Luxury Living Low Thinking Simple Living High Thinking
Baba Tunde Ojo-Olubiyo
He’s crying a little now, from the shock and the shame and the fear and the humiliation and the pain. Tunde recognizes those feelings; he’s known them since the first day Enuma touched him. He has written in the scribbled notes for his book: “At first we did not speak our hurt because it was not manly. Now we do not speak it because we are afraid and ashamed and alone without hope, each of us alone. It is hard to know when the first became the second.
Naomi Alderman (The Power)
Tunde tries to imagine what it'd be like to have one. A power you can't give away or trade. He feels himself yearning for it, repulsed by it. He reads online forums where men say that if all the men in the world had one everything would be back to the way it ought to be. They're angry and afraid. He understands that.

One Must Always Remember That Birth, Old Age, Disease And Death Comes At Any Moment In Regardless Of Whom We Are Or What We Have In Forms Of Material Possession.
Baba Tunde Ojo-Olubiyo
Lõppude lõpuks on iga inimene just see, mida ta mõtleb. Sinu tunded on su mõtete orjad ja sa ise oled oma tunnete ori.
Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia)
Fiecare om trebuie să lase ceva în urma lui atunci când moare, așa spunea bunicul meu. Un copil, o carte sau un tablou, o casă, un zid înălțat de mâna lui sau o pereche de pantofi. Sau o grădină. Ceva ce mâna ta a atins în așa fel, încât sufletul tău să aibă unde se refugia atunci când îți sosește ceasul; iar când oamenii se uită la copacul ori la floarea pe care le-ai sădit, tu ești acolo. Nu contează ce faci, spunea bunicul, atâta timp cât schimbi un lucru față de cum era înainte ca tu să-l atingi transformându-l în ceva care să îți semene de îndată ce-ți iei mâna de pe el. Deosebirea dintre omul care doar tunde iarba și un grădinar adevărat constă în atingere, spuse el. Cel care tunde iarba e ca și inexistent, grădinarul va trăi o veșnicie.
Ray Bradbury
The other women take it up and the street is filled with the sound, the city is filled with it; the country- Tunde thinks- must be full of this joyful warning. He is the only man here, the only one filming. This revolution feels like his personal miracle, a thing to overturn the world.
Naomi Alderman (The Power)
One Must Choose Among Both Parties Either To Be A Wise Man That Die To Live In Righteousness And Blissfulness For Eternity Or Be A Foolish Man That Lives To Die For Vanity.

