Bob- Ong Quotes

  1. Wag magmadali sa pag-aasawa. Tatlo, lima, sampung taon sa hinaharap, mag-iiba pa ang pamantayan mo at maiisip mong di pala tamang pumili ng kapareha dahil lang sa kaboses niya si Debbie Gibson o magaling mag-breakdance. Totoong mas importante ang kalooban ng tao higit anuman. Sa paglipas ng panahon, maging ang mga crush ng bayan sa eskwelahan e nagmumukha ring pandesal. Maniwala ka.

ka naman magmamahal ng iba kung mahal mo talaga yung una.

             mo lang. At Huwag na huwag ka hahawak kapag alam mong may

             hawak ka na.

tatawa, magagalit, magtatanong, o magbibilang kung ilang beses na ‘kong nagkamali at ilang ulit ako dapat bumawi.

 

  1. Mag-aral maigi. Kung titigil ka sa pag-aaral, manghihinayang ka

pagtanda mo dahil hindi mo naranasan ang kakaibang ligayang dulot ng mga araw na walang pasok o suspendido ang klase o absent ang teacher.

 

  1. Sa kolehiyo, maraming impluwensiya ang makikita. Masama o

mabuti man ito. Wag mo isisi sa thesis partner o sa kaibigan ang lahat kung bakit nasira ang baga mo sa kakayosi, nasira ang atay mo sa kakainom at kung bakit nagkaroon ka agad ng pamilya. Kung talagang matino kang tao, kahit sino pa mang tarantado ang kasama mo ay maitutuwid mo pa rin ang daang tatahakin mo.

 

  1. Dalawang dekada ka lang mag-aaral. Kung di mo pagtitiyagaan,

limang dekada ng kahirapan ang kapalit. Sobrang lugi. Kung alam lang yan ng mga kabataan, sa pananaw ko ay wala ng gugustuhing umiwas sa eskwela.

 

  1. Mangarap ka at abutin mo. Wag mong sisihin ang sira mong

pamilya, palpak mong syota, pilay mong tuta, o mga lumilipad na ipis. Kung may pagkukulang sa’yo mga magulang mo, pwde kang manisi at maging rebelde. Tumigil ka sa pag-aaral, mag-asawa ka, mag-drugs ka, magpakulay ka ng buhok sa kili-kili. Sa bandang huli, ikaw din ang biktima. Rebeldeng walang napatunayan at bait sa sarili.

 

  1. Wag mawawalan ng gana sa buhay. Kung ano yung galing mo,

kulit mo, lakas ng sigaw at tuwa mo sa mga laban ng UAAP, NCAA, mga sports fest o concert ng paborito mong banda, wag mong iwawala hanggang sa pagtanda. Wag kang tutulad sa ilang kongresista na nagre- report sa trabaho para lang matulog.

 

  1. Hikayatin mo lahat ng kakilala mo na magkaroon ng kahit isa man

lang paboritong libro sa buhay nila. Dahil wala nang mas kawawa pa sa mga taong literado pero hindi nagbabasa.

  1. Pag binisita ka ng idea, gana, o inspirasyon, kailangan mong itigil

lahat ng ginagawa mo para lang di masayang ang pagkakataon.

 

  1. Masama akong tao, tulad mo, sa parehong paraan na mabuti

kang tao, tulad ko.

  1. Paggawa na ba ng mabuti ang hindi paggawa ng kasamaan?

 

  1. Kung gusto mong kumpletuhin ang saya mo huwag mo na lang

  intindihin yung mga taong hindi ka maintindihan.

 

  1.     Minsan, kailangang ituro ng mundo sa’yo ang tama sa paraang

masasaktan ka para matandaan mo.

 

 

 

Adik si Bob-Ong talaga! I really don’t know kung saan siya balon hinukay…. ang lalim…. isang di-nakakalasing na kalasingan ang mga hugot lines siya. Proud to be a Filipino. Bob-Ong strikes a chord in the heart of both old and young readers.

