Honoring Empress Menen
"All of you knew her well but she was more intimately known by I. She was devoutly religious and did not lose her faith even in the time of hardship. During the memorable days of Our companionship we never had differences that needed the intervention of others. As Sarah was to Abraham, so was she obedient to I. Our wishes were mutual until we were separated by the Almighty. Her assistance for the good of the young, the old and the needy requires no testimony for they are greater than thoughts and words. We have been extremely pleased to live long enough in the perfect union that enabled us to see our offspring, our grandchildren and our great grandchildren. We are thankful to the Almighty for having vouchsafed to us that long uninterrupted union which is not very common in the world today: There could be no more profound prayer for I to utter." ~ Haile Selassie I
The Timeless Words of Empress Menen Asfaw!
"Even though world's women are living in different countries with different climates, all women are interrelated
with the same will and objectives."

"Ethiopians live together working and praying, loving and honoring the Almighty, but the enemy is trying to devastate the wealth of the country and destroy our family in the name of modernization. We pray to the Almighty not to face such distress and destruction should the so-called modernization bring a large calamity."

“H.I.M. King of Kings knew that there is nothing better for the advancement of a country’s progress and development than education. In this regard, H.I.M. built many schools for boys. But if girls are left behind without receiving a regular education, they may have a great disadvantage. That is why I opened this school for the merit of girls 25 years ago, because I knew girls should learn as boys do."

"Strength and honor are her clothing, and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with knowledge, and her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her love; Her king also, and he praises her. Many daughters have done virtuously, But thou excellest them all. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who loveth the Most High shall be praised. Give her of the fruits of her hands and let her own works praise her in the gates. - Proverbs 31:25-31" (Teachings of Empress Menen of Ethiopia by M.T. by M.T. AbegazeYehuda)
Ras Tafari is a Force for Good ... On Every Level.
"As we have said time and again, those trained in the field of public health must have a deep-seated desire to serve their country and people...their humanitarian outlook and patience should be deeply embedded in their personality, and that their forefathers' courage and patriotism should be their guidelines." Important Utterance of H.I.M. p. 219
