Quotes through the Years!

A/N: Unbelievably random. I went through all my posts in an account and I cannot believe I’ve been subjected to being random at so many times. And yeah, this still brings crisp memories way back 2009. Though I actually left out more others because I do not have the luxury of time to save them all. But yay for keepsake! Teehee! (^∀^)

2009

Why do people can’t accept things that aren’t in favor to them? Don’t they feel happy for those who receive happiness? Sometimes, we have to accept the fact that we experience sadness. ..and one day, we’ll also be gratified by pure bliss.

People really are selfish. I think it is philosophically innate. It’s just that there’s a thing called control. I realized that controlling self is the best act of concern for others.

Global warming skeptics: Why don’t just take care of the environment than wasting time to neglect the thought. Then, despicable people. Some help. Some clean. Some save. After that, throws trash again. How simple. If we do conserve and care, maybe, we can finally prove that 2012 isn’t true afterall.  Two more years. Two more chances.

*

Everyone is entitled to give his or her opinion. Everyone has the right to express his or her feelings. Yes, it’s true. But is everyone still entitled to his or her opinion and has the right to express his or her feelings while he or she had hurt feelings of others? Think again.

Food. Job. Education. Economic growth. Financial support. Spiritual enlightenment. –I can’t eat pills. I am a future nurse. I don’t even know what specifically RH Bill is trying to point. The country needs stabilization. Money must be of equal value. The Church, instead of tiring her energy to this bill that is useless, must just go forward on focusing the strength of the Filipino spirituality.

*

Ang nakaraan ay nakaraan. Hindi na iyon mababago pero ang kasalukuyan ay nangyayari pa lamang. Pwede itong mabago. Kaya naman kalimutan na ang mga hidwaan. Hindi ko mawari kung bakit nga ba kailangang makipagtalastasan pa, KUNG ANG KAILANGAN AY ANG IBIGAY AY KUNG ANONG GALING MERON KA. God bless everyone.

*

The world watched the whole ordeal. –and most of the people have let out their breaths. It has been tragic and so painful for all. I believe that we should not turn our backs to our country. –despite the unfortunate events that has been happening. Let the lights in our hearts stop in waning for we will rebuild this country. “Hindi lang sila [gobyerno/ibang tao] ang bubuo ng Pilipinas. Tayo rin ay kabilang dito.”

*

2011

Love your Dads and Moms with all your heart. (^_^)V  Don’t let all the realizations hit you too late. -it’s not ‘what they have done or what they haven’t done’ that matters. -try to recover from the bad memories of the past and accept everything.

*

The problems are temporary. The experiences are everlasting. The arguments are temporary. The friendships always strengthened. The exhausting days of work are really depressing. But once the real work begins for a CAUSE, it will always be worth it. NURSING WEEK SY 2011 – 2012. Thank you God for until the end your presence was felt. Remove all bitterness and the feelings of injustice. Make us SERVE you without any regrets. Thank you for the people who worked hand in hand (and still are!) for the spirit of Charity.

Taking time to enjoy random things is one of the good activities of life to be thankful. When you go back to your school to get your requirements and had been in a slump, look up and you will see a sign: “Don’t give up.” When you meet again your friends and had talked about memories, you go home and reflect: “We have done a lot.” Before you reached your home and had been walking to reach it, please be keen because: ‘You will never know when these random things will end.’

*

When you feel like you are giving up, when you feel like you have tons of things to regret, when you have done something wrong in the past, when you cannot help yourself to feel frustrated or whatever it is that makes you restless and anything else, place your hands on your heart and say, All is well. You have the present to be able to do justice in your future. You have God to be able to guide you on your decisions.

*

After everything that has happened, are we giving up? This isn’t how we must roll. Unity towards excellence must always be maintained. Problems are part of living and we must continue to solve it with righteousness and discipline. If all we do is destructively criticize situations, how are we suppose to prosper as one?

