"Maaf," desahmu pelan.
"Ini hari raya, kupinta maafmu," ulangmu lagi, mendesak.
"Kau salah apa?"
Tak bisa kuberikan maafku hari ini. Kupinjamkan saja, maka harus kau kembalikan.
No longer is it self-seeking, a sinking in the intoxication of happiness; instead it seeks the good of the beloved: it becomes renunciation and it is ready, and even willing, for sacrifice.
41 Every year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the Festival of the Passover.
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Dan Yesus makin bertambah besar dan bertambah hikmat-Nya dan besar-Nya, dan makin dikasihi oleh Allah dan manusia.
"You may not always like your family, but you will always love them."
When you leave no room in your mind and heart that your opinion MIGHT be incorrect.
When you don't know that you MIGHT not know anything.
When you act as if you're the most hurt person in the world while others are MIGHT be suffering the same (if not worse) shit as you are.
That's when you leave so little space for your mind and heart to be opened.
And that's when you will start acting like a smartass, like every other people are wrong and you're the only one who's correct.
That's when your head and heart start hardening, and you get all defensive, and too stiff and serious.
You can't see the funny in any jokes, you take any words to your heart, you assume that any words spoken from others are directed to you.
Oh my.. If only you'd listen to Damien Rice and realize that "It's not hard to grow, when you know that you just don't know."
"Sometimes, I felt like my mom was an embarassment. There were times when I couldn't understand why she doesn't seemed to have self-consciousness or a sense of pride, and I got angry. I didn't realize it then, but it was because there was something precious that she wanted to protect more than herself, and that is me. When true love manifests, it doesn't allow one to be concerned over one's pride, and causes one to cast it aside. That's why mothers are strong. They say God created mothers because they can't be everywhere at once. Even when one becomes a mother, one's mother is one's guardian angel, and even saying the word 'Mom' is something that has the power to tug at one's heartstrings. Mothers are always strong."
Bukan salah anak konglomerat kalau dia punya banyak uang.
Bukan salah orang yang luwes kalau dia punya banyak teman.
Bukan salah orang yang pandai kalau dia punya banyak pengetahuan.
Bukan salah orang yang rajin bekerja kalau dia tidak punya banyak waktu.
Bukan salah orang yang menarik kalau dia punya banyak penggemar.
Bukan salah orang yang tulus kalau ia bisa mencintai dengan sederhana.
Selama mereka tidak menyakitimu, apakah kelebihan mereka itu menjadi dosa?
Jangan gunakan kelebihan orang lain sebagai alatmu untuk menyakiti mereka.
Jangan jadikan kelebihan orang lain sebagai pembenaranmu saat menyakiti mereka.
Orang-orang itu juga punya hati. Entah hati itu mati atau tidak, bukanlah hak siapapun untuk menyakitinya.
Wouldn't it be nice to consider these once in a while?
