“I didn’t know my own strength!” echoed Whitney.
“I’m at the borderline of my faith; I’m at the hinterland of my devotion; In the front line of this battle of mine, but I’m still alive.” Sade replied.
“Do you feel the same?” Bangles pondered.
How can we orchestrate the symphony of life?
How can we harmonize various aspects of our inner self?

I hope my wide coverage of a multitude of disciplines can help you excel in almost all subjects, particularly science and English, and revel in lifelong learning.

“The best way to learn is to learn from the best!” How can I tell the best from the rest?
“A still mind can still all restless minds!” Might I calm your ‘rough sea’? (No more paradigm shift? 'Transfer' is constant?)
