Anugo J. Edoka Quotes

knowledge is a puzzle one must solve with his subconscious, the more he gets, the more he is reserved
the reserved are often smart
the world before us is a closed place which one can approach with an open mind, with open minds, there are countless opportunities
life
there is no yard stick to measure what a human can do as a male or cant do as a female, we are all driven by this insatiable desire to satisfy immediate passion, its safe to say that we are dubiously unpredictable as human beings.

It’s strange when someone ask, Who is your true friend without mask! If you will ask me, This is all I will say with a glee! D one with whom ve survived all ur mysteries! D one with whom u share everything, D one whom u abuse d fullest, D one who understands you, D one who trusts you. True friends are really hard to come by, when you have them keep them close to your heart.
