#Pelajaran Seperempat Abad

Berhubung #pelajaranseperempatabad ini dari awal ditulis sebagai pengingat apa yang saya dapatkan selama saya mencapai usia dua puluh lima tahun, maka sudah saatnya diselesaikan (meskipun telat dua hari. Ha!). Dan karena katerbatasan waktu dan kata - kata, maka untuk menutup postingan #pelajaranseperempatabad, saya ingin menuliskan beberapa quote favorit yang kurang lebih menggambarkan pelajaran - pelajaran lainnya yang saya dapatkan terutama tepat di usia 25 tahun ini.


9. They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself - Andy Warhol

10.  Last night during Taraweh Prayers, in the sermon the speaker mentioned an interesting fact about how only 3% of the Quran is about rules and 97% of it is about ethics. This made me think that many people focus mainly on the rules and give little attention to ethics. We tend to easily feel that we are good when we are praying, eating halal, not drinking alcohol, fasting, etc. Abiding by those rules are wonderful and should be practiced, but neglecting our ethics in how we should be treating others, make negative judgments about people, and feel proud of ourselves when we are abiding by the 3% of rules. The lesson learn is loud and clear: Let’s not stay satisfied with 3%, but think hard and deep about 97% too - Rahman Popal, Kandahar

11. If you love something, let it go. If it was meant to be, it will come back to you - Cecelia Ahern

12. Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck - Dalai Lama XIV

13. Some of the most wonderful people are the ones who don't fit into boxes - Tori Amos

14. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover - Mark Twain

15. The worst of our faults is our interest in other people's faults - Imam Ali bin Abi Thalib

16. The most significant gifts are the ones most easily overlooked. Small, everyday blessings: woods, health, music, laughter, memories, books, family, friends, second chances, warm fireplaces, and all the footprints scattered throughout our days - Sue Monk Kidd

17.  Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them, that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like - Lao Tau


18. You don't have to judge the whole world by your own standards. Not everybody is like you, you know - Haruki Murakami

19. The best way to know life is to love many things - Vincent Van Gogh

20. In order to determine whether we can know anything with certainty,  we first have to doubt everything we know - Ted Mosby

21. Everybody knows that everybody's normal till you get to know them better. But instead of not getting to know anybody, you're still willing to get to know strangers because you want to cure you loneliness, because you don't want to spend holiday seasons alone watching woodie allen movies. And the cycle goes like this: strangers become non strangers become strangers. All over again - Lala Bogang

22. Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about - Wendy Mass

23. You don't need an expensive camera to capture beauty. All you need is a good pair of eyes and a story within every shot you captured - Dylan Sada

24. The truth is, everybody is going to hurt you. You just gotta find the ones worth suffering for - Anonymous

25. Don't wish me happiness, I don't expect to be happy all the time. It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humour. I will need them all - Anne Morrow Lindbergh
