Do you know, static clocks move faster than moving clocks?

Do you know, silence is not the best response to a fool?

Do you know, a man is also a woman?

Do you know, snakes don't  like to bite?

Do you know, monkeys hate banana trees?

Did you know Africans loved being colonised?

But do you know, every African is autonomous by nature?

Did you know, freedom is not free at all?

I'm  sure you know that blood is ticker than water.

But do you know love is bloodier than blood?
