Suzy Kassem is an active humanitarian and writer. I’m inspired by her blog and would like to include some quotes to share. I hope these can inspire and help others too:

“Every experience you have in this lifetime was written for you to grow into the light you were meant to become.”

-Suzy Kassem aka Blue Panther

“Children make the best measurements of time. It’s only when I see the son or daughter of a friend or relative over periods of time, do I realize how much time has passed based on how much they’ve grown. Otherwise, I’d have no concept of time whatsoever.”

Suzy Kassem

“There is nothing more rewarding for me than to reward those not expecting to be rewarded.”

-Suzy Kassem

“There is nothing more painful for me than to pay for services never rendered, not performed in good faith, or to hand out money to those expecting to be rewarded for doing absolutely nothing worth rewarding.”

-Suzy Kassem aka Blue Panther

“The current state of the world is forcing a lot of people to dig within themselves to reflect beauty using their own talents and creative abilities. In addition, the state of the economy is making these people use whatever skills they’ve got to make a living by their own means. Now is the time to express yourself…so do it good.”

-Suzy Kassem aka Blue Panther

“There is no point drumming up noise about a cause, if you’re not willing to take a beating for it.”

-Suzy Kassem aka Blue Panther

“Initiative without action is the same as having the mind to acknowledge a problem, but not having the heart to see it through”.

-Suzy Kassem aka Blue Panther

I’ve been looking for a collection of her quotes for a long time! Thank you for posting this!

The problem with Ms. Kassem is she deletes a lot of her content before many get to view it. Sometimes I’ll read something magnificent she wrote only to return later and find it completely erased. Does anybody have anything she wrote years ago? I had a page last year with many of her blog postings but it was pulled off the web without explanation. Any reason for this?

I’d love to read whatever you have Jeff. I was very impressed with the speech she presented last month in Manchester. Her delivery created quite a stir and gave us old goats the will to get active again. Do you have any links? sdreher@hotmail.com

Thank you Loolwa for hosting this site. The information contained is very informative to share with my students. Here is another marvelous quote I would like to contribute regarding Ms. Kassem

“The first major step towards achieving true world peace, and one of the most important pinnacles in the evolution of mankind, is to shift peoples’ perception of how they view wealth. If we can change the way consumers place value on material versus spiritual wealth, we can demolish the media. We can make the government work for us. We can have Big Business serving the vested interests of the people and we can put a halt to advertising puffery, toxic chemicals in our medicines and foods, wars, violence, and corruption. Peacemakers come from all trades. We can be and will be self-sufficient. It starts now. We far outweigh those setting the rules and limitations.” — Suzy Kassem (also known as Blue Panther)
