As several friends have feed-backed to me recently on how they truly enjoyed reading the post Who Are You My Friend?, I decided to specially reserve an entry & lay tribute to the author herself – an online friend of mine, Miss Яiyana.
She is smart, wise, intellectually talented and posts a lot of interesting quotes, bitter truths, one liners and random thoughts on her personal space which made me proud, smile, laugh, think and kindly relate to.
May God truly bless her for that. Below are some of her written and adapted works which I believe, needs to be shared upon to more people out there. As they all say, good things must share. So sit back & enjoy the read below aitez.


The Intellectual Quotes (3)
  • There was a time when many had a few but willing to give.
    The medicine was little but diseases were scarce.
    A time when many don’t know much, but understood more.
    Now has come a time, when people had so much but are not willing to give.
    Medicines are abundant but diseases uncured.
    A time – full of knowledge but none really understands.
  • It can’t be broken. It can’t be stopped
    It sprints when you are happy but slows down in solitude
    It doesn’t look like anything.
    A medicine in silence and under construction
    You can steal it but you won’t own it.
    Dare ignore & it will steal from you.
    That’s Time.
  • Only if the veil is lifted does the heart sees.
    And the heart that sees, are those that will learn.
    Those which had learn will know, and when they know
    They will abstain and lean closer.


 The One Liners (4)

  • Love is designed to send peace and tranquility in the heart of others.
  • The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.
  • If sin had an odour, will we be able to sit, next to each other?
  • People stood in their own shadows and question; why is it dark.


The Motivational Story (1)

There was a young girl, she was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed that as one of her problems was solved, a new one popped up. So her mother took her to the kitchen took some carrots, egg, and coffee beans and placed them in different pots of boiling water. S
he let them sit and boil without saying a word. Then in about twenty minutes, she turned off the burners.
Turning to her complaining daughter, she asked – Tell me what do you see?
Carrots, eggs and coffee, – her daughter replied.
Her mother explained that each of the three objects had faced the same adversity — boiling water — but each had reacted differently. Think of it like this…
Which am I? Am I a carrot that appears to be strong on the outside, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt, and become soft and lose my strength?
Or am I an egg, which starts out with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship, or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter, and tough, with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart?
Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the water. The very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases its fragrance and flavour.
If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst and trials are their greatest, you get better and change the situation around you.


The Bitter Truth (1)

This is a partial truth.
All of us, have this tendency to treat something differently than we used to before we get a hand of them. Soon after we know we have already acquired it, we neglect it.
A simple example here – Let’s say a hand phone. It’s easy to see someone buying screen protectors and/or leather skin casings to guard their newly acquired belongings from scratches or acts of nature. A little bump may earn the owner so much concern – Is the phone alright? Is it damaged? and so on and so forth.
You fill in the blanks.

But not so for the ones you’ve already got and used for some time suppose – A bump? Who cares!? The phone took a dive ? Who cares!? Water spilled on it? Who cares!?

Point here is that – people don’t treat and act the same, once they have obtained the things they once wanted so much.

The reason why I explained up to this extend is not because you only appreciate the things once it’s gone. It is more about; the action , the way you treat something which was once a subject of your desires.

The only thing you allow to change in the things that you once wanted so bad, does not lie in the time lapse. It’s not because it’s old. Never!

Instead, it is how you treat it along the way that determines the condition of those things you ‘still want’ or ‘once wanted’. You decide.

It is a partial truth only because the other part is up to you to prove it wrong.

Sad but true.


The Wisdom (1)

Take some time & give a thought about this – There is no joy, if you eat when you are full isn’t it? Do you feel the sweetness of hunger ; eating when you are full?
There are no flying elephants, you can’t lie. You definitely can’t possibly savor the taste even the finest of food when you are filled up to your throat.
Same theory here – There is no joy in receiving any form of happiness ;to receive something good when you are busy being happy. You wouldn’t feel grateful because your heart is over filled with joy & there can be no more room for it.
Ask yourself to what extend can you feel happy?
There are limits. Hence, when God takes away a little bit of your happiness; even those small little things from you ,it’s alright, do not despair, God knows exactly what to take away. He makes a little space, purposely emptying and creating spaces in that abstract emotion. Just so He can fill it up again . . for you to savor the sweetness of being happy.

The Random Thoughts (6)

  • Don’t let the troubles of the world consume you. There are no problems with no given solutions. Faith is like that of walking up a flight stairs and you can’t see where it brings you but one thing for certain, you are going nowhere except for up. So keep the faith.
  • Everyone blames love when nothing goes right. Have some mercy. Besides, love isn’t a contract of never ending happiness nor does it promises you to spare you from any of the trials in life, though it does offer you a form happiness on a higher level. Hence when the stakes are high; so does the game.
  • Asking for answers is too easy.
    Stay with the questions & unravel ourselves along the way.
  • No matter how many quotes you post – Don’t judge others, don’t judge others” people still judge. So I thought – Well, foolish are those who judge me. You wasted your time on me, while I learn how to be a better person. So why shall I not thank you?
  • The eye that looks with contentment does not see flaws,
    But the eye that is full of the discontent sees all flaws.
  • If you know yourself, contented with God, your intentions are right and pure, whatever the world says will not stir you. Cause they don’t matter. They don’t matter really.
