  1. Tarek Elgawhary:

    What ISIS represents, what they stand for, has nothing to do with a religion whatsoever. They have no understanding of Islam, this parallel religion that they have created is no more Islam than a pool with one lemon squeezed into it is lemonade.

  2. Sipho P Nkosi:

  4. Vincent Van Gogh:

    At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.”

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Successful people are those who pick up the lemons that life throws at them, and turn them into lemonade, lemon marmalade and even crema di limoncello. You have got to be really smart and savvy to build a solid foundation with the bricks that people throw at you. Success comes to only those who are smart to transform every threat into a new opportunity, and overcome the adversity with courage and determination. History teaches us that those who work hard and smart, always triumph in the end. Make a great day, my friend!
