learn, educate

While we may complain that we're better off without our current education system, lack of it has been cited as the primary reason for poverty and social ills.
Maybe we ungrateful ones should trade places with those who are desperate for it, hmm?

Plus, these days, I find it harder and harder to differentiate between the educated (or perhaps ill-educated) and the uneducated, and more often than not, the latter could've been easily thought to be the former if one were to judge based on attitude and manner.

No, the second paragraph is not an argument against education. If we were to recognize that being a teacher does not imply that one has learned all that is necessary, but should still strive to gather knowledge, shouldn't it be obvious that a bad student cannot make a good teacher?

le petit foi

I hide my faith because of my weaknesses,
My weaknesses, they seem bigger than my faith,
Out of fear for my faith,
Fearing it be overwhelmed,
I hid it.
I hide my faith, where it is safe,
My faith is hidden where it is safe,
Because I am fearful for my small, little faith.

I crave for attentions.

And that is exactly why I go to lengths to avoid them.

I have a disease. I have the tendency to inhibit growth in people, simply because I'm a misanthrope.

Don't ask me out for casual hang outs. Even if you find me charming. Trust me, you'll like me more if you see me less.

Find me only when you have problems. Problems that people in your normal elite circle can't deal with.

So, when you don't need me, please. I'm not the kind of person that waits for people to call me to go out and stuff. I'm perfectly fine in my own hole, with my books, with my access to the www.

I am but an anti-social-crowd-phobic-extrovert. Social gathering pains me.

OK, not really. I actually like going to weddings and see your smiling faces. :)

Next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is to let people know you are doing the right thing. - John D. Rockefeller
Why? Because people are dumb. More often than not, things people don't see, don't exist; things they hear, do.

Oh, yes, we're not supposed to boast. But worse than boasting, is to purposely leaving people around you with the wrong impression. To allow them to wallow in that lie is a sure sign of irresponsibility.

Uh, by the way, if you can't do it without appearing desperate or proud or boastful, forget it. To continue in that untactful manner is to be irresponsible in a way that is worse than NOT saying anything at all.
