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

My Birthday 2010 at Waterside Resort Restaurant

Thanks to blogspot I can possibly edit the dates of posting despite it's kind of  a bit late. As of this time it's 2012 but I can get back to 2010 to talk about my birthday. That year 2010 was so busy with work I had to rush from time to time, unfortunately by mid 2011 to this point in time (Feb 2012) I have so much free time and bad luck that kill me to death. Thanks to the memories, I can always get back to them anytime.  This birthday was the best so far since I got here in Th. I got more invites and I had the time to celebrate it although admittedly I had to run from work to home then to the venue.

I've been living my life alone, I've managed it well as there's work that keeps me busy  and gives me enough finance to live life and share. Worries plus problems are just  pinches after all I can divert my focus to work. There are many questions in my head this time in 2010 but managed to make my birthday anyway. Thankful for the blessings, memories to cherish and times that were worth the moments.

Here are my birthday photos and video. :)
