希望。遗忘

美梦的开始

我是家中的老二,从小就夹在大哥与小弟中间。我的存在总被忽视,我的牺牲与付出是理所当然的。那年,合唱团欲筹办大型歌舞剧,要求校友帮忙。时间上配合得来,我也就答应了。没想到,这竟是美梦的开始。经过几个月的筹备,演出终于圆满落幕。谢幕后,你走过来,将一个印上我姓名的小杯子递给我,并感谢我抽出时间参与演出。我不是在做梦。终于有人注意到我的存在。我的付出不被当成理所当然。只是一个印上我姓名的小杯子,但却盛着满满的暖意,也燃起了我心中的希望。


期望

年底,学校派合唱团出国比赛,校友也获邀一同参赛。结伴同游的这几天,心中有个小小的愿望期望有机会更了解你、期望在你心中我能从一个普通的校友成为一位能谈心的知己。


盼望

我是幸运的。没想到出国比赛后,学校竟安排合唱团到本地知名的购物商场报佳音,一个星期数次。这让我有更多的机会和你相处。你总是设身处地地为他人着想,以至常常累坏自己的身体。看了真让我心疼,只盼望你能给我机会好好照顾你。


渴望

本想默默地在你身边照顾你就好了,但原来人是贪心的。愚蠢的我还是找了机会向你告白,渴望你能打开心中的那扇门,让我进入,成为你生命的一部分,成为你的守护者。这样,美梦就成真了。


绝望

期望、盼望、渴望只是我一个人的奢望。

梦醒了。

如今只剩下美梦幻灭后的绝望。

也许,我不该做梦。

遗忘。

我。。能。。

遗忘。。。

Quotes 2009

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out who you are; seek to determine who you want to be.
~Neale Donald Walsch

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
~Colin Powell

Strength and courage aren't always measured in medals and victories. They are measured in the struggles they overcome. The strongest people aren't always the people who win, but the people who don't give up when they lose.
~Ashley Hodgeson

Successful people aren't born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don't like to do. The successful people don't always like these things themselves; they just get on and do them.
~William M Thackeray

The tragedy of life is not found in failure but complacency. Not in you doing too much, but doing too little. Not in you living above your means, but below your capacity. It's not failure, but aiming too low, that is life's greatest tragedy.
~Benjamin E Mayes

In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope
In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort.
In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream.
And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
~Michael Jackson

Men often become what they believe themselves to be.
If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it, even if I didn't have it in the beginning.
~Mahatma Gandhi

Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves.
~Helen Keller

What I do you cannot do; but what you do I cannot do. The needs are great and none of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things with great love. And together we can do something wonderful.
~Mother Teresa

Nothing good for this world is ever attained without sacrifice. Nothing great in life is ever achieved without hard work. Nothing that we give to others, out of the goodness of our heart, is ever given without giving away a small piece of ourselves.
~Jay Goldman

Give out today like you will not see the next second; take in today like you will live for another 100 years to see the consequence of what you took in. What you take in determines your destiny and what you give out determines your legacy.
~Leussa Adrienne

You have a brush in one hand and paint in the other. You just need to realize that you are the Artist of your own destiny. The outcome of such a realization will transform the road ahead of you into canvas, waiting only for you to start painting.
~Conroy Sewepagaham

Failing Forward

Got this from John C Maxwell's Failing Forward...

Failure is the price we pay to achieve success.

Hence, we should not be afraid of failures because that's the only way we can get to success.

A Lawyer and a Chinese

Just read it as a joke. No offence intended.

A lawyer and a Chinese are sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The lawyer thinks that all Chinese are so dumb that he could get over on them, easy.

So the lawyer asks if the Chinese would like to play a fun game. The Chinese is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and says that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says. This catches the Chinese's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from The Earth to the Moon?'
The Chinese doesn't say a word, reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the Chinese's turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?' The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the Chinese and hands him $500. The Chinese pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the Chinese up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?' The Chinese reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
