Dalam cinta yang murni dibutuhkan kepercayaan, adakalanya kekuatan cinta mencipta rasa saling menyakiti. Namun dengan kekuatannya pula, cinta yang murni tak membiarkan itu terjadi.
Harus Dibedakan mana cinta sejati dan mana cinta yang dihiasi kepalsuan. Satu-satunya cinta sejati yang sangat mudah kita temui, adalah cinta seorang ibu pada anaknya.
Dalam Cinta sejati terkadang menimbulkan luka. Dan luka karenanya selalu membuat diri lebih dewasa.
Mustahil engkau merasakan cinta tanpa pernah merasakan sakit dan pengkhianatan. Sebab cinta sejati dapat engkau temui jika telah merasa perih dan luka didada.
Kesetiaan ibarat mahkota bertahta intan permata, ketika engkau mengabaikannya, hilanglah sudah keagungan dan kemewahan diri.
Jangan terlemahkan oleh angin permasalahan. Layang-layang mampu terbang tinggi karena berani melawan angin. Hanya layang-layang yang putus benang yang hanyut oleh angin.
Yang paling menyakitkan dalam sebuah hubungan adalah pengkhianatan, dan lebih menyakitkan lagi ketika yang melakukannya adalah orang yang paling anda percayai.
Percayalah bahwa sebuah senyum meskipun saat terluka, akan lebih mempesona dibandingkan tertawa yang dipenuhi kemunafikan.
Jangan hanya karena engkau merasa kaya raya lalu bisa membeli sebuah kebahagiaan dan cinta yang suci. Kebahagiaan dan Cinta tidak serta merta anda dapatkan dengan kekayaan, melainkan dengan perasaan yang tulus dan menerima takdir Ilahi dengan kerelaan hati
Kebahagiaan yang diukur dengan harta melimpah ruah bukan lah sesuatu yang salah. Namun berucap syukur atas segala yang Tuhan beri adalah kebahagiaan sejati.
Masa-masa terbaik dalam hidup adalah saat kita mampu menyelesaikan masalah sendiri, Masa-masa suram kehidupan adalah saat kita menyalahkan orang lain atas masalah yang kita hadapi.
Ketika dalam sebuah persimpangan, anda diharuskan memutus sebuah langkah. Pastikan langkah yang diambil adalah demi kebahagiaannya, meskipun rasa sakit yang kan kita terima.
Musafir yang dahaga di gurun pasir masih bisa bertahan. Namun jika hati yang dahaga akan cinta bisa mati perlahan dalam kesepian
Jangan berkata, “kamu pasti bahagia jika bersamaku”, tapi berkatalah, “Selagi nafas ada dalam diri, kebahagiaanmu adalah prioritasku”.
Hidup adalah memilih, namun untuk memilih dengan baik, Anda harus tahu siapa Anda dan apa yang Anda perjuangkan, ke mana Anda ingin pergi dan mengapa Anda ingin sampai di sana.
Tuhanmu lebih tahu batas rasa sakit yang bisa kau tampung. Jangan sampai engkau menyerah disaat selangkah lagi Tuhanmu mengganti kesakitan dengan sejuta keindahan.
 
Beberapa yang mampu diselami, adalah wanita begitu sangat susah dipahami. Terkadang telah sejuta makna kita berikan, yang ada tetap misteri hati yang kita dapati.
Seseorang tak akan pernah bisa mencintai Anda dengan tulus dan apa adanya, jika Anda selalu menyembunyikan kekurangan Anda darinya.
Pernahkah anda di permalukan seorang wanita gara-gara anda mengatakan setulus hati anda mencintainya? Jika YA, anda lah orang paling beruntung di dunia, karena anda mampu mengungkapkan sebuah kejujuran. Dan wanita itu tak lebih seperti patung liberty, terlihat indah namun tak mampu menyelami makna cinta yang suci.
 
Berapa kali anda di kecewakan olehnya? Tahukah, setiap kekecewaan yang anda rasa, ibarat bunga yang sedang berkembang menuju sempurna. Semakin anda menerima dengan tulus hati, bunga-bunga indah tersebut akan semakin menampakkan diri. Meskipun bisa saja, anda memetiknya bukan dengannya lagi, tapi dengan orang lain yang paham arti menghargai.
Tidak seorang pun punya kemampuan untuk melakukan sesuatu hal sempurna, tapi setiap orang diberi banyak kesempatan untuk melakukan hal yang benar.
Putus asa adalah sebuah episode ter-gelap dalam hidup. Terkadang untuk menyambungnya menjadi harapan baru dibutuhkan sebuah cinta yang benar-benar murni. Salah satu cara sederhana mendapatkannya, adalah dengan menerima takdir yang telah Tuhan beri.
Ketika engkau merasa dunia sangat tak adil terhadapmu. Pikirkanlah, ribuan anak di kolong jembatan berharap bisa berada dalam posisimu.
Satu-satunya cara untuk melakukan pekerjaan besar adalah dengan mencintai apa yang Anda lakukan, walaupun sebenarnya anda membencinya.
Cinta antara dua hati seharusnya membebaskan kita dari segala yang mengekang. Bukan malah membuat kita terkungkung. Memang tak bisa disalahkan, namun harus jujur di akui, konsekuensi dari cinta membuat kita harus pandai-pandai menjaga lisan, mata dan terlebih kesetiaan.

TENTANG CINTA

Late in April, after Native American actors walked off in disgust from the set of Adam Sandler’s latest film, a western sendup that its distributor, Netflix, has defended as being equally offensive to all, a glow of pride spread through several Native American communities.

