Quotable Quotes

These quotes are taken from movies i watched during my 1-week berjoli


1. "Only dead fish go with the flow of the river"

2. "To love the sinner, but hate the sins"

3. "To assume the best in people, and not the worst"

4. "To believe that anyone, no matter how evil, can be redeemed... eventually"

p.s. It crossed my mind of what happened to the Late Kugan (may his soul RIP), who died in the police custody (no one deserved to die under watchful eye of our Police F(a)rce), of Allahyarhamah Mona Fendi (may her soul be amongst those forgiven by Allah, the most compassionate), of the panic manic bandwagon (i have to deal with, at least, for the next 16 months Ya Allah, please give me strength).

p.p.s. I've never come across anyone close to Lord Frank Longford in Malaysia, who saw politics less as a career and more as part of a moral crusade. Lord Longford died in 2001 at the age of 95.

"Dead Poets Society"

1. "We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for"

2. "Don't just jump off like lemmings! Take a look around!"

3. "Two roads diverged in the wood and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference"

4. "... carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary"

5. "This is a battle, a war, and the casualties could be your hearts and souls"

6. "I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way"

7. "Boys, you must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all. Thoreau said, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation." Don't be resigned to that. Break out!"

p.s. one of main reasons watching Dead Poets Society is to ooh and aah for Robert Lawrence Leonard, the main student character in that movie. He's currently acting as Dr. James Wilson in House. I found out he's born on 28/02/1969. Somehow, i can be subconsciously attracted to another Pisces, like him and Josh Groban and not forgetting Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
