Remarkable Quotes by Patrick Gakumba:
Time is always right to do the right thing
From nowhere to everywhere because of God
Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are
Tough times never last but tough people do
Be nice to everyone because everyone is important in your life
If you cannot fight me, then join me
The difficulty does not mean impossible but means working hard to achieve
