Everyone wants to share in the accolades but no one shares in the pain.
Those who push you hard to try new stuff will go silent when you fail.
Try succeeding and watch them steal all the glory.
When the public calls you out, watch them go deaf.
Don’t believe the hype! They will be too dumb to make a case for you.
The earlier you understand there is no padi in the jungle, the better for everyone.
Show loyalty but don’t expect same.
Let it be a matter of personal principle because loyalty isn’t accompanied by any trophy.
O bu onye ma mmadu na egbu mmadu.
Won’t you rather be disappointed than have a poisoned chalice handed over to you?
Don’t exaggerate or overrate your importance.
More often than not, you are just a pawn.
“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
