Random Thoughts 1-10

On Love, On Life

1. Love is the only miracle man could understand each other.

2. To admonish a person is to help him grow.

3. One has to learn to say NO and fight for a conviction in life.

4. We don't consent on unfair things and be part of a deceit.

5. Life becomes unfair because of people who aren't morally upright.

6. We all have to remind each other; no man is perfect.

7. Often, to fight for the truth takes small chances when the powerful lurks in a company of evil men. We all have to pray a lot so that all of us would be guided by the Holy Spirit everyday.

8. Losing is not being weak. It is accepting something others cannot give away, in some situations; behold GOD will give justice soon.

9. Praying is a weapon Jesus left to us on earth and going heaven. Praying comes with love, forgiveness, humility, and strength.

10. Being a good man, makes one live to be a good example. He works with everyone but has his own dignity. He could stand alone and die for a cause. The Bib…

The National Artist Award is a Fiction Story?

I have met and interviewed Philippine's respectable National Artists like, Nick Joaquin, Levi Celerio, Ma'am Ivi..., Arturo Luz, among others. Ma'am Edith Tiempo and all the other awardees raised no questions coming from different sectors of the writing community, but now this 2009 is mourning for this award.

What would be good for her is to appoint or check better government officials for better governance and procedures where public service is concerned. The government has to give quick beneficial results to ease the life of the Filipinos.

Where is freedom of the press here?

Most of the time, people around the world mock us for low ideals - can't we reach higher for bette…

To Ceasar What is Due to Ceasar...

The president, Mrs. Arroyo should give the people what is due them - i could not mind so much with her affairs, but then each of us has territories... i hope she doesnt MESS with the national artists, the writers, and each one's profession/vocation. She could have given some advise and comments,

BUT PLEASE don't MESS, never MESS with something YOU ARE NOT.

As responsible professionals and good workers we need a set of body to help each other. Awards are not emergencies... they can always wait and recipients of such should work with time and devotion to his work where others benefit.

The National Artist Award is sacred to - us - writers. We have our own UNSELFISH standards. Our work is dedicated to the majority and the preservation of good art that has been toiled in the course of many many years. Reals writers and artists never earn enough ---- they GIVE MORE...NO ONE can ever stop fighting for the values they earn in their work/vocation.

Reals artists have delicadeza…