Tantoo Cardinal, a Canadian indigenous actress who played Black Shawl in “Dances With Wolves,” recalled thinking to herself, “It’s come.” Larry Sellers, who starred as Cloud Dancing in the 1990s television show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” thought, “It’s about time.” Jesse Wente, who is Ojibwe and directs film programming at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, found himself encouraged and surprised. There are so few film roles for indigenous actors, he said, that walking off the set of a major production showed real mettle.

But what didn’t surprise Mr. Wente was the content of the script. According to the actors who walked off the set, the film, titled “The Ridiculous Six,” included a Native American woman who passes out and is revived after white men douse her with alcohol, and another woman squatting to urinate while lighting a peace pipe. “There’s enough history at this point to have set some expectations around these sort of Hollywood depictions,” Mr. Wente said.

The walkout prompted a rhetorical “What do you expect from an Adam Sandler film?,” and a Netflix spokesman said that in the movie, blacks, Mexicans and whites were lampooned as well. But Native American actors and critics said a broader issue was at stake. While mainstream portrayals of native peoples have, Mr. Wente said, become “incrementally better” over the decades, he and others say, they remain far from accurate and reflect a lack of opportunities for Native American performers. What’s more, as Native Americans hunger for representation on screen, critics say the absence of three-dimensional portrayals has very real off-screen consequences.

“Our people are still healing from historical trauma,” said Loren Anthony, one of the actors who walked out. “Our youth are still trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in this society. Kids are killing themselves. They’re not proud of who they are.” They also don’t, he added, see themselves on prime time television or the big screen. Netflix noted while about five people walked off the “The Ridiculous Six” set, 100 or so Native American actors and extras stayed.

But in interviews, nearly a dozen Native American actors and film industry experts said that Mr. Sandler’s humor perpetuated decades-old negative stereotypes. Mr. Anthony said such depictions helped feed the despondency many Native Americans feel, with deadly results: Native Americans have the highest suicide rate out of all the country’s ethnicities.

The on-screen problem is twofold, Mr. Anthony and others said: There’s a paucity of roles for Native Americans — according to the Screen Actors Guild in 2008 they accounted for 0.3 percent of all on-screen parts (those figures have yet to be updated), compared to about 2 percent of the general population — and Native American actors are often perceived in a narrow way.

In his Peabody Award-winning documentary “Reel Injun,” the Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond explored Hollywood depictions of Native Americans over the years, and found they fell into a few stereotypical categories: the Noble Savage, the Drunk Indian, the Mystic, the Indian Princess, the backward tribal people futilely fighting John Wayne and manifest destiny. While the 1990 film “Dances With Wolves” won praise for depicting Native Americans as fully fleshed out human beings, not all indigenous people embraced it. It was still told, critics said, from the colonialists’ point of view. In an interview, John Trudell, a Santee Sioux writer, actor (“Thunderheart”) and the former chairman of the American Indian Movement, described the film as “a story of two white people.”

“God bless ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ” Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk in “Twin Peaks,” said sarcastically. “Even ‘Avatar.’ Someone’s got to come save the tribal people.”

Dan Spilo, a partner at Industry Entertainment who represents Adam Beach, one of today’s most prominent Native American actors, said while typecasting dogs many minorities, it is especially intractable when it comes to Native Americans. Casting directors, he said, rarely cast them as police officers, doctors or lawyers. “There’s the belief that the Native American character should be on reservations or riding a horse,” he said.

“We don’t see ourselves,” Mr. Horse said. “We’re still an antiquated culture to them, and to the rest of the world.”

Ms. Cardinal said she was once turned down for the role of the wife of a child-abusing cop because the filmmakers felt that casting her would somehow be “too political.”

Another sore point is the long run of white actors playing American Indians, among them Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Audrey Hepburn and, more recently, Johnny Depp, whose depiction of Tonto in the 2013 film “Lone Ranger,” was viewed as racist by detractors. There are, of course, exceptions. The former A&E series “Longmire,” which, as it happens, will now be on Netflix, was roundly praised for its depiction of life on a Northern Cheyenne reservation, with Lou Diamond Phillips, who is of Cherokee descent, playing a Northern Cheyenne man.

Others also point to the success of Mr. Beach, who played a Mohawk detective in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and landed a starring role in the forthcoming D C Comics picture “Suicide Squad.” Mr. Beach said he had come across insulting scripts backed by people who don’t see anything wrong with them.

“I’d rather starve than do something that is offensive to my ancestral roots,” Mr. Beach said. “But I think there will always be attempts to drawn on the weakness of native people’s struggles. The savage Indian will always be the savage Indian. The white man will always be smarter and more cunning. The cavalry will always win.”

The solution, Mr. Wente, Mr. Trudell and others said, lies in getting more stories written by and starring Native Americans. But Mr. Wente noted that while independent indigenous film has blossomed in the last two decades, mainstream depictions have yet to catch up. “You have to stop expecting for Hollywood to correct it, because there seems to be no ability or desire to correct it,” Mr. Wente said.

There have been calls to boycott Netflix but, writing for Indian Country Today Media Network, which first broke news of the walk off, the filmmaker Brian Young noted that the distributor also offered a number of films by or about Native Americans.

The furor around “The Ridiculous Six” may drive more people to see it. Then one of the questions that Mr. Trudell, echoing others, had about the film will be answered: “Who the hell laughs at this stuff?”
