To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

Surprising morning!

I had  a good time at work yesterday had fun with students. They were so lovely! After work, I went to one of my faves, KFC satisfying my craving, yes, I had my orders upsized! :D

Thought of dropping by The Mall but guess I used up my time for dinner so headed home straight after. I had green tea and did some stuff on the net, I could't sleep and opted to play with pictures.

It's almost 9am, I just woke up and wait, something is wrong with my lips! I can feel they're dry and was surprised seeing myself in the mirror, it's waaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've got CUTS! I must have bitten myself in my sleep, yeah? :( This is not the first time that happen though, for once I also experienced waking up with blood in my mouth, lots of it. I had to run to the bathroom quick, I was so shocked  what I found in there. No worries, I had probs with my tooth that time was the cause.

On the other hand, oh dear, I'm supposed to go out today.
