Semasa muda, tak banyak perkara yang hendak dirisaukan, apatah lagi semasa di alam persekolahan/universiti, risau apabila dah nak dekat exam atau dah 'due' untuk submit assignment etc. Masuk alam pekerjaan, risau lain pula. Risau bagaimana hendak 'mula' kerja, hendah bergaul, hendak 'execute'.....lagi sedih kalau risau 'tak dapat' kerja. Mula kerja, pasti teringin hendak berkereta sendiri, rumah kena sewa, pelbagai bil kena bayar, tambang LRT/Bas/Teksi, duit petrol, duit makan etc. Apabila dah lama sikit kerja, teringin nak punya harta sendiri, beli rumah, tukar kereta yang lebih selesa, fesyen kena tukar - lebih-lebih lagi tinggal di bandar besar dan pengaruh persekitaran kerja, yang perempuan takan nak beli kain harga RM20 sepasang, yang teruna takan masih nak jengah kedai Bata untuk beli kasut kerja. Masa ini juga sepatutnya sudah kena menabung sikit-sikit untuk wang hantaran/nikah, ada juga yang menabung untuk hantar ibubapa ke Mekah atau bantu adik-adik menyambung pelajaran.
Just for thought...............
A student asks a teacher, "What is love?" The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick." The student went to the field, go thru first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wonders.... may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one... but may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him. Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he start to realize that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, he know he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted. So, he ended up went back to the teacher with empty hand. The teacher told him, "...this is love... you keep looking for a better one, but when later you realize, you have already miss the person...."
"What is marriage then?" the student asked. The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick." The student went to the corn field, this time he is careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reach the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he feel satisfy, and come back to the teacher. The teacher told him, "This time you bring back a corn.... you look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get.... this is marriage."
