" A real gift comes attached with ribbons, not strings."
Written in 2008 by Raymond C. Nolan --- Alabama
A friend told me that he would give his sister a gift of money if she would do a special favor for his wife. I told him that if that was the case, it really wasn't a gift.

" The people you conspire with, to do any evil, are the same who will tell of your unreliability when you need recommendation. And...they can prove it."
Written in 1992 by Obinna Cedric Agugua --- Nigeria
This thought came to me when I was almost leaving secondary school (1992). I grew up where being able to get away with 'little' evil deeds" seemed like being smart. I was tempted by friends to join the queue but because of the kind of life I wanted to live, I always admonished them and on one such occasion, this just sprang up. I knew one day I might need recommendations and people would expect that recommendations from my closest friends and if there's any evil I've done with them, it could be recalled.

" The only person you should put on a pedestal is yourself but only if you are willing to put everyone else there with you!"
Written in 2008 by Leanne Carmichael --- Australia
The world we live in is full of people that do not understand just how beautiful and complete they are and try so desperately to rise above others. It's not until we see ourselves in everyone we met, that we will change our lives and find our heaven. Is it not said, that God created us in his image? Then why do we doubt ourselves?
