Penulis


400 MUTIARA BERHARGA A

FAbraham Lincolnf ( Presiden AS ke-16 )

The Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good form the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book.

“Alkitab adalah pemberian Allah terbaik yang tidak bisa diberikan manusia. Semua yang baik dari juruselamat dunia diceritakan melalui buku ini.”

19


400 MUTIARA BERHARGA ”Anda tidak akan mampu membangun sebuah karakter dan keberanian seseorang dengan merampas inisiatif dan kebebasannya.” ”Saya memang seorang yang melangkah dengan lambat, tetapi saya tidak akan pernah berjalan mundur ke belakang.” ”Pada akhirnya bukanlah tahun-tahun sepanjang hidupmu yang bermakna, namun hidupmu sepanjang tahun-tahun itu.” ”Saya lebih baik gagal dalam suatu tujuan yang pada akhirnya akan berhasil, daripada berhasil dalam suatu tujuan yang akhirnya akan gagal.” ”Hampir semua orang mampu menanggung kemalangan, tetapi jika Anda ingin menguji karakter seseorang, beri dia kekuasaan.”

FAdel Bestavrosf ( Teolog Mesir )

”Kesabaran menghadapi sesama adalah cinta. Kesabaran menghadapi diri sendiri adalah harapan. Kesabaran menghadapi kehendak Tuhan adalah keimanan.”

20


400 MUTIARA BERHARGA

FAlbert Einsteinf ( Ilmuwan )

”Imajinasi itu lebih penting daripada ilmu pengetahuan.” ”Setiap orang gila yang jenius bisa membuat sesuatu lebih besar, lebih kompleks, dan lebih sengit. Dibutuhkan sentuhan jenius dan keberanian untuk melawan arus. Imajinasi lebih penting daripada pengetahuan.” ”Kemapanan dan kesendirian dari ketenangan hidup mampu menstimulasi pikiran kreatif kita.”

”Kelemahan dalam berperilaku berujung pada kelemahan karakter.” ”Jangan berusaha menjadi manusia yang sukses, tetapi jadilah manusia yang mempunyai nilai.” ”Jika anda tidak dapat menjelaskan sesuatu hal secara sederhana, itu artinya anda belum cukup paham.”

21


400 MUTIARA BERHARGA

FAlexander Graham Bellf ( Ilmuwan, penemu )

”Ketika satu pintu tertutup, maka pintu lain terbuka. Namun kita seringkali terpaku menyesali pintu yang tertutup itu, hingga tak bisa melihat pintu lain yang terbuka bagi kita.”

FAlexander Dumas Peref ( Sastrawan )

”Semua jenis kebijaksanaan itu berakar pada dua kata, kesabaran dan harapan.” FAlfin Toflerf

( Ilmuwan ) ”Lebih mudah bicara soal perubahan, ketimbang melakukan perubahan.”

FAmos Jayaratnamf ( Hamba Tuhan )

”Kita tidak akan melihat visi sebelum hidup kita diubah.” ”Tuhan tidak akan memakai kita kalau kita tidak setia.”

22


400 MUTIARA BERHARGA

FAmy Carmichaelf ”Anda dapat memberi tanpa kasih. Tetapi Anda tidak dapat mengasihi tanpa memberi.”

FAnaxagorasf ( Filsuf )

”Penampilan fisik hanyalah sekilas dari apa yang sebenarnya tidak terlihat.” FAnne McCaffreyf ( Novelis fiksi ilmiah )

”Siapa yang mencoba, maka terjadilah. Siapa yang berkehendak, maka tercapailah. Dan siapa yang mencinta, maka hiduplah.”

FAnatole Francef ( Penulis )

”Untuk meraih cita-cita besar, kita tak hanya perlu bertindak, juga harus bermimpi; tidak hanya perlu merencanakan, namun harus meyakini.”
