The things that go unsaid are often the things that eat at you–whether because you didn’t get to have your say, or because the other person never got to hear you and really wanted to.

Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You

Finish what you’ve started and start what you’ve promised. -Windy Ariestanty-

Butuh konsistensi yang besar serta kegigihan untuk terus mencoba namun kata ‘tetapi’ sering kali menghalangi niat dan keinginan ini. Mungkin harus lebih berusaha menghapus kata ‘tetapi’ itu dalam diri agar tidak terperangkap sehingga membuat keinginan menjadi maju-mundur, serta niat menjadi naik-turun. Mungkin harus lebih tekun mencoba agar terbiasa hingga menjadi tak terasa.

Fireproof: Movie Quotes

I have been watching a movie that is really touchable, the title is Fireproof. This movie is one of the great movies that I’ve ever watched. It tells about second change, love, marriage life, and commitment. I really recommended this film for who are getting married and have problem in their marriage. I hope this film can help their marriage problems. There are some quotes that I found from the movie. 

About a Lifelong Commitment symbolized by a wedding ring
“You putting on that ring while saying your vows. The saddest part about it is when most people promise for better or worse, they really only mean for the better.”

About Difference and Divorce
“Salt and pepper are completely different. Their makeup, their taste, and their color is different. But you always see them together. They give a more delicious taste to the cooked food.”

(The scene when Captain Michael, Caleb’s colleague, glued salt and pepper bottles)
“When two people get married, it’s for better or for worse, like these joined salt and pepper. For richer or for poorer. In sickness and in health. If you pull them apart, you’ll break either one or both of them. God made marriage to be for life.”

About a Fireproof Marriage
“Fireproof doesn’t mean that a fire will never come… But that when it comes, you’ll be able to withstand it.”

About Studying Your Spouse
“When a man is trying to win the heart of a woman, he studies her. He learns her likes, dislikes, habits, and hobbies. But after he wins her heart and marries her, he often stops learning about her. If the amount he studied her before marriage was equal to a high school degree, he should continue to learn about her until he gains a college degree, a master’s degree, and ultimately a doctorate degree. It is a lifelong journey that draws his heart ever close to hers”

About the Feel of Giving Up
“The halfway point is tend to be the hardest one. Because it’s when you determine whether your heart’s in it or not. Makes you check your real motives when things get difficult.”

About God’s Standards
“If we consider that we are good people, remember that God judges us not with our standard, but by His standard. His standards are so high, He considers hatred to be murder… and lust to be adultery. If you broke one of His commandments, one day you’ll answer Him for that.”

About True Love
Caleb: “How am I supposed to show love to somebody over and over and over who constantly rejects me?”

See the cross of Christ…

Caleb’s Dad: “You can’t love your wife because you can’t give her what you don’t have. I couldn’t truly love your mother till I understood what love really was. It’s not because I get some reward out of it. I’ve now made a decision to love your mother whether she deserves it or not.
Son, God loves you even though you don’t deserve it. Even though you’ve rejected Him, spat in His face…”

– You can only truly love someone (people) by God’s love –

About Keeping Your Marriage Vows
“God made marriage to be for life. That’s why you gotta keep your vows to your spouse. You gotta ask God to teach you how to be a good husband/wife. And don’t just follow your heart, because your heart can be deceived. But you gotta lead your heart.”

About Cheating On Your Spouse
“If someone is trying to woo you while you’re still married, what makes you think he won’t do that with someone else?”

About Hard Times
“Never leave your partner behind, especially in a fire.”