Kulno oli vait ja laskis Lutveid rääkida. Oli, nagu kuulaks ta iseennast, seda ennast, kes elas, patustas, kannatas ja kaebas aastate eest. Või ei kannatanud ega kaevanud tema sugugi nõnda? Ehk ei oska tema Lutvei kaebehelides muid toone tabada, kui aga ainuüksi neid, mida ta millalgi iseenese rinnas uulatanud? Võib-olla meie ei tea ilmast üldse muud, kui aga seda põrmukest, mis leidub vähemalt idunagi meis enestes? Kõik muu on ehk sealpool meie ilma läve, kõik muu on hauatagune, surnute riik, kuigi ta oleks elavaid täis. Nõnda mõistaksime teiste kannatusi ainult kannatades ja teiste valudele kaasa tundes tunneksime tõepoolest ainult iseenestele kaasa. Meid huvitab teiste kannatus ainult sel määral, kui palju nad meie viisil kannatavad. Kes kõigele kannatusele tahavad kaasa tunda, need peavad võima kogumi kannatusi maitsta, peavad võima kannatada kui ussike, kui rohulajuke, kui lõhnav lill, kui pakatavalt muhelev maa, kui liivaterake.
A.H. Tammsaare (Kärbes)
Yes,” Tunde said “And you never knew because you thought anybody not in the latest designer clothes, shoes and not having the latest handset is a nobody.
S.A. David (7 Flash)
How shall the burial rite be read? The solemn song be sung? The requiem for the loveliest dead, That ever died so young?   Her friends are gazing on her, And on her gaudy bier, And weep! — oh! to dishonor Dead beauty with a tear!   They loved her for her wealth — And they hated her for her pride — But she grew in feeble health, And they love her — that she died.   They tell me (while they speak Of her “costly broider’d pall”) That my voice is growing weak — That I should not sing at all —   Or that my tone should be Tun’d to such solemn song So mournfully — so mournfully, That the dead may feel no wrong.   But she is gone above, With young Hope at her side, And I am drunk with love Of the dead, who is my bride. —   Of the dead — dead who lies All perfum’d there, With the death upon her eyes, And the life upon her hair.   Thus on the coffin loud and long I strike — the murmur sent Through the grey chambers to my song, Shall be the accompaniment.   Thou died’st in thy life’s June — But thou did’st not die too fair: Thou did’st not die too soon, Nor with too calm an air.   From more than fiends on earth, Thy life and love are riven, To join the untainted mirth Of more than thrones in heaven —   Therefore, to thee this night I will no requiem raise, But waft thee on thy flight, With a Pæan of old days.  
Edgar Allan Poe (Edgar Allan Poe: The Complete Tales and Poems)
There was no point talking to women at all; even meeting their eyes felt too dangerous. When he walked past a group of women on the road - laughing and joking and making arcs against the sky - Tunde said to himself, I'm not here, I'm nothing, don't notice me, you can't see me, there's nothing here to see.
Naomi Alderman, The Power
TUNDE ADEBIMPE: Failure is the best. After you fail, you’re free.
Lizzy Goodman (Meet Me in the Bathroom: Rebirth and Rock and Roll in New York City 2001-2011)
Ai kishte dëgjuar më parë avionët të bënin zhurmë të sforcuar po jo si kjo kërkëllitje e metalit rreth e rrotull tij, sikur perçinat po dilnin vendit si ca kopsa të jakave të modës së vjetër. Veç kësaj, krahët qenë shumë të hollë. Edhe në një ditë të qetë e blu, po t'i shihje ato të dridheshin do të thoshe: një çift fletësh hekuri, ja se ç'janë. - Viktor, po anohemi gjithnjë e më tepër... S'kam parë kurrë kaq keq. Asnjë koment. S'mund të mohohej ajo që dukej. Avioni hidhej poshtë e lart si një kartë bixhozi. - Në qoftë se rrëzohemi... - Do të jetë faji im. Unë të futa këtu. Qe një çast fluturimi i rrafshtë, pa lëkundje. Viktori u habit që ritmi i zemrës së tij nuk qe rritur. As nuk e mbajti frymën dhe as nuk u djersit kur avioni nisi të bjerë përsëri. - Ti sikur s'çan kokë dhe aq, - tha Katrina. - Sigurisht që çaj. - Dëgjo Viktor. Nëqoftë se vdekja është përpara çdo minute, nëqoftë se do të përfundojmë në ujë... Dua të të pyes të më thuash diçka. - Mos e fillo këtë Katrinë. - Është fare e thjeshtë. Dua thjesht ta thuash këtë... - Lëri këto budallallëqe, Katrina. Në një kohë të tillë si kjo, të më pyet. E çfarë? Për dashurinë? - Zemërimi e bëri zërin e tij të ngjante përsëri me një flaut. Goja iu zmadhua dhe mustaqet gjithashtu iu zgjeruan. Ai qe gati të fliste edhe më ashpër. Ajo e ndërpreu: - Mos u bëj kështu me mua tani, Viktor. Nëqoftë se ne do të biem, pse nuk do të doje ta thoje këtë?... - E kape këtë rast për të më përdredhur krahun. - Në se ne nuk e duam njëri-tjetrin, atëherë çfarë bëjmë ne? Pse ndodhemi këtu? - U ndodhëm se ti je një grua dhe unë jam një burrë, ja pse ndodhemi këtu. Ç'mendim të çuditshëm që kishte: ateistët pranojnë ritin absolut. Gruaja këmbëngul dhe burri që po vdes, tund kokën. Pse jo? Pas pak, ata ndjenë ngritjen e kontrolluar të avionit. Ai kishte gjetur përsëri një shtresë të butë ajri dhe po fluturonte qetësisht. Ende në ankth, Katrina nisi të mendojë rreth atyre ç'i kishte shtënë në kokë fortuna. - Tani jemi mirë, - tha Viktori. Ajo ndjeu se ishte shumë më pak mirë se ç'kishte qenë ndonjëherë. O zot! Sa shumë humba, mendonte ajo. Dera e kabinës u hap dhe piloti i dytë tha: - Jeni mirë? Ishte rrugë e keqe. Por për një minutë jemi mbi Çikagon e jugut. - Një lumë fjalësh, një kërkëllitje e pakuptueshme erdhi nga kulla e kontrollit në Miduej. Viktori qe i qetë dhe dukej edhe me humor të mirë. Ç'vetëpërmbajtje kishte ai njeri! Dhe nuk t'i përmendte kundër teje, gjërat qesharake. E kishte shumë të mirë këtë gjë. Atje në spital, për shembull. Ai nuk mund të thoshte: "Të dua". Kjo do të qe shfajësim. Katrina vente e vinte nëpër fjalët e thënë nga ai e ajo, ndërsa avioni u afrua pranë tokës dhe u ul. I kishte mbetur mendja te të gjithë ato edhe kur i kaluan te helikopteri, nën fshikullimën e helikave. Vajzat e shërbimit aty, qenë të mësuara. Ato sikur thoshin: Mos u mërzit e dashur, dashuria do t'i zgjidhë problemet e tua. Bëje veten të meritueshme dhe do të dashurohesh. fq.126-128

