I THINK WHAT I THINK, SAY WHAT I SAY, AND DO WHAT I DO

I THINK WHAT I THINK, SAY WHAT I SAY, AND DO WHAT I DO

– Cogitations of an Emissary of Conscience

“If you haven’t justly offended someone, you probably haven’t sided with a just cause. If you’ve always been the ebullient fellow, who says the right things at the right times, without affronting anyone, you’ve probably never stood up for something solemn. Someone, somewhere, sometime is somehow outraged by some cause. Even the scriptural saints ‘upset’ the hominids, for siding with the truths of their times and climes. Jesus Christ, Prophet Mohammed (SAW,) and Buddha, among others, were not accepted by all of those who witnessed their spectacles. Hence, who am I, a mere mortal, to assume that all would be pleased with the cause(s) I embrace? Accordingly, I think what I think, say what I say, and do what I do, with the conviction that I owe them to Divinity, Conscience, and Posterity.” – Dele Ajaja
