The proverbs of fools

As snow in summer,and as rain in harvest ,so honour is not seemly for a fool.
As the bird by wandering,as the swallow by flying,so the curse cause less shall not come.
A whip for the horse,a bridle for the ass,and a rod for the fool's back.
Answer not a fool according to his folly,lest thou also be like unto him.
Answer a fool according to his folly,lest he be wise in his own conceit.
He that sends a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet,and drinketh damage.
The legs of the lame are not equal:so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
As he that bindeth a stone in a sling,so is he that giveth honor to a fool.
As a dog returns to his vomit,so does a fool returneth to his folly.
As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard,so does parables in the mouth of fools.
                 Proverbs 26!

Cutting corners!

When dealing with computer aided geometric design,de Rham's Insection algorithm,Chaikin's algorithm,degree raising of B-form,knot-insertion for splines applied to the convergence of corner cutting,they say,always work but when handling real issues of life,that has to do with achieving goals,it always blows up in our faces.

Cutting corners, defined by several dictionaries and schools of thought ,mean no good.

Remember anything worth doing is worth doing well!

Cutting corners can be defined as doing something perfunctorily to save money on time.

Cambridge dictionary defines cutting corners as doing something in the easiest,cheapest or fastest way,often ,ignoring every sign of caution.
Urban dictionary defines cutting corners as doing something with less than the appropriate amount of care.
Cutting corners in nursing,has been characterized as violation and threat to patient's safety. In their conclusions,the study found that cutting corners,created gaps that contributed to unfinished care and adverse events,that would have been avoided.
Cutting corners can only come from insecurity.Insecurity leads to unwise thoughts and destructive questions as ;

'My mates are doing so well so quickly.I am afraid,if I am not fast,I won't make it on time!"
'Why do I have to spend so much on this quality,when I can spend less for more quantity?'
'What is the point of waiting on the queue,when I can go through the back door?"

Forgetting that these short-cuts and corners are dark and uncertain.An accountant would often describe cutting corners as 'penny wise,pound foolish'.

I define risks in terms of wisdom and foolishness.
Taking the risk of going through a longer route but the right one,is what I can define as a wise risk.

Now,taking risk as such as going through the back door of many things in life,one can define as taking a foolish risk.

Another factor that contributes to people cutting corners is impatience.
Patience,they say,is a special virtue,it takes a special grace to be patient.
Impatience works side by side with anger.As we cut corners,because of impatience,blinded by anger coated with pride,we don't see the danger in front of us.
We drive into the danger and what awaits us there is our doom!
Let's do away with the habit of cutting corners,it leads us to nothing but danger and doom!

How a winner faces failure!

A winner understands he needs to fail at something to know what works for him,in order to succeed in everything!
He looks failure in the face and doesn't react badly,because he understands failure is only temporary.
He interprets failure to mean a setback,that something is re-aligning him for far greater opportunity!
He understands the period he failed,is the only period he will ever fail,so he makes use of the spare time to learn more about himself,discover other skills and appreciate inventions,yet another opportunity to gain power,for knowledge is power!
He doesn't get worried,he fixes what was wrong,so he is not left behind!
He dresses himself as a warrior; a helmet of determination,a spear of faith,a pair of persistent boots,an armor of resilience and clothes of expectation,understanding that against all odds of failure,he must succeed,even if it means,he has to try severally!

Words and the tongue

 Words are like eggs dropped from great heights;
Tongues are those great heights from which words are dropped;
They are either wagging or wise!
Words have power,when spoken through the tongue,carry meanings in diversity!
Words can kindle fire in the minds of men,so can it melt the hardest of hearts!
Be mindful of your spoken words,they can haunt you forever,so are conceived words,which are being interpreted as thoughts!
Don't say words you don't mean.
Don't say something just because you want to feel good!
The wisdom behind spoken words is time!
Always understand there is time for everything!
There is a time for tease and a time for tears!
Time for smiles and time for sorrows!
Words should be spoken according to their time frames!
Remember,words are pale shadows of forgotten names!
They can bring justification and also,condemnation;
They can give birth to creation and also provoke convulsions!
They can ignite indignation and can also bring men to their knees!
They can become your testimony or your stigmas !
Be quick to hear but slow to speak,my dear friends!
For words spoken in haste do end up in regret!