SIRÁCIDES30 Sir30:1El que ama a su hijo, le azota sin cesar, para poderse alegrar en su futuro. Sir30:2El que enseña a su hijo, sacará provecho de él, entre sus conocidos de él se gloriará. Sir30:3El que instruye a su hijo, pondrá celoso a su enemigo, y ante sus amigos se sentirá gozoso. Sir30:4Murió su padre, y como si no hubiera muerto, pues dejó tras de sí un hombre igual que él. Sir30:5En su vida le mira con contento, y a su muerte no se siente triste. Sir30:6Contra sus enemigos deja un vengador, y para los amigos quien les pague sus favores. Sir30:7El que mima a su hijo, vendará sus heridas, a cada grito se le conmoverán sus entrañas. Sir30:8Caballo no domado, sale indócil, hijo consentido, sale libertino. Sir30:9Halaga a tu hijo, y te dará sorpresas juega con él, y te traerá pesares. Sir30:10No rías con él, para no llorar y acabar rechinando de dientes. Sir30:11No le des libertad en su juventud, y no pases por alto sus errores. Sir30:12Doblega su cerviz mientras es joven, tunde sus costillas cuando es niño, no sea que, volviéndose indócil, te desobedezca, y sufras por él amargura de alma. Sir30:13Enseña a tu hijo y trabaja en él, para que no tropieces por su desvergüenza. Sir30:14Vale más pobre sano y fuerte de constitución que rico lleno de achaques en su cuerpo. Sir30:15Salud y buena constitución valen más que todo el oro, cuerpo vigoroso más que inmensa fortuna. Sir30:16Ni hay riqueza mejor que la salud del cuerpo, ni contento mayor que la alegría del corazón. Sir30:17Mejor es la muerte que una vida amarga, el descanso eterno que enfermedad permanente. Sir30:18Manjares derramados sobre boca cerrada, eso son las ofrendas de alimentos puestas sobre una tumba. Sir30:19¿De qué le sirve el sacrificio a un ídolo? ¡ni lo comerá ni lo olerá! Así aquel a quien persigue el Señor, Sir30:20que mira con sus ojos y gime. Escomo un eunuco que oprime a una virgen y gime. Sir30:21No entregues tu alma a la tristeza, ni te atormentes a ti mismo con tus cavilaciones. Sir30:22La alegría de corazón es la vida del hombre, el regocijo del varón, prolongación de sus días. Sir30:23Engaña tu alma y consuela tu corazón, echa lejos de ti la tristeza; que la tristeza perdió a muchos, y no hay en ella utilidad. Sir30:24Envidia y malhumor los días acortan, las preocupaciones traen la vejez antes de tiempo. Sir30:25Un corazón radiante viene bien en las comidas, se preocupa de lo que come.
Anonymous (La Santa Biblia (Spanish Edition))
See, mida ta selle väikse olendi vastu tundis, polnud hoopiski see, mida ta oli oodanud. Selles tundes polnud mitte midagi rõõmsat ega tujutõstvat; vastupidi, see oli uus piinav hirm. See oli teadmine uue hella koha tekkimisest. Ja see teadmine oli algul nii piinav, hirm selle pärast, et see abitu olend võiks kannatada, oli nii tugev, et selle tõttu jäi märkamata ka see mõttetu rõõm ja kuguni kummaline uhkus, mida ta sel puhul tundis, kui laps aevastas.
Leo Tolstoy (Anna Karenina)

