They had to make so many goats, ram, sheep for offerings in numbers... The Israelites must have been breeding them so much... They would have good food security

The Malay audience only drink water when the speaker in front does. What teaching is this? Respect? I remember in school we had to ask the teachers permission to drink water xD
Prof Jacqueline, she is soooooo good. Like Dr Colin

It was the Bishop's own fault. From his vantage point, calling the Speaker satanic put him at the farthest extreme from himself and all good Catholics: The Speaker is the opposite of us. But to those who were not theologically sophisticated, while Satan was frightening and powerful, so was God. They understood well enough the continuum of good and evil that the Bishop referred to, but they were far more interested in the continuum of strong and weak-- that was the one they lived with day by day. And on that continuum, they were weak, and God and Satan and the Bishop all were strong. The Bishop had elevated the Speaker to stand with him as a man of power. The people were thus prepared to believe the whispered hints of miracles.
Compassionate enough," she said, "to put the hot iron into the wound when that's the only way to heal it."
As one who had felt his burning iron cauterize her deepest wounds, she had the right to speak; and he believed her, and it eased his heart for the bloody work ahead.
"It's also like being born," said Ender. "As long as you keep getting born, it's all right to die sometimes."
And yet that was how human beings satisfied their sense of responsibility-- checking again even when they knew it was unnecessary.
Someone once told me that the only teacher who's worth anything to you is your enemy."
Then I judge that it's no sin to speak to the unbelievers in the language of their unbelief," said Qing-jao.
The gods had caused Wang-mu to say that it was unjust to punish Qing-jao for simply hearing another person's disrespectful opinions. Perhaps Wang-mu's statement was true. But it was also true that the gods could not be unjust. Therefore it must be that Qing-jao was not being punished for simply hearing the treasonous opinions of the people. No, Qing-jao had to purify herself because, in her heart of hearts, some part of her must believe those opinions. She must cleanse herself because deep inside she still doubted the heavenly mandate of Starways Congress; she still believed they were not just.
Servants are always happier when they know their voices are heard by their master.
Quim smiled to see how easily Andrew turned away the quarrel that Grego wanted to pick. Grego was no fool. He knew he was being handled. But Wiggin hadn't left him any reasonable grounds for showing his disgruntlement. It was one of the most infuriating skills of the Speaker for the Dead.
People only really believe in what they've seen before.
When you have wisdom that another person knows that he needs, you give it freely. But when the other person doesn't yet know that he needs your wisdom, you keep it to yourself. Food only looks good to a hungry man.

i've been without running shoes for quite some time now,
so i was in a delima.. should i buy a pair of badminton shoes (cause i play it so much nowadays in FRC) or should i get a general purpose all rounder running shoe? (with lower heels so as not to sprain like the mizouno.. that was a really bad sprain)..
after wearing the stiff badmninton shoes i decided to go for the super light weight runners =)
there was a discount too and also lucky draw entry, fingers crossed might get the RM2k voucher, nyahahaha
RM242 after the discount, not too cheap, but owh well
for RM35... this is probably worth it. haven't had the chance to use it yet, but i like its design and how light it is
Was just looking for a friend to send him to the hospital, but so many people are weary about him, my parents included. i think i just met a genuine guy whose been travelling around the world. wow.
it was nice to listen to his stories,
he could.. just walk around with the clothes on his back,
and emergency passport
and.... a plastic bag of trash. wow.
