You learn more from losing than from winning. For one thing you lose a great more often than you win.

“Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”

If you want something, you’ll do a thousand things to obtain it. But if you don’t want something, you’ll give a thousand excuses to refrain from it.

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

The less you respond to negative people, the more peaceful your life will become

Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die

I think a lot of people don't realize that martial arts are just an expression like anything else. It's just that most people are not trained to punch or kick, but you can walk or run or dance, which is also part of expression.

"No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power tyrants and dictators cannot stand. The Centauri learned that lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free."

Some sayings from where I grew up

Diam-diam ubi berisi, diam-diam besi berkarat
The Potato grows in silence, The iron corrodes in silence

Lembu punya susu, sapi dapat nama
Milk belongs to the cow, but the bull cow gets the publicity.

Melentur buluh biarlah daripada rebungnya
To bend a bamboo, start when it is a shoot

Terlepas dari mulut buaya, masuk ke mulut harimau
Escaped from a crocodile’s mouth, enter a tiger’s mouth

"Back when the Bible was written, then edited, then rewritten, then rewritten, then re-edited, then translated from dead languages, then re-translated, then edited, then rewritten, then given to kings for them to take their favorite parts, then rewritten, then re-rewritten, then translated again, then given to the pope for him to approve, then rewritten, then edited again, then re-re-re-re-rewritten again...all based on stories that were told orally 30 to 90 years AFTER they happened.. to people who didn't know how to write... so..." -David Cross

"Whatever you lose, you'll find it again. But what you throw away you'll never get back." Rurouni Kenshin

"Unlike in sports, the game of war has no set time limit and no points are awarded, so how do you determine the winners and the losers? When all your enemies are destroyed?" Andrew Waltfeld
