    (FORMULA FOR SUCCESS)

    Everyday in Africa the gazelle rises with the sun.
    It knows it must run faster than the lion or it
    will die.

    Everyday in Africa the lion rises with the sun.
    It knows it must run faster than the fastest
    gazelle or it will starve.

    Whether you are a lion or a gazelle,
    when the sun rises you better be up and running.

    I must thank you for providing the websites whereby our people can read the quote for themselves...however, since I never CLAIMED IT AS MY OWN INVENTION OR THOUGHT, AND SINCE THE AUTHOR IS ANONYMOUS, YOU NEED TO GET OFF OF THE PERSONAL ISSUES WITHIN YOURSELF AS IT RELATES TO ME. THANKYOU.

    brother Keita, its alright(smile!) I think we all understood it came from some ancient African source, and we know that source chose you as the vehicle for its presentation... I honor you as much as the creator of the parable, because you presented to me griot-style(smile!) Aint nothing wrong with that!(smile!)

    Be easy, good brother, easy...(SMILE!)

    Peace and Blessings!
    Isaiah
