20 Positive Quotes by Nigerians

A sweetheart read through my poems and quotes, and pointed out I do not promote quotes by Nigerians. "O-M-G! You are right!" I suddenly realized. So he offered to help with these quotes. :)

20 Positive Quotes by Nigerians


I love to read quotations. I’ll admit that I have a rather funny habit of keeping long lists of my favorites in my diary. I can't explain how few number of words keep my heart on.

So when Dr. Dee sent me these quotes, I was so happy. They speak of living with positivity and inspiration, which is what this blog centers upon.

Here we go. . .

- 18 - 
"Only those who truly love and who are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell in your own enchantment. Life throws stones at you, but your love and your dream change those stones into the flowers of discovery. Even if you lose, or are defeated by things, your triumph will always be exemplary. And if no one knows it, then there are places that do. People like you enrich the dreams of the worlds, and it is dreams that create history. People like you are unknowing transformers of things, protected by your own fairy-tale, by love." 
~ Ben Okri


- 19 -
"Encourage someone today; your voice could make a difference." 
~ Victor D.O.

"To those who are struggling. To talk about a struggle, you're likely to forget about it. To be shown a struggle, you're likely not to forget it. But, to live through a struggle, you'll understand it." 
~ Valerie Owens


- Extra - 
"If you like pray like a praying mantis or fast like a faxing machine, if you have no faith, you are just wasting your time and energy." 
~ Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha


That's it. Interesting, right?

Credits to my friend, Dr. Dee. You can find him on Twitter @Diok1. He strongly believes in Nigeria and Nigerians.

I couldn't agree more when he said; "I like to see Nigerians being celebrated. It will be nice if Nigerians and people from all over the world can read and apply our quotes too."

Have you any favorite quote by a Nigerian (or your very own quote)? It will be cool to have you share some in the comment box too. :D
