Talented and Creative – Let’s honor his memory from his very words…Enjoy…

“Sometimes you need to get knocked down before you can really figure what your fight is and how you need to fight it.”

“When you invest in a seed, watching it grow without you, that is a bitter pill to swallow,” he said. “Sometimes you need to feel the pain and sting of defeat to activate the real passion and purpose that God predestined inside of you.”

“Throughout ancient times,” Boseman said, “institutions of learning have been built on top of hills to convey that great struggle is required to achieve degrees of enlightenment.” As he delivered the commencement speech at Howard University in 2018, he said, “Each of you had your own unique difficulties with the hill. When completing a long climb, one first experiences dizziness, disorientation, and shortness of breath due to the high altitude. But once you’re accustomed to the climb, your mind opens up to the tranquility of the triumph. Savor that taste of your triumphs today. Don’t just swallow the moment whole without digesting what has actually happened here. Look down over what you conquered and appreciate what God has brought you through.”

“When you are deciding on next steps, next jobs, next careers, further education, you would rather find purpose than a job or a career. Purpose crosses disciplines. Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history.”