Give An African Child Or Adult A Enabled Environment And Proper Facilities Like In The West And See The Many Great Wonders That Would Be Manifested Through This Often Criticized Race. In My Own Case I Was More Fortunate, But Later Transformed From A Soft Heart Person To A Very Stubborn And Stone Heart Person To Enable Me Push On Through. All Those Who Knew Me Could Tell You Of Me Very Well Home And Abroad.

The Truth Is That I Was Recognized For Stubbornness And Not Goodness. Even, Though I Was Very Intelligent And Sent To School By A Little Few Supports From Sponsors And My Mother. My Brain Was Never Ever Cool. Due To All The Mistakes I Saw From A Very Tender Age From All Those Whom I Looked Upon As Elders And Shinning Examples. Although They Where Some Good Examples Which Still Live On. Still The Early Damaged As Already Been Done. So It Led Me Dropping Out Of School In To Working And Using The Great Ancient Vedic Philosophies I Have Been Hearing From The Very Beginning Of My Conception In My Mother Womb Till The Day I Was Born And Forever. I Used Them All To Materialize Many Of My Dreams And Practice Mysticism Coupled With Spiritualism To Keep My Self Secured And Keep Cool Depending On God.

Nii on see ikka, et kui vaatad ümberringi, näed ennast, ja kui vaatad endasse, näed maailma, üha enam pettudes, üha harvemini tundes ennast petetuna.
Mathura (Käe all voogav joon)
Tunde was my Nigerian potential last year. It was a very platonic crush since no matter the dates we had, the late nights we laid up, and the times we’ve come so close to having sex that I could imagine the taste of his dick, we never had sex.
Jessica N. Watkins (Love, Sex, Lies)
It was only two months after Tunde, her ex-love interest, suddenly moved to North Carolina, against her wishes, when she met Amiel at a gas station in Lansing.
Jessica N. Watkins (Love, Sex, Lies)
The world will seldom change until we change, and we cannot change ourselves if we’re unwilling to be deeply uncomfortable, do the emotional work necessary, and deny ourselves false empathy. If we are to do this difficult work, why not over delicious food and heartening drink?
Julia Turshen (Feed the Resistance: Recipes + Ideas for Getting Involved)
Uus oli tema jaoks aga see, et kõik tunded ja mõtted on vaid ajutised kogemused — isegi kõige halvemad neist haihtuvad mingi aja pärast.
Richard Carlson, Ph.D.
Halvas tujus inimene näeb asju ilmselt hullemana, kui need tegelikult on. Sam taipas, et halva tuju tunded tunduvad äärmiselt tõesed ja me mõtleme, et kõik on nii sünge, nagu näib — tegelikult see ju nii ei ole.
Richard Carlson, Ph.D.
The truth is what it is, and it demands good old-fashioned values from us. So, dressing up what we would love to be true as the truth is always an exercise in futility in the long run.
Tunde Salami
Success and failure are two sides of the same coin. And a sweet victory is often preceded by a defining moment when the pains of a crushing disappointment also strengthen us to try again.
Tunde Salami
God has absolute wisdom and power in all situations, including those that can give anyone sleepless nights. And when we put in our best efforts and then put our trust in God, the stage is set for Him to showcase His Grace, as only He can.

