Quotations Collection Part 2


“No matter how much you hate yourself, in the end you still can’t run away from yourself, don’t you think? There’s no one who’s perfect. Even if you’re selfish and so awkward that you hate it, you have no choice but to bear with all of that and keep on living.” (from a Manga)

“True, if you work, you can survive. But living isn’t all about working, right? A job is the same as your clothes. It’ll tell you what kind of person someone is.” You-know-from-who (from a Manga too, but I forget it)

“Don’t lose focus. Are you thinking that you’re looking for a job because everyone is also doing that? If you don’t know what you’re doing that for, it’s totally meaningless. It’s fine to be enthusiastic, but use this (your head).” OM, from MR again (I begin to remember it…)

“You should fight with what you already have, not putting on a show, not fearing anything.” from MR 16.6.12 (yes, a manga that I read at that date, month and year)

“Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” –W. O. Yeast

” Jika engkau bisa, jadilah seorang ulama. Jika engkau tidak mampu, maka jadilah penuntut ilmu. Bila engkau tidak bisa menjadi seorang penuntut ilmu, maka cintailah mereka (para penuntut ilmu) dan jika engkau tidak mencintai mereka, janganlah engkau benci mereka.” Umar Bin Abdul Aziz from a friend’s weblog

“Love and dreams are miraculous. They don’t need to be heard, to be said or translated.” from Hear Me, a movie

“You get the best out of others when you get the best out of yourself.” — Harvey S. Firestone

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” — Mark Twain

“A man begins cutting his wisdom teeth the first time he bites off more than he can chew.” — Herb Caen

“We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” — Angelina Jolie

“Isn’t the reason you’re feeling regret, because you didn’t do anything?” from CY in “Reaching You” (a Manga)

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” — Nelson Mandela

“The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.” — Oprah Winfrey

“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.” — Marcus Aelius Aurelius

“Ada satu hal yang jelas bagiku: kemanfaatan. Kemanfaatan adalah yang diharapkan oleh kehidupan. Ketika kau berusaha untuk bermanfaat, Allah akan memberikan tempat bagi kita dan kemanfaatan kita. Aku hidup karena aku tidak diciptakan dengan sia-sia, bukan? Kita semua begitu, apapun yang kita bisa, siapapun kita. Jika kita tidak ada gunanya, sejak awal kita tidak pernah ada.” MOM, 26.3.13 (My-Own-Mind, Aftina Nurul Husna)

“The strong manly ones in life are those who understand the meaning of the word patience. Patience means restraining one’s inclinations. There are seven emotions: joy, anger, anxiety, adoration, grief, fear, and hate, and if a man does not give way to these he can be called patient. I am not as strong as I might be, but I have long known and practiced patience. And if my descendants wish to be as I am, they must study patience.” Tokugawa Ieyasu
