Unforgettable Quotes of my 2014

My 2014 is a roller-coaster of emotions, from sleeping to awakening, from enlightenment to confusion, from breaking to forming pieces, from giving up to giving in. But this is probably the time I seek advice from others. I do not rely on my own judgment as I used to. I seek, listen, contemplate, read, and study to find answers. I take note when people share some words of wisdom and I brag that I have people in my life who have wise words. Here are memorable quotes from my 2014 experience.

“Don’t wear the shoes that don’t fit you” –  Lina Bernardo

My aunt shared these words of comfort after I gave up on what I thought was perfect. I used to buy shoes that did not fit me. Even if I knew they were too small or too big, I bought them because they were pretty. My officemate, Karen, and I have a word for that. We called it ‘beauty endurance’. I could wear 4 inch stiletto maybe for 30 minutes but I could not wear them all night. For sure, high heels will make me look good on the camera but behind the lens, they hurt.

“There is no fear in love”-  Telly Belo

In a phone conversation, my mom said, “There is no fear in love.” She got it from 1 John 4: 18. From this principle, I come up my own statement of love: “If love is governed by terms and agreement, rules and regulations, it is not ‘love’. It is called business transaction. There is no politics in love, only liberty.”

“What’s the purpose of our being if we are not open for changes?” – Ronn Angeles

I was having dinner with my friend, Ronn. I told him there was something I was contemplating on. He replied, “What’s new? You are always contemplating.” I asked one of the most stupid questions, “”Are you open for change?” And he gave me this answer.

“Knowledge is not permanent” – Dean Inday

These were some of the last words my teacher said  during the last day of our MA classes. We can never be sure of what we know. Hence, we should never stop learning. Always be open-minded.

“Everything we do with the wrong intention is sinful” – Brod. Ed Larrobis

I spend a lot of time talking with our preacher. Even if I can think on my own and have some sense of what it is right and proper, I rethink of the choices and actions I make. I’d just like to stress that good deeds with the wrong motives are invalid

“Players gonna play. Haters gonna hate. Heart-breakers gonna break. Fakers gonna fake. I’m just gonna shake”– Taylor Swift

I’ve been addictive to Taylor’s Swift 1989 album, primarily because I find her songs relevant in the phases of my life. What Taylor’s Swift‘s song is saying: You can’t please everyone. I wrote this last year: “ Prioritize your happiness.”

“Candles have their own logic”  – 16 Wishes

I was watching a teen movie with my nieces, 16 Wishes. In the movie, the girl had a wish list for her birthday. It turned out that her wishes came true but not in the way she wanted. Morale of the story: “Be careful what you wish for”

“No amount of human reason can make you numb.” – Jacklyn

I will not end my blog post without my facebook-status quote. Here’s what I realize from my experiences, from others’ experiences, from reading problems of society, from understanding social justice: “No amount of human reason can make you numb” The Script wrote in their popular song Breakeven: “No wise words can stop the bleeding.” Maroon 5 wrote in Beautiful Goodbye: “Clever words can’t help me now” No one is exempted from suffering. We can blame structures, government, organizations, people for how we feel. We can over analyze life’s little injustices in scientific, logical, or biblical way but that does not stop you from feeling what you are supposed to feel. You cannot intellectualize pain nor can’t you intellectualize simple joy.
