A Passionate Spirit

"There are people of spirit and there are people of passion but much less common that one might think. Rarer still are the people of passion and spirit. But rarest of all is a passionate spirit."

Motor Kebaikan














Maaf, fotonya agak blur karena mengambilnya dari majalah. Suka terenyuh kalau tiap kali melihat hal seperti gambar di atas. Terutama secara langsung, dan sering kali secara langsung. Satu, dua, tiga, empat, lima, sampai enam pribadi yang menumpangi sebuah sepeda motor. Apalagi, kalau yang terbonceng adalah anak-anak.

Inginnya bila ada orang kaya yang melihat hal itu di jalan, lalu tiba-tiba membelikan atau menyumbangkan mobil kepada orang-orang yang mengalami seperti paragraf pertama di atas. Kalaulah saya sudah benar-benar kaya, saya ingin menerapkannya. Itu kalau saya sudah benar-benar kaya, ya : ). Tetapi, apakah arti kekayaan? Apakah yang dapat membuat seseorang mampu memiliki motor kebaikan yang selalu menggerakkannya untuk mau memberikan sesuatu?

Apa yang di Dalam, Apa yang di Luar



















Apa yang ada di luar memang belum tentu menggambarkan apa yang ada (terjadi) di dalam.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

…appearances are often very deceptive. You cannot tell from appearances how things will go.”

Where Serius Learning Is Seriously Fun













The (new) book of knowledge. I kinda agree with a headline of an advertisement I read recently which says, Where Serius Learning Is Seriously Fun. Yes, perhaps learning something or receiving knowledge should be a fun thing to do, or to get and share, right?

"I firmly believe that knowledge must not be walled up in the academy, but must be freely and enthusiastically disseminated to all those 'who have ears to hear.'"
Lou Markos

"Learning is primarily a social act rather than an individual accomplishment. We learn from other people by 'joining the literacy club' of people we see ourselves as being alike."
