How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways…

I’m a big fan of quotations. I collect quotations from books to movies to lyrics and everything else that catch my attention. Here’s some that I’d like to share…

  • No river can return to its source, yet all rivers must have a beginning – Native American Proverb
  • Born to blossom, bloom to perish – Gwen Stefani
  • Uno Mas? – Jackie Chan in Shanghai Noon (Thanks to Cat)
  • You will know the worth of water when the well has run dry – Ben Franklin
  • Of those who say nothing, few are silent – Anon
  • The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can never end – Benjamin Disraeli
  • Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connait point (The heart has its reasons, of which reason knows nothing) – Blaise Pascal
  • With great power comes great responsibility – Spiderman
  • Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal – Thomas Moore
  • Attraction is always mistaken for love – Runaway Bride
  • Fingers were made before forks, and hands before knives – Jonathan Swift
  • My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it – Abe Lincoln
  • Work is the refuge of people who have nothing better to do – Oscar Wilde
  • There are two cardinal sins from which other springs: impatience and laziness – Franz Kafka
  • An actor’s a guy who if you ain’t talking about him, ain’t listening – Marlon Brando
  • Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt – Abe Lincoln
  • It is as hard and severe a thing to be a true politician as to be truly moral – Francis Bacon
  • Faith is like love: it cannot be forced – Arthur Schopenhauer

And my favourite quote:

Superman: Listen, what do you hear?

Lois Lane: Nothing.

Superman: I hear everything. You wrote that the world doesn’t need a savior, but everyday I hear people crying for one.


Attention: Never wish someone ‘Semoga berbahagia hingga ke anak cucu’… Why? Sebab I kno one family that bercerai bila dapat cucu…. Bila tanya kenapa nak berpisah, the pakcik casually answered, “sebab dulu masa kawin, orang kata sampai ke anak cucu je….”… Ada betul nya jugak ek?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The venue…


The beginning…

In between the book…

After the final chapter ended…

I’ve discovered yet another super power that I have; supersonic reading… Finished the book in 2 days (some people might roll their eyes, but considering my tahap kesabaran is below zero, I’m very proud of achievement of NOT reading the ending first.). I kno Marina was done reading before I did and I’d like to thank her for not telling me the story. Overall; excellent! I dunno how JK Rowling could think of such complicated storyline. But that’s all I’m giving. I’m not gonna spoil the excitement for those Potterians who are currently or have yet started reading the book.

Someone told me once, “you can NEVER have a platonic relationship with a boy, let alone let them be one of your close friends”… Today, I would like to re-educate that someone, YOU CAN AND I HAVE PROOF!!!! See the picture up there… The one with the ‘red-shirt-wearing-tapir-but-look-like-human’ photo? He is my living proof…

I’ve known him since I’ve known most of TKC friends. He was this skinny specky boy who reminds me of Harry Potter (hahahahashahahahahahaahahahahh!). But now, he reminds me of Uncle Vernon instead… Sigh… Where did all the extra padding came from I wonder…. Anyways, today is a special day for him and I just like to let the whole world share it with my old friend.

EZNAN FAHIM, May you blessed with all the good things in the world and blessed with more friends like me in times to come… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

  • A lot of talking in the middle of the movie.
  • Fighting scenes at the end was good.
  • All of them grew up (even Dudley).
  • Don’t get me wrong, I still love the movie….

Me, begging Vernon to approve my leave was so worth it!!!!!

Special mention to Vernon and Seetha. One is to approve my leave and one is to swap shift with me….
