Billybuc And Ms Dora: Two Inspirational Hubbers. By Manatita

Updated on November 12, 2017
manatita44 profile image

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

There are many excellent and talented writers on Hub Pages, and there are many good and inspirational ones. Of course a combination of goodness, inspiration, talent and excellence stir many a noble heart, and Hub pages have writers who show both.

This has been demonstrated by some in their prose of sheer beauty, and others in their selflessness, variety, insightfulness and sacrifice. The writer William Holland, aka Billybuc, and Dora Isaac Weithers, aka Ms Dora, are two such people.

Not so long ago, I dedicated a Hub, to Hub Pages. Naturally they are the medium which gives voice to our budding Hubbers. Still, I suspect that they will tell us that we are equally important to them, that they rely upon us for their market, high quality Hubs, ingenuity, and a benchmark of performance which in turn gives credit to their genius. Give and take; receiving and giving; this is the noble game of life, and some people do this in a unique and wholesome way.

Some of Billy's motivational poems are so inspirational! This can easily be seen by the numerous responses and accolades that he gets. Ms Dora carries on diligently with her message of moral goodness and faith in God. She also highlights the aspirations of human endeavours, wherever she finds them, and knows how to compliment.

This brings me back to Billybuc and Ms Dora. Billybuc most certainly gives, when he lets us know that we can change, as in, ‘You Cannot Deny What You are: A Moment with Bill Reflection.’ He tells it like it is in, ‘Are You a Giver or a Taker on Hub Pages?’ In his very popular Hub, ‘Life Sucks And Then You Die ….. Or ….’

Billybuc most certainly inspires us by telling us his own story, letting us know that we can change for the better, and invites us to be PIPO people (positive in/positive out), living ‘life like a hummingbird on speed.’ He has created a website dedicated to this cause, and contributes in a very conscious way, to the betterment of mankind. It is consequently quite usual when he asks us to turn our lives around and ‘see the sunshine rather than the ever-present storm clouds.’

Ms Dora has spent a long time focusing on purity and modesty, encouraging us to love ourselves, and to remember our ancient virtues and values. She seeks to uplift our children, by inspiring us to help them to be the best they can be, by preparing them for tomorrow as in, ‘Purity Quotes to Grab Your Teenagers Attention.’ She reminds us of love and trust in, ‘The Meaning of Trust in Family Relationships,’ and to be exemplary to our kids in, ‘10 Challenges For The New Dad.’ As she says, “Ever so often, show him that you’re awe struck at having such a wonderful creature to be your child.”

The art of aging we are not always good at, simply because we worry or feel insecure about growing old. So Ms Dora is timely in reminding us to love ourselves, to be proud of who we are, and to surrender gracefully to maturity. This we can do even as we continue to strive and not give up. A read of Ms Dora's My Beauty Will Last and Modesty Quotes For Older Women, are very revealing. They show the joys of a women who has experienced much, has become wiser for it all, and with true humility, is willing to share and encourage others.

Both writers have different styles, yet are complimentary. My perception is that Billybuc, and ‘smiling Beverly,’ his partner, works with you from where you are, strives to lift you up, and ask you to be your better Self, Ms Dora reminds you of your goodness and relationship with God. Billybuc offers you his soulfulness by identifying your needs and utilising his vast experience to offer you a helping hand, such as with writing skills. Ms Dora plods away in a more gentle and self-effacing way, while reminding us of our true nature. I commend these two Souls and give my gratitude to Hub Pages, for allowing them this platform not only to show, but to improve their artistic ability and writing skills.

Dora and family

      Thank You, Ziyena.

      Happy you stopped to read my poems. I have written a book available on Amazon: My Guru, Sri Chinmoy: Life And Teachings. I am at home with both prose and poetry, but poetry makes me reach for the divine in a more direct way.

      Your sentiment is deeply appreciated. Have a great Christmas!

      I'm with you in recognizing Billybuc's contribution to this community.

      Thanks for initiating this move and perhaps this gives us an avenue to let other writers know that we appreciate their generosity and brilliant deeds.

      What a wonderful hub and how lovely for you to take the time to acknowledge some great fellow hubbers. I, personally, have been following/friend of billybuc and very much appreciate his writings, attitude and mission. I have seen MsDora floating around the hub, but haven't paid her a visit. I will have to make it a point to travel her way.

      Thank you!

      manatita......I thank you for the introduction to Ms Dora, as well as to you! Bill is one of my original "buddies," here on HP and of course he and I have followed each other, shared a mutual respect and admiration and frankly, I couldn't agree with you more! Bill is a leader and exceptional writer, as his massive popularity, proves! UP+++

      A person who is full of heart and wisdom doesn't have to boast his/her talent or abilities just to gain friends and followers. There are individuals raised and born because they are bound to make some changes and instead of being proud they humble themselves before others. But true wisdom can be found to those people who can recognize what is truly an inspiration. People like you, manatita are really kind and you're just to good to be true.
