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

REJECT RH BILL for good.

It is indeed a slap in the face of each Filipino citizen for some GOVT. OFFICIALS to support and back up the GREEDY private sectors  aspiring for  tax rebates  in exchange of pushing a BILL and NGOs which take note - do not pay taxes at all in FACADE of caring for WOMEN'S HEALTH when all they are up to is the BUDGET and what financial GAINS they can get from what they are advocating.

"CARING" nowadays has tied up with  PRICE TAGS and long term earnings.  The Philippines strongly needs budget for better and genuine healthcare for the sick and the needy, budget to develop skills so more people can stand with their own feet and have better lives away from the POVERTY many of the Filipinos are into and finally, legislating laws for better social values and character. 

We say NO to damping morals, uplifting people's character and status has NOTHING to do with contraception freebies much of the BILLIONS taxpayers funds of it! What we need is true DEMOCRACY when there isn't any money playing field in its core.  This ISN'T certainly what FREEDOM AND SERVICE  are all about-----the BUYS and PAYS.  Thank you Rep. Karlo Nograles for the speech. More information on the vid, it's worth the watch!
