"And it occurred to me that the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again."
John Green, The Fault In Our Stars
"Being in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go."
"If you spent your life concentrating on what everyone else thought of you, would you forget who you really were? What if the face you showed the world turned out to be a mask… with nothing beneath it?"

"The sun,—the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man—burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray."
"Tidak mudah menjadi bayang-bayang orang lain. Lebih baik, tunggu sampai hati sembuh dan memutuskan dalam keadaan jernih. Tanpa bayang-bayang siapapun."

"We should really be grateful that Allah SWT has blessed us with ability to work for the hereafter. Imagine if we only worked for this life - and we failed, what a sad life we would have had. Alhamdulillah for the light we have been blessed with that lights up this life and the next, inshaAllah."
