If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough - Albert Einstein

To try and fail is at least to learn. To fail to try is to suffer the inestimable loss of what might have been - Chester Barnard

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the Air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same - Former CEO of Coca Cola Bryan Dyson

They used to say back then that the only difference between a Texas oilman and a pigeon was that one could still put a deposit on a Mercedes – from the Roland March mystery “Back on Murder”, in reference to the 1980s Texas oil bust

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.

Jessie B. Rittenhouse (1869 – 1948)

Stay Strong, Your Time Will Come! Kenya is 2 hrs ahead of Nigeria, but it does not mean that Nigeria is slow, or that Kenya is fast. Both countries are working based on their own Time Zone. Some one is still single. Someone got married and waited 10 yrs before having a child, there is another who had a baby within a year of marriage. Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job. And there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately. Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years. Everyone works based on their Time Zone. People can have things worked out only according to their pace. Work in your time zone. Your Colleagues, friends, younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you. Don’t envy them,it’s their time zone. You are in yours! Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not late, you’re very much On time!

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it - Brian W. Kernighan and P. J. Plauger in The Elements of Programming Style


Writing is thinking. To write well is to think clearly. That’s why it’s so hard. - David McCullough