Admire others and make them the measure behind how large a mirror you need to get to view yourself!
Let the success of others be an encouragement to you and that path of yours,it should be a stepping stone to your greatness but not the path on which you must tread!
The way you admire others makes you crave such admiration from others,I know,don't let it consume you.
Being consumed by such thoughts and longings,create unwanted loopholes for jealousy.
Who you see in the mirror when you look is yourself,how you pose in front of it determines the effect it gives you!
The appreciation and make overs you do to your life will make you understand how far you have come with making you look good in the mirror.
The larger the mirror the larger the view!Don't waste such large views looking at others!Be happy for others!Let them shine!Do your own thing and have fun whilst at it.Let their shine inspire you,and not to make you perspire!
Rejoice for them and tap into their blessings,be positive that yours is just around the corner.
Envy no one!The simple trick behind you getting yours sooner than you expected,is feeling good about your neighbor"s success!!

When hopelessness shows up at your doorstep!

There is a naughty friend of ours that never stops creeping up on us!
He comes around when we are always up to something good in our lives,especially the really difficult tasks of them all!
Just when we need to put in all we have got,he comes knocking on our doors.And when it seems he's been ignored by us,he finds his way through the window or the back door.He never gives up until he's done what he came to do,which is dropping his little ones,discouragement,disappointment and rejection,for us to baby-sit.
And this really happens when we couldn't get the first task right or we missed out on the first opportunity,he makes us baby sit in misery!We shut our doors and windows, for fear of the mosquitoes of opportunity,because we think we cannot handle just another task again in our lives,as the first one was a disaster.
And thus our lives,we live in misery,pain,and regret for hopelessness will never visit us again,to pick up his little ones from our houses.We start wishing we were stronger to ward him off, the first time he visited us with those kids.
Hey,don't fret!Life doesn't have to be that way for you,because I know deep down you,you want to try again!What you need to do,is toss discouragement,disappointment and rejection,out of your home.Ouch!i know it feels you are mean,as they are just kids.You have to be tough because they are no good for you,and for all it's worth,hopelessness doesn't care anymore!He is going about his own business without a care for those notorious three.
There's a friend just across the road,he will make you not feel bad about doing so.His name is determination,the son of success and reward.He will take you to meet his parents and you will never know what it means to meet hopelessness anymore.I know the road to his parents'house is bumpy and like a roller coaster,but you don't have to suffer through it,you can make it fun for you and take what you meet on the road in faith,so you have a story to tell when you get to your destination,my dear friend!
This is a lesson for you and me.Refuse to worry about what you cannot control!If it's out of your control,why fret about it?Don't be faithless,be believing,for a winner must first know what it's like to lose!

The true definition of a rare gem!

Nowadays,the use of the words rare gem to describe a figure in the society, or loved ones gone in their biography notes, cannot be over-emphasized!
Agreed,every human being has his or her own unique quality that distinguishes him or her from the rest  of the world,thereby making that person uncommon.
Do we really understand the qualities of a rare gem?
Do we realize that our characters in life should be related with the attributes of a rare gem?
Twelve precious stones were mentioned as foundations of the wall of the new Jerusalem.The characters of each,i will emulate!

Gemstone 1;JASPER
Jasper is the first of the twelve foundation stones!
It is opaque,fine-grained of dense variety of the silica chert.It has variety of colors, ranging from brick red to reddish brown,yellow,green and black.For thousands of years,black jasper was used to test gold-silver-alloys for their gold content.Legends have it that jasper brings joy and happiness to lives!
Can your life be a true picture of example for others to
Can you be a role model to others?
Do you bring joy to yourself,your family or the society?
Do you light up the faces of people?
Like black jasper,Jesus Christ will test our labor and service for gold on the last day!
