i remembered the words of Lady Eowyn when Aragorn asked her what does she fear.. and she answered..:
"A cage.. to stay behind bars until use and old age accept them..
And all chance of valor has gone beyond recall and desire.."
chance of valor.. chance of contribution..
and yes.. Gandalf's words to Frodo in the mines of Moria when he (Frodo) regret the ring had come to him
" so do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide...
all we have to decide is what to do with time that is given to us.."
time.. age.. what to do with it..
and theres the peribahasa arab..
"..in lam tuzid syai'an aladdunya, fakunta anta zaaidan aladdunya
(jika kamu tidak menambah sesuatu kepada dunia, maka kamu adalah lebihan dunia).."
i don't want to be 'lebihan'..
"innal insaana lafi khusr.. illa.. (sesungguhnya manusia itu sangat-sangat dalam kerugian.. kecuali).."
whoa.. in a state of kerugian..?? noo.....
so... what conclusion should be made here..? heheh
p/s: Nasi Kerabu was great!
