Tidak ada kekayaan yang sebanding dengan ilmu. Tidak ada kemiskinan yang sebanding dengan kebodohan.Ali bin Abhi Thalib (via palawija)
Lengan kanan Ibu adalah guling istirahat saya ketika kecil. Ibu bernyanyi tanpa sumbang untuk mengantar anak yang penakut ini tidur. Sukar, nyaris mustahil bila ada niatan mencari sentuh selembutnya, suara seindahnya dan air mata yang mampu memantik cemas. Beliau teristimewa.
Suara pelan ditiap obrolannya dengan Tuhan adalah lampu kuning bagi saya agar jangan mengecewakan. Wajar dan tentu sesekali suara keras jadi wajah peringatan bila ada kesalahan. Semua demi kebaikan dan jamin selamat buah hatinya yang tumbuh kini lebih besar. Beliau terutama.
Senyum bila mendapati di layar telepon genggam ada namanya diiring dering. Saya rindu. Berdebar bila dering itu tiba dikala sadar salah, dipikul anaknya yang kini sudah mau tak mau harus dewasa. Beliau tercinta.
Halo Ibu, terima kasih ya. Bukan sekedar saya tidak terlahir tanpa perjuanganmu sebelumnya. Tapi lebih kepada sabarnya hati dan tidak putusnya doa untuk anak kecilmu yang kini sudah jauh lebih berani.
Saya sayang sekali. Saya yakin Ibu pasti rasa. Semoga beliau berbahagia selamanya.
As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, ‘I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal.’In 2006, a young boy named Jeremy wrote To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee an endearing fan letter, asking for a signed photo. She didn’t send one, but offered this gem of advice in its lieu – a fine addition to our archive of timeless advice. (via explore-blog)

“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”
“That’s the thing about pain…it demands to be felt.”
“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”
“It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
so cute aytt x
I’ve been thinking to quit but I know for sure quitting just making it worse.
They say life is like riding a bicycle. In order to keep the balance you must keep moving. forward.
well, If it is, then I’m riding my bicycle right forward to a cliff. I’m kind of focusing on keeping the balance but I clearly don’t pay attention to where I’m going.
No need your pat on my shoulder I just need to get back on track. the right track, away from the cliff.
wish me luck? we both know it ain’t easy.
Having a crush on a smart humble guy is easy. It probably is the easiest thing to do. You don’t need to steal glances in a classroom just to watch his perfect hazel eyes, because you get the chance to even stare at him when he answers the lecture’s question which no one knows the answer is. You don’t even need to find excuses to talk to him. Just ask him question about things you barely know and he’ll explain it to you without him thinking you’re a weirdo for not knowing this thing. Listening to things he says is just a simple pleasure for you, because you get the chance to listen to his heavy voice. Looking him stare at his huge thick book just to know the answer of a problem is your happiness. He’s looking even more beautiful when he looked confused and messed up with his own curiosity.
Having a crush on a smart humble guy makes you want to be a better, smarter person. It positively forces you to understand his world, to make you read things beside magazines, tabloids even Thought Catalog. You want yourself to have a talk with him one day without being so manipulated and you wish you could share new things which will make him remember you. Because it’s you whose introduce him this new thing.
Having a crush on a smart humble guy makes you desperate, that you know you’ll never get his attention, because all women secretly have a crush on a smart humble guy. And in the end, you stuck on someone who is not so smart and love to brag about how happy his life is for being with you.
