Inspirational Quotes for the WEEKEND

By Charles Leyman Kachitsa

Is it possible to control that which is producing the voice in one self? Arguably and naturally if you listen to yourself you sometimes get lost in the words coming out from inside you of that which is expressing itself through voice. In such other bizarre moments some people have reported not been able to shut down that which wants to say what has to be said. Language matters and is one of the amazing things that God bestowed on man and it is in fact only him amongst the animals that is able to take control and express themselves through it.

One of the wonders to be shared on language, is how any new born no matter what their colour adopts the language from the land they are born and grow in. Even if the parents may not be so competent in a new language in the land they have moved to, any child born after their arrival, amazingly adopts easily the language of the land without much prompting and even if their home (parents) would be speaking another language. More so with the advent of new communication technology such as television and mobile phones with unlimited connectivity, the adoption of language by toddlers is amplified a millionfold.

To control the visage and words coming out of ones mouth one needs practice, discipline and faith. Faith and confidence makes one sure of what they are saying. Practice with the mind in positive thinking lets us be in harmony with that which only express perfection. Evidently unless one is sick, it is possible to take control of speech of whatever purpose which makes a mockery of one saying, ‘I did not know what I was saying’ for even in a subconscious state a person well trained in goodness will without knowing only produce sounds that make those listening happy and acknowledge we have a very powerful force beyond that is all glorious.

The quotes this week are from another of the 20th century icon that touched so many people and became a symbol of humility in life. She defined simplicity in the way that is possible to sustain one self in life. I am sure the selected quotations from her sayings below will enlighten you to one or two life lessons, read and enjoy:

QUOTATIONS FROM THE COMPASSIONATE WORDS OF MOTHER TERESA (1910 – 1997)

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

“Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.”

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.  I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?”

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
