I’ve not written very much at all this year, unfortunately. But I remembered that I had a Medium account, and that I should probably stop ranting on social media and channel it to a somewhat more structured method of information dissemination, so voilà! Here you go. Can’t promise I’ll keep this up, but let’s try anyhoo.
To start — I posted this picture of a lovely small variety of pink hibiscus from my mother’s garden earlier today. Somebody once told me about this quote, which I found out was from Gandhi:
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
I then remembered this other quote, a popular Malay proverb:
“Kerana nila setitik, rosak susu sebelanga.”
Which view do you subscribe to — lose faith in the whole because of a part, or believe that parts can be considered separate from the whole?
