Quote
"When we make use of criticism it is not something arbitrary and impersonal,—it is, at least very often, a proof that there are lively, active forces in us, which cast a skin. We deny, and must deny, because something in us wants to live and affirm itself, something which we perhaps do not as yet know, do not as yet see!—So much in favour of criticism."

— Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science (via das-grablied)

"

Wij zijn de bouwers van de tempel niet
Wij zijn enkel de sjouwers van de stenen
Wij zijn het geslacht dat moest vergaan
Opdat een betere oprijze uit onze graven

Kami bukan pembangun candi
Kami hanya pengangkut batu
Kamilah angkatan yang mesti musnah
Agar menjelma angkatan baru diatas pusara kami lebih sempurna

(Henriette Roland Holst, 1869-1952; terjemahan oleh Rosihan Anwar)

(via rezaadipraya)

suddenly reminded of a stanza in one of Rivai Apin’s poems. but it’s probably not that surprising that he and his friends would have been influenced greatly by Dutch poetry.

"Dia memberikan hikmah kepada siapa saja yang Dia kehendaki. Barangsiapa diberi hikmah, sesungguhnya dia telah diberik kebaikan yang banyak. Dan tidak ada orang yang dapat mengambil pelajaran kecuali orang-orang yang mempunyai akal sehat"

This is Quran translation in Latin language. It was surprising me because of the chosen language, LATIN! Well, I know so far that Latin is dead language which means has no native speakers anymore. Official status for this language is only in Holy See, Vatican. Great work! I found this in Google Books. This is only a sample, the whole Quran text is in .pdf format.

once upon a time it was okay to read other people’s Holy Books to study them comparatively for fun without being labelled as “faith under suspicion” (or to quote A., ‘aqidah in suspect’)also, Latin didn’t immediately die. it was still considered a learned academic language into the late 18th century (correct me if i remember wrongly here?)the typeface of the text can also give a clue as to when this is dated.but overall, this is actually pretty fascinating.

Gurindam 12 Fasal 5

by Raja Ali Haji (1808-1873)

[two_first]

This is the gurindam of the fifth issue:

If you wish to know the people of high birth,
in manners and speech are shown their worth.

To know the people of happiness,
avoid involvement in the meaningless.

To know the man of high distinction,
look upon his deeds and actions.

If you wish to know the people of wisdom
ask and learn without feeling boredom.

If those with intellect you would know
store provisions now in this life below.

If men of character you would recognize
among the masses observe how they fraternize.

(Original in Malay)
Ini gurindam pasal yang kelima:

Jika hendak mengenal orang berbangsa,
lihat kepada budi dan bahasa.

Jika hendak mengenal orang yang berbahagia,
sangat memeliharakan yang sia-sia.

Jika hendak mengenal orang mulia,
lihatlah kepada kelakuan dia.

Jika hendak mengenal orang yang berilmu,
bertanya dan belajar tiadalah jemu.

Jika hendak mengenal orang yang berakal,
di dalam dunia mengambil bekal.

Jika hendak mengenal orang yang baik perangai,
lihat pada ketika bercampur dengan orang ramai.

i used to be one of those people who really relished in the english language and all its fuckery but in recent years ive come to feel that being raised and educated in it exclusively has left me an incomplete person

Telling/sharing with every other person about my intended thesis topic, except the one person i really want to let know. Also supposedly the first person i want to let know, and at times the only person i want to let know of my long-term research plans.

Guess it goes to show how much i let said person matter to me, when he probably doesn’t really care.

maybe going around telling people “look, i am going to try my hand at doing this it’s going to be a shitty process but do you want to join me and master this shit” is probably going to force myself to make my idea materialize
