Now take a look at this proverb and interpret it in your own view.
“Patience can cook a stone”
I love reading proverbs and quotes because they provide me with simple ways of solving huge problems. A one line proverb can explain the contents of a whole discipline, essay, book, etc.
For example,” sticks in a bundle are unbreakable“. This is a proverb that explain the importance of unity: it summarises everything about unity in just a line.
In Africa, proverb is one of the factors that was being used to judge who were the elders in the Society. It was believe that those who knew proverbs had wisdom and intellect that can not be matched by others. That was why it was held with high esteem. Even today, proverbs is well appreciated and use when the need arises.
Therefore, today, we are in to digest the meaning of this proverb and also share it with others to get thier own interpretation of it. You would be surprised to have 100 different interpretations to this proverb.
“Patience can cook a stone”
What is your interpretation of this proverb?
Could this proverb help if put to use solve family, societal, social and political misunderstanding?
I think so. What about you?
If you have waken up today happy, then be grateful for another chance. I woke up today with a news that broke my heart. I received a call from my niece that my in-law died this morning.
This life is transient. You never know when you will depart from it. We work day and night trying hard to earn a living and forget the fundamental reason of our being. We forget that we need to love each other and live peacefully with one another.
We have become creatures of greed always wanting to acquire wealth through good and evil means. We neglect our inborn nature of good and embroiled ourselves in the home of hatred.
O mankind, cease from evil thought and evil acts. Embrace the virtue of love and cultivate the spirit of unity. This is our only chance.
What is your resolution for tomorrow?Mine is to be brave like a lion.
We all want to don’t we? Of course we want to but that voice in our heads is limiting our resolve to act with courage and bravery.
The enemy is in within you not outside of you. Time to control the voice that has limited your potentials.
I once approach a girl whom I like to express my feelings to her. It was a very tough decision, but at last, I mustered the courage and told her what I felt about her. To my surprise, she insulted me and told me never to try that again.
I was surprised and irritated about her actions towards me. And I ask myself ” how does it becomes a crime to express one’s
love to someone?”
I would like to pose this question to you.
Is it a crime to express your love?

When we look at what is happening in north Africa, the middle East and other continents of the world, we would wonder why has mankind finds itself in this precarious situations where people kill and destroy properties worth billion of dollars with no remorse to thier evil actions.
Everyday thousands are being killed. Young children, Toddlers , women, old men and women crossing the deep ocean of Mediterranean looking for sanctuary to evade the evilness of terrorism while weapon industries keep accumulating huge amount of money for selling weapons to countries fighting terrorism.
The media which is supposed to help create awareness about the negative impacts of this evil idea has help to worsen the situation by attributing terrorism to Islam rather than the true reality of what is stands for.
Many people today believe that terrorism is appreciated and supported by islam even though the Muslims are the highest casualties of terrorism.
However, I want to open your mind so as to enable you think rationally by looking at terrorism as an enemy to mankind rather than as an evil perpetrated by Muslims to subdue other world religions.
Terrorist are criminals who hide under Islam to kill people. They are far away from Islam. We must therefore come together to eradicate this malady.
