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:
THOUGHTS TO PONDER
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
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)
I got a call yesterday informing my BBZ10 was ready for pick-up. I was glad after over a month of not having it and to my surprise, I got a BRAND-NEW replacement of the unit.
Of course, I didn't expect it and I was totally surprised. All I wanted was to have my phone working again. I was told though that in case a problem occurs in the future, I will need to go to a different office somewhere Rama 4. I took a photo of the information just in case, someone else might need this.
I'm definitely happy and satisfied with BlackBerry's service. Perhaps I'm lucky my mobile was under its warranty when it stopped working and with an appropriate response to it plus of me having it not just back, but a brand-new one is great.
One thing I'm concerned now though is I badly need a new FLIP SHELL as my existing white is broken. It is pricey and there's no way I can buy it here in Thailand. I have been wallking around IT shops looking for BlackBerry Shell or cover and there was nothing. It is my wish to get a new Flip Shell either Red or Black. Need it badly to protect my phone.
For now, my happy days will set only on taking selfies. I'll wait when that new Flip Shell comes some time...any time.
I'm a CEBUANA working here in Bangkok.
For now, I'm quite tied up with work and I love what I'm doing. I enjoy my work in here as there's balance between teaching adults and young learners. I'm contented with the variety my work offers, I get to learn everyday both in my field and life's dealings. I get the chance to unwind and go travel on breaks. Other than that, I go hang out, shopping, dine and sometimes whine hehehe!. Or when bored, I write...yeah, blogging is one :D
