business without morality;
science without humanity,

considers herself subordinate or inferior to a
man..woman is the companion of man, gifted with
equal mental capacity.

by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system
never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it

resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.

all sides, and my windows to be closed. Instead, I

blown off my feet by any.

Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills.
All I have done is to try experiments in both on
as vast a scale as I could.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of
the soul. It is daily admission of one’s
weakness. . . . It is better in prayer to have a
heart without words than words without a heart.

A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.

cinta tidak melihat dengan mata, tapi dengan akal pikiran. karena itulah ada cupid yang dilukiskan buta.

(William Shakespeare)

1) Guys may be flirting around all day, but before they go to sleep, they always think about the girl they truly care about….
2) Guys are more emotional than you think, if they loved you at one point, it’ll take them a lot longer then you think to let you go, and it hurts every second that they try.
3) Guys go crazy over a girl’s smile(:
4) A guy who likes you wants to be the only guy you talk to.
5) Giving a guy a hanging message like “You know what?..uh…nevermind..” would make him jump to a conclusion that is far from what you are thinking. And he’ll assume he did something wrong and he’ll obsess about it trying to figure it out.
6) If a guy tells you about his problems, he just needs someone to listen to him. You don’t need to give advice.
7) A usual act that proves that the guy likes you is when he teases you.
8) GUYS LOVE YOU MORE THEN YOU LOVE THEM!!!
9) Guys use words like hot or cute to describe girls. They rarely use beautiful or gorgeous. If a guy uses that, he loves you or likes you a whole heck of a lot.
10)If the guy does something stupid in front of the girl, he will think about it for the next couple days or until the next time he spends time with the girl.
11)If a guy looks unusually calm and laid back, he’s probably faking it and he is really thinking about something.
12) When a guy says he is going crazy about the girl, he really is. Guys rarely say that.
13)When a guy asks you to leave him alone, he’s just actually saying, “Please come and listen to me”.
14)If a guy starts to talk seriously, listen to him. It doesn’t happen that often, so when it does, you know something’s up.
15) When a guy looks at you for longer than a second, he’s definitely thinking something.
16) Guys really think that girls are strange and have unpredictable decisions and are MAD confusing but somehow are drawn even more to them.
17)A guy would give the world to be able to read a girl’s mind for a day.
18)No guy can handle all his problems on his own. He’s just too stubborn to admit it.
19)NOT ALL GUYS ARE RUDE!!!
Just because ONE is RUDE doesnt mean he represents ALL of them.
20)WHEN A GUY SACRIFICES HIS SLEEP AND HEALTH JUST TO TALK TO YOU, HE REALLY LIKES YOU AND WANTS TO BE WITH YOU AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
21)Even if you dump a guy months ago and he loved you he probably still does and if he had one wish it would be you to come back into his life.

……. Kepada Wanita Cantik ……

Seorang anak laki-laki kecil bertanya
kepada ibunya ‘Mengapa engkau menangis?’

‘Karena aku seorang wanita’, kata
sang ibu kepadanya.

‘Aku
tidak mengerti’, kata anak itu.

Ibunya hanya memeluknya dan berkata,
‘Dan kau tak akan pernah mengerti’

Kemudian anak laki-laki itu bertanya
kepada ayahnya, ‘Mengapa ibu suka menangis
tanpa
alasan?’

‘Semua
wanita menangis tanpa alasan’, hanya itu
yang dapat dikatakan oleh
ayahnya.

Anak laki-laki kecil itu pun lalu
tumbuh menjadi seorang laki-laki dewasa,
tetap ingin tahu mengapa wanita
menangis.

Akhirnya
ia menghubungi Tuhan, dan ia bertanya,
‘Tuhan, mengapa wanita begitu mudah
menangis?’

