Last Week Quotes

Last week, I’ve read a few books, some blog posts, several quora answers, and social media opinions. I don’t read that much, but here are some quotes that worth to share.

***

Sesempurna apa pun kopi yang kamu buat, kopi tetap kopi, punya sisi pahit yang tak mungkin kamu sembunyikan.

Dee, Filosofi Kopi.

Seindah apa pun huruf terukir, dapatkah ia bermakna apabila tak ada jeda? Dapatkah ia dimengerti jika tak ada spasi? Bukankah kita baru bisa bergerak jika ada jarak? Dan saling menyayang bila ada ruang?

Dee, Filosofi Kopi.

***

Ada seseorang dalam hidupmu yang ketika ia pergi, maka ia juga membawa sepotong hatimu.

Tere Liye, Sepotong Hati yang Baru.

Yang Ayah yakini, cinta yang besar, tanpa disertai komitmen dan kepercayaan, maka ia hanya akan menelan diri sendiri.

Kisah Rama dan Shinta yang diceritakan oleh Tere Liye, Sepotong Hati yang Baru.

***

Setiap orang dicipta tuk lakukan kerja tertentu. Dan hasrat untuk lakukan kerja itu telah dimasukkan ke dalam hati setiap orang.

Haidar Bagir, Mereguk Cinta Rumi.

Aku ingin menyanyi seperti burung menyanyi. Tak peduli siapa yang mendengar.

Haidar Bagir, Mereguk Cinta Rumi.

D) Three types of mentors

– Direct. Someone who is in front of you who will show you how they did it. What is “it”? Wait.

By the way, mentors aren’t like that old Chinese guy in “The Karate Kid”. Ultimately most mentors will hate you.

– Indirect. Books. Movies. You can outsource 90% of mentorship to books and other materials. 200-500 books equals one good mentor. People ask me, “what is a good book to read” and I never know the answer. There’s 200-500 good books to read.

I would throw in inspirational books. Whatever are your beliefs, underline them through reading every day.

– Everything is a mentor. If you are a zero, and have passion for reinvention, then everything you look at will be a metaphor for what you want to do. The tree you see, with roots you don’t, with underground water that feeds it, is a metaphor for computer programming if you connect the dots.

And everything you look at, you will connect the dots.
