Say THAT!

listen-quote-larry-kingI have met some pretty fantastic people online and offline, that have fantastic conversation. No matter what topic we are on, they always have the perfect quips, responses, and quotes on hand. These are the most entertaining persons especially when marinated in wisdom.  Proverbial quotes – I like them. They can be witty, instructional and informational all at once. Wisdom does indeed come with age though I have found divine wisdom coming out of the mouths of babes, on a few occasions as well. That’s the best kind of communicative exchange – when you walk away wiser and proactively in thought.

I was raised in the church and I remember when Paster Floyd G. Taylor would preach and the saints were feeling it – they would belt out encouraging remarks like, “SAY THAT!, Tell the truth! and Amen!” Those are my exact sentiments when I fall into the captive conversation of a well versed conversationalist. Now while I can hold my own in verse, I am always in it to learn so the following quotes are a a mixed bag of wisdom, order and musical fad. All of the quotes are enlightening and much can be drawn from them in comprehension. Let’s take a dip into WHO SAID WHAT:

“I might not be someone’s first choice But I am a great choice. I may not be rich but I am valuable. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not because I’m good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I’ve done in the past, but I am proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect but I don’t need to be. Take me as I am, or watch me as I walk away. Forget yesterday-it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow- You haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift” – Today
[I found this quote on a BlackPlanet profile page].

“Punks jump up to get beat down!”  – Brand Nubian 

“Woman” was the test, but not every woman seemed to qualify. Black women, of course, were virtually invisible within the protracted campaign for woman suffrage. As for white working-class women, the suffrage leaders were probably impressed at first by the organizing efforts and militancy of their working-class sisters. But as it turned out, the working women themselves did not enthusiastically embrace the cause of woman suffrage.”
Angela Y. Davis, Women, Race, & Class

“Bill Cosby is a famous black guy who has a bully pulpit the size of the world; it’s global. He puts his colossal foot on the vulnerable necks of poor people, and as a result of that, we don’t have a balanced conversation.”
Michael Eric Dyson

The weekend will be wall-to-wall with opportunity. Be sure to participate in the come-up and look for me.

Sounds enriching and promising enough – I’m certainly up for it.
And if good conversation is on the table for the abled — I’ll be trying to score it!

To be bore-ish is no objective of mine, 
I prefer to intertwine in the intellect of the brightest minds.

Todays quoted finds were easy to locate.
Each one in some capacity, ol’ Qui can relate.

From Dallas, to New York and the Southwest to  the boot,
I’ve found plenty of good conversation – a good mind is a hoot!

Speak wisdom and knowledge to me and I will belt out: “SAY THAT!
I’m Qui
To the good conversationist: “Oui! Come with it. I do give back!

Though I must confess, I do delight in “the listen.”
From your head to mine – information sparkles and glistens.

NO MELEE MONDAY

The best way to insure that all is not bad
is to compose a piece with copious laughs.

But how is that done?
We can plan for NO MELEE by planning out FUN.

And on this MONDAY we need some; just a few laughs.
So I dropped in on Rickey for that morning-yawning pass.

Rickey Smiley is known for group laughter jams!
But first let’s roll it back to Ms. Juicy and the fam,
and that day she was mad at Frederick Douglas’ hair… hot damn. 😛

It’s Monday, No Melee because life is too short.
I’m not summoning Juicy; that thought is a thwart.

I love Ms. Juicy and Rickey Smiley too.
Good Morning, Goodness, I’m also loving on you.

How do you do? What have you got planned for the day?
Whatever it is, dabble not in melee.

We both agree. Eh? I’m up and ready to shine.
I’ve got my life, my health, and my good mind.

What are you sporting today?
A great attitude detours melee.

Melee must be the word to watch out for today.
I say as much with a brow up, because Monday’s are fun days.

So let us follow through.
Todays positive reinforcement will be provided by YOU.

Reading is fundamental and is an activity that I enjoy best.
Join me for a few side-crackers over at READERS DIGEST.

You gotta laugh; we gotta get it in.
If the jokes aren’t fresh let the corn in:

Ain’t nothing wrong with a little corn…
especially on a Monday morn.

Obvious word play
is perfect for a vowel with no Melee
Wouldn’t you say?

Laugh a little today and share a corny joke.
Reach for it like you do candy, liq, or smokes.

It’s much, much better for your diet.
Calories from candy and liq bring the fat riot.

And we certainly don’t need that.
A hard laugh helps to burn tummy fat.

So let’s get to laughing, good people…and let’s do it today.
Rickey and friends are a great begin for leading the comical way.

Especially if you’re in the mood for no melee, please bellow loudly.
I’m Qui
Laughing with thee; to influence Monday’s mood; proudly.

Thank you for joining in. Now share a joke influenced by your spin.
Reject melee, laugh and win.

Always FORGO

But you can still LAUGH at him. 😛

Creativity

Life would be a bore without it.
If creativity was a club, folk would crowd it

and try to keep others out.
Creativity is what a good life is all about…
and in the Social Media game, it could equate to “big clout.”

UGC (User Generated Content) is manifested composition
of creativity pointed at corporate positions.

A working system yields compensation and/or a credit mention,
says a robust fan of Thomas Edison’s inventions.

We all love to see the light.
Therefore, amongst the Mundanes —- ‘Creatives shines so bright.

People love to feel it.
So much so, many chart to steal it.

Stealing is nothing new. It’s been in fashion from the beginning of time.
The less-equipped struggle to create from whit, so they opt to ‘steal a shine.

Ever you experience such a thing?
A shameless being with no creative sheen…

Imagine not how they must feel.
Thank God that Creativity is real.

Creativity is not a club – it is a prompt; like a gene within your DNA.
It means different things across a myriad of scenes that will birth new convey.

While creativity is perceived to be fun it actually is a technology advocate for the advancement time…
In fact, creativity is where you want to be, per Albert Einstein.

Allow your creativity to shine and inspire many, (even those who seek to steal),
because without creativity life would be a monotonous & mundane hill.

And none of us want that.
So, the next time you’re in the company of a creator – acknowledge that,

network, and change the world.
Life is in the mood for new influencers, o’ young boy and girl.

What will you bring to the table and how will you fashion it?
Life isn’t easy, but it could be breezy if you’ve got a Creative fit.

Do you?
I’m Qui
Do You.
