"Being honest may not always get you a lot of friends - but it will get you the right ones."
"You cannot call yourself patient until you are willing and able to bear things that you have no wish to bear."
"Be with someone who makes you better."
"When someone is going through a storm, your silent presence is more powerful than a million, empty words."
"You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again."
"You know you are on the right track when you become uninterested in looking back."
The First Grader (2010)
Beautiful movie based on the true story of Kimani Maruge, an 84 year old villager and a Mau Mau veteran, who decides to enroll in school for the first time to educate himself after hearing an announcement on the radio about the Kenyan government’s offering of free primary school education to “all”. All while facing resistance from the public’s claims of an “old man” taking up space.

Love this so much
"People aren’t always what you want them to be. Sometimes they disappoint you or let you down, but you have to give them a chance first. You can’t just meet someone and expect them to be everything you’re looking for and then be angry when they’re not every hope and aspiration you projected onto them. It’s foolish to believe that someone will be what you imagine them to be. And sometimes, when you give them a chance, they turn out to be better than you imagined. Different, but better."
"One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether it’s guilt, love, anger, loss or betrayal, change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to lest go."
