Quotable quotes from Bob Ong(a repost)

-->A repost? Yes, a repost. Since I am a big fan of Bob Ong, I think he deserve a parcel on my page. I like his books because aside from the humor, you will get to know the real issues in the society. It's about putting humor on reality. Bob Ong is the mastermind of the following books: ABBNKKBSNPLAKO
Bakit Baligtad magbasa ng libro ang mga pinoy?
Alamat ng Gubat
Stainless Longganisa
MacArthur





Here are some of the excerpt of his quotes from the books:

about PAG-IBIG

"Kung hindi mo mahal and isang tao, wag ka nang magpakita ng motibo para mahalin ka nya.."

"Lahat naman ng tao sumeseryoso pag tinamaan ng pagmamahal.. Yun nga lang, hindi lahat matibay para sa temptasyon."

"Gamitin ang puso para alagaan ang taong malapit sayo. Gamitin ang utak para alagaan ang sarili mo."

"Huwag mong bitawan ang bagay na hindi mo kayang makitang hawak ng iba."

"Huwag mong hawakan kung alam mong bibitawan mo lang."

"Huwag na huwag ka hahawak kapag alam mong may hawak ka na."

"Parang elevator lang yan eh, bakit mo pagsisiksikan ung sarili mo kung walang pwesto para sayo. Eh meron naman hagdan, ayaw mo lang pansinin."

"Kung maghihintay ka nang lalandi sayo, walang mangyayari sa buhay mo.. Dapat lumandi ka din."

"Pag may mahal ka at ayaw sayo, hayaan mo. Malay mo sa mga susunod na araw ayaw mo na din sa kanya, naunahan ka lang."

"Hiwalayan na kung di ka na masaya. Walang gamot sa tanga kundi pagkukusa."

"Pag hindi ka mahal ng mahal mo wag ka magreklamo. Kasi may mga tao rin na di mo mahal pero mahal ka.. Kaya quits lang."

"Bakit ba ayaw matulog ng mga bata sa tanghali? alam ba nilang pag natuto silang umibig e hindi na sila makakatulog kahit gusto nila?"

"Hindi lungkot o takot ang mahirap sa pag-iisa kundi ang pagtanggap na sa bilyon-bilyong tao sa mundo, wala man lang nakipaglaban upang makasama ka."

"Kung nagmahal ka ng taong di dapat at nasaktan ka, wag mong sisihin ang puso mo. Tumitibok lang yan para mag-supply ng dugo sa katawan mo. Ngayon, kung magaling ka sa anatomy at ang sisisihin mo naman ay ang hypothalamus mo na kumokontrol ng emotions mo, mali ka pa rin! Bakit? Utang na loob! Wag Mong isisi sa body organs mo ang mga sama ng loob mo sa buhay! Tandaan mo: magiging masaya ka lang kung matututo kang tanggapin na hindi ang puso, utak, atay o bituka mo ang may kasalanan sa lahat ng nangyari sayo, kundi IKAW mismo!"


about PAG-AARAL

"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. (Haaay, sarap!)."

"Nalaman kong marami palang libreng lecture sa mundo, ikaw ang gagawa ng syllabus. Maraming teacher sa labas ng eskuwelahan, desisyon mo kung kanino ka magpapaturo. Lahat tayo enrolled ngayon sa isang university, maraming subject na mahirap, pero dahil libre, ikaw ang talo kung nag-drop ka.

“Isa-isa tayong ga-graduate, iba't-ibang paraan. tanging diploma ay ang mga alaala ng kung ano mang tulong o pagmamahal ang iniwan natin sa mundong pinangarap nating baguhin minsan..."

"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."

"dalawang dekada ka lang mag-aaral. kung 'di mo pagtityagaan, limang dekada ng kahirapan ang kapalit. sobrang lugi. kung alam lang 'yan ng mga kabataan, sa pananaw ko ehh walang gugustuhing umiwas sa eskwela."


about BUHAY (IN GENERAL)

"nalaman kong hindi final exam ang passing rate ng buhay. hindi ito multiple choice, identification, true or false, enumeration or fill-in-the- blanks na sinasagutan kundi essay na isinusulat araw-araw. Huhusgahan ito hindi base sa kung tama o mali ang sagot, kundi base sa kung may kabuluhan ang mga Isinulat o wala. Allowed ang erasures."

"Kumain ka na ng siopao na may palamang pusa o maglakad sa bubog nang nakayapak, pero wag na wag kang susubok mag-drugs. Kung hindi mo kayang umiwas, humingi ka ng tulong sa mga magulang mo dahil alam nila kung saan ang mga murang supplier at hindi ka nila iisahan."

"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."

"Tuparin ang mga pangarap. Obligasyon mo yan sa sarili mo. Kung gusto mo mang kumain ng balde-baldeng lupa para malagay ka sa Guinness Book of World Records at maipagmalaki ng bansa natin, sige lang. Nosi balasi. wag mong pansinin ang sasabihin ng mga taong susubok humarang sa'yo. Kung hindi nagsumikap ang mga scientist noon, hindi pa rin tayo dapat nakatira sa jupiter ngayon. Pero hindi pa rin naman talaga tayo nakatira sa Jupiter dahil nga hindi nagsumikap ang mga scientist noon. Kita mo yung moral lesson?"

