“I swear by you, my God, to make her a light in my heart that will not be extinguished, and to make me a support in her back that will not be broken, for she is from me and I am from her, and we are both the secret of the existence of the other.”

“I only ask you to enter my house with respect. To serve you I do not need your devotion, but your sincerity. Neither your beliefs, but your thirst for knowledge. Enter with your vices, your fears and your hatreds; from the greatest to the smaller ones, I can help you dissolve them. You can look at me and love me as a female, as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister, as a friend, but never look at me as an authority above yourself. If the devotion you have for any god , It is greater than the one you have for the God that is within you, you offend them both and you offend the ONE ”

Archaeological studies suggest that the central ruins and the adjacent valley were home to a Shona community of 10,000 to 20,000 people. This city was the focal point of a prosperous trading empire spanning from the 11th to the 15th centuries. Its economy was primarily based on cattle farming, crop cultivation, and the export of gold to the Indian Ocean coastline. The Kingdom of Zimbabwe, an influential Shona trading empire, had its capital in this city, which is named after the Shona phrase for “stone houses.”

She was a polyglot, as she spoke nine languages, including Ancient Egyptian and the languages of the Parthians, Hebrews, Medes, Troglodytes, Syrians, Ethiopians, and Arabs. This meant that she was able to read any book in the world.

She was also very knowledgeable in various subjects such as geography, history, astronomy, international diplomacy, mathematics, alchemy, medicine, zoology, economics, and more. Despite her many books being destroyed in a fire, some of her herbal remedies and beauty tips have survived.

Additionally, her knowledge of languages allowed her to have access to numerous papyri that are now lost. Her influence on the sciences and medicine was highly esteemed in the early centuries of Christianity, making her an unparalleled figure in human history.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
