You either have a God who sends child rapists to rape children or you have a God who simply watches it and says, “When you’re done, I’m going to punish you.”
If I could stop a person from raping a child, I would. That’s the difference between me and your God.
Kemarin aku kembali bertemu wajah kehidupan.
Sesekali ia coba tersenyum, namun pahit.
Kupikir ia ingin bicara maka kuberikan telingaku.
Tak sepatah katapun diucapkannya.
Sambil mencoba membagi senyum kesana kemari, kulihat ia menunduk.
Ketika wajahnya muram, ia masih harus menerima beratus kata.
Dan aku bertanya, “Mengapa memaksanya mendengar ketika ia harusnya didengar?”
Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.
Unknown probably Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr
When you are dead, you don’t know that you’re dead. All of the pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.
Perfect people don’t drink, don’t fight, don’t lie, don’t make mistakes and don’t exist.
Paulo Coelho de Souza
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you’re stupid and make bad decisions.
Marion G. Harmon
Fake friends are like shadows:
Always near you at your brightest moments,
but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour.
True friends are like stars:
You don’t always see them but they are always there.
Fake friends are like shadows. They follow you in the sun but leave you in the dark.
The first gulp from the glass of natural science will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.
Werner Karl Heisenberg
Lincoln Six-Echo: What’s “God”?
McCord: Well, you know, when you want something really bad and you close your eyes and you wish for it? God’s the guy that ignores you.
from The Island
Sometimes we create our own heartbreaks through expectation.
