Richard Mofe-Damijo Quotes

“The thing about getting older is that with each passing day you know yourself better, find your voice more and generally become better aware.”

“Two sides to a story does not invalidate the truth of the abused, the molested, the hurting. Do not be quick to rebut someone’s pain.”

“Do not expect a rape story to make sense to you because when a predator strikes, the circumstances are not his first thoughts.”

“If we remember that life is a journey and that every journey has a rest point, we will stop fighting with and getting discouraged by every lull we experience on our life’s journey.”

“Just as we stop to refuel, eat or even stretch out during actual journeys, life sometimes stops us every now and then.”

“Be what, where, who, and how you can be, but by all means, be real.”

“Don’t enter into a relationship with the intent of giving nothing in return. You must be willing to service whatever relationship you have.”

“Have respect, more for yourself than the one you latch onto because it is self-respect that restrains you from behaving in ways that put you in bad light.”

“Never be afraid to pause sometimes to look at yourself in the mirror and ask if all is going well. If not, reappraise. Reassess. Reprogramme. Redirect. Redefine and Rev on.”

“Finding fulfillment in the midst of the storm is a gift from God.”

Relax. Trust the process. It’s easier than you think. Smiling through it all, is all the mask you need to complete the journey.”