 

Such an account of literature places its value in the reading perspectives of the writings of Bob-Ong. His books, matter-of-factly do not shelter young readers from the bitter taste realities of the imperfect world but addresses sensitive global issues to create responsible adults. It may help to confront disturbing realities such as problems on identity crisis and media and peer pressure which will inspire to form future citizens who are socially and ethically conscious members of the society. Highly-emotional in tone with touches of socio-political factor is the distinct quality of its ideas. Henceforth, it is accessible to young readers and represents certain ideas that are serious, deep and mature.

singlehood…..

Be Meaningfully Single Or Not

s1
A person’s happiness can be found from within. Happiness from within, more than anything, is much more important than the tangible materials and people we have at the moment. It is in our decision to be happy. Why do I say all of these? Of course, we cannot always be happy all the time but we can choose to be optimistic or cheerful. In reality, we are not always happy all the time, or sad all the time, or afraid all the time, or hurt all the time or angry all the time, because those emotions shall pass in its own time. It is in our attitude that we can choose to be truly happy no matter bad our situation is. It is in our frame of mind that we can feel happiness from within whatever circumstances we encounter.
Aside from the gentle whisper of thought from the mind, we can also find happiness through a melting music of emotion from the heart. It is a conception that when we are in love, we are happy or when we are happy we are in love. When someone out there romanticizing our whole system, we are into the orbit of the feeling of love… ‘IT IS LIKE A FEELING WE FEEL WHEN WE FEEL THAT WE ARE GOING TO GET A FEELING THAT WE NEVER FELT BEFORE…’

s2
My blokes, not all who are happy are basically in love and please don’t you ever say that there’s no meaning in life without a partner. Meaningless life with the trappings of nowhere end zone it should not be to believe that this only awaits for singles. We can be truly happy without our boyfriend or girlfriend. We don’t have to look too much for our knight in the shining armor to pick us up or search for our beautiful damsel in distress. Romantic love comes naturally and unpredictably.
We don’t have to pity ourselves because we are single. We don’t have to hurry up and panic to get away from the bachelor- spinster mentality. We don’t need our mate to make us feel attractive or acceptable because we are tremendously attractive and acceptable in our own special way. We are all we need…If we have partner, then it’s okay, if we are single, it’s okay too. Happiness and fulfillment are not found in the outside forces all alone. They come in the right time, perfect and God’s time. Just have faith to wait.
Let’s talk about the advantages of being single and couple as well.
If we are single…
• It is acceptable to see more than one partner at a time (so long as we know how to juggle the dating situation and we don’t hurt other people.)
• We can meet different people with less hassle. We don’t have to spend much time with our boyfriend or girlfriend.
• We are not caught choosing between hanging out with partner or our friends. Our time is not divided when it comes to hanging out, parties, gimmicks, etc.
• We can reach our goals more than possibly. We can make last minute plan without the blessing of our partner. There’s no need to inform him/her our decisions and plights.
• We can be selfish (not obsessively). Self -preservation is on the go. We can think only for ourselves instead of always thinking for two.
• We will not experience the lover’s quarrel. We will not wrinkle our brows trying to understand our partner. We will not complain about their bad characteristics.
• We can attain excellence in our study or profession because we can have full focus on them.
• We can serve others well by reaching out to them and touching their lives.
If we are with our lovey-dovey….
• It makes us happy thinking we are not alone. We are not cranky and grouchy because someone inspires our spirit.
• We are not green with envy with other couple because we have our own partner. Our partner gives us vigor and zest in life that we always smile thinking about him/her.
• Imagine life without someone to tell the 3 powerful words, I LOVE YOU. Our life won’t be dull and boring because we share our time with our partner.
• There is someone to help us when we need a helping hand and crying shoulder. The thought of those sweet things, makes us stronger and bolder in facing difficulties.

s3

TO BE A SINGLE OR NOT, IT’S UP TO US TO CHOOSE. ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT MEANING IS RELATIVE AND WE SHOULD NOT DEPEND OUR HAPPINESS TO OTHER PEOPLE. WE NEED TO TRAIN OURSELVES TO FIND HAPPINESS AND JOY ON OUR OWN. WE ARE ALL WE NEED TO BE MEANINGFUL AND WE NEED GOD TO BE MORE MEANINGFUL.