*

I have things I want to have in my life. Things that I see from advertisements, things that I see from other people, things that I see written from my wish list. Then it started to get longer, and longer, and longer. These things become my frustration in life and initiate me to reflect on my past decisions, whether or not, they were suitable to attain the seemingly unending wish list. These things… insist me to make the present somewhat unmoving and unnecessary, gaining comparisons to how others actually get what they want. And from there, frustration takes its peak. But as I lay myself down on my bed, savoring the solitude that has always been my favorite time, or as I sit inside the House of Papa, contemplating, there’s this tiny spark in my heart that triggers me to challenge myself and that’s the time when I say, “I.. I actually am willing to give everything up for You and my love ones.”
*
It has been a year and I still smile whenever I remember their strange laughters. It has been a year and I still smile whenever I remember the riots we start when we study so hard and get oblivious test questions. It has been a year and I still smile whenever I remember every moment we had in every corner of that beloved place. It has been a year and still so fresh. It has been a year and still, we’re trudging on our own paths with the Almighty Papa. I think.. I think that’s the vital part.
*
Most of the time, when you say everything is alright, it is ironically the time where everything is anything. But not alright. Right?
*
In a few hours, we will be celebrating his conversion towards Charity, Community, Charism, Christ-centeredness, and Commission, which I, myself is striving to achieve and maintain (and others too). Celebrate his conversion through modelling self to him, sturdy beliefs and eager efforts to proclaim God’s teachings. 2 hours and 15 minutes, Celebrate St. Paul’s Conversion!
*
You know, bittersweet is that taste you taste when you cannot have that person whom you have landed your eyes to but at the same time cannot be yours.
*
When You call me, it is always when I am in so much thoughts. Are You waiting for the answer? Let us wait, Almighty Papa. Still, it’s in Charity that I place myself.
*
Worry may become Future’s best friend. Regret may have been Past’s closest one. Present does not have any special friend. Present likes to deal with.. well, the present.
*
She pledged to Papa that she will always be His soldier. A soldier who does not kill. A soldier who protects His plans. She pledged to Papa that she will strive to gain recognition; not to herself but for His name to be proclaimed. She starts within her self. And then, spreads through different aspects. She hopes you pledge too.
*
The calls are always different. The call sometimes connects you to another line, making you and another ‘become one’. Sometimes it sends you to Him more and forever. And sometimes, the calls get to you and you alone where the caller asks you to charity and service. I think, for now, it’s the last.
*
People have rights and responsibilities. Animals to be taken care of, are our responsibility.
*
Kapag sinabi kong “GRABE NA YANG POLITICAL DYNASTY NA YAN!”, para ba siyang yung mga magulang guro kaya gusto din niyang magturo o kaya doktor na gusto ring sumunod sa yapak ng kanyang mga magulang? Feeling ko nasa tao pa din ang desisyon. Kung nakikita mo na wala namang ginawa yung sinundan niya, decide ka na kung vote ka pa din or wit na. Pero kung may nakita kang surge ng responsibilidad sa tatakbo, ‘di mo pa rin ba feel na iboto siya? Ugh. Magulo ang politika. Pero kailangang bigyan din ng pansin dahil.. bakit nga ba? *kamot ulo*
*
