"I believe he should go through a bit of hardship and strict education. He should be disciplined if he makes mistake. Only then will he mature and become independent." ~ Hong Kong actor Francis Ng on his son Feynman :)
"The better we become, the higher we climb. The higher we climb, the bigger our ego. The bigger the ego, the harder it is for us to look at others the same way we did before as we can get so full of ourselves we lose our true self. Always be humble. Even if you're good. Always." ~ Lik Hock Yap Ivan :)
“You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.”
“No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side.
To make a good compliment even better, explain why we like something and not just what we like. People will understand our reasons for complimenting them and will be less likely to wonder about our motives :)
“If I had to give my younger self some advice, I think it would be that you have to laugh at things — things that scare you, things that intimidate you, things that hurt you, when you’re humiliated, when you’re rejected, you have to be able to take these bad experiences you have and turn them into a great dinner party joke.” ~ Taylor Swift :)
"Do you ever just look at someone and I don’t mean just glance at them but really study them and you see the way their eyelids fold and the way their lips curl and dimples appear and see laughter in their eyes when they smile and think 'wow I literally don’t want to be with anyone else ever for the rest of eternity' " ~ Author Unknown :)
"Friends will come and go. There will be one or two who will stick around forever but the majority of friendships fade in and out. Sure you can say what really matters is the memories but if you think back, I’m sure you can find what you gained or learned from it. And hopefully, how it impacted you and shaped you for the better." ~ Audrey T. :)
"If it’s differences in life priorities or even certain values or ethics that clash, those don’t really bother me cos I believe the people I’m friends with are generally decent people. And that they treasure me as a friend in return." ~ Audrey T. :)
Where is the sense of humour? People should just get along. Or leave each other alone. Whatever works. Stop hurting one another with our words. Written or spoken." ~ Sharon Au :) Don't hurt people with our action...
"Recently some stuff happened that caused me to have a good long think about friendships and myself. I do feel that I am quite a different person throughout different points in my life. And my friendships and the people I am friends with reflect that. So I was thinking about my friendships – present and past, friendships that stayed and those that didn’t – and realized that I’ve learned a lot about myself and about people." ~ Audrey T. :)
“No, it’s not that. It’s something more. It’s how suddenly they become a priority in your life. Suddenly you have this person standing right in front of you that means the whole world for you and you’re willing to walk through fire for that same person. You’re willing to make a change in your life because when they show you the real them, the raw part, the ones they don’t show others. You just can’t help but go a little crazy, and you’re lucky if it’s just crazy. So it’s not about the presence really, it’s about trusting you with the raw parts.” ~ Author Unknown :)
There are times when the Lord invites me into silence—a time where he wants me to simply listen, meditate, and reflect. In those times of silence, I can feel Him editing my perspective to come back in alignment with the Truth. I know myself. If you have been around long enough, you have probably seen how my opinions have changed, and I’m just here to say thank you. Thank you for the grace you have towards me. Thank you for giving me room to grow. Thank you for being the voices of love and truth in my life. Thank you for using your voice for things that have eternal value. Thank you for being imitators of God in how you offer your own voice, and desire it to be used for the good of others. Thank you for being a part of this special community of believers on Blogger. The way you offer your own voices challenges me, changes me, and awakens me to the beauty of the Gospel. It is in the little ways you share your joy, your pain, your doubt, your fears, and your hope that I am reminded of how powerful and vital our voices are. Thank you for using your voice, and for listening to mine :)
