…and sometimes it needs to be said.

Who is this Houston School Board Council Member?
She reminds me of myself.

#SayThat !!

God bless America and God bless us too,

And when it needs to be said — what are you gonna do?

Not sure of what happened before the video started? Feeling slightly left out?
Take heart in the way she closed the video – let THAT be WHAT this is about.

Say THAT!

#WiseWord…

I 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 Pastor 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 gander at WHO SAID WHAT:

“The here after is what we are here after – [this refers to] life and how we live it.”  — Thomas JNewark, NJ
[I was dealt this quote from a member of Hi5/Tagged].

ADD THIS up!

“I’d rather have 4 quarters than a 100 pennies. I don’t roll real deep just a few real brothers.
You can have 10 dimes, I’ll take a solid dollar. Just a down-to-earth chick — I don’t have money problems.”
DFW talent compilation CD: “FLEX” – purchased at BIG T Bazaar

FAILURE really does help:

THINK ABOUT IT:
“If at first you don’t succeed —- How did it feel? Give it some honest thought. Then the call of the next move is yours based on the feeling subsiding and the weight of the lesson learned. ” — Qui.

eckhart-tolle-quote-super-soul-sunHOW TO BE HAPPY:
“Decide every morning that you are in a good mood.” — Anonymous (i.e., Life)

WHAT About SEX?
Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. — Oscar Wilde

ABSTINANCE:
“My boyfriend and I live together, which means we don’t have sex—ever. Now that the milk is free, we’ve both become lactose intolerant.”
—Margaret Cho

“WISDOM comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen. No more is needed. Being still, looking, and listening activates the non-conceptual intelligence within you. Let stillness direct your words and actions.” —ECKHART TOLLE, Stillness Speaks

About LIFE.
In the end, the overriding factor in whether or not you realize your dreams is going to be you. Not the world. YOU.” – Russell Simmons

Yepper! I’ve hammered out a few more quotes and I hope that you can use them.
Read them, comprehend them, then break them down and use them.proverbs_31_25

With each line I was informed and humored alike – I really can’t refuse them.
I’m grateful to the #GoodHeads who initially ‘said’ – and the inspiration that did fuel them.

I usually like to add a quote of my own — for a little fizz and spice.
Then I like to throw in a proverb or two and put any bruises on ice:

It’s good to be good and it’s nice to be nice,
I’m Qui
Happy M o n d a y  to thee — What have you said in your life?

SAY THAT!

“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

I’m definitely into reflections and friends that play that role. I dearly love and value my friends more than gold. I like to think that I’m a simple girl next door, but my astrological sign suggests I that I  may not be so simple at all. I checked in with Yahoo Shine Astrology to see what kind of conversation ‘the stars’ had for a LEO in search of reflection and I found:

“You’re deep in thought on Monday and your heart’s about to pound out of your chest. Whenever you get deep in thought lately, you think of one person in particular. You can’t help what they do to you. Tuesday and Wednesday your heart continues to be a major theme — as do affection, magnificence, warmth, etc. You basically feel like you’re in love with this person and you’re starting to feel confident they may like you back. Thursday and Friday aren’t about love at all — they’re about saving money, figuring out your career plans, etc. — but the weekend is wall-to-wall romance. It’s so fun.”

Sounds fun and promising enough – I’m certainly up for it.
And if good conversation is lurking in the vicinity, 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.

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

From Dallas, to New York, to LA, Phoenix and 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.

TALK TO ME.