Tuhan berkata:

‘Ketika Aku
menciptakan seorang wanita, ia diharuskan
untuk menjadi seorang yang
istimewa. Aku membuat bahunya cukup kuat
untuk menopang dunia; namun,
harus cukup lembut untuk memberikan
kenyamanan ‘
‘Aku
memberikannya kekuatan dari dalam untuk
mampu melahirkan anak dan menerima
penolakan yang seringkali datang dari
anak-anaknya ‘
‘Aku
memberinya kekerasan untuk membuatnya tetap
tegar ketika orang-orang lain
menyerah, dan mengasuh keluarganya dengan
penderitaan dan kelelahan tanpa
mengeluh ‘
‘Aku
memberinya kepekaan untuk mencintai
anak-anaknya dalam setiap keadaan,
bahkan ketika anaknya bersikap sangat
menyakiti hatinya ‘
‘Aku
memberinya kekuatan untuk mendukung suaminya
dalam kegagalannya dan
melengkapi dengan tulang rusuk suaminya
untuk melindungi hatinya

‘Aku
memberinya kebijaksanaan untuk mengetahui
bahwa seorang suami yang baik
takkan pernah menyakiti isterinya, tetapi
kadang menguji kekuatannya dan
ketetapan hatinya untuk berada disisi
suaminya tanpa ragu

‘Dan
akhirnya, Aku memberinya air mata untuk
diteteskan.
Ini adalah
khusus miliknya untuk digunakan kapan pun ia
butuhkan.’

‘Kau tahu:

Kecantikan
seorang wanita bukanlah dari pakaian yang
dikenakannya, sosok yang ia
tampilkan, atau bagaimana ia menyisir
rambutnya.’
‘Kecantikan
seorang wanita harus dilihat dari matanya,
karena itulah pintu hatinya –
tempat dimana cinta itu ada.’

  126. Gregson is the smartest of the Scotland Yarders. He and Lestrade are the pick of a bad lot.(STUD)
  127. Supposing I unravel the whole matter, you may be sure that Gregson, Lestrade and Co. will pocket all the credit. That comes of being an unofficial personage. (STUD)

waktu sudah berlalu sangat lama semenjak dibuat karya erakhir dari novel ini. Tapi, tetap saja qta tidak bisa melupakan detektif terbesar sepanjang masa yang banyak menginspirasikan banyak orang, Sherlock Holmes. Pengarangnya adalah Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Cara penulisan buku semuanya memakai sudut orang ke-2 dalam menceritakan , yaitu dari sudut pandang dr.Watson yang merupakan teman seperjalanan Holmes, kecuali satu kasus saja yang ditulis oleh Holmes sendiri, The Adventure of Lion’s Mane.

Dalam buku ini, banyak yang unik. Ditulis pada akhir tahun 1881 sampai 1930-an, mencantumkan kata “Sumatra”, “VOC”. Ini dikarenakan Doyle tidak hanya menulis di kota London, tapi juga di Afrika Selatam yang pada saat itu masih dikuasai Belanda. Saya pikir pada saat itu, Sumatra dikenal dari Letusan Gunung Krakatau yang begitu luar biasa. Pernah dikatakan, abunya sampai ke Af-Sel (1883). nah, banyak banget kata2 menarik yang harus qta maknai bersama.. ayo coba renungkan..

Cinta tidak pernah meminta, ia sentiasa memberi, cinta membawa penderitaan, tetapi tidak pernah berdendam, tak pernah membalas dendam. Di mana ada cinta di situ ada kehidupan; manakala kebencian membawa kepada kemusnahan.~ Mahatma Ghandi

Tuhan memberi kita dua kaki untuk berjalan, dua tangan untuk memegang, dua telinga untuk mendengar dan dua mata untuk melihat. Tetapi mengapa Tuhan hanya menganugerahkan sekeping hati pada kita? Karena Tuhan telah memberikan sekeping lagi hati pada seseorang untuk kita mencarinya. Itulah namanya Cinta.

Ada 2 titis air mata mengalir di sebuah sungai. Satu titis air mata tu menyapa air mata yg satu lagi,” Saya air mata seorang gadis yang mencintai seorang lelaki tetapi telah kehilangannya. Siapa kamu pula?”. Jawab titis air mata kedua tu,” Saya air mata seorang lelaki yang menyesal membiarkan seorang gadis yang mencintai saya berlalu begitu sahaja.”

Cinta sejati adalah ketika dia mencintai orang lain, dan kamu masih mampu tersenyum, sambil berkata: aku turut bahagia untukmu.

Jika kita mencintai seseorang, kita akan sentiasa mendoakannya walaupun dia tidak berada disisi kita.

Jangan sesekali mengucapkan selamat tinggal jika kamu masih mau mencoba. Jangan sesekali menyerah jika kamu masih merasa sanggup. Jangan sesekali mengatakan kamu tidak mencintainya lagi jika kamu masih tidak dapat melupakannya.

Perasaan cinta itu dimulai dari mata, sedangkan rasa suka dimulai dari telinga. Jadi jika kamu mahu berhenti menyukai seseorang, cukup dengan menutup telinga. Tapi apabila kamu Coba menutup matamu dari orang yang kamu cintai, cinta itu berubah menjadi titisan air mata dan terus tinggal dihatimu dalam jarak waktu yang cukup lama.

Cinta datang kepada orang yang masih mempunyai harapan walaupun mereka telah dikecewakan. Kepada mereka yang masih percaya, walaupun mereka telah dikhianati. Kepada mereka yang masih ingin mencintai, walaupun mereka telah disakiti sebelumnya dan kepada mereka yang mempunyai keberanian dan keyakinan untuk membangunkan kembali kepercayaan.

Jangan simpan kata-kata cinta pada orang yang tersayang sehingga dia meninggal dunia , lantaran akhirnya kamu terpaksa catatkan kata-kata cinta itu pada pusaranya . Sebaliknya ucapkan kata-kata cinta yang tersimpan dibenakmu itu sekarang selagi ada hayatnya.

Mungkin Tuhan menginginkan kita bertemu dan bercinta dengan orang yang salah sebelum bertemu dengan orang yang tepat, kita harus mengerti bagaimana berterima kasih atas kurniaan itu.

Cinta bukan mengajar kita lemah, tetapi membangkitkan kekuatan. Cinta bukan mengajar kita menghinakan diri, tetapi menghembuskan kegagahan. Cinta bukan melemahkan semangat, tetapi membangkitkan semangat -Hamka

Cinta dapat mengubah pahit menjadi manis, debu beralih emas, keruh menjadi bening, sakit menjadi sembuh, penjara menjadi telaga, derita menjadi nikmat, dan kemarahan menjadi rahmat.

Sungguh menyakitkan mencintai seseorang yang tidak mencintaimu, tetapi lebih menyakitkan adalah mencintai seseorang dan kamu tidak pernah memiliki keberanian untuk menyatakan cintamu kepadanya.

Hal yang menyedihkan dalam hidup adalah ketika kamu bertemu seseorang yang sangat berarti bagimu. Hanya untuk menemukan bahawa pada akhirnya menjadi tidak bererti dan kamu harus membiarkannya pergi.

Kamu tahu bahwa kamu sangat merindukan seseorang, ketika kamu memikirkannya hatimu hancur berkeping.
Dan hanya dengan mendengar kata “Hai” darinya, dapat menyatukan kembali kepingan hati tersebut.

Tuhan ciptakan 100 bahagian kasih sayang. 99 disimpan disisinya dan hanya 1 bahagian diturunkan ke dunia. Dengan kasih sayang yang satu bahagian itulah, makhluk saling berkasih sayang sehingga kuda mengangkat kakinya kerana takut anaknya terpijak.

Kadangkala kamu tidak menghargai orang yang mencintai kamu sepenuh hati, sehinggalah kamu kehilangannya. Pada saat itu, tiada guna sesalan karena perginya tanpa berpatah lagi.

Jangan mencintai seseorang seperti bunga, kerana bunga mati kala musim berganti. Cintailah mereka seperti sungai, kerana sungai mengalir selamanya.

Cinta mampu melunakkan besi, menghancurkan batu, membangkitkan yang mati dan meniupkan kehidupan padanya serta membuat budak menjadi pemimpin. Inilah dasyatnya cinta !

Permulaan cinta adalah membiarkan orang yang kamu cintai menjadi dirinya sendiri, dan tidak merubahnya menjadi gambaran yang kamu inginkan. Jika tidak, kamu hanya mencintai pantulan diri sendiri yang kamu temukan di dalam dirinya.

Cinta itu adalah perasaan yang mesti ada pada tiap-tiap diri manusia, ia laksana setitis embun yang turun dari langit,bersih dan suci. Cuma tanahnya-lah yang berlain-lainan menerimanya. Jika ia jatuh ke tanah yang tandus,tumbuhlah oleh kerana embun itu kedurjanaan, kedustaan, penipu, langkah serong dan lain-lain perkara yang tercela. Tetapi jika ia jatuh kepada tanah yang subur,di sana akan tumbuh kesuciaan hati, keikhlasan, setia budi pekerti yang tinggi dan lain-lain perangai yang terpuji.~ Hamka

Kata-kata cinta yang lahir hanya sekadar di bibir dan bukannya di hati mampu melumatkan seluruh jiwa raga, manakala kata-kata cinta yang lahir dari hati yang ikhlas mampu untuk mengubati segala luka di hati orang yang mendengarnya.

