:: Dua Kata ::

Seorang reporter tengah mewawancarai seorang Presiden Direktur dari sebuah perusahaan yang sangat maju.

“Apa rahasia kesuksesan Anda, Pak?” tanya sang reporter

“Dua kata.” jawab sang Presiden Direktur tersebut

“Apa dua kata itu, Pak?”

“Keputusan tepat.”

“Dan bagaimana cara membuat keputusan yang tepat?”

“Satu kata.”

“Apakah itu, Pak?”

“Pengalaman.”

“Dan bagaimanakah cara memperoleh pengalaman tersebut?”

“Dua kata.”

“Apa dua kata itu?”

“Keputusan keliru.”

Cerita ini diambil dari cerita orang lain yang tersebar di internet maupun di buku-buku motivasi.

:: Obat sakit kepala ::

“Dok, saya sudah bosen nonton iklan obat di televisi. Masa baru sejam si Komeng minum obat sakit kepala merk Brudrek, sakit kepalanya kumat lagi. Dan anehnya kenapa dia minum obat itu terus menerus? Gak paham saya!”

“Gitu ya,” sahut si dokter dengan ramah. Lalu apa yang Anda inginkan?”

“Tolong bu dokter, berikan saya obat yang paling manjur untuk semua type sakit kepala,” pinta si pasien. “ Baiklah,” jawab dokter sambil mengeluarkan sebutir pil berwarna merah pekat.

“Bu dokter, setelah saya meminum obat ini, apakah saya akan langsung sembuh?”

“Saya hanya bisa mengatakan bahwa setiap pasien yang meminum obat ini, tidak ada yang datang lagi kemari, “ jawab dokter tenang.

:: Pelangi Pagi ::

Entah gelap, entah terang…
Embun menari di atas dedaunan,
Awan bercanda dengan sang Langit,
Tatkala sang Mendung menghadang,
Pagi menjerit, lalu menangis,
Angin merayu pagi, menghalau mendung,
Sang Mentari datang mendamaikan,
Semua tersenyum,
Pelangu pun datang mewarnai pagi.

:: Pocahontas – Colors Of The Wind Lyrics ::

I like this song very much, first time I heard this song when I was still in elementary school. Here’s the lyric :

Pocahontas Original Sound Track
Colors Of The Winds
Vanessa Williams

You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?
You don’t know …

You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind
