They Say

Posted in Feelings on September 17, 2010 by altins

They say that I should put some make up

I say, I am comfortable this way

They say that I should rebond my hair

I say, why even bother that after three months the chemical effect is gone, leaving the traces of dry hair

They say I should change the way I dress myself

I say, why do I have to be some kind of slave to the money-robber-fashion-magazine

They say that I should hang out more

I say, I love to read and watching movies on my own, having some quality time on my own, for my self, why should I join the gossip conversation and spend more money on useless things

They say that I am an ambitious person

I say, I have lots of dreams and wishes and hopes and imaginations. I want to create stories of my life, living my life as if it is a dream, loving every second of it and having fantasies carved on my tomb stone as inheritance for my children, so that they will make their own fantasy life

I am authentic, unique, I am just me, undefined by what you so called standard of beauty

“I want to express my age and be authentic. Why do so many people follow somebody else’s idea of what is attractive?” –Diane Keaton

“This body I know loves to lie stretched on its side, reading… This body I live inside loves to burst into a sprint to retrieve my wallet from the car. To tease the dog with a romp. To dance when no one is home…” — Meredith Hall

The Dashing Confucius

Posted in Quotes, Thoughts on September 8, 2010 by altins

One book, one music, one movie, one series….. can change a person.

Meeting a new person, debating a subject…. can change a person too.

In every way, everyone  can be changed………. for good.

Who would have ever thought that a mere series drama can excite me this much? Seeing some fellas….perhaps younger than me, have idealists thought of what life and government should be. Sigh……

Can you please put my name in the list of your next year enrolled students?

I want to argue, I want to challenge ideas and be challenged, be an open minded person, say what’s on my mind and my heart. And through it all, I know that I will never be the same person. That somehow, I will be


In the end, I remember I once read Confucius quote in one of my SG trips:


Chapter on Li Yun – Lichi

Dialogues of Confucius ( 551 – 479 B.C. )

When the Great Way prevailed, every person was a part of the public society, and public society belonged to everyone. The virtuous and the able were chosen for public office. Fidelity and friendliness were valued by all. People not only loved their own parents and children, but loved the parents and children of others as well. The elderly lived their last years in happiness; able-bodied adults were usefully employed; children were reared properly. Widowers, widows and orphans, the childless aged, the crippled and the ailing were well cared for. All men shared their social responsibilities, and all women have their respective roles. Natural resources were fully used for the benefit of all, and not appropriated for selfish ends. People wanted to contribute their strength and ability to society for for public good but not for private gain. Trickery and intrigue could not occur in such a society. Robbery, lurcher,  and other crimes all disappeared. Gates and doors were not locked; no one ever thought of stealing. This was the age of the Great Commonwealth of peace and prosperity.


Confucius said :

In Teaching, There Should be No Class Distinction.


Huah……never thought a series can excite me this high. Sigh.

I just remember that once, Xiao Yence quoted “People not only loved their own parents and children, but loved the parents and children of others as well.” and “Gates and doors were not locked; no one ever thought of stealing.” in Huan Zhu Ge Ge.
