Was on the way to town yesterday when I saw this incident…
A rather pretty young lady (ard sec sch age?) was standing diagonal from me, near the exit. She looked quite sweet and refined…
And then, she saw her friend near the front of the bus. Wanted to catch her friend’s attention, the resulting exchange resulted:
Young Lady (YL): Zhar Bor…. (Woman)
YL: ji guo lai lah (squeeze over)
YL: c*** b** (vuglarity)
YL: zhan na me yuan! (why stand so far?)
Bear in mind this wasn’t exactly a private conversation… she was shouting across to her friend half a bus length away…
In the less than 2 minutes it took her to say those lines, *poof* went the sweet young thing image 😦
Dhammapada (attributed to Buddha)
It would be better if, instead of a thousand words,
There was only one, a word that brought Peace.
It would be better if, instead of a thousand poems,
There was only one, a poem that revealed true Beauty.
It would be better if, instead of a thousand songs,
There was only one, a song that spread Happiness.
Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi (13th Century)
Outside, beyond what is right and wrong, there exists a vast field.
We will find each other there.
The Prophet Mohammed (7th Century)
Oh, Allah, I turn to you because you know everything, even what is hidden.
If what I am doing is good for me and for my religion, for my life now and hereafter, then let that task be easy and blessed.
If what I am doing is bad for me and for my religion, for my life now and hereafter, remove me from that task.
Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 7: 7-8)
Ask, and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks recieves,
and he who seeks finds,
and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Jewish Prayer for Peace
Come let us go up to the mountain of the Lord that we may walk in His paths. And we shall beat our swords into ploughshares and our spears into pruning hooks.
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.
And none shall be afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of Hosts has spoken.
Lao Tse, China (6th Century BC)
If there is to be peace in the world, the nations must live in peace.
If there is to be peace among nations, the cities must not rise up against each other.
If there is to be peace in the cities, neighbours must understand each other.
If there is to be peace among neighbours, there must be harmony in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home, we must each find our own heart.
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLD)
Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?
Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They’re conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that’s okay, because you’re very choosy with your affections anyway. You’d absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.
Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You’re already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there’s no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.
You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

True or False?
