Quotes (396)

Life is for living, not for taking care of for no mortal can guarantee its continuity.
Those who fear taking risks.
It's scary how some unambitious men choose a life of comfortable waiting for death while manlier swines shake the pillars of the space.
Lack of ambition.
The problem with being a gifted writer in Kenya is that you have many half-schooled editors who have no taste for literary works, and will hence have problems having your works published. I don't write to meet the wizened expectations of a Moi University graduate in Information Science, folks who cannot recall anything worth reading they've ever read. An editor should be a literary enthusiast, if not a writer themselves.
Lack of worthy publishing houses in Kenya...

Mumo, you are one of the most gifted poets on Poem Hunter. I especial loved his poem Michelle Obama.. I had sent a copy to the White House because I felt Michelle would love it. She loved it, and sent me a signed photo! ! ! I sent it to Mumo. I consider Mumo to be Kenya's Poet Laureate.. I also love his quotations. Mumo, my good friend, it now time for your STAR to arise.
Your poetic achievement in such a young age is truly admiring.Go ahead in life bro.May God shower his greatest blessings on you.
