Hello, I am renowned researcher and historian, Dr. Katsumi Takayama. I am also the caretaker of Koko, the talking gorilla. Although known mostly for speaking, Koko also loves to read; some of his favorite books are about finance, investing, and building wealth.While Koko does love reading, Koko does not know how to write. Pencils don't quite fit well into his hands and his gorilla fingers are too thick to use a typewriter. Therefore he asked me to share with you his 115 favorite quotes about money and wealth. Some are funny, some are serious, and some even include his personal commentary. We hope you enjoy...

This masterful book investigates and analyzes several aspects of money among the Yoruba of Nigeria. Falola and Adebayo explore the origin, philosophy, uses, politics, and problems of acquiring and spending money in Yoruba culture. No prior book exists on this aspect of a major ethnic group in Africa with established connections with the black Diaspora in North America and the Caribbean. Conceived so that each chapter may be read individually, the volume is divided into three parts. Part 1, "Money and Its Uses," focuses on the transition from barter to cowry currency, the idealistic and pragmatic views of money, the impact of monetization on social stratification, accumulation among members of the elite, and the development of savings, banking, and credit institutions. Part 2, "Money and Its Problems," investigates the social, political, and cultural problems of money, including money-lending, theft, counterfeiting, and corruption. Part 3, "Money and Oil Economy," assesses the impact of the oil industry on the Nigerian state and examines both the positive and negative effects of oil money on Yoruba economy, society, and spending. Concluding chapters detail efforts to arrest the crisis that followed the economic slump after the oil boom and led to the adoption of the Structural Adjustment Program, and also evaluate the effects of currency devaluation on personal and communal responsibilities and social payment. Culture, Politics, and Money Among the Yoruba is timely in view of ongoing political and economic changes in Africa. It will be of interest to economists, sociologists, and African studies specialists. Toyin Falola, a leading historian of Nigeria and a distinguished Africanist, is professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin. His books include Decolonization and Development Planning and Violence in Nigeria. He is at the moment completing a study on the history of Nigeria. Akanmu Adebayo is a professor of history at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia. His latest book is Embattled Federalism: A History of Revenue Allocation in Nigeria.

There were two souls in the universe waiting to be united. One individual was in Rhode Island, and the other was in Massachusetts. One was a tiny toy poodle, and the other was a compassionate human being. Both were struggling with challenges in their lives before the union. Neither one knew they were going to meet someday. The human being had a vision to the universe to find a toy poodle. Perhaps the tiny poodle also had a vision to the universe to find a loving home. The tiny poodle was a scrubby stray found on a hot day under a car, with hair so long and badly matted, he could not even move. He weighed three pounds. The human read about the tiny poodle and went to the shelter, where they cleaned him up so well that he looked so beautiful. Five people were interviewed, but the compassionate human was the lucky one chosen, or they were lucky to find each other. They brought each other peace, comfort, and love in a true, loving bond. It was meant to be. They awakened each other’s souls and had such an amazing journey together that will touch your heart.

“The leopard’s stealthy gait is not a result of cowardice; it is simply stalking a prey.” (Do not mistake people’s gentle nature for spinelessness.) “The rabbit that eats yams and enjoys them will return for more.” (People remember good experiences and seek their repetition.) “The chicken sweats, but its down prevents us from knowing.” (Everybody has his or her problems, although strangers may not guess.) “The mouth does not say, ‘I ate once before.’” (Hunger is not something one assuages once and for all.) “It is a light rain that chases a child indoors; it is a raging torrent that shakes the raffia palm to its roots.” (Every person, however lowly or mighty, has his or her nemesis.) Yoruba Proverbs is the most comprehensive collection to date of more than five thousand Yoruban proverbs that showcase Yoruba oral tradition. Following Oyekan Owomoyela’s introduction, which provides a framework and description of Yoruba cultural beliefs, the proverbs are arranged by theme into five sections: the good person; the fortunate person (or the good life); relationships; human nature; rights and responsibilities; and truisms. Each proverb is presented in Yoruba with a literal English translation, followed by a brief commentary explaining the meaning of the proverb within the oral tradition. This definitive source book on Yoruba proverbs is the first to give such detailed, systematic classification and analysis alongside a careful assessment of the risks and pitfalls of submitting this genre to the canons of literary analysis.

The apocalypse didn’t arrive with nuclear war or a plague of zombies, just a quiet virus that sterilized most everyone and put humanity's future in jeopardy. Fifty years later, seventeen-year-old Ed Johnson plies his musical talents in New Philadelphia, jumping at the chance to help launch a coworker’s band. But Quinn, their beautiful bassist, is inexplicably cold toward him, and other strange things are afoot. In spite of a growing unease, Ed shrugs off being stalked by a crazy, old Native American and a frightening crone. But when nightmare creatures threaten his sister, Ed discovers he is bound to the strangers. To get out of this mess, he must enlist the help of his friends and Quinn, who harbors her own dark secret. But there is little time for Ed to discover the true power of music and save them, himself, and perhaps the future of the human race.