Sala sa init, sala sa lamig. Maaaring umangat lahat kung iniibig. Hindi maintindihan kung bakit pinagkakaabalahan, ang mga bagay na solusyon ay panandalian. Pagkakaisa ang hiyaw ng karamihan, ngunit itong karamiha’y simula rin ng kaguluhan. Ganito nga ba umiikot ang mundo? Ewan nga ba’t lugar nati’y pulos gulo. Iba-iba ang nais, puso’t utak tumatangis. Lahat naman ata’y may sapat na hati ng hinagpis. ‘Di maintindihan kung bakit ganoon. Pare-pareho lang naman ang parito’t paroon. Batas dito, batas doon, batas hanggang dulo. E ano bang nangyayari, may epekto ba sa Pilipino? Sa madaling salita isa parin ang solusyon, Pagkakaisa ho ang natatanging konklusyon.
*
Suddenly, the books came to life. The newer, younger one peep through their place. The oldest of all, looking ragged and all, with scars visible on his face stood up and went forward to face you. Startled, you step back, surprised from the… sudden springing of lives from your once-upon-a-time treasure. “Thank you.”, it says, eyes softening, voice resonating sincerity and relief. “I.. I.. for what?” You stammer. “For letting us live. Up to this time.”, it closes your distance, finally holding your hand. Surprisingly warm, you mentally note. “For letting our stories be passed on to those with hearts that had, and still has, like yours.” “Hearts? Like mine?” You inquire. “Yes. Hearts that crave for learning, Yearn for books to read. Thank you.” It smiles once more. Turns around and approaches the box you have first put it in.
You finally knew right then and there that donating them is the right decision you’ve reached.
Time to relive adventures through another generation.
*
I still am horrendously amazed to how a huma–err, a person.. how a person’s mind works.. when it decides to just automatically turn off.. someone’s life. Or even.. lives.
*
In times like this, when you begin to feel weak on the knees, when you begin to feel horrifyingly ugly to the guts, when you suddenly feel you are being smeared by something so red, dark red that you could not even deny it is not the same with that flowing through your veins.. or arteries.. whichever you prefer, that you begin to doubt the possibility of that two-words everybody, one way or another, wants to achieve. World Peace.
*
Maybe this is related or maybe this is not. But we keep on saying we’re growing, when all I see is more killing. Maybe that is related or maybe that is not. But they keep on saying it is needed, when all I think of is they have the money that is ‘seeded’.
*
Writing makes everything better. Creating a story makes everything perfect.
*
No matter how many politician wannabes poof out from wherever they poof out; No matter how many politicians proclaim their objectives and plots; No matter how many good and sweet talks they provide; No matter how many fail statements they make that makes you angry or hurt; No matter how many proclamation you give against or for a politician; No matter how many PO and OPOs you seem to hear from every politician like, “Hindi ko PO kayo bibiguin dahil kayo PO ang pagsisilbihan ko PO.”; No matter how many spiteful remarks they say to each other like they are kids of the modern era *coughs* Manila mayors *coughs* in the end: Ako pa din boboto. Tingnan natin kung sino okay.
*
Batuhan ng kamalian ang tinuturo ng mga may kapangyarihan. Kung ganyan ang debateng masasaksihan mo at ikaw ay litung-lito. Tanong ko din naman sa sarili kung paano pa ba ako makakapili.
*
Sana’y sa isang panahon ay makakita ako ng isang pag-uusap, direkta man o hindi kung saan: Politiko A ng Partido A: “Nako, magaling yang si Politiko B ng Partido B. Siya’y nakapagpabigay na ng maraming proyekto sa ating mga kababayan. Kaya sana’y maging maganda ang aming labanan tungo sa posisyon ng serbisyo-publiko.” Politiko B ng Partido B: “Salamat Politiko A ng Partido A sa napaka-mapag-kumbaba mong pahayag. Ako ma’y umaasa na makapasok sa linya ng pagtulong sa ating mga kababayan. Ngunit, kung hindi palarin ay naririto pa rin ako at tutulong kay Politiko A ng Partido A upang mapaganda ang bansang Pilipinas.”
Sana ganyan. SANA.

