Quotes
"How many times have you chickened out?" - Qu Hsueh Ming

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." - Albert Einstein

"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile - hoping it will eat him last." - Sir Winston Churchill

"Affirmative action is something the good don't need and the bad don't deserve" - A wise man

"The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation's greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us." - John F. Kennedy

"The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were." - John F. Kennedy

"I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually." - James A. Baldwin

"Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is but a broken winged bird that cannot fly." - Langston Hughes

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." - Sir Winston Churchill

"Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?" - Alfred Lord Tennyson

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge

"We will either find a way or make one." - Hannibal

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." - Napoleon Bonaparte

"For evil to triumph, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

"War begins in the minds of men, and it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must first be constructed." - UNESCO Constitution

"The proper study of mankind is man." - Alexander Pope

"My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions or its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death." - Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens): A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

"Patriotism is to support your country all the time and your government when it deserves it" - Mark Twain

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man." - George Bernard Shaw

"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it." - George Bernard Shaw

"Democracy is a system ensuring that the people are governed no better than they deserve." - George Bernard Shaw

"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all." -- Noam Chomsky

"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." - George Orwell

"When the people fear the government, you have tyranny. When the government fears the people, you have freedom." - Thomas Paine

"I sense a learning: that much dumber people than you end up in charge. Look at the way things are. I'm no fucken genius or anything, but these spazzos are in charge of my every twitch. What I'm starting to think is maybe only the dumb are safe in this world, the ones who roam with the herd, without thinking about every little thing. But see me? I have to think about every little fucken thing." - Vernon God Little, Act II

Pengetahuan Moral Acronyms ©

One of my kids told me over MSN that all the Moral teachers in my school want my memorization technique. =)

Stupid subject and all that, you know.

But still they've got to take exams, so here goes:


Pengetahuan Moral Acronyms

 © Andrew Loh Zhu An 2006
SMK Damansara Jaya
               

* Usage of Moral Acronyms©  is only suggested. Use own inventions if possible. More personal = Easier to memorise.

 

Bab 1 – Diri

 

K

King

Kepercayaan Kepada Tuhan

A

Andrew

Amanah

H

Hits

Harga Diri

B

Big

Bertanggungjawab

H

Hairy

Hemah Tinggi

T

Tiger

King

Kerajinan

Raj

K

Kong

Kasih Sayang

Loves

K

Kacaus

Keadilan

Adil

R

Ronald's

Rasional

K

Kucing

Kesederhanaan

·       For the KKK in the middle, use Raj Loves Adil to remember which comes first.

 

Bab 2 – Keluarga (K)

 

KeHorMaTan

K

Kasih Sayang terhadap K

H

Hormat dan Taat kepada Anggota K

M

Mengekalkan Tradisi KeKan

T

Tanggungjawab terhadap K

·       Be careful: terhadap is applicable for the first and last nilais, while kepada is the second.

·       Make sure you remember that the third has Kekeluargaan and not Keluarga.

 

Bab 3 – Alam Sekitar (AS)

 

M

Monkey

Menyayangi dan Menghargai AS

K

Kacau

Keharmonian antara Manusia dan AS

K

Bab 4 – Patriotisme

 

CeTuS

C

T

·       Freaking tricky prepositions. Just remember, ALPHABETICAL ORDER. Or remember Andrew's Pink Underwear.

 

Bab 5 – Hak (H)

 

K

King

Melindungi H Kanak-Kanak

W

William

Menghormati H Wanita

P

Puts

Melindungi H Pekerja

G

Giraffes in

Menghormati H Golongan Kurang Berupaya

 p

Pants

Melindungi H Pengguna

·       Even the Moral inventors got bored, so they decided to alternate Melindungi with Menghormati.

·       Melindungi comes before Menghormati, remember, ALPHABETICAL ORDER.

·       Remember the Ber- in Berupaya.

 

Bab 6 – (Pseudo) Demokrasi

 

M

Monkey

Mematuhi Peraturan dan Undang-Undang

K

Kacau

Kebebasan Bersuara

K

Kacau

Kebebasan Beragama

Bab 7 – Keamanan dan Keharmonian

HiSS (rhymes with Peace if you pronounce it as Piss)

H

Hidup Bersama secara Aman

S

Saling Membantu dan Bekerjasama

S

Saling Menghormati antara Negara

omg...when did moral become so freaking complicated? back when i was still studying (which is also a freaking long time ago), we just taruh anything that comes to mind. the basic principle to scoring an A1 then was: the more the answer sounds wrong, the more likely it's right.
Nicholas
February 23, 2008   07:26 AM PST
 
But Sooyin, back in my day when moral had 80 values and subvalues (anybody who took SPM moral back in 1999), you couldn't just taruh everything. There is not enough space or time.

That was provide that you could keep a clear mind of all the relevent value or subvalues that could fit the question

Softtee have designed T-shirts with slogans embracing their relaxed and most chilled out attitudes to everything in general! Your T-shirt is the loudest fashion Statement you can ever make. We all believe; what we wear says a lot about our personality... so convey your messages in the form of logo and ultimately show your attitude!

I very hardly ever study different blogs on web since most of them are time losing technique. However , I have to say that this post is totally opposite way round.
