 Please suggest one or two of your favorite quotes you would like to see written in Dinka:

1. English: We're hanging in there.
    Dinka: Ɣok buɔ̈c 

2. I am [still] hanging in there.
    Ɣɛn [ŋoot/ŋuɔɔt] ë buɔ̈c.

3. English: Falling down is how we grow. Staying down is how we die. -- reference lost for now

4. English: The struggle continues
    Dinka: Tɔŋ aruat

Albert Schweitzer: 

 English:  "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." ~ 

Dinka: Në pïïric të nɔŋ raan ëbën, në thaa dɛ̈, ke many dɛ̈p në wɔ yiic e yai. Ku ka ye bɛɛr took në raan dɛ̈ cë yök kennë wɔɔk. Apieth buk keek ya leec ke keek man ye mɛ̈i ke wɔ yiic took.


English: "He who knows a thing that is right, but does not explain it with clearness, is no better than if he had never had a conception of it."

Dinka: "Yen mɛn nyic kë pieth, ku cïï lëu në lëk kɔc ë gɔk, aŋuɛ̈n ë lɔn ee dë kën kan nyic. "

English: "While poverty is nothing disgraceful for a man to confess, but not to escape it by exertion is more disgraceful."

Dinka: "Na cɔk ya mɛn cen ye yicliɛɛr yen bë raan rɔt gäm ŋɔ̈ɔ̈ŋ, ke bë raan ŋɔ̈ɔ̈ŋ thueet në nyiɛɛi acuk ya yicliɛɛr dïït gök." 

English: "We enjoy a form of government which does not copy the laws of our neighbors; but we are ourselves rather a pattern to others than imitators of them. In name, from its not being administered for the benefit of the few, but of the many, it is called democracy."

Dinka: "Wɔ nɔŋ miirï mac në lööŋ cïï keek ye lɔ miit të nɔŋ kɔc mɛt wɔ ke akɛ̈ɛ̈th; aye wɔɔk keek ka ye keek kuanycök ku wɔ cïï kɔc kɔ̈k ye kuanycök. Në rin, nëkë cen ye kë de kɔc lik, ku ye kë de juääc, yennë miirï daanë aye cɔɔl demokëratia." 

John Stuart Mill:

English: "A pupil from whom nothing is ever demanded which he cannot do, never does all he can."

Dinka: "Mɛnh piööcë ce thiëëc bë kë cïï lëu në luɔi looi, alëu bë kɔ̈ɔ̈k lëu keek në luɔi thueet."

English: "The whole foundation on which my life was constructed fell down."

Dinka: "Thɔ̈ɔ̈ny ë cennë pïïrdië wɛc piny në ye nhom ee wuɔ̈p."

Che Guevara: 

English: “If you tremble indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine.”

Dinka: "Na ye ŋeeny yï lath të tïŋ yïn kë rɛɛc luië raandɛ̈ ke yïn ye raan mɛ̈ɛ̈th wuɔ."

English: “Better to die standing, than to live on your knees.”

Dinka:  "Aŋuɛ̈n ba thou ke yï kääc në pïïr bïn pïïr ke yïn tuɔ̈knhiɔl."

English: "I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man."

Dinka:  "Anyiɛc lɔn ë bïï yïn ba ɣa bɛ̈n nɔ̈k. Moc ɣɛɛn ariɔ̈c; kë ba nɔ̈k ee raan abac." 
[Ee lueel ke ɣoi raan moc ye nhom nyin]

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm
a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with
a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

than ever before.

intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
enlightening to read?

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article
or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of
the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout
of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your web site.

how to get pregnant
Enjoy your sexual contact - Often when we are focused upon the end result we desperately want, getting pregnant and having a baby, our sexual desire turns into the "timing game". This is basically a weak cervix that tends to dilate before the fetus has reached full term.
