Awol1:


He told you he was fulfilled or what you think?

There is no one that will do charity with a good heart and not be fulfilled. For the fact that he left his cherished profession to pioneer and lead one of the world known best charity organisations and lived his life free and full of age @94. Meant he was fulfilled in life.

There is a reason why Jesus said, "it is better to give than to recieve".

You should.learn one or two things from this write up. My one cent

He lived a life, saw many things, and he's taken a bow.

By the way, Bill Gates stopped being the richest man in the world.

The new king is Jeff Bezos.

Only because he stopped chasing money!

I think what people should be careful of is this 'insatiable' desire to get wealth at all costs. It is very dangerous, especially now that youths are going to any length. Work hard, work smart, but NEVER be a slave to money.

You spilled a whole lot of wisdom in here.

For some days now, I've been thinking about the get-rich-quick syndrome in our youths of today.

Like nobody is interested in building a career anymore.

Nobody wants to spend 35 years as a civil servant anymore.

Nigerian billionaires and charity are like parallel lines. They can never meet. They hardly commits their fortune to charity cause. Forget these foundation you hear, giving peanuts sometimes. American billionaires are known for charity and that's why we have a lot of charities and donors in US.

His dad was into eugenics and he championed this poisonous vaccine And fake virus madness path his murderous son bill Gates is on I hope he rots in hell. If you feel sympathy for this man and his child you’re still asleep and you need to wake up.

If all is vanity why do you not sit back at home and not go out looking for financial stability?

What's the phantom reality you are talking about? He made lots of sense up there. You better stop deceiving yourself and face the real reality.

The get rich quick syndrome most of you believe in is the sure way to frustration and lasting poverty.

Psalm 136 : 1

"Our lord is in heaven, He does whatever He wills".

God could will it that things be the way you have said it.

He could also will it that I be both bigger than him on earth and in heaven.

As long as the dice is still rolling, double six is still possible.

Don't judge a life that's not ended.

Shalom!

Awol1:


If everything ends at death, then all is vanity.

You wanna tell me about legacy? What if that is just an illusion?

You wanna talk about passing wealth to children? Remember the children too will also grow old and die leaving the wealth behind.

And so the circle of vanity continues like Hegelian dialectics.


Even poverty is vanity. It's left to us to decide which vanity we want.

Rest in peace sir. Your wealth has made your name immortal here on Earth.

Unlike these wretched Nigerian men looking for male offsprings to "carry their names" tongue
We are Africans and we have tradition unlike the west.



I guess your dad is also a Nigerian man who has male offsprings.


Your would-be husband will also be happier with one or two male offsprings

Your statement oozes of slavery mentality

Quick Rich syndrome is achievable without crime if you were smart and determined a good case study is Bill Gate an Havard drop out who sold his idea with his friends to the world, same as Mark Zuckerberg.. both could have gotten stuck on your kind of mentality of vanity upon vanity, but instead they step out of the ordinary, broke protocols changed narrative and they are super wealthy for it,
