@ Rare



when there is no Insult, There is no Result.No Insult, No Result.

what you picture, you capture

The future you picture will feature in your future

when you love me , you won't rough me

Perception is Reception!what you perceive, you receive.

He who does not Think will certainly Sink!

Once you are at the Top, you'll become the Topic.( illumination today)

A youth without a Goal is a Goat! ([/color][color=#990000]according 2 my coordinator)

A man without God is a Dog!

A man with Hope will certainly be covered with royal Robe but he who has no hope will be tied with Rope.

Imagination is a Raw-material, You are the Finished product.

There is always a Nation in every Imagination. a nation of good or bad, wealth or poverty.

There is an ANGEL in you , LET IT FLY! if you don't , IT WILL DIE!


There is a TEMPLE in you!it is called THE TEMPLE OF WISDOM.those who worship therein get it!

Life is a Functional File.
