Inspirational Quotes

Kingsley Kobo

The more we compromise with our constraints, the more we make a destiny out of them.

Kingsley Kobo

The most dangerous criminal is he who buys trust with temporary honesty.

Kingsley Kobo

Light and Darkness employ different tactics to dominate. Light is active and vigorous, it moves to conquer regions held by Darkness. Whereas, Darkness is passive and observant, it creeps only into domains that lack Light.

Kingsley Kobo

Death and Birth constitute the same magnitude of losses and blessings to the world. When a man dies, the world is relieved of his burdens and same time deprived of his usefulness. When a child is born, he brings immediate joy to family and friends, awaiting the problems he might create for the world tomorrow.

Kingsley Kobo

The best way to discipline a man is to threaten his ambition.

Kingsley Kobo

Light is distinguished by darkness, for without darkness light would have no value. Just as slavery is to freedom; foolishness to wisdom; ugliness to beauty; insanity to sanity; impurity to purity; poverty to affluence; thirst to satisfaction; loneliness to activity and hatred to love. However, these are the perfect equations that make the world we live in imperfect.

Kingsley Kobo

Kingsley Kobo

Patience without a lingering hope is slavery. Hope without a steady tussle is fantasy. Fantasy without an ending course is folly.

Kingsley Kobo

Kingsley Kobo

Kingsley Kobo

Violence loves what words cannot repair and what silence cannot tolerate.

Kingsley Kobo

When your wife sings, she needs appreciation; when she frowns, she needs a hug; when she blushes, she needs a kiss. But when she shouts at you, she needs silence and a prayer.

Kingsley Kobo

If you want to right your wrongs, be enemy to yourself and some people. But if you decide to live with your wrongs, be friend to yourself and be friend to all.

Kingsley Kobo

When your past irritates you, your present is surely ameliorating and your future might be bright. But when all your glories are held by your past, your present is doing but reminiscence and your future might suffer neglect.

Kingsley Kobo

It is impossible not to compare yourself with others. You only fail in the comparison when you covet where others have come to without considering where they have come from.

Kingsley Kobo

What a lie can obtain in a minute, truth can’t have in a whole day. But what a lie would lose in a day, truth would hold for a decade.
