A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go
The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had
It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone but it takes a lifetime to forget someone
Don't go for looks, they can deceive, Don't go for wealth, even that fades away, Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright
Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do
A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, a loving word may heal and bless
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear
No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won‘t make you cry.
The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can‘t have them.
Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Don‘t waste your time on a man/woman, who isn‘t willing to waste their time on you.
Just because someone doesn‘t love you the way you want them to, doesn‘t mean they don‘t love you with all they have.
Don‘t try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.
Don‘t cry because it is over, smile because it happened.
Dear sir/madam,*His highest charting single to date, it was also used in a Hallmark commercial.
I refer to the "Why Not?" column of your journalist, Mr Wong Sai Wan in his article, "In the line of fire" which is reported here - http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/5/7/focus/6211913&sec=focus
In his article, he alleged that "everyone pointed the finger at the four policemen, concluding instantly that they were guilty". I have to disagree with such a sweeping statement. I can easily name a few people who did not come to such a conclusion.
Further, he accused the public of ignoring the following facts:-
1. that there was a lengthy car chase;
2. that the boy kept on driving despite the car being fired at;
3. that the two patrol cars had their sirens blaring and lights flashing, and yet the boy refused to stop.
I would like to respectfully disagree with Mr Wong on that account too. But in any event, these facts does not change what a lot of people want - to know what really took place and to know if the policemen acted in accordance with law when they open fire at the car. Those facts referred to by Mr Wong does not support an act of self-defence by the policemen.
Finally, while Mr Wong is 'saddened' that allegedly everyone concluded the policemen were guilty, he himself had concluded that the policemen were not! How can he make suce a conclusion when the conclusion of the investigation has not been made known yet?
Making conclusions on the matter now is not going to help - whether you think the policemen are guilty or otherwise. Let the legal proceedings take its natural course.
I was shocked when i read the article "Minor at fault in shooting incident, says expert" in your papers today - (http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/5/6/nation/6202592&sec=nation).
In the first place, according to the said article, the so-called expert is a "clinical psychologist" "who is the Head of the School of Natural Health and Sciences in Sunway University College". This is actually incorrect as there is no such School in Sunway University College. Your journalist must have been referring to the School of Health and Natural Sciences. The expert is also a "former journalist".
While he is probably learned and an expert in his field, is he an expert in the area of law and of police powers?
In my personal view, it does not appear to be so based on what he has said in the aforementioned news report. The learned Assoc Prof was reported to say that the "most important issue" is the fact that the unfortunate victim in this case was allegedly committing an offence. The learned Assoc Prof concluded that the victim was at fault in the shooting incident.
With all due respect, that is not the issue in this matter. The issue I would submit is whether the police discharged their firearms legally or not. Even if the policemen were faced with hardened criminals, there are laws and procedure on how a policeman uses his gun against them.
Furthermore, this is a matter which should be decided by a legal tribunal - hopefully a properly constituted Court of law. By coming to such a conclusion, the learned Assoc Prof appears to have already pre-judged the matter. Let the matter be decided in a proper Court.