A television channel shows children, looking like ages 5-8, working for a living. The television program stated that the law in our country proves this is illegal. ..and detrimental. The television program host inquired, “How can this situation be possible when a law dictates this isn’t right?”. The television program stirred me to the more humongous problem: The lawmakers laying laws, tons, actually. Can the laws actually be uplifting? Uhm. I don’t think so.

When you insist at first it is hormonal when the truth is the individual changed. A whole lot.

Is humanity really making you curious? Or is humanity making itself full of questions? See? I am making it full of questions. So it really is making you curious because humanity is full of questions? Why is this making me curious anyway? What a nonsensical post.
*

Bawat ‘JUAN’ ng Pilipinas na nasa wastong gulang ay boboto na. ‘BAM’! Marami sanang bumoto ng tapat at pinag-isipan ngayong election. -para naman ‘POE’ ito sa ating kinabukasan. ‘ALAN’-alang sa ating bansang sinilangan. Wow, ang ‘CHIZ’y. Hehehe. Para mangyari ang success, ‘EDDIE’ bumoto tayo ng naaayon. Kapag natapos itong lahat, sana nasa ‘SONNY’ side of life na tayo. Haha! Ito’y para sa mga susu…nod na ‘KOKO’mpleto na susunod na henerasyon. Lahat ito ‘di lang para sa atin kundi para lo-‘REN’ na din sa ibang hindi pa boboto. Sana lang ‘BINAY’-hinay sila sa pambabatikos. Kumbaga, ‘JV’-GV lang. Walang ‘HONASAN’ o yabangan. Haha! Para..hanep ang buhay. Hindi lamang sa ating mga butihing misis at mister. –.– TEEHEE. ◕ ◡ ◕
*
When you are hurled through a number of frustrations.. of disappointments.. of sadness.., you actually question the existence of the question, ‘Why’. But behind these all, there’s the little space for the word that begins with ‘F’. Nope, not ‘that’. But this. –Faith. ◕ ◡ ◕
*
The world is blessed with innocence and pure unearthly happiness. And basically, these come from the little angels we meet every single day.
*
I admire those kinds of leaders of the nation who ought to bring the game on. NOT THE NAME, NOT THE FAME.
*
Buo na, buo na. May magagawa pa ba? Aba’y oo naman, pwede namang labanan. Ngunit hindi dapat mapanira, hindi dapat personal ang bira. Kailangang may substansiya. Kailangang para sa bansa. Hindi man pili ang mga taong mithi, sana’y tama ang aking hinihingi. Na minsa’y yun pang walang karanasan, ang siyang magiging daan sa magandang kinabukasan. | Prove the people wrong. That you actually can bring …change in this little Pearl of the Orient Seas. I know this isn’t your game. It is with you and of course, in my name. I won’t subjectively criticize. I won’t succumb to personal rants while I throw my trash to our beloved streets nor spit ‘crustified’ saliva to our beloved roads. I won’t hold grudges (yet not forget) for the misused phrases and statements *coughs* Hanep *coughs* buhay. But instead, hold the candle of hope everyone wants to have for this wonderful nation. I didn’t vote for most of you, but count me in in your projects that will really bring the nation to the top too.
*
After the markings on your nails disappear, there is this tiny little hope that your hope for the nation, still is here. You get to do again what you need to do, but always remember change begins with you.
*
Kung nakapag-shade, may right to complain. Kung hindi nakapag-shade, may duty to abide. Kapag nag-shade, hindi ibig sabihin hanggang doon na lang. Kapag hindi nag-shade, hindi ibig sabihin next time hindi pa din. Isang kanta ang sabi ni Philippines, don’t give up on me baby!
*
Kung milyun-milyon tayo, tiyak yan may ‘di ka trip na mananalo. Manalig ka lang na pasok yung shi-nade-an mo, at ‘di diyan nagtatapos ang pagbabago.
*
There are moments where you stare into space and random thoughts squeeze into your mind for a span of time. They may bring you back to the past, make you worry about the future, or snap you back to the present time. But you have to remember that you have to learn from the past and stop regretting, do not conclude over things not yet even happening and basically focus on the present to mold the future and mend the broken past. ;__;
*
Laws give this certain relief that everyone is bound not to break them. But it has been, will always be, a must to be wise and do not do just the right, not just the correct, but the wisest ways too.
*
With Him, you find peace and contentment. With the people around you, you let them find Him through being in peace with the people and being content.
*
Death is a path we travel. But we stop over happiness, friendship, love and other things. All of these make death a less scary deal. And even before we reach death, we can do things dynamically. Because we’re ever changing, continuously. Lacking such would be deadly than death itself.
*
The power of mind either brings you down or bring others down. It never ever ceases to make you doubt or make you doubt others. But if you’ve got something, or someone to believe on, like perhaps, Almighty Papa, chances are, you’ll survive the day, no matter how hard it is, no matter how sad you can get. And in the end, you’ll realize, “Oh, mind, try to be positive, next time! It works!”
*
When you actually are granted to have everything, in simplest ways, and still you find something is lacking, it’s in 3. You, You and I, or You and Him. Now, it’s me or be with Him, in glory.

In the Father’s arms, you may stay. | Destructions won’t make lives better. It makes the earth crumble. Insensitive destructions lead to crumbling. Objective destructions are deemed as part of the process, even learning. But it still is destruction. Are there any exceptions to the rule? /Sighs. Continuous fights and pointless (insisted to be of the process, even learning) discussions.. Not saying …they’re not important, but in the end, we fade, we’re voided, we disappear, in other words, die. Why sulk, be angered, destroy when this could be better; not the rainbows and unicorns everywhere type of ‘better’ but, peace, love, and.. and.. okay, ice cream. Life is full of blessings be it your alone, you are with other beings, or anything else. But be able to be inspired and inspire towards the earth that is so valuable and full for everyone with equality. | Vague point is vague.
*
One stroke of your paintbrush and you form a ray of color on your sheet. It’s similar to how you take a step forward or backward on your life depending what to hit. One dip on a cream of color and add on the other and you get another color on the sheet thinking about if you will smear. And it may be like how your life is today stranded on a place not moving at all just because of the fear. But at last you finish a wonderful artwork. So remember to enjoy life because stagnation ’causes shadows to pop and destroy from the point where they lurk. O___o what
*
The greatest recognition is the one that is not recognized. This is the symbol of humility and charity.
*
You cannot force a person to like a person but you can insist to a person that another person is respected.
*
Too much of the trying clings on to frustration and too much of the not-trying clings on to regret. It’s a double-edged one but thinking too much about these cling on to unhappiness. Live fully.
*
The great thing about life is.. uhm, life?
*
The great thing about light rains is not because it conceal tears, but because it’s an indication of blessings from above.
*
The floating melodies, those that are retrieved from laughter creates a wonderful ensemble of tunes valid with the fondest memories. Yet there isn’t a single cell knowing that these floating melodies pile up to create a block that is what we call a façade, one of the most daring options of life to move on.
*
Splashes of colors make blotches into life and crafts a beautiful imagery and that makes you happy. But sometimes you run out of acrylics and there’s no other way to canvass life anymore.
*
Being happy is of free will.
*
It seemed the floodgates of my vision organs opened as the darkness loomed over the bodies forming.
*
Every single thing you see is not what it seems. You have to not open just your eyes but also your mind and heart.
*
The greatest thing to have in life is life.
*
We think too much about what other people say and do against us and we do not even realize the only person who keeps us from being successful is.. us.
*
Strength comes in many forms. It may be the last push you give until the last hour of your work. It may be the final shade you have put in your exam. It may be the text you sent a while ago to someone dear to you. It may be the good stretch you have gotten for a competition. But to you, our strength comes invisible to the eye. It is felt, understood, and treasured miles and miles away.
*
Getting a wider perspective in things make this place a better place to live in. It insists you to understand another you. It removes the notion of disparity. It struggles to meet at the middle at all costs. But there’s this ‘you and I are different’ thing going on in this world that is why the arguments and fights just cramps up to different places like growing bacteria. When you get a wide perspective of things, you let go of the pain. The pain I say, but never the learning. You let go of the harsh realities. The harsh realities I say, but never the determination. Get on the groove and make yours and their place a better place to live in.
*
There are times wherein you question the stability of your decisions. You formulate sets of ‘What Ifs’ in your head and create hemispheres of another You, another Life. I get to presume that this may be because of one, you’ve got a life with goals met and dreams achieved or two, you’ve got a life of failed aims and required objectives. But geez, that one moment you heard yourself laughing, over something so puny or even not related to how your life eventually turned out to be, means something is still right, however you want it to be otherwise.
*
The mind speaks volumes. In a situation, an adversity is an adversity once you address it as an adversity. Affection is an affection once you accept is as affection. In other words, the moment you struck upon yourself the bad things thrown unto you, they will be bad things if you regard them as bad. So let’s change things, let’s make everything as opportunities to learn and to grow.
