Memberi Bukan Meminta


Bila tak seorang pun berbelas kasih pada kesulitan anda. Atau, tak ada yang mau merayakan keberhasilan anda. Atau tak seorang pun bersedia mendengarkan, memandang, memperhatikan apa pun pada diri anda. Jangan masukkan ke dalam hati. Manusia selalu disibukkan oleh urusannya sendiri. Manusia kebanyakan mendahulukan kepentingannya sendiri. Anda tak perlu memasukkan itu ke dalam hati. Karena hanya akan menyesakkan dan membebani langkah anda. Ringankan hidup anda dengan memberi pada orang lain. Semakin banyak anda memberi semakin mudah anda memikul hidup ini.

Berdirilah di depan jendela. Pandanglah keluar. Tanyakan pada diri sendiri, apa yang bisa anda berikan pada dunia ini. Pasti ada alasan kuat mengapa anda hadir di sini. Bukan untuk merengek atau meminta dunia menyanjung anda. Keberadaan anda bukan untuk kesia-siaan. Bahkan seekor cacing pun dihidupkan untuk menggemburkan tanah. Dan, sebongkah batu dipadatkan untuk menahan gunung. Alangkah hebatnya anda dengan segala kekuatan yang tak dimiliki siapapun untuk mengubah dunia. Itu hanya terwujud bila anda mau memberikannya.

Have nice day guys ……

Transformers: Age of Extinction


Transformers: Age of Extinction is a 2014 science fiction action film based on the Transformers franchise. It is the fourth installment of the live-action Transformers film series and stars Mark Wahlberg in the lead role. A sequel to Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the film takes place five years later, after the Decepticon invasion of Chicago. Like its predecessors, the film is directed by Michael Bay[6] and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Ehren Kruger is the film’s screenwriter, having written every Transformers film since Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The film features an entirely new cast of human characters and is the first in the series to feature the Dinobots. Returning Transformers include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Leadfoot, Brains and Megatron (now known as Galvatron). The film was released on June 27, 2014, in IMAX and 3D.[7]

Reception to the film was generally positive among casual film-goers, who gave it a 6.1/10[8], but negative among film critics, who expressed an overall dislike for the acting, directing, length, and writing. It received an average rating of 18% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the lowest rated film of the franchise, although some praised the action scenes, visual effects, and Wahlberg’s and Stanley Tucci’s performances. Despite the poor critical reception, the film was a commercial success, grossing over $1 billion in worldwide box office revenue.
