Embrace the pain

Good times give us the impetus to carry on yet hardly teach us anything. It’s the bad times that teach us invaluable lessons that help our entire life. It’s in the bad times that we contemplate intensely and thus find profound insights.

Our soul doesn’t need a masquerade

I have been telling apart appearance and so-called ‘soul’. But today I suddenly realize how similar they are. Just as I can use cosmetics for my face, I can cover what looks ‘ugly’ to people in my mentality.

I prefer light make-up through which I can still recognize the flaws of my face, though less apparently. But what about the dark side of my character? Should I wear a ‘thick make-up’ on it to make myself more ‘adorable’ in people’s eyes?

Falling star

By Kiều Quốc Hưng on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 10:47am A star is falling From the far far sky Or is it your name Falling from my life ? Still in the darkness Glowing the star lights But inside my chest It’s an empty night… A star just died off The sky stays unchanged…

Naked soul – a quote by Oscar Wilde

“People are afraid of themselves, nowadays. They have forgotten the highest of all duties, the duty that one owes to oneself. Of course, they are charitable. They feed the hungry, clothe the beggar. But their own souls starve, and are naked. Courage has gone out of our race.” – Oscar Wilde.
