Kata-Kata Bernas Obama, Presiden Amerika Syarikat di KL

Semangat ‘Malaysia Boleh’ Beri Inspirasi Kepada Yang Lain – Obama
Dalam sesi perjumpaan terbuka dengan kira-kira 400 pemimpin muda Asia Tenggara di Universiti Malaya, 27-4-2014, Presiden Amerika Syarikat Barack Obama berkata negara-negara di Asia Tenggara, begitu juga Amerika perlu menghayati semangat di sebalik slogan ‘Malaysia Boleh’, demi memupuk hubungan lebih rapat untuk masa depan lebih cerah.

Intipati mesej Obama kepada generasi muda:
1. Para presiden dan perdana menteri hanya boleh membantu meletakkan asas, tetapi generasi muda yang akan membina masa depan.
2. Hubungan antara negara bukan saja ditentukan oleh kerajaan tetapi juga rakyat, dan golongan muda mempunyai peranan dalam menentukan masa depan mereka sendiri.
3. Perkara yang menjadikan rantau ini menarik ialah kepelbagaiannya, dengan penduduk datang dari kumpulan etnik, budaya, dan latar belakang yang berlainan, demikian juga anutan agama dan kepercayaan politik mereka.
4. Malaysia menjadi lebih kuat dan lebih berjaya bila kita berusaha menegakkan hak asasi sivil, politik dan kemanusiaan.
5. Dalam isu kepelbagaian rakyat, tidak ada negara akan berjaya jika sebahagian daripada pendudukanya dipinggirkan. Layani orang sebagaimana anda mahu dilayan. Dan jika anda tidak lakukan itu dan masyarakat tidak menghormati prinsip asas itu, bererti kita mundur ke belakang dan bukan maju ke hadapan. Jadi, menerimalah, hormatilah dan menghargailah kepelbagaian ini yang sememangnya dicipta oleh Tuhan/Allah
6. Perkara paling penting untuk golongan muda ialah menyedari bahawa mereka boleh memberi impak terhadap dunia, dan untuk berbuat demikian, mereka tidak perlu fokus terlalu banyak kepada gelaran atau berapa banyak wang mereka akan perolehi. Fokus/matlamat hidup kita sepatutnya bertumpu kepada mendatangkan impak positif kepada komuniti, negara dan dunia.
Sesi itu melibatkan 103 peserta di bawah program anjuran Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) di samping kira-kira 300 tetamu undangan.

Relax dengan hayati keindahan alam

Mesti ada semangat macam kuda

Manusia tiru fesyen burung

Slow Dance

Slow Dance

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

It was sent by a medical doctor – Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE
Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask How are you?
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,”Hi”
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

PLEASE pass this on to everyone you know even to those you don’t know!
It is the request of a special girl who will soon leave this world due to cancer.
This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish,
She wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own

要求不高 所以可以幸福

有個老魔鬼看到人間的生活過得太幸福了,他 說:「我們要去擾亂一下,
要不然魔鬼就不存在了。
他先派了一個小魔鬼去擾亂一個農夫。因為他看到那農夫 每天辛勤地工作,
可是所得卻少得可憐,但他還是那 麼快樂,非常知足。 小魔鬼就開始想,
要怎樣才能把農夫變壞呢?他就把農夫的田地變得很硬, 讓農夫知難而退。
那農夫敲半天,做得好辛苦,但他只是休息一下,還是繼續敲,沒有一點抱怨。
小魔鬼看到計策失敗,只好摸摸鼻子回去了。
老魔鬼又派了第二個去。 第二個小魔鬼想,既然讓他更加辛苦也沒有用,那就拿走他所擁有的東西吧! 那小魔鬼就把他午餐的麵包跟水 偷走,他想,農夫做得那麼辛苦,又累又餓, 卻連麵包跟水都不見了,這下子他一定會暴跳如雷!
農夫又 渴又餓地到樹下休息,想不到麵包跟水都不見了!
「不曉得是 哪個可憐的人比我更需要那塊麵包跟水?
如果這些東西就能讓他得 溫飽的話,那就好了。」
又失敗了,小魔鬼又棄甲而逃。
老魔鬼覺得奇怪,難道沒有任何辦法能使這農夫變壞?就在這時
第三個小魔鬼出來了。 他對老魔鬼講:「我有辦法,一定能把他變壞。」
小魔鬼先去跟農夫做朋友,農夫很高興地和他作了朋友。因為魔鬼
有預知的能力,他就告訴農夫,明年會有乾旱,教農夫把稻種在濕地上,
農夫便照做。結果第二年別人沒有收成,只有農夫的收成滿坑滿谷,
他就因此而富裕起來了。
小魔鬼又 每年都對農夫說當年適合種什 麼,三年下來,
這農夫就變得非常富有。
他又教農夫把米拿去釀酒販賣,賺取更多的錢。慢慢地,農夫開始不工作了
,靠著經濟販賣的方式,就能獲得大量金錢。
有一天,老魔鬼來了,小魔鬼就告訴老魔鬼 說:「 您看!我現在
要展現我的成果。這農夫現在已經有豬的血液了。」只見農夫辦了個
晚宴,所有富有的人都來參加;喝最好的酒,吃最精美的餐點,還有好
多的僕人侍候。他們非常浪費地吃喝,衣裳零亂,醉得不省人事,
開始變得像豬一樣癡肥愚蠢。
「您還會看到他身上有著狼的血液。」小魔鬼又 說。這時,
一個僕人端著葡萄酒出來,不小心跌了一 跤。
農夫就開始罵他:「你做事這麼不小心!」「唉!主人,我們到現在
都沒有吃飯,餓得渾身無力。」
「事情沒有做完,你們怎麼可以吃飯!」
老魔鬼見了,高興地對小魔鬼 說:「唉! 你太了不起!
你是怎麼辦到的?」
小魔鬼 說:「我只不過是讓他擁有比他需要的更多而已,
這樣就可以引發他人性中的貪婪。」

NAIL IN THE FENCE

 

 NAIL IN THE FENCE 

Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence.