No amount of material possession can guarantee inner peace. But gratitude for what we have, and patience with noble dreams yet to come true, will always lead us to the wellspring of bliss within.
Tunde Salami
Opinions that have no foundation in truth kill more dreams than lack of talent. And it is by listening to our heart that we often find deep-rooted reasons to own the power to make our dreams come true.

Tunde Salami
Gratitude is an easy to overlook glorious one-way street that you can count on to take you to places beyond your wildest dreams.
Tunde Salami

Tunde Salami
Genuine kindness is the healthiest blood type for humanity. One random act of kindness can circulate through humanity forever, begetting its kind and nourishing everyone it touches along the way.” ~Tunde Salami
Tunde Salami
Prayer and hard work are a strong team for making the impossible possible. A wholehearted prayer makes the right hard work pay off, and the key to activating an answered prayer is often hard work dictated by common sense.
Tunde Salami
Children are ever so keen to cut their teeth on what their parents do consistently. So, when you treat your parents with loving care today, you are most likely teaching your children how to honour you in the future.
Tunde Salami
One of life’s greatest obstacles to fulfilment is the habit of getting so caught up in the illusion of how others are doing while taking the reality of how well you are running your own race for granted.
Tunde Salami
It’s so easy to confuse the messenger with the message. And sometimes when too many people for our liking are screaming the same message at us, the wisest thing to do is to ponder and grow from the message, even if we can’t stand the messengers.
Tunde Salami
Regret and guilt can’t change the past. Anxiety and worry can’t shape the future. Our greatest power to redeem the past and shape the future always lies in our one chance to make the most of the present.
Tunde Salami
Every day is a precious gift from God, and how we spend every day is how we spend our life and truly express our gratitude to Him.
Tunde Salami
It’s human nature to want to be right and prove everyone else wrong. It’s wise to know that you cannot find peace of mind by giving everyone else a piece of your mind.
Tunde Salami
Life reveals itself to us in waves of seasons and milestones, some seemingly joyful or painful in the moment, but the true meaning of each wave in our unique story often only becomes obvious in hindsight.
Tunde Salami
No one truly has nothing, and no one truly has everything. Choosing to feel blessed for what we have is a proven attitude for making everything we truly want possible.
Tunde Salami
The magic power of treating others with graciousness means when we don’t reserve the gesture for only those we think can do us a favour, we always have a great chance of encountering great people and great fortunes in unexpected places.
Tunde Salami
Accurate self-perception is where success begins. As we find the courage to stop buying into other people’s limited perceptions of us, we start to change the way we think about ourself and find the confidence to pursue the right possibilities for us.
Tunde Salami
Money can empower anyone to do lots of virtuous things, but endless accumulation of money to feed their ego will have a virtuous person do anything for money.
Tunde Salami
When the ego has you in its grip, it can distort any reality to make you feel you are the smartest person in the room. But listening with curiosity is the smartest way to show genuine respect to others and gain true wisdom.
Tunde Salami
Sharp-eyed gratitude never fails to see Grace revealed in multiple ways. And it never fails to inspire us to express appreciation for the pleasant things in our life, and to be thankful for the unpleasant things we are shielded from.
Tunde Salami
Words are invisible, but they have enormous power to build someone up or tear them down. Truly confident people always find the right words to make others feel capable of more than they had ever imagined.
Tunde Salami
Procrastination is a silent dream killer. And sometimes the only way to avoid a great dream being snuffed out is to make today that one day you’ve been promising yourself to take that first baby step you know you need to take. ~Tunde Salami
Tunde Salami
Life can seem like an open-book exam. Success then hinges on our capacity to extract and apply relevant lessons from a catalogue of other people’s successes and mistakes to whatever life throws at us.
