Incredible Emote

I watched “The Incredibles” sa pirated DVD.
Leche, napaiyak ako dun.
Aling part? Nung sinabi ni Mr. Incredible kay ElastiGirl na, “I can’t lose you again… I’m not strong enough…”. Pagkatapos niya sabihin yon, kiniss sya ni ElastiGirl sa lips (by the way, at this point, mag-asawa na yung dalawa).
Strength is not defined as how we can handle problems alone. Strength is seen when we can smile in spite of adversity… when we’re beside someone we love. True strength comes with dependence, not with independence.
Sa movie, Mr. Incredible lied to his wife to protect her. He tried to keep her safe because he didn’t want to lose his strength – his wife.
Sometimes we have to do drastic things to protect the ones we love. Sometimes we have to lie to them or even sacrifice our own wellbeing for their own.
Ang problema nga lang, namimisunderstand ng mga mahal natin yung ginawa natin. Namimisunderstand lang tayo kahit ginawa na natin ang lahat para sa kanila. Masakit diba? Oo. Saying lang, hindi kasi ako superhero e.
Mamaya panunuorin ko yung Spiderman 2, tapos magpopost ulit ako. Pasensya na, mag-isa lang ako ngayong bagong taon e.
Happy New Year.

ang romantic, di ba...nagsinungaling xa to keep her safe...romantic...pero, tama ba?

does the end justify the means? is the means justified by the end?

i don't agree with Machiavelli.

si machiavelli yung sumulat nung The Prince...may pagka political ang dating...how to rule a state, etc. sbi nya may mga virtues na nakakapagpabagsak sa isang ruler, kaya kung minsan bale wala ang mga ito...meron din daw mga bad traits pero effective para sa success ng isang ruler...

in a way, he's justifying evil in ruling the state... the end justifying the means... :)

here are some quotes from his book:
Chapter 15

"a man who wishes to act entirely up to his professions of virtue soon meets with what destroys him among so much that is evil. "

"Hence it is necessary for a prince wishing to hold his own to know how to do wrong, and to make use of it or not according to necessity. "

Chapter 16

"We have not seen great things done in our time except by those who have been considered mean; the rest have failed. "

Chapter 18

"You must know there are two ways of contesting, the one by the law, the other by force; the first method is proper to men, the second to beasts; but because the first is frequently not sufficient, it is necessary to have recourse to the second. Therefore it is necessary for a prince to understand how to avail himself of the beast and the man. "

Chapter 19

"And here it should be noted that hatred is acquired as much by good works as by bad ones, therefore, as I said before, a prince wishing to keep his state is very often forced to do evil; for when that body is corrupt whom you think you have need of to maintain yourself- it may be either the people or the soldiers or the nobles- you have to submit to its humours and to gratify them, and then good works will do you harm. "

*may pagka-selfish xa, no? mas gusto ko yung ginawa ni Mr. Incredible... :)