 (Most importantly the last sentence)

 There once was a little boy who had a bad temper .

 His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper , he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

 The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.

 Over the next next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.

He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

 Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.

 He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

 The days passed and the young boy was finally  able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

 The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

  He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.

 The fence will never be the same.  When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.

 You can put a knife in a man and draw it out.

 It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry , the wound is still there.

  A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

 Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.  They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.”

  Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to the person who sent it to you. If it comes back to you, then you’ll know you have a circle of friends.

 YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM HONOURED!

 Now send this to every friend you have!! And to your family .

 Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole in your fence.

Doing things like double-crossing your friends behind their backs when they are not watching is like driving a 6-inch nail right into their hearts, expecially when those friends have gone out of their ways to help provide for you in one way or another, or when they have placed so much trust in you…..

 God knows what each person does even behind closed doors so let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No’ even when nobody is watching…..  The truth always comes out.  It is a matter of time only.

 ‘Integrity’ is only but a word, few people know what it means or practice it.  There are many talkers but very few doers when it comes to integrity.

 Certain things done, cannot be undone.

  Nothing bad will happen to anyone who chooses NOT to send this on. It’s simply a choice. Choose not to, choose to. Enjoy your life, good luck!

A Good Article about “LIFE” to be shared.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

 

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

 

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

 

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

 

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

 

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

 

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

 

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

 

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

 

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

一根火柴,无限哲理

一根火柴,无限哲理

 

台塑集团创办人王永庆上周往生(2009),享年91岁,留下传奇一生。

            这名仅有小学学历的商场巨人,年少当过学徒和杂工,最终却摇身变成赫赫企业帝国的总舵,自有其非凡之处。

            他建立起多元化的跨国企业,涉足石化,生化,发电,医疗,电子,汽车晶圆等,被誉为“经营之神”,“台湾精神”,绝对实至名归。

            王永庆雄心万丈,意志坚定,毅力惊人,其过人魄力胆识和深谋远虑,往往令他成功出击,抢得先机,成为被“神化”的企业钜子。他的一些决策,有时觉得离经叛道,最后却为集团带来巨额盈利,令人折服于其高瞻远瞩,远见灼识。

            例如,今年越南股市暴泻,通胀率高达25%,外资纷纷撤离,但他却逆道而行,大手笔投下81亿美元新建东南亚最大钢铁厂,水电及港口设施,令越南政府欣喜若狂。

            虽然坐拥庞大企业王国,王永庆却能起居简朴,生活规律,诚信仁义,从其创办的长庚医学院,“朴素勤劳”之校训中,略可反映其勤奋朴实性格。他为性情中人,在中国贫穷地区赚钱后,心里不安,决定在31个省份盖起一万所学校作为回馈;他热心推动教育,养老,医疗等公益事业,对社会贡献良多。

            王永庆一早便坚持两岸紧密结合,他说,大陆和台湾是同种同文,大陆是我们的,台湾也是他们的,这席话,足以狠掴数典忘祖,无理取闹的台独分子。

            他虽辛苦一生,惟笃信“活到老,做到老”的养生哲理,认为只 有不断劳作才能保持健康,鼓励乐龄人士勇于奋斗,活出自己。

            王永庆生前留下无数至理名言,其中“一根火柴”言简意赅,充满人生哲理,抄录如下:

            “一根火柴价值不到一毛钱,一栋房子价值数百万元,但是,一根火柴 却 可摧毁一栋房子。

            可见微不足道的潜在破坏力,一旦发作起来,其攻坚灭顶的力量,无人能御。叠一百万张骨牌需费时一个月,但倒骨牌只需十几秒钟;要累计成功的实业,需耗时数十载,但要倒闭,却只需要一个错误决策。

            要修养被尊敬的人格,须经长时间的被信任,但要人格破产,却只需做错一件事。

            一根火柴,是什么东西呢?它是下列四项:

            1。无法自我控制的情绪;2。不经理智判断的决策;3。顽固不冥的个性;4。狭隘无情的心胸。

            检查看看,我们随生带了几根火柴?”

             不 论 身 在 任 何 领 域, 做 任 何  事, 王 永 庆 的 金 科 玉 律, 确 实 值 得 我 们 认 真 汲 取 学 习。

I AM GLAD I AM A TEACHER

I AM GLAD I AM A TEACHER

I would rather be a teacher than a statesman, For he deals with finished citizens, I deal with future citizens.     I would rather be a teacher than a potter, For he shapes vessels of clay,But I shape destinies. 

I would rather be a teacher than a great business executive, For he works with facts and figures and lifeless coins, But I work with minds that are open,With future that unfolds and principles that grow. 

 

I would rather be a teacher than an archaeologist, For he unearths buried treasure, But I unearth talent. 

 

 I would rather be a teacher than an explorer, For he explores uncharted seas, But I explore uncharted minds and discover treasure island and continents of untold possibilities.

 I would rather be a teacher than a scientist, For though he studies the wonders of rocks, and the beauty of the stars, and the miracles of planets and the glory of the skies, I deal with that which is still more miraculous in the throbbing human hearts, unfolding human life and the information of lifetime character.
