Be like a lion….

Never assume that loud is strong and quiet is weak.

It’s the lion’s silence that signals danger, not his roar.

That is why I love quotes. Message is sent in a very delicate way but yet the meaning is strong.

Do Good Things vs Bad Things

When we do a good thing, it is better for us to keep it to ourselves and maybe that is the reason for people not to realise the good things we do. When we do a bad thing, it is the same, we don’t tell people, but ironically the whole world can know the bad things that we do. Hmmmmm… There are so many quotes about doing good things and bad things.

Buat baik berpada-pada, buat jahat jangan sekali.

Whatever you do, good or bad, people will always have something negative to say.

The best thing is…

Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.

Harold S. Kushner

Make it simple or make it complicated!

We sometime think that if we explain complicated things to others and people don’t understand our explanation, we consider ourselves as great. People are not as intelligent as us, for not being able to understand what we are talking about. Actually we are wrong. When we cannot simplify complicated things, it means we don’t understand what we are talking about. How can we explain things that we don’t understand to others. It is impossible.

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

Albert Einstein

Cheer up when you are under attacked.

When people start attacking you, take it as a good sign. People will attack you when they don’t feel secure. Feeling insecurity can be caused by many factors. Some of the reasons I can think of are

  1. your enemy cannot find faults in you
  2. you ignore their existence
  3. you hold tight to your principles no matter who they are
  4. your enemy finds that they cannot use you

The enemy wouldn’t be attacking you if something very valuable wasn’t inside of you. You have got purpose!

Quote of the day.

I would like to share a quote I got from watching a Korean movie entitled ‘The Spy Gone North”.

If you want honey,

sometimes you get stung.

It is true, isn’t it? Success will not come without sacrifice. It is even mentioned in the Al-Quran, life in this world is just a test. Make sure we pass the test to taste the sweetness of heaven. Aamiin.
