teacher of the world

29 10 2009

one quote from ego (ratatouille) – not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere.

i guess the word artist there can be changed to cook (as it happens in the movie rattatouile), or leader (as it always seems to be the topic most talked about in just about any country in the world), but in my case, the word is teacher. not everyone can become a great teacher, but a great teacher can come from anywhere. and one of them i just found in a song.

this morning i listened to a song by ebiet g. ade, berita kepada kawan. the song really says a lot. so much.

mungkin Tuhan mulai bosan melihat tingkah kita yang selalu salah dan bangga dengan dosa-dosa. atau alam mulai enggan bersahabat dengan kita. coba kita tanyakan pada rumput bergoyang.

it’s teaching me to look inside and ask, what good have i done for the world? it’s teaching me to look outside and ponder, what is the world trying to say to me? i need to learn to search within. i need to learn to look around. will i get the answers? if i try hard enough, i might. i just might.
