The glory of friendship

is not

the outstretched hand,

nor the kindly smile,

nor the joy of companionship.

It is the spiritual inspiration

that comes to one

when he discovers that someone else

believes in him

and is willing to trust him.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~


I’m sorry about those ‘disrespectful’ comments made in the latest article (April 5 by Andrew Loh) written at theonlinecitizen.com. Comments should be made on the issue of the article and not attacking another personally. Ashame and regretful that I left my comment there. I believe I’m living in a different generation where there is little self-censor to what is written publicly and what not?

I agree with Elfredinario (Elfred’s Enclave) that our MM had spoken about Singaporeans’ complacency in a general context for some time now. Lifting a passage out of context to draw remarks is immature and unkind, not mentioning it’s unethical.