"Nalaman kong habang lumalaki ka, maraming beses kang madadapa. Bumangon ka man ulit o hindi, magpapatuloy ang buhay, iikot ang mundo, at mauubos ang oras."


HALO-HALO

"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."

"ayokong nasasanay sa mga bagay na pwede namang wala sa buhay ko."

"hinahanap mo nga ba ako o ang kawalan ko?"

"hindi dahil sa hindi mo naiintindihan ang isang bagay ay kasinungalingan na ito. at hindi lahat ng kaya mong intindihin ay katotohanan. "

"Sabi nila, sa kahit ano raw problema, isang tao lang ang makakatulong sa'yo - ang sarili mo. Tama sila. Isinuplong ako ng sarili ko. Kaya siguro namigay ng konsyensya ang Diyos, alam niyang hindi sa lahat ng oras e gumagana ang utak ng tao."

"Obligasyon kong maglayag, karapatan kong pumunta sa kung saan ko gusto, responsibilidad ko ang buhay ko."

"Masama akong tao, tulad mo, sa parehong paraan na mabuti kang tao, tulad ko."

"Mas mabuting mabigo sa paggawa ng isang bagay kesa magtagumpay sa paggawa ng wala."

"iba ang walang ginagawa sa gumagawa ng wala."

"iba ang informal gramar sa mali!!!"

"Para san ba ang cellphone na may camera? Kung kailangan sa buhay un, dapat matagal na kong patay."

"Pare, isa kang totoong tao at walang halong kasinungalingan. In English, FACT you, pare. Totoo ka. In English, FACT you!"

A SECRET to share

I want to tell you a secret.

Please don’t get me wrong with this. I am not a gossiper and gossip is not my cup of tea. This is a different secret. Not mine, not somebody, and most of all not yours. And what is this secret I’m telling about? Well, it’s a secret scrolled on this book: 

The Secret is a book written by Rhonda Byrne, a name not known to everyone(not even me) but I personally thanked her for making me know the secret. After reading the book, I just have a lot of realizations about life, of the reason why I failed, why I have a lot of problems, why life seems so hard for me, why I am poor, why I don’t have money, why I’m sad, why I have enemies, etc…etc…..

While reading the book, I just simply laughed because I found there that the reasons why we have all these negativities is because of US. Yes, you are accountable of your own failures and you simply cannot blame it to others. If you are having circumstances right now, it’s a consequence of what you did previously.

I learned that there is such a thing called UNIVERSE and it is like a Genie, and that if you wish something, he will generously give it to you. Now,how can we give our wishes to the UNIVERSE?- By simply thinking of it. What you are thinking is giving impression to the UNIVERSE that you are actually wishing for it. For example, you are complaining about something, you may notice that when you are complaining, you will get into situation that will give you more reasons to complain-because the UNIVERSE might interpreted it that you want to complain and so HE will give you more reasons to complain because he thought you want it, you wish for it. So, if you don’t have money, do not say “I am poor!” or “I don’t have money!” – because these are negative statements, and the more you think you are poor-then the poorer you may get.The bottomline is, we should be careful of what we are thinking, because we are not aware that there’s an element called UNIVERSE that is listening to what you are thinking hence giving an impression that you wished for it.

But what is exactly the secret?

The secret is actually the Law of Nature: “Likes attracts likes”. If you still can’t get it, I elaborate further. It simply boils down to this: If you think POSITIVE, then you will get POSITIVE, If you think NEGATIVE, then you will get NEGATIVE. The book taught me to become positive of my thoughts. As much as possible do not entertain negative thoughts because this will bring something negative to you….and if something bad happen-the more you will think of it-the more negative thinking and the more negative situations will be given to you by the Universe. Meaning, in every circumstances, think positive-think good- for you will only feel good if you are thinking good. You can’t feel good if you are thinking bad right? So, if you get into situations, no matter how simple or complicated it is, check yourself, ask yourself….” DO I FEEL GOOD?”- “AM I THINKING RIGHT?”- if the answer is no, then switch your thought to something better so that you may feel better- and if you think good, you feel good-then good things will happen for you. Sometimes we see ourselves getting in “stuck” into unlikely situations-it is because we keep on thinking of the problem and the more we think of it, the more we are giving energy to it-then this will be sent out to the Universe and the Universe in return will give you more and more problems because HE think you liked it because you keep on thinking on it.

I also learned the beauty of Visualization. It is as if thinking about the things you like. In layman’s term, we can say it’s as simple as Daydreaming..but you know what? It’s one of the secret to achieve your goal. By merely thinking that you got it, that you are into it. For example, you want to have a car, then think of yourself driving the car you want and feel as if you already have it. You just can’t simply say “I want to have that car someday”, because the word “someday” may take you forever.

Now, about the UNIVERSE that I am talking about. I would introduce you to him. Who HE is? UNIVERSE is just like an energy, you cannot see it, you cannot touch it, you cannot hear it…but it is existing. It is everywhere but you can’t see it. Can you think of a person who can be present anywhere but can’t see it?...Yes,it’s God..therefore we can equate this as ENERGY=UNIVERSE=GOD.

Amazing right?

Two thumbs up for this book.

Very Nice. I recommend you read it.

And special thanks to Odessa for lending me the book.
