.

You lead, I’ll follow I recently read an article listing 10 great leaders in World History. The list was interesting on various levels. Here are the 10: Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, Mao Zedong, Mahatma Gandhi, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Muhammad, Nelson Mandela, Julius Caesar and Winston Churchill. My definition of a leader may be different than the author and would not include some of these on the list. A great leader is one who has many followers. It is true that many people followed Hitler, Castro, Zedong and Caesar, but at one point along the way the people weren’t given an option. If you chose to not follow any of those four it would not go well for you, up to and including the forfeiture of your life. Lincoln, although revered today, was not that popular during his presidency and in fact those who did not want to follow him were eventually forced to through a bloody war. The most interesting thing about the above list wasn’t who it included, but who it didn’t. Based on his followers ...

I have always wondered…… look at what God gave and what certain people in the world made of it……… We strike him with Infantile Paralysis and we got a Franklin D. Roosevelt, the only President of United States to be elected to four terms of office. We break young man’s heart that he has no talent of any kind, and continue to enjoy his cartoons for four decades; we call him R.K.Laxman. We deafen a genius composer who gave us some of the world’s most beautiful music and we got a Beethoven. We gave Helen Keller blindness, and she gave us Braille. We burnt him so severely in a schoolhouse fire that the doctors said he would never walk and we got a Glenn Cunningham, who set a world record in 1934 for running the mile in a 4 minute 6.7 seconds. We give him a country full of people who don’t have power-economic or military, to fight a powerful enemy, and we get a Mahatma Gandhi. God crippled him and we got a Sir Walter Scott. We landed him in abject poverty and we got an Abraham Lincoln. We subjec ...

A few quotes on religion from some really messed-up guys who probably didn't think it was necessary to own a gun... "This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness." ~Dalai Lama "When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion." ~Abraham Lincoln "My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him."~Mahatma Gandhi "I am a deeply religious nonbeliever - this is a somewhat new kind of religion."~Albert Einstein Wow...no bible, no 2 hours of mass, no sacramental wine and *** They don't have a Pope or a Bishop or anything! What a bunch of lost souls! Let's pray for them... ;oP (JK)

"Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think." Martin Luther King, Jr. "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein I just told someone YESTERDAY, "Think about someone else other than yourself. Think about their position. I may not have a "pot to tee' in or a window to throw it out" but I STILL BELIEVE if I do right long enough one day I will look up and see the SUN SHINING in my life. "When I am getting ready to reason with a man, I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself and what I am going to say and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say." Abraham Lincoln "Man falls from the pursuit of the ideal of plan living and high thinking the moment he wants to multiply his daily wants. Man's happiness really lies in contentment." Mahatma Gandhi
