Yes, That’s Me
“Happiness is a choice. Nothing will bother you much or for so long if you give any Happiness or Happy Moments a chance within you. =]” – Ko
“A true master who knows self well will always be an apprentice – and very good at it – in this world where there are many knowledgeable and interesting things to learn about…” – Ko
“Imagine the day when the gap and/or differences among people from any country, background, religion, status, etc will no longer be discriminatingly viewed as “they are what they are” by nature but only by position defined by mankind; we are all equal. =]” – Ko
“Being serious all the time without laughters, smiles, and fun moments in your life is not good. Just have fun reasonably, but be ready to get serious when needed” – Ko
“We’re all born with a License to Learn. Don’t quit learning or when some ‘moments of truth’ get you, you won’t know how to act or cope. …” – Ko
“FATE: a word of excuse for the fallen who did not try well or do not wish to get back up & a word of neglect of self worth for the victors who praised destiny, anything, anyone but self for the triumph. =\” – Ko
“A person’s motives for venturing into the new unfamiliar fields are admirable regardless of the outcomes of that person’s actions. =]” – Ko
To meaningfully say “I love you”, one must first be able to say the “I.” To be able to say this “I”, one must know Self in its trueness at a rational level, pass the desires and emotions. To know Self, one must habituate self to act and be motivated like an egoist and reject egotism and conformism. Abstinence of mastering such foundations, common nowadays, lead to breach of promises and devaluation of the word ‘love’ or any words following the “I”. – Ko
“It’s sad to see when a person overlooks own flaws or designates own imperfection as a unique all-must-follow perfection and points out the flaws in or even the neutral acts of others as bad to redeem oneself as modern and cool. =\” – Ko
“Sometimes cutting off contacts and forgetting everyone/event out of memory is better than the most painful recalling of ALL memories from ALL friends from ALL places I’ve been ” – Ko
"It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul" – William Ernest Henley … "And those who believe in fate mastering them are those looking for a medium to blame upon once they fail or to praise upon during success depreciating their own worth, hard works & possession of rationality" – Ko
"Fallacy of the great mind of a person begins when the person chose desires and thoughts over reasoning; Fallacy of that person begins once the person not only lost the mind but also the trusts and value of self; Partial fallacy is at work when the person deviated from the balance into the upper or lower extremes; Total fallacy is at its completion once the person became overwhelmed by nonselfs and chose to become an object, living for the others but not for oneself" – Ko (was, is, and will always be)
"Good & bad memories from the past can come haunt you and be hindrances in your future. In turn, thinking & worrying about future can hinder your present actions. To avoid all hindrances and to succeed, one must sort, block, solve, and act accordingly doing the best daily." – Ko
"In life, a fastfoward button is better than a pause or rewind one. Forwarding is for the strongs who are ready to face & conquer anything; Pausing is for the weaks who love the moment & don’t want change; Rewinding is for the same ones & also those who dwell in the past; Latter two bringing potential fallacy to self &… blocking own’s better success" -Ko
"A country itself is worth nothing, but people within are priceless" – Ko
"If you work your way up, you’ll understand life from every aspects, but if you got demoted in life, you’ll hate life" – Ko
"If you work your way up, you have nothing to hide and don’t need to act like what you’re not, but if you get demoted, you will sadly disgustingly become an actor trying to get accepted and will hide your past" – Ko
[Rise and rise again until the lambs become lions.]
[To try to build for the future, you must set your foundations strong. The laws of [the] land enslaved people to its [leader], a [leader] who demands loyalty but offers nothing in return. In tyranny, lies only failure. If you build a [nation], you build it like a cathedral, from the ground up. And power every man and the [leader] will gain strength. If the [leader] were to offer justice, justice in the form of a charter of liberty, allowing every man to furnish for his heart… to be safe from convictions without cause or prisons without charge, to work, eat and live on the sweats off his own ground and be as many as he can. And that [leader] will be great. Not only will he receive the royalty of his people, their love as well. Every man’s house is a castle. Then it is liberty, liberty by law.]
"I stand by my right to speak freely."
"I’m a man of my convictions. Call me wrong, call me right. But I bring my better angels to every fight. You may not like where I’m going, but you sure know where I stand. Hate me if you want to, love me if you can"
"I don’t claim to be a wise man, a poet or a saint. I’m just another man who’s searching for a better way. But my heart beats loud as thunder, for the things that I believe. Sometimes I wanna run for cover. Sometimes I want to scream"
"Don’t talk about it but be about it"
"The man without fear is the man without hope"
"Live for nothing, die for something"
