  1. Emeasoba George:

    Appreciation gives rise to motivation/multiplication. Let's take this as a case study. When Jesus Christ was faced with the task of feeding a multitude. The scripture says that he (Jesus Christ) first and foremost gave thanks to God. And just because he gave thanks to God. God was motivated to multiply the five loaves of bread/two fishes which he already had. Now that's why he (Jesus Christ) miraclously fed/overfed at a time 5,000 men excluding women and children, scripture reference (Mattew 14 and verse 17 through 21). Anyway, that evidently proves, appreciation truly gives rise to motivation which eventually leads to multiplication. Have you been unappreciative to God/your fellow humans all these while? If YES then, you've got to learn to appreciate your fellow humans. But most importantly, do appreciate God all the time/way even in time of scarcity/insufficiency of resources like money/food stuffs. Because if you dare to appreciate him (God) at all times. Then, he will be motivated to multiply whatever you have until you are wholly gratified/satisfied.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Appreciation is nothing else but an indirect application for more or multiplication. Besides that, any person who feels appreciated will surely end up doing more than he or she has done before. Thus, take nothing for granted. For, anything taken for granted will eventually be taken away (mark you). ~Emeasoba George

  3. Gypsy Smith:

    You save an old man and you save a unit; but save a boy, and you save a multiplication table.

  4. Lamberto Zannier:

    We see a multiplication of incidents, violations of the ceasefire, we've seen cases of redeployment of heavy armaments closer to the contact line ... and multiple rocket launchers, artillery being used.

  5. Jan Ehrenwald.:

    Ludwig von Beethoven had never mastered the elements of arithmetic beyond addition and subtraction. A thirteen-year-old boy whom he had befriended tried unsuccessfully to teach him simple multiplication and division.
