<p>Inspiring quotes for singles.Here is a startling fact: The selection you make of a marriage partner may well have more to do with the quality of your marriage than anything you do after getting married. Neil Clark Warren</p> <p>Olufemi Fasanya 08037257479, 08083906405 www.femi-fasanya.blogspot.com</p> <p>Introduction</p> <p>Knowledge is power; it does not leave the person who has it the same way. One reason that this is so is the motivating influence that it gives to those that have it. People have gone to wars seemly because they were influenced by the information they were given by power drunk leaders in the past; the rate of immorality, crime and violence have increase at an alarming rate because of the information that we are exposed to through the media. People are so influenced by what they hear that their actions are based on it. There is a Nigerian adage that says, It is better to commit suicide than to pass through certain shame, and because of this statement some Nigerians have committed suicide in the past. The following article from the Punch newspaper of Wednesday, July 20, 2005, with a headline captioned, Four commit suicide weekly in Lagos, An average of four reported cases of suicide or unnatural deaths are recorded weekly in Lagos, investigations have revealed is a prove of the power of influence by information.</p> <p>In the first book I wrote, 21 never singles must observe, in the 15th never; Never hold on to a person, when it is time to let go, I was told by one of the people that got inspired by the saying of Pastor Bimbo Odukoya who said, Never insist on marrying someone who does not want to marry you, and had to quit a relationship that she was in. Such is the power of influence from information that had a positive effect on making people to choose the right decisions to take. Inside of this book are the quotes of fallible men like you and me; men with weaknesses, but in a moment of their lives made statement that did not conflict with the truth from the Word of God and yet has an impacting positive effect on those that heard them when they made it. Such statements are still relevant to as many who want do great and positive things in their generation. My prayer is that the quotes of these men will inspire you as a single to making the right choices in life and especially in the choice of who to get married to and the way you live your life as a single. I also pray that it will stop you and make you to have a rethink on your life and the direction it is heading.</p> <p>Choosing a partner</p> <p>Your choice of a marriage partner is entirely your decision and, moreover, you are free to choose anyone you like. That, however, is as far as your freedom goes, for once you have chosen, you are bound by the responsibilities that go with your choice.
