To say ‘I love you’ one must first know how to say the ‘I.’ The meaning of the ‘I’ is an independent, self-sufficient entity that does not exist for the sake of any other person. A person who exists only for the sake of his loved one is not an independent entity, but a spiritual parasite. The love of a parasite is worth nothing.”
― Ayn Rand
“Herein lies the tragedy of the age: not that men are poor, — all men know something of poverty; not that men are wicked, — who is good? not that men are ignorant, — what is Truth? Nay, but that men know so little of men.”

― Terry Pratchett
“the wounded child inside many males is a boy who, when he first spoke his truths, was silenced by paternal sadism, by a patriarchal world that did not want him to claim his true feelings. The wounded child inside many females is a girl who was taught from early childhood that she must become something other than herself, deny her true feelings, in order to attract and please others. When men and women punish each other for truth telling, we reinforce the notion that lies are better. To be loving we willingly hear the other’s truth, and most important, we affirm the value of truth telling. Lies may make people feel better, but they do not help them to know love.”
― bell hooks, All About Love: New Visions
“The tongue can conceal the truth, but the eyes never! You’re asked an unexpected question, you don’t even flinch, it takes just a second to get yourself under control, you know just what you have to say to hide the truth, and you speak very convincingly, and nothing in your face twitches to give you away. But the truth, alas, has been disturbed by the question, and it rises up from the depths of your soul to flicker in your eyes and all is lost.”
― Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita

“Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone one who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.”

― Nicholas Sparks

“We wait and think and doubt and hate. How does it make you feel? The overwhelming feeling is rage. We hate ourself for being unable to be other than what we are. Unable to be better. We feel rage. The feelings must be followed. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an ideologue or a sensualist, you follow the stimuli thinking that they’re your signposts to the promised land. But they are nothing of the kind. What they are is rocks to navigate the past, each on your brush against, ripping you a little more open and they are always more on the horizon. But you can’t face up to the that, so you force yourself to believe the bullshit of those you instinctively know are liars and you repeat those lies to yourself and to others, hoping that by repeating them often and fervently enough you’ll attain the godlike status we accord those who tell the lies most frequently and most passionately. But you never do, and even if you could, you wouldn’t value it, you’d realise that nobody believes in heroes any more. We know that they only want to sell us something we don’t really want and keep from us what we really do need. Maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe we’re getting in touch with our condition at last. It’s horrible how we always die alone, but no worse than living alone.”
― Irvine Welsh, Filth
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
― Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

“Those who wish to seek out the cause of miracles and to understand the things of nature as philosophers, and not to stare at them in astonishment like fools, are soon considered heretical and impious, and proclaimed as such by those whom the mob adores as the interpreters of nature and the gods. For these men know that, once ignorance is put aside, that wonderment would be taken away, which is the only means by which their authority is preserved.”
― Baruch Spinoza, Ethics

― Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
“Isn’t it sad how some people’s grip on their lives is so precarious that they’ll embrace any preposterous delusion rather than face an occasional bleak truth?”

But thou shalt remember the lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18
I can’t be used to obtain the savior and heaven.
-Money agreed.
Here money itself has agreed, I can’t be used to obtain a savior and heaven. What then can I say?
Money is an article which may be used as a universal passport to everywhere except to obtain a savior and heaven – W.F. Kumuyi.
On a leaflet was written, do you know that you’ll outlive the sun? Do you know that when the earth and the stars have all passed away, you’ll just be beginning your endless day – a time without end? Once you are born you’ll never cease to leave. You’ll live forever; you’ll be alive eternally. Eternity has no end. This is solemn and fearful truth. Suppose it were possible to tie a rope from the earth to heaven and an ant were to go to the end and return on this rope, when the ant has done that a hundred times, then a small fraction of eternity has passed. Suppose a small boy were to empty an ocean with a cup, the time it will take the boy to do so is a very tiny part of eternity. If it were possible to gather all the books that have ever been written in all fields of human Endeavour and in all languages, and a student were to read them one by one, the time he’ll spend reading all the books will only amount to a minute fraction of eternity. If a grain of sand at the seashore will represent a year only a small negligible part of eternity will all amount to. If a bird went to sharpen its beak once a year at a mountain, when the bird wears the mountain in this way, only an insignificant part of eternity would have passed. Eternity is the life- time of the never- dying God. And you’ll be alive eternally. Once born, a person remains consciously alive forever.
Eternity doesn’t terminate at the time of death. Death is just another wrung on the ladder of eternity. It’s only a gateway to eternity- eternity in heaven or in hell. There is the resurrection of life and there is the resurrection of damnation. There is no neutral place. These are stark realities you must face.
Choose you this day. Where do you want to spend eternity? You can only answer with an action.
Eternity in hell is sure for every sinner who refuses to repent. Choose you this day. Where’ll you spend eternity? With God in heaven? Then you must repent now. He that covereth his sins shall not prosper but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. – Proverbs 28:13.

Confession (salvation pill)

Step one:
Place your right hand on your navel, close your eyes and imagine Jesus Christ standing before you.

Step two:
Prayer of salvation
Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for saving me. I believe you died for my sake. I surrender all to you. Purify, sanctify and justify me. Erase the consequences of my sins. Make me rapture able. Write my name in the book of life. Have mercy upon me and let your grace continually abide with me. Amen.

Wow!!! You have just signed into the resurrection of life. See how the hosts of angels are jubilating for you.
From now on:
But Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

You shall prosper
…And he (you) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his (your) fruit in his season, his leaves shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper… Psalm 1:1-3

Now therefore fear the lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods your fathers served… Joshua 24:14.

…as for me and my house (family), we will serve the LORD…Joshua 24:15-16
