The words of poet, philospher and artist Khalil Gibran confronts me today with a lot of wisdom. Since it is a Sunday,let me share them with you. Hope these words inspire you, like they have inspired me, to face the coming challenges ahead:
Say NO to feudalism
Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.
Is this the future for Malaysians?
Coming generations will learn equality from poverty, and love from woes.
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
To the murderer of innocent lives
If my survival caused another to perish, then death would be sweeter and more beloved.
For those who love freedom
Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.
If you believe another government, other than BN/UMNO is possible
March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life’s path.
The perfect leader
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble and beautiful end of a human being.
Justice and mercy
The just is close to the people’s heart, but the merciful is close to the heart of God.
(For those wondering if you could trust) Anwar Ibrahim?
To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.
Countries who love to go to war
Where is the justice of political power if it executes the murderer and jails the plunderer, and then itself marches upon neighboring lands, killing thousands and pillaging the very hills?
HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY!
