1. "Dia tahu, bahawa sultan dan pembesar negeri Melaka itu sudah maklum sejak tahun 1448, pasti Portugis akan datang kembali menyerang!

Kenapa Melaka mampu berbelanja untuk dayang-dayang istana, sultan dan pembesar negeri berlebihan waktu dan tenaga untuk menggiliri selir, tetapi tidak berbelanja membina armada? Kenapa Melaka begitu mudah beri gelar laksamana kepada pendekar silat, tetapi tidak membina kekuatan daya tempur angkatan laut?"

Today's Quote

You are constantly told in depression that your judgment is compromised, but a part of depression is that it touches cognition. That you are having a breakdown does not mean that your life isn't a mess. If there are issues you have successfully skirted or avoided for years, they come cropping back up and stare you full in the face, and one aspect of depression is a deep knowledge that the comforting doctors who assure you that your judgment is bad are wrong. You are in touch with the real terribleness of your life. You can accept rationally that later, after the medication sets in, you will be better able to deal with the terribleness, but you will not be free of it. When you are depressed, the past and future are absorbed entirely by the present moment, as in the world of a three-year-old. You cannot remember a time when you felt better, at least not clearly; and you certainly cannot imagine a future time when you will feel better."