Kamu tidak pernah tahu bila kamu akan jatuh cinta. namun apabila sampai saatnya itu, raihlah dengan kedua tanganmu,dan jangan biarkan dia pergi dengan sejuta rasa tanda tanya dihatinya

Cinta bukanlah kata murah dan lumrah dituturkan dari mulut ke mulut tetapi cinta adalah anugerah Tuhan yang indah dan suci jika manusia dapat menilai kesuciannya.

Bukan laut namanya jika airnya tidak berombak. Bukan cinta namanya jika perasaan tidak pernah terluka. Bukan kekasih namanya jika hatinya tidak pernah merindu dan cemburu.

Bercinta memang mudah. Untuk dicintai juga memang mudah. Tapi untuk dicintai oleh orang yang kita cintai itulah yang sukar diperoleh.

Satu-satunya cara agar kita memperolehi kasih sayang, ialah jangan menuntut agar kita dicintai, tetapi mulailah memberi kasih sayang kepada orang lain tanpa mengharapkan balasan. (Dale Carnagie)


Apabila cinta memanggilmu, ikutlah dengannya, meski jalan yang kalian tempuh terjal dan berliku. Dan pabila sayap-sayapnya merengkuhmu, pasrahlah dan menyerahlah, meskipun pedang yang tersembunyi di balik sayap itu akan melukaimu. Dan jika dia bicara kepadamu, percayalah, walau ucapannya membuyarkan mimpimu, bagai angin utara memporak-porandakan petamanan. Sebagaimana ia memahkotaimu, cinta juga akan menyalibmu. Sebagaimana ia menumbuhkan kuncup dedaunanmu, maka ia juga memotong akar-akarmu.

Sebagaimana ia membumbung, mengecup puncak-puncak ketinggianmu, membelai mesra ranting terlembut yang bergetar dalam cahaya matahari, demikian pula dia menghujam kedasar akarmu, mengguncang-guncangnya dari ikatanmu dengan tanah.

Bagaikan butiran-butiran gandum kalian diraihnya. Ditumbuknya sampai polos telanjang. Kalian akan dilindasnya agar terbebas dari kulit luarmu. Digosoknya, sehingga menjadi putih bersih, diremas-remasnya menjadi bahan yang mudah dibentuk. Dan akhirnya kalian akan dipanggangnya di atas api pensucian, laksana roti yang dipersembahkan pada pesta kudus Tuhan.

Demikianlah sifat cinta kepada diri manusia, supaya kalian pahami rahasia hati, dan kesadaran itu akan menjadikan kalian sebagai hati kehidupan.

Namun jika dalam kecemasan hanya ego dan kesenangan yang kalian cari dalam cinta, maka lebih baik kalian menutup tubuh dan menyingkir dari penempaan, memasuki dunia tanpa musim, dimana kalian dapat tergelak tanpa tawa, dan menangis tanpa air mata.

Cinta takkan memberikan apa-apa pada kalian, kecuali keseluruhan dirinya, dan ia pun tidak mengambil apa-apa dari kalian, kecuali dari dirinya sendiri. Cinta tidak memiliki atau dimiliki, karena cinta telah cukup untuk cinta.

Cinta tidak punya hasrat selain mewujudkan maknanya sendiri. Namun jika kalian mencintai disertai dengan berbagai hasrat, maka wujudkanlah dia demikian: meluluhkan diri, mengalir bagaikan anak sungai, yang menyanyikan lagu persembahan malam, mengenali kepedihan kemesraan yang terlalu dalam. Merasakan luka akibat pengertianmu sendiri tentang cinta: Dan meneteskan darah dengan rela dan sukacita. Bangun fajar subuh dengan hati seringan awan, mensyukuri hari baru penuh sinar kecintaan. Istirahat di terik siang merenungkan puncak-puncak getaran cinta, pulang dikala senja dengan syukur penuh di rongga dada – kemudian tidur dengan doa bagi yang tercinta dalam hati, dan sebuah nyanyian puji syukur tersungging senyum di bibir
